Biography of Mrs. Timothy Stapleton
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Stapleton, Mrs. Timothy. - In the death of Timothy Stapleton, in 1894, Hoosick Falls lost one of its most useful men. He had served the public well officially as assessor, trustee and otherwise. He came to Hoosick Falls with his father, John Stapleton, in 1850, having previously spent two years in Troy, learning the machinist trade; he became an employee of the Walter Wood Co.; all of his business life was spent there with the exception of two years during the war, which was spent in the quartermaster's department at Washington. He was born in County Tipperary, Ireland, in 1837, and came to America when fourteen years old. In 1864 he married Eleanor Smith, daughter of Patrick Smith of this place, by whom he had eight children. Two of that number are not living. Mr. Stapleton was a home lover, and idolized by his family. He espoused the temperance cause and was an ardent advocate of the same.
