Biography of Oscar B. Glezen
Owego, Tioga County, NY Biographies





OSCAR B. GLEZEN was born in Berkshire, May 13, 1858. He was the son of Oscar and Sarah (Cross) Glezen and the younger of their two children. His father was a native of Lisle, Broome county, and his mother of Old Stockbridge, Mass., but on both sides he comes from solid Yankee stock. The family came to Berkshire about 1848 and in 1869 moved to Union City, Pa. Oscar was educated in the common schools and under private teachers and at the same time was employed as book keeper in a pump factory at Union City. In 1876 he returned east and about the first of November began a course of law study in Judge Clark's office, and was admitted to the bar at Ithaca in May, 1880. He continued in Judge Clark's office as clerk of the surrogate's court about one year and began active professional life in the spring of 1882. Mr. Glezen is justly regarded as an expert in local surrogate practice, but prefers the general trial of cases in professional life. He is interested in local politics and as a speaker is well known throughout Tioga county. He is best known, however, as clerk of the board of supervisors, to which position he was elected in 1881 and has served in that capacity ever since, On February 22, 1893, he was appointed by the Trustees, corporation counsel of Owego village, and is now serving his fourth successive term as such, and under his direction in that office a number of important suits were brought to a successful termination. On April 28, 1885, Oscar B. Glezen married Mary, daughter of Luke Curtis of Maine, Broome county. They have two children.
