Biography of David Morey
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Morey, David, was born in New Ashford. Berkshire county, Mass., in February, 1850. His education was received at the Taconic Institute at Lanesboro, Mass., and in 1868 he removed to Troy, which has since been his home. Twenty years ago he embarked in the grocery business in the southern part of the city, and he still continues in that line. He early espoused the cause of Democracy, and by reason of his prominence in that party, was chosen school commissioner, which position he held for three years. In 1891 the Democratic convention named him its candidate for county treasurer, his oppenent being Shepard Tappen. Mr. Morey was elected by a majority of 2,694 votes, and the number of votes received by him exceeded those received by any other candidate on his ticket. His administration of that important office was entirely successful. He was nominated for the same office in 1894, but was defeated. In June, 1896, he was appointed by Mayor Molloy to the important office of city chamberlain, which position he now holds.
