Rinewalt, A. L., Amherst, p. o. Williamsville, one of the leading editors and moulders of public opinion, was born in Williamsville, May 4, 1849, and educated in the district school and the academy of his native place. In 1865 he moved to Beloit, Wis., and endered upon his apprenticeship as a printer. He remained there until 1870, when he returned east Mad took a position on the Commercial Advertiser of Buffalo, N. Y., and remained with that paper until 1879, when he came to Williamsville and established the Amherst Bee, which has become a leading country paper in Western New York. Mr. Rinewalt has been successful as a business man as well as an editor, and has always been a promoter of enterprises and an exponent of progress. He was one of the first to advocate the construction of the Buffalo and Williamsville Electric Road and is one of the stockholders and a director of the company. He is also largely interested in real estate and takes a lively interest in the welfare and progress of Williamsville. He was collector for the town of Amherst in 1881, was trustee of Williamsville for nine years, a member of the Board of Education eleven years, and for several years past president of the board, and was postmaster during Harrison's administration. September 18, 1878, Mr. Rinewalt married Sarah Filena Bloker of Williamsville. His parents were among the early settlers of the town of Amherst.
