Biography of Thomas Pert
Owego, Tioga County, NY Biographies





THOMAS PERT is remembered in connection with the milling industry in this county, in which he was engaged for many years. He was the son of Thomas Pert, senior, and brother to Rev. Luther Bascom Pert, and was a native of Spencer. His business life began as clerk for Charles Chatfield, at Painted Post, but later on he became his partner and was with him several years. Mr. Pert came to Owego in 1856 and was a miller, but afterward moved to Waverly and bought a mill. After this mill was burned he returned to Owego, resumed milling, but in 1878 became express messenger between Owego and Auburn. Still later he was transferred to the D., L. & W., running between Owego and Ithaca. He was thus employed at the time of his death, October 20, 1893. In 1853 Mr. Pert was married with Mary E. Chatfield, a native of Great Barrington, Mass. Their children were Fred Chatfield Pert, who died January 28, 1896, and Willis Ives Pert, of Owego. Willis I. Pert married with Fannie A. Babcock, of Windham, Penna. Fred C. Pert married with Ida Cornick. He was survived by his wife and two children now living, Mary E. and Marguerite B. Pert.
