Biography of Lorenzo Coburn
Franklin County, NY Biographies





Lorenzo Coburn, born in Constable December 27, 1812, became principal of Franklin Academy, after which he had many wanderings and various occupations. He was a miller and merchant in a small way at Constable, and then engaged in market gardening, having been the first to supply residents of the village of Malone in a systematic way with berries and early vegetables. In his later years he lived in Kansas, New Jersey and South Dakota, and always the place of his latest location was the best and most promising in the world. For many years he sent letters regularly to the Palladium, and, regardless of the text, he invariably made them interesting. He died at Vermillion, S. D., July 28, 1898.
