Biography of Anson Torpy

Torpy, Anson, was born in Madison county, N.Y., in 1801, and came to Genesee county in 1822. He was twice married; his first wife was Fannie Stocking, who died in 1871, leaving three children, Rosina (Mrs. C. H. Reynolds), Daniel and Reuben. In 1873 he married Emily, daughter of Clinton Arnold. Mr. Torpy died in 1889. He was one of the pioneers of the county, and took an active part in the growth and progress of his town. As instances of his pioneership, he drew his wheat thirty miles to Rochester and sold it for fifty cents a bushel, and the young trees for his first orchard he carried on his back from Bergen; the orchard is still in bearing. He was a man of strong character and unquestioned integrity, and in his death his town lost one of its most useful and esteemed citizens.
