Madison County, NY Biographies





Benjamin, Warren H., p. o. Solsville, who for more than forty years has been identified with business interests in Madison and Solsville, was born in Truxton, and was the son of Charles Benjamin, a shoemaker, who settled in De Ruyter in 1.831. At the age of seventeen years Warren began work as apprentice to the tinsmithing trade, and in April, 1845, began work for Ayer & Arnold. He afterward found employment at Waterville, where he worked two years and in the spring of 1854 located in Madison village and worked for John Morgan till 1864. He soon left the shop and worked four years on a farm in Eaton, but in December, 1868, returned and worked one year in Mr. Woodhull's shop. After a year he and John Morgan bought out the Woodhull shop and carried on a general tinsmithing business till 1871, when the firm dissolved. Mr. Benjamin then worked two years for Mr. Morgan and in the spring of 1875 settled in Solsyille and established a business for himself, dealing in general hardware, groceries and doing a tinsmithing business. From the outset the venture has been successful and Mr. Benjamin is now regarded as one of the solid business men of the town. The firm of W. H. Benjamin & Sons comprises Mr. Benjamin and sons Frank H. and Will H. On January 1, 1849, Mr. Benjamin married Mary J. Waters of Fabius. The children of this marriage were Frank H., Fred D. and Will H. Frank H. Benjamin has been town clerk of Madison for twenty seven years and is one of the active Republicans of the town and county.
