Biography of W. F. Babcock
Rensselaer County, New York Biographies





Babcock, W. F. - Few families of this locality can boast of a more venerable genealogical tree than that of the house of Babcock, and in fact the paternal lineage of Mr. Babcock may be traced without a break to that pregnant date, 1620. W. Frank Babcock of Hoosick was born in this town in 1858. His father was the late Nelson P. Babcock, born in 1813 and died in 1893, a lifelong resident. Frank as a boy had a stong penchant for the art preservative and as an amateur printer he started a local paper called the "Centennial' in 1876, of which he was himself the editorial staff and publishing department. In 1880 he embarked in mercantile life and now operates a large and complete general store with his own name as the firm style. That he is successful and popular goes without saying.
