Madison County, NY Biographies





Coe, Mrs. Mary, - Lewis Elliott Coe, who for more than twenty years was engaged in successful mercantile business in Bouckville, and who was looked upon as one of the self made men of the village, was born in Hamilton, November 9, 1847, and was the oldest of two children of William Church Coe. His father died when Lewis was eleven years old, upon which the boy went to live with the family of an uncle in Augusta. At the age of twenty one he came to Bouckville, where he was clerk for Milton Danforth, remaining with him until he failed in business and then succeeding him in the store. Mr. Coe became proprietor January 1, 1875, and was in trade to the time of his death, February 28, 1897. The firm of Coe & Brockett was formed in 1882 and the name is still known to the trade. Mr. Coe was a strong Republican and a generous, public spirited man in all things. From 1874 to 1886 he was postmaster at Bouckville. On October 23, 1872, he married Mary, daughter of Marcius Washburn, by whom he had three children: Dr. Charles M. Coe of Rochester; Edna L., and Lillian A. Mr. Coe was brought up under Universalist influence, but was a liberal supporter of the local M. E. church.
