Darrow, C. F., p. o. Middletown, N. Y. - William Harrison Darrow, the youngest of the children of David and Elizabeth (Enos) Darrow, was born at West Eaton, N. Y., in 1826 and died in 1878, at Cazenovia. His early life was spent in Eaton as a farmer on the old homestead until about 1866, when he became a member of the firm of Barnes, Mitchell & Darrow, who for some time operated the lower woolen mill at West Eaton. He then sold out his interest and removed to a farm near Cazenovia, where he engaged extensively in agricultural pursuits. He was a progressive and very successful farmer and an upright and respected citizen. His wife was Margaret A., daughter of James Tackabury and Anna Belton, one of the old and respected families of the county, of Scotch Irish descent. They had children, Charles F., born 1857, of Middletown, N. Y., who is secretary of The Breed Publishing Co.; Robert Irving, born 1860, who has a position on the editorial staff of the Denver Republican, Denver, Col.; William J., born 1863, a successful teacher at Westwater, Utah; and George Harrison, and Frank D., twin sons born 1870. The latter are treasurer and secretary of the Westwater Irrigation and Land Co., a corporation which is extensively engaged in developing a large fruit tract in the Grand Valley and in cattle raising; this corporation is controlled by the sons of William Harrison Darrow, who also conduct a general mercantile business under the firm name of Darrow Bros. Their mother, a woman of strong intellect and beautiful character, resides (1899) at Denver, Colo.
