Biography of George H. Price
Madison County, NY Biographies





Price, George H., p. o. Sheds. - New York State is probably the leading State in the Union in hop culture, and Madison, moreover, one of its most productive counties. Prominent among the most successful hop growers of this county noneis more conspicuous than George H. Price. He is a son of William E. and Jane (Colier) Price, and was born in the town of Otselic, Chenango county, N. Y., January 17, 1856. The rudimentary education of the district school was all that he was able to obtain, but he made the best use of his limited opportunities and at least laid a substantial foundation for the fund of information which he has since acquired by experience and observation. He assisted his father in the farm work until he was married, when he started out for himself. He married, March 6, 1878, Anna Masson, who died in October, 1881. There were born to them two children: Lena, born February 5, 1879, and Eva, born September 8, 1880. On July 3, 1882, Mr. Price married Rebecca, daughter of Thomas and Ann (Evans) Jones, who has borne him three children: Jennie A., born February 3, 1883; Nina M., born April 27, 1887; and Florence, born February 27, 1889. Mr. and Mrs. Price are members of the M. E. church. In politics he is a Republican, but is not an office seeker. An upright, honorable, conscientious man, he has the confidence and esteem of his fellow citizens, irrespective of creed or party.
