Mayhew, Fred W., a son of E. Bruce and Lodema (Penny) Mayhew (well known as a successful farmer and milk dealer), was born in the town of Brownville, Jefferson county, N. Y., December 9, 1859. His common school education was supplemented by a course at the Adams Collegiate Institute, and several years as a teacher in the schools of the town. In 1882 the ambitious young man went West and was engaged as a traveling salesman for a leading boot and shoe house of Rockford, Ill., in whose employ he remained for three years. Upon his return to Jefferson county he became identified with the milk business, as an employee of his uncle. It was not long until he embarked in business on his own account, and is now one of the largest milk dealers in Jefferson county. Mr. Mayhew is president of the Watertown Milk Association, a member of the Watertown Grange No. 7, and a prominent member of the K. of P., being a member of the Mounted Division, U. R. K. of P. In 1897 Mr. Mayhew was elected supervisor of Pamelia. In November, 1877, he married Ella M., daughter of Jacob and Annette (Estes) Enders, who died April 24, 1862, leaving three children: Valerie, aged thirteen years; Jennie, aged nine years; and Edwin, aged six years.
