----------------------------------------------


Wilbur, S. H., was born in Clayton in 1833. At the age of eight years he left the farm and subsequently learned the trade of carpenter and joiner, which he pursued until two years ago, and has built a great many houses in the village of Clayton, where he still has considerable property interests. Mr. Wilbur is a member of the Masonic fraternity. He has been eight years trustee of the village, which is an evidence of his public popularity. He married Rebecca Colbeck, who died leaving three children: Maggie, Charles and James; for his second wife he married Mary Ormsby, and they have three children: George, Daniel and Lottie. Mr. Wilbur's parents were Freeman and Catherine Wilbur.
