Biography of Warren Wire


Wire, Warren, one of the old and substantial residents of Tonawanda, was born in Herkimer county in 1824. Jacob Wire, his father, was a native of New Jersey, born in 1772, and a pioneer of Tonawanda, having settled and cleared a farm of 185 acres there in early days, coming here in 1830. His wife was Anna Hager, and they reared six sons and six daughters. Mrs. Wire lived to be ninety-one years of age, dying in 1872. Jacob Wire was always actively interested in the politics of his town, held the office of supervisor and was well liked by all who knew him: he and his wife spent their last days in Tonawanda. Warren Wire remained and cared for his parents and conducted the farm until 1891, when he sold his farm and since then has led a retired life. In politics he is a Republican, though he never sought public office. His wife was Elizabeth Zimmerman of Tonawanda and daughter of Adam Zimmerman, and they had one son and two daughters. Mrs. Wire died in 1877. Mr. Wire is the youngest of twelve children and the only one living of his father's family.
