Biography of Julius C. Comstock
Madison County, NY Biographies





Comstock, Julius C., who died in Cazenovia, April 16, 1884, in the sixty third year of his age, was one of the most respected citizens of the community. He was born in July, 1820, in the house east of Cazenovia village which was always his home. His father, Zephaniah Comstock, came from Connecticut into this region among the earlier settlers, taking up the home farm, while Samuel Bordwell, who came with him, took up the farm adjoining. Zephaniah Comstock was a fine type of the sturdy, honest and God fearing pioneer and died in 1877, honored and respected by the entire community. Julius C. Comstock was reared on the farm, receiving the educational advantages afforded by the country schools of those days. All his life he followed the occupation of farming. He served the town as assessor several terms and also as highway commissioner; in politics he was a consistent Republican. In all his relations with his fellowmen during his long residence in this community, his character was above reproach. Mr. Comstock married Martha Root, a daughter of Edward Root of Fenner, who survives him.
