JEREMIAH MASTEN.

JEREMIAH MASTEN, Milton, was born in the town of Providence, January 25, 1834, a son of Ezekiel and Sarah (Wescott) Masten. His father came to this county from Dutchess county when a young man of nineteen years, and was a lumberman and farmer, which business he followed until his death. He was a man who took a great interest in his home affairs, always public spirited, and contributed much towards the improvement of the town and county. Jeremiah Masten was educated in the common schools of the towns of Providence and Greenfield, and when twenty-two years of age started in life for himself as a farmer in the town of Providence. Soon afterwards he moved to the town of Milton and located near West Milton, where he now lives and follows lumbering and farming. Mr. Masten married Abigail, daughter of William G. and and Fannie (Manning) Hill, and their children are Harriet J,, William G., Cora E. and Marvin S.

Mr. Masten is interested in educational, town and county affairs, and for the past twenty years has been connected with the M. E. church of Rock City Falls and has held most of the offices in the church. At the organization of the Citizens' Co-operative Fire Insurance Company of Saratoga county, Mr. Masten was made one of its directors, unsolicited, as he was not present at the organization.
