Berner, John.-When John Berner first started his present business enterprise, in 1877, in Schuylerville, that part of the town where he took up his residence and erected his dwelling and shop was all a vacant field. Mr. Berner is a native of Canada, was born in 1842, a son of Antoine Berner, and came to the United States in 1862, where he first worked at his trade, that of a wagon maker and blacksmith, at Woodstock, Conn., thence to Vincennes, Vt, and from there to Schuylerville, where he established himself in business. His parents both remained and died in Canada; his four brothers, Jerome and Valise are still residents of the Dominion; Antoine resides in Fall River, Mass., and Isidore at Indian Orchard, Mass. He also had three sisters: Marie, wife of Joseph F. Letune of Fall River, Mass.; Melanise, wife of Ezra Du Pall of Indian Orchard, Mass.; and Philomene, wife of P. L. Livermore of Canada. In 1865 Mr. Berner married Emily Perkins, and they had two children, both now deceased; John, born in 1867, died in 1877, and Emma, born in 1877, died April 5, 1897, aged twenty-one years. Though not an active politician, Mr. Berner has always been a consistent Republican and faithful to the principles of that party. He enjoys a goodly share of the patronage in his line from both town and country. He manufactures to order all kinds of vehicles and has an extensive trade in jobbing and repairing. He is a highly respected citizen, enjoying the confidence and esteem of all who know him.
