The business interests of the country have grown with immense and unprecedented strides during the last quarter
of a century and today the United States leads the world in wealth, as it undoubtedly does in natural resources.
The greatest of resources, however, is the progressive spirit of a free people and for this we thank the schools
and colleges that are yearly sending out thousands of capable young men and women, thoroughly trained to take up
the responsibilities of life and to carry them forward under direction of an intelligent will. Among the number
here indicated as having possessed especial advantages for large responsibility may be named Frederick Sheffield
Kellogg, president of Charles C. Kellogg & Sons Company, lumber dealers of Utica. His eyes opened to the light
of day in this city, January 5, 1866, his parents being Charles Cushman and Anna (Van Eps) Kellogg, the former
of whom was born in Utica, September 2, 1828, and the latter at Vernon, New York, May 14, 1831. She was a daughter
of Abraham Van Eps, a prominent citizen of Vernon.
The father of our subject was a son of Spencer Kellogg, who was one of the early settlers of Oneida county. Charles
Cushman Kellogg engaged in the lumber business under the firm name of Downer & Kellogg. The firm having been
dissolved, he continued in business under the title of Charles C. Kellogg, later taking in as partner Norman J.
Pegg, at which time the name of the firm was changed to Charles C. Kellogg & Company.
Mr. Kellogg of this review received his early education in the public schools and prepared for college at Stockbridge,
Massachusetts. He matriculated at the Sheffield Scientific School of Yale University and after pursuing a thorough
course in that celebrated institution was graduated in 1887. Returning to Utica, he joined his father in the lumber
business and later became a member of the firm, the title being changed to Charles C. Kellogg & Sons. In 1894
the firm was incorporated as Charles C. Kellogg & Sons Company, of which Frederick Sheffield Kellogg became
president and Spencer Kellogg treasurer. The company carries a large stock of lumber and affords to buyers the
very best facilities. Its success is due to integrity and fair dealing, nothing being left undone to give the fullest
satisfaction to patrons. Aside from his lumber business Mr. Kellogg has made other lucrative investments and is
a member of the board of directors of the Oneida National Bank and of the Walcott & Campbell Spinning Company,
of New York Mills.
On the 7th of October, 1896, Mr. Kellogg was happily married to Miss Elisabeth Welch Walcott, a daughter of William
Stuart Walcott, of New York Mills. Four children came to bless this union, Stuart Walcott, Lois Walcott, Emeline
Walcott and Frederick Sheffield, Jr. Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg are prominent socially and their home is a center for
many happy gatherings of friends and acquaintances. He is a lover of golf and is a member of the Sadaquada Golf
Club, also being connected with the Fort Schuyler Club of Utica and the University Club of New York city. Earnest,
energetic and progressive, he is a fair type of the twentieth-century business man-one who recognizes his responsibilities
and faithfully attempts to the extent of his ability to discharge
