Biography of Frank H. White
Rensselaer County, New York Biographies





White, Frank H., one of Hoosick Falls's most esteemed and leading businessmen, was born at Bennington, Vt., in 1854 of English ancestry and son of Salem White, now sixty nine years of age. His maternal great grandfather, Lemuel Fuller, came with the "Mayflower." He was educated at his native place, and at sixteen left the farm and began work in a meat market. This was the beginning of the vocation he has followed so successfully, and has ever since been engaged in the work. He now has a most extensive market, corner of John and Church streets, dealing in the choicest beef, mutton, pork and poultry, with game and vegetables in their season. He also opened an extensive carriage repository in 1890, being agent for the Watertown Spring Wagon Co. He is a Republican but not an aspirant for political advancement. Both himself and wife are worthy and efficient members of St. Mark's Episcopal church. She was Ida E., daughter of Nathaniel Gardner of this place. They were married in 1874 and had one son, Guy Herbert, who died in 1884 aged seven years, and in whose memory St. Mark's church has a memorial candlestick placed by his bereaved mother.
