Biography of William C. Gardiner

Gardiner, William C., was born in Hamilton, N.Y., January 2, 1842, a son of Charles B. and Malvina T. (Slocum) Gardiner. His father was a contractor and builder and erected some of the public buildings of Madison county. The family trace their descent from Lyon Gardiner, who built the fort at Saybrook, Conn., and was the owner of Gardiner's Island, which is still in the possession of his descendants. W. C. Gardiner was educated in Hamilton. In 1861 he enlisted in Co. D, 26th N. Y. Vols., with rank of first lieutenant and was discharged in 1863. Returning home he began the practice of dentistry, and in 1874 came to Batavia and practiced until 1890, when he became one of the reorganizers of the Batavia Carriage Wheel Co., of which he is vice-president. In 1863 Mr. Gardiner married Elizabeth, daughter of Erastus D. Wheeler; they have one son, Charles Wheeler Gardiner, now practicing medicine in New York.
