Biography of D. R. Coe
Madison County, NY Biographies





Coe, D. R., son of Albert E. and Charlotte (Read) Coe, was born in the town of Smithfield, this county, in 1846. His father was a farmer and subsequently a met chant and broker in Oneida, becoming well known throughout this section. He died in 1887. Mr. Coe was educated in the old Oneida Seminary and at Madison University, now Colgate University, from which he was graduated with the class of 1872. Soon afterward he was appointed deputy clerk of the United States Circuit Court at Utica, a position which he held for eight years and then, after a short western trip, returned to Oneida to care for his father's extensive interests during the latter's illness. After his father's death Mr. Coe took charge of the estate as administrator. In 1890 he engaged in the hardware business, buying an interest in the firm of H. M. Reynolds & Co., which on his admission became Millspangh & Coe, and so continued until the spring of 1896 when Mr. Millspaugh retired. In the fall of the same year the present firm of Coe & Timennan was formed by the admission of G. A. Timerman. Mr. Coe married, in 1885, Sarah Allan, daughter of Moses Allan of Utica. Three sons have been born of this union: Allan Read; Stanley Campbell; and David Donald.
