Biography of Horace E. Buel
Richmond County, NY Biographies





HORACE E. BUEL, chairman of the Republican General Committee, is the eldest son of Orlando W. Buel. He was born on Staten Island, October 185z. His father settled on the Island in 1836 and established the marble cutting business at Port Richmond, where the business is still carried on by Mr. Buel and his father. In 1871, he joined Fire Engine Company No. 3, of the Port Richmond Fire Department, in which he has held every office up to that of chief. He is also a member of the board of health of the village of Port Richmond.

Mr. Buel has always been connected with, and is a prominent working member of the Republican party, but has never been an aspirant for political favors or lucrative offices. He has been a member of the General Committee about ten years, and at the organization of the last General Committee, he was elected chairman without opposition.

Mr. Buel is a man of quiet and unassuming manners, but with a clear head and a good stock of hard common sense, and is just the man to keep a political organization harmonious and united and to keep it in good fighting order.
