Guiteau, Jerome C., was born in Livingston county, N. Y., May 20, 1839, a son of Loring Martin and Sarah M. (Cranmer) Guiteau. The family are descended from French Huguenots. Loriug M. Guiteau was born June 29, 1806. After obtaining his education he learned the tanner's trade at Perry village, Wyoming county, N.Y. After finishing his apprenticeship he established a tannery and boot and shoe factory in Springwater, Livingston county, N. Y., and carried on the business a number of years. He sold out and removed to South Alabama, Genesee county, and established a tannery; this business he continued about six years, when he sold it and moved to Kerryville in the same county, remaining one year, and then to Richville, same county, where he carried on tanning one year. He then, in 1856, settled in Batavia and was associated with his son, J. C. Guiteau, in the leather and findings trade in Batavia with a tannery at East Pembroke; this business subsequently passed wholly to the son. Mr. Guiteau died in Batavia, October 8, 1879. J. C. Guiteaii came to Batavia in 1856, a little earlier than his father, and established the leather, hide and findings store above mentioned, which he carried on for more than thirty years. In 1889 he entered upon his present business of insurance and real estate. In 1862 he married Mary Thompson; they have two children-George J. and Helen M., wife of William C. Underhill. Mr. Guiteau is one of the self-made men of Genesee county, and takes an active interest in educational and other public affairs. He served as county treasurer two terms, from 1880 to 1886.
