Biography of Samuel Parker


SAMUEL PARKER was born in Elba, N. Y., September 22, 1834, son of Sherred and Sarah (Williams) Parker. Sherred Parker was born in Massachusetts August 4, 1794, and with his parents, Samuel and Mary Parker, came to Byron, N. Y., in 1806. Like many other early residents of Western New York, he served for a time in the war of 1812. He was a prominent man in his town, public spirited and liberal in his support of educational and religious institutions. He filled many positions of trust, and his judgment was sought and respected; he died November 18, 1875.

Samuel Parker was educated in the common schools and at Albion Academy. He has been a practical farmer, making a success of that calling. He has been a justice of the peace, president of the Genesee County Agricultural Society, and during the years 1878 and 1879 was supervisor for Elba. He is a sound Republican and has voted the ticket since the organization of the party. In April, 1898, he was elected president of the First National Bank of Batavia, succeeding the late Levant C. McIntyre. He brought to the discharge of his duties excellent judgment, of men and affairs, long business experience and that other prime requisite for a successful bank president, public confidence. On April 10, 1861, Mr. Parker was married to Alice L., daughter of Orlo R. Clark of Elba (now of Batavia). Their children are B. Clark, who married Mary C. Fuller of Oakfield, H. Bert, and Carrie P., wife of Lewis H. Chase of Philadelphia. The family are attendants at the Presbyterian church.
