Berry, F. H., was born May 4, 1829, in Bennington county, Vt., son of Lewis and Sarah Berry. He was educated in the Union Academy, Bennington, and came to Oswego county in 1851. He ran a tannery for a New York firm about thirty years, was school commissioner in Amboy, was justice of the peace eleven years and supervisor one year. During Mr. Berry's residence in Amboy he also managed a tannery in Pennsylvania for the same firm whose tannery in Amboy he was running. About ten years ago Mr. Berry removed to Parish, settling on the farm where he has since resided. He has been supervisor six terms. Mr. Berry has had charge of some of the largest business interests in Oswego county, and his long career as a public officer has been exceeded by that of few in the county. He married first in 1852 Ann Nelson, by whom he had three children, one now living. He married second in 1875 Kate Wilcox.
