Biography of George A. Rising
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Rising, George A., is one of the oldest residents of Hoosick who was born in the town, a type of personal landmarks who are becoming somewhat rare. He was born near Eagle Bridge in 1827 and never lived elsewhere. His father was Ebenezer Rising of Connecticut birth, but most of whose life was passed in Hoosick. Mr. Rising was brought up on a farm, but when a young man learned the builder's trade and has occupied his mature years in that business, and owing to the inheritance of a good constitution and correct habits does not yet consider himself retired from active life. He married in 1850 Susan R. Higley of this place, and their children are Daniel W. Rising, a box 'manufacturer of North Adams; Sarah A., wife of George Boynton, a manufacturing pharmacist of Waukegan, Ill.; Estella, wife of Hiram Allen of Bennington, Vt.; Mary M., wife of James Glenn, a grocer of Hoosick Falls; G. Frank Rising, of Easton, Rising & Worden; Emma, wife of Porter Huey, a lawyer of Kane, Pa.
