Madison County, NY Biographies





Ledyard, George S., who died in Cazenovia, November 3, 1890, in the sixty fifth year of his age, was one of the most prominent citizens of Madison county, and a member of one of the oldest families of the State. He was the third son of General J. D. Ledyard. His older brothers were Lincklaen and John Denise, and after their death George S. and L. Wolters succeeded to the business of the Holland Land Company. Thus, connected with one of the earliest business enterprises of this country he lived as did his father before him, a life of great usefulness and unswerving integrity. Mr. Ledyard was a native of Cazenovia and although he spent much time in travel always kept his residence in that village. No public improvement of importance was made during his lifetime with which his name was not connected, and he was foremost in every movement for the welfare of the village. Many evidences of his public spirit and private generosity are in existence. He held at different periods various village offices, the duties of which were invariably discharged with fidelity and ability. Mr. Ledyard's great business capabilities, his strict integrity, and staunch uprightness of character, and withal his gentleness and unassuming manner won for him a place in the hearts of all who knew him.
