Biography of John Chadwick
Orleans County, NY Biographies





Chadwick, John, was a native of England, born in Yorkshire, where his early life was spent and where he was a stone cutter by trade. To this occupation John also brought up his sons. The family came to this country in 1859, and the father thereafter lived and worked in Buffalo and Medina, but eventually moved to Wisconsin. Thomas Chadwick, son of John, was born in Yorkshire May 1, 1845, and came to this country with his father. In 1871 he went to Medina where he was employed for ten years as foreman in the McCormick quarries, after which he was for three years in business for himself in Lockport. In 1885 Mr. Chadwick came to Albion and with his brother, Allen, bought twenty five acres of quarry land in the eastern part of the town. This tract has since been increased to forty seven acres, and the stone producing firm of Chadwick Brothers, is regarded as one of the substantial and successful business concerns of the stone belt. In England, in 1870, Thomas Chadwick married Anna Pyrah, by whom he has three children: James, Elizabeth and Joseph, the daughter being now deceased. Allen Chadwick was born in Yorkshire, England, June 13, 1855, and his business life has been much like that of his brother, whose partner he now is. He married Emma Rinker, of Ridgeway, and has five children: Ira, Lena, Libbie, Marion and Henry. In politics he is a Prohibitionist. Thomas Chadwick is a Republican in politics.
