Biography of Charles F. Pennock
Madison County, NY Biographies





Pennock, Charles F., p. o. Chittenango, only surviving son of the late Ebenezer Pennoek, was born at Chittenango in 1854, where he still resides. His father was born in 1821, in Washington county, son of Samuel Pennock of German nativity, who at an early date settled in the vicinity of Perryville when twenty years of age. Ebenezer Pennock purchased a small farm near Chittenango, which became a nucleus for the really vast domain of which he was possessed at his decease in 1896, at seventy five years of age. His operations in the acquisition and management of large pieces of adjacent realty were almost marvelous. An indefatigable worker, he was yet a kind and charitable citizen and left a cherished name in the community. One of the promoters and organizers of the Chittenango Cotton Company, once a large and flourishing concern, he was for many years its president. It is of interest to note that his estates hereabout comprised no less than 4.600 acres. Prior to the use of coal as fuel by the New York Central Railread he furnished it with large quantities of suitable wood; in one single season 36,000 cords. Miss Annie Coats, now deceased, became his wife, at Fayetteville, in 1851. Mr. Pennock found little time for political activity. An unswerving Democrat, he served several terms as supervisor of his town.
