Biography of Eugene M. Voisinet

NAVAGATION





Voisinet, Eugene M., Buffalo, was born February 24, 1864, in the town of Tonawanda, Erie county, N.Y. Louis Voisinet, his father, born in Belfort, France, January 15, 1820, came to America with his father, also named Louis, in 1829, settling on a farm of eighty acres in what is now Kenmore, near the Buffalo city line, where he died November 20, 1883. This farm he increased to 130 acres; it greatly increased in value, and after his death was largely cut up into suburban building lots, many of which now form an attractive part of the suburb of Kenmore, in Tonawanda. He was a prosperous farmer, a public spirited citizen, and served his town as assessor. His wife, Mary Bagard, who survives him, was born in Nancy, France, April 7, 1829, and came to America with her parents in 1831. Their children were Louis N., who resides on the homestead; Eugene M. and Josephine (Mrs. Jacob W. Abel) of Buffalo; Mary (Mrs. Julius Bagard) of Amherst, and Emily, deceased. Eugene M. Voisinet attended the district schools, was graduated from public school No. 16, Buffalo, and took a course at Bryant & Stratton's Business College. He remained on the homestead until May, 1890, and since then has been engaged in the real estate business in Buffalo.
