-------------------------------------------



Caryl, H. Julius, is a native of Otsego county, and was educated at Hartwick Seminary. He has long been a prominent member of the New York Produce Exchange and one of the board of directors of the New York National Exchange Bank, also a dealer in real estate. He married Eliza Jumel Perv, June 21, 1876. Both Mr. and Mrs. Caryl are descendants of Revolutionary ancestors, and Mrs. Caryl's family has been associated with Saratoga Springs since 1804 and Jumel Cottage was named in honor of Madame Jumel. Mrs. Caryl's great-grandfather, Jonathan Clark, was a Revolutionary soldier and a friend of John Hancock. Her father was Nelson Chase, a distinguished lawyer of New York city, and her mother a niece of Madam Jumel, whose husband, Stephen Jumel, was a merchant prince of New York in the early days of this century; she purchased a tract in Saratoga Springs in. 1832, which remained intact until 1881, when it was sold under a partition sale. The present Caryl residence is a part of that estate. Mrs. Caryl possesses a very interesting and valuable collection of relics of the great Bonaparte, purchased by Stephen Jumel from a niece of Josephine. Stephen Jumel owned a dozen ships and sailed to France to bring Napoleon Bonaparte to America in 1815. Bonaparte, however, decided to throw himself upon the clemency of the English and then found himself lost. Among the relics of Napoleon is his army chest, which he carried through all his wars, and which ha3 a secret lock, the key of which never left his possession until the day before he left for St. Helena. Mr. Caryl's parents were Hon. Leonard and Mary (Crippen) Caryl. His father was a member of assembly in 1842, and his great-grandfather was a soldier in the Revolutionary war.
