Chick, who has a farm of 186 acres. Mr. Chick is the son of George and Jane (Percy) Chick, who emigrated from England to Batavia, N.

West farm at Cold Spring, Buffalo, which farm of 300 acres his father conducted for nineteen years. His schooling was limited, but being a naturally intelligent youth with a keen perception, he made up for his lack of schooling by those best of teachers, observation and experience.
