Biography of Joseph F. Stutterd

Stutterd, Joseph F., was born in the town of Stafford, this county, February 3, 1836. His father, also named Joseph, was a native of England but came to Genesee county in 1828 and engaged in farming. He died April 1, 1871, after a life of usefulness. His wife was Sarah Pidge, and two children were born to them: Sarah M., who died in January, 1884, and the subject of this notice. Joseph F. Stutterd was educated at the Genesee and Wyoming Seminary at Alexander, and at the Albany Normal School, where he prepared for the profession of teaching. This occupation he followed with good success for ten years and then began farming on the old homestead farm. Mr. Stutterd is one of the reprsentative men of his town and has taken an active part in movements intended to promote its welfare. Few men in Genesee county enjoy so wide an acquaintance with its people; he is well posted in current events which he discusses among his friends with intelligence and discrimination. Possessed of a fine baritone voice he has always been much interested in musical matters; neither has he neglected the schools and churches. In politics he is a staunch Republican. He served, one term as justice of the peace, as one of the Sessions judges of the county for three terms (1891-92-93). and represented his town in the board of supervisors in 1870, 1871, 1881, 1882 and 1887-five years in all. Mr. Stutterd married Clara Alexander, and they have one daughter, Clara B. Stutterd.
