DAVID H. EMERY was born April 12, 1848, and was the son of John J. Emery, a New Jersey farmer. At 16 David began work as an apprentice at wagon making; and at the end of three years was a thorough mechanic in his line. For several years he worked as "Jour" both in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, but in 1873 came to Owego and found employment with the old firm of Moore & Ross, with whom he was connected 12 years, a part of the time as foreman in the smithing department. He then left and bought George Raymond's interest in the firm of Raymond Brothers, and thus established the present firm of Raymond & Emery, which, with some changes in management, has since been known in business circles in Owego. A busy man at all times, Mr. Emery has nevertheless found time to take part in public affairsin the village, always on the democratic side for he is one of the leaders of his party in Owego. He was once elected trustee and has frequently been a candidate for his party's good. In business life Mr. Emery has been successful. In Newton, N. J., he was married with Mary J. Wilcox, by whom he has one son, Lewis Emery.
