Biography of Charles M. Haywood
Owego, Tioga County, NY Biographies





CEARLES MARTIN HAYWOOD, who died in Owego village June 13, 1892, was, during the period of his business life, one of the foremost men of the county seat. He was a leading workman and organizer among the local masonic and odd fellow bodies and was deeply interested in all that pertained to the welfare of Owego and its people. He was a native of the Green Mountain state, born at Ludlow, August 16, 1833, and was the son of a farmer. At the age of sixteen he began learning the trade of marble cutting and finishing, and made his first. start in business at Littleton, N. H., in 1856. Four years later he came to Owego and opened a shop and from that time on he was one of the most active men in either town or village. He was an earnest republican, and the town and village civil list will disclose the fact that his prominence in local politics often brought him before the people as a candidate for some important position, to which he was nearly always elected. His connection with the masonic and odd fellows bodies gave him a peculiar prominence in Owego, and in whatever position he was chosen to fill he always acquitted himself with credit to those whom he represented. The late marble firm of Haywood & Baldwin was formed in 1888, and, after the death of the senior member, Harry C. Haywood succeeded to the business, both in Owego and Waverly. Mr. Haywood, their father, was married in 1854. with Hannah Kneeland, of Proctorville; Vt., of this marriage four children were born, viz: Myron, who died in infancy; Arthur, who died at twenty; Harry Clinton, present . proprietor of the business and successor to his father, and Alma Lucelia Haywood, of Owego, Harry Clinton Haywood was born in Owego, September 13, 1862.
