Steuben County, NY Biographies





Huntley, Seth M., was born in the town of Avon. Livingston County, N. Y., September 30, 1840. Albert G. Huntley, the father of our subject, was a native of Michigan and became a resident of Steuben county about 1850, locating at Corning. He was in early life a farmer, afterward a lumberman and mill owner, and the later twenty five years of his life he conducted hotels in Corning and Pennsylvania. He died in 1863. Of his seven children, Seth was the third. He had the advantage of a common school education, and was only in his eleventh year when he left the paternal roof and began his life work on a farm. He was employed with his uncle in the town of Burns, Allegany county until twenty two years of age. In 1862 he leased a farm in the town of Burns and in 1868 in partnership with his father inlaw, he bought the Tom Bennett farm of seventy five acres, three miles north of the city of Hornellsville, where he has ever since been located. Mr. Huntley has made the farm a garden, and is considered one of the most prosperous farmers of this section. He was married, October 13, 1862, to Miss Cornelia L. Downs, daughter of Alanson W. Downs, a prominent farmer of Hornellsville. They have been the parents of two children: Alanson Hart Huntley, who is with his father on the farm, and Arthur Albert, student of Baltimore Medical College of the class of 1896. Mrs. Huntley died October 29, 1886; a true Christian and a devoted wife and loving mother, her family will never cease to mourn her loss.
