Frank E. Conley is now vice president of the Frank E. Conley Stone Company, which was organized in 1898 and
has since become a profitable, prosperous and growing business. The yards of the company are on Park avenue and
Jay street. On the 26th of March, 1862, Mr. Conley was born in Verona, Oneida county, his parents being Hugh and
Harriett (Chargo) Conley. The father was also a native of Verona and was the son of Edward Conley, who came to
the United States from Ireland when a small boy. Hugh Conley worked for a time as foreman on the New York Central
Railroad, but afterward turned his attention to general agricultural pursuits, settling on a farm which he carefully
and systematically cultivated.
Frank E. Conley was educated in the public schools of Oneida county and during the period of his youth became familiar
with all of the duties and labors that fall to the lot of the farm boy. After putting aside his text books he engaged
in farming for a while and then secured a position in a hardware store in Oneida, where he remained for four years.
He has been a resident of Utica for about twenty years and for a long period wes engaged in the coal and stone
business. In 1898 he organized the Frank E. Conley Stone Company, of which he is vice president. This company now
owns five quarries and ships stone to all parts of the state, furnishing much of that which is used upon the large
canal and the good roads of numerous counties of this state. His business has grown to extensive proportions and
a large number of workmen are employed. Mr. Conley is always considerate of those who serve him and endeavors to
make them feel that their interests are his and that faithfulness on their part is appreciated.
In October, 1893, Mr. Conley was married to Miss Delia Stisser, of Oneida, a daughter of John Stisser, and they
have one daughter, Mildred Stisser Conley. They reside at No. 758 Genesee street and are attractively located.
Mr. Conley does not belong to any fraternal orders, nor has he held or sought political positions, preferring to
concentrate his energies upon his business affairs which, under his capable management, are growing and extending
