Madison County, NY Biographies





Dexter, Edwin N., p. o. Morrisville, who since 1887 has been in general mercantile business at Morrisville, and who during that time has established one of the most substantial interests of the county seat, was the youngest of the children in the family of William Dexter of Stockbridge. William Dexter came to the county when a young man, and is remembered as a cabinet maker and undertaker in his town. His wife was Fanny Harrington. and to them these children was born: Florence of Morrisville; Clarence W., of Munnsville; Charles H., a well known school teacher; Fanny, wife of Rev. J. H. Zartman; Eunice, who died when a child, and Edwin N., now of Morrisville. The well known firm of C. W. Dexter & Bro. was established at Munnsville in 1883, and was continued with good results until 1887, when Edwin N. Dexter sold out and came to Morrisville. He first bought a small store " on the hill," where he did business until 1890 when he removed to the old Townsend site "on the flats," in the village and where his greatest business success has been achieved; it is not an idle compliment to say that Mr. Dexter is regarded as one of the most prosperous merchants in this county. On July 23, 1885, he married Dora H. Lyman of Stockbridge, by whom he has four children. Mr. Dexter is a firm Republican, but not active in politics. He is a member and trustee of the Congregational Church.
