Madison County, NY Biographies





Hecox, Charles L., p. o. Peterboro, was born on the farm he owns in 1854, a son of John, and grandson of Obed Hecox and Emily Kenyon; he was one of the early settlers of Oneida county, where he lived and died. John A. Hecox came from Oneida county March 1. 1848, to the town of Smithfield and settled on the farm Charles L. now owns, about 1849, and here lived until his death, November 10, 1898, at the age of seventy three years. He married Sybil Neal, daughter of Martin Neal and Roxy Porter, early settlers in Oneida county and who now resides with her son on the homestead. Charles L. Hecox was educated in the common schools and is a farmer. He is a natural born machinist and has been engaged in threshing for twenty seven years. He also owns on his farm a mill for grinding feed and conducts quite an extensive business in that line. In politics he is a Democrat, though not an aspirant to office, preferring to live the life of an independent farmer. In 1876 he married Florence E. Weyer of Nelson, daughter of Delos Weyer and Hannah Bates of Nelson, and granddaughter of Rufus Weyer, sr., and Amy Smith on her father's side, and of Archibald Bates, sr., and Anna Clough on her mother's side; they had two children: Albert E., born July 13, 1878, (deceased) and Caroline B., born June 14, 1884.
