Orleans County, NY Biographies





Tripp, Anthony, was a native of Providence, R. I., and came at a very early day to Columbia county, where he grew up and married; later on his family moved to Delaware county, and there a number of his children were born. In 1811 Anthony Tripp made a purchase from the Holland Land Co. of a farm tract in Barre. In 1817 Samuel Tripp, son of Anthony, cleared up the land, and in 1824 it was first occupied permanently by the family. Almeron, son of Anthony, was born in Delaware county, June 24, 1815. On February 28, 1840, he married Sylvia Burns, by whom he had four children, viz.: James B., born November 9, 1840; Charles A., born July 26, 1845; John Quincy, born January 2, 1849, and Edwin Winslow, born June 25, 1854. Of these children Charles enlisted in Company D, of the 4th N. Y. Heavy Artillery, and served to end of the war. He married Julia Hollister, of Barre, and afterward moved to Missouri, thence to Dakota, where he now lives. The wife of Almeron Tripp died, November 24, 1887. John Q. Tripp, whose farm is located on the principal highway leading south from the village of Albion to the town of Barre, was born in the latter town, January 2, 1849. He was educated at the district schools and the old academy, and began for himself at the age of twenty one. For ten or twelve years he was a school teacher in this county. In 1887 he went to Michigan, and carried on a store at Eden, Ingham county, where he did a successful business for three years, and at the end of that time returned to Albion at his father's request. On April 16, 1890, Mr. Tripp married Dora, daughter of William J. and Margaret Hanington. They have two children: William Hanington, and James Almeron. Edwin W. Tripp was born June 24, 1854, and, like his brother just mentioned, spent several years in teaching school. On October 18, 1878, he married Anna F. Latta. They have two children: Evelyn S., and Miriam E.
