Pearson, John, Madrid, was born in County Wicklow, Ireland, March 17, 1820, and came to this country in 1847. He was a resident of Waddington one winter and then located in the town of Madrid, where he was employed with Alfred Teal. He was for a number of years employed with different farmers and in 1851 bought a farm of fifty acres, which by his perseverance and industry has now increased to 170 acres. Mr. Pearson has made many valuable improvements since he first bought the property, and in 1865 he built a very good residence and has, besides, erected outbuildings and barns. He conducts it as a dairy farm, with eighteen cows, thirteen sheep and five horses. Mr. Pearson has always taken an active interest in the Republican party and its principles, but has never been a candidate for public office. He married in December, 1852, Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Hesseigrave, a farmer of this town, and they have had nine children, eight now living: Robert Edward, a farmer of Madrid; Richard Thomas, who lives on the old homestead; Mary M.
