Carpenter, Austin B., p. o. Morrisville, sheriff of Madison county, was born in old historic Pompey, Onondaga county, July 3, 1861, and was the son of Major and Abigail Carpenter of that town. At the age of twenty one Austin left home and went to De Rustier, remaining one year, and them came to Morrisville, where he was jailor under Sheriff Underwood about eighteen months; later on he was village deputy sheriff and constable four years and then removed to Cazenovia, where he was deputy sheriff, town constable, and policeman for a term of eight years. In the fall of 1896 he was elected sheriff and according to the unanimous expression of the bar of the county is one of the most competent officers who ever filled that office.

In 1885 he married Anna, daughter of Bartlett Fitzgerald of Morrisville. They have two children: Jennie L. and Blanche J.
