Getty, James H., was born in Sullivan, Madison county, June 4, 1819, a son of Thomas and Fannie (Herron) Getty.
His father was a farmer, but at the age of about fourteen James was apprenticed to learn the tailor's trade at
Fayetteville, N. Y., and after long years thus spent he became partner to Henry Ecker, in a tailoring business
at the same place. Here he continued until 1861, when he came to Albion. While still a resident of Fayetteville,
July 24, 1855, Mr. Getty married Anna Amelia, daughter of David Kennedy, of Sullivan. Mrs. Getty was born June
8, 1828, and died in Albion June 2, 1874. She was a faithful and devoted Christian worker, whose example and teaching
was always for right. No children were born of this marriage above noted, although just previous to the death of
Mrs. Getty, Louise Humiston was taken into Deacon Getty's family as a daughter. She is now Mrs. Warren Stone Gordis,
her husband being a professor in the J. B. Stetson University at Deland, Fla. Mr. Getty, familiarly known as "Deacon"
Getty, from his long and useful connection with the Baptist Church, has been deacon since 1863. He is a Republican,
but has never taken an active part in political affairs.
