Biography of Phineas Howe of Elba, NY

Phineas Howe, now aged 95 years and living with his son on East Main street, Batavia, moved to Elba from Pennsylvania with his parents in 1810. He went to school only two winters, with Moses McIntyre as his teacher, in the old school house on the Howe farm. He was assessor for 10 years. Over 68 years ago he built the first house where liquor was no used in the raising, and is to-day still firm in his temperance principles. He is a well preserved old man.
