Biography of Eli B. Smith
Franklin County, NY Biographies





Eli B. Smith was born in Chateaugay August 11, 1806, and made that place his home for about sixty years, when he removed to Malone. Though always leading a quiet life, and apparently caring for little that was not of a business nature, he yet had a very strong interest in public matters. He gave the site for the Chateaugav high school, a lot for an engine house in Chateaugay, the organ to the Chateaugay Presbyterian church, a considerable collection of booki to The Wead Library in Malone, and the chimes to the Congregational church of Malone. He died January 15, 1890.
