Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Stroud, Mrs. Harriet L. - Mrs. Stroud was born in Bennington, Vt., the daughter of Anthony Breese, who was born in Hoosick and most of his life was spent there on a farm. Her paternal grandfather came from Holland and settled at Greenbush, N. Y. Several descendants of his family are residents of the southern part of Hoosick. Charles E. Stroud, who died here in 1888, had been for a number of years one of the foremost men of the place. The law firm was Stroud & Whitcomb until 1884 when George E. Green became Mr. Stroud's partner. Mr. Stroud was noted for legal ability and integrity and public spirit as well. He was one of the organizers of the First National Bank here and, while never seeking public office, was always interested in the public well being. He was of Stamford birth, and a graduate of Williams College.
