Heth, G. W., was born on the homestead January 21, 1845. His father, Peter Heth, came from Hoosick with his parents, Timothy and Ora Heth, in 1820, settling first in the town of Lee, where Timothy was a manufacturer of rakes, fanning mills and spinning wheels. Peter Heth married Ruth Richardson and was one of the leading farmers of Jefferson county; he died in 1888 and his widow in 1892. G. W. Heth was educated in the common schools; starting in life without any means, he has, by his own energy and perseverance, been one of the largest dealers in live stock in Jefferson county, adding 554 acres to his father's estate, and is at the present time one of the largest farmers in that county, making a specialty of stock and grain raising.
