Biography of Frank B. Alley
Steuben County, NY Biographies





Alley, Frank Bennett, was born in the village of Hornellsville, April 3, 1860, only son of the late Samuel M. Alley. He was educated in the city schools and early showed his inheritance of business enterprise and indomitable pluck by engaging in a retail store at the corner of Main and Canisteo streets. Five years later he established a wholesale department, where for eleven years his trade has had a steady and permanent growth. In 1893 his rapidly increasing trade demanding larger quarters, he removed the wholesale department to the old post office building on Canisteo street, where we now find him; but he still continues to operate as a retail department, the old stand which is now popularly known as "Alley's Corner." In 1894 he fitted up with the most artistic taste "Alley's Cafe." He devotes his whole time and attention to his business, with no political or social aspirations except for his friends, for whom he is a hard worker. He is a member of the I. O. O. F. June 4, 1882, Mr. Alley married Isabel, daughter of H. C. Johnson, of Hornellsville. They have one child, Laura. The first born, Helen, died November 1, 1892, aged ten years.
