Biography of C. H. Bidwell
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Bidwell, C. H., was born in the town of Albion, Orleans county, April 10, 1848, and after spending the earlier years of his life in farming finally took up manufacturing and designing. He started in a modest way in Albion, but came to Medina in 1889 and formed a stock company. He has since however, bought out all the other share holders, and is now sole proprietor. He manufactures bean threshers extensively, and sells them all over the bean growing districts of this country, employing from fifteen to twenty workmen. In 1873 Mr. Bidwell married Lewella Albin, and they have four children, one son and three daughters. Mr. Bidwell's machines are sold under a warranty to be well made, finished, stronger and capable of doing more work well, on all kinds of beans, than any other thresher.
