He has been repeatedly urged to take the nomination for supervisor and county treasurer, but refused on the ground that he preferred his business to the field of politics. He has been an active member of the Baptist Church for many years, and has served as trustee, treasurer, and leader of the choir. He also took an active part in the building of the new church in 1890. Mr. Partridge is one of the original stockholders in the Hillside Cemetery, and belongs to the following organizations: A. O. U. W, and Masonic Lodge. In 1863 he married Helen J., daughter of Col. John Barry, and they have two children: Mildred B., wife of Charles B. Arnold, of Rochester; and John S., who is in business with his father.
