Owego, Tioga County, NY Biographies





A. CHASE THOMPSON, founder and active manager of the Standard Butter Co., of Owego, one of the largest industries of its kind in the world, was a native of Tompkins county, born in the year 1844. He came to Owego in 1865, from which time to 1888 he was in the dry-goods business, but he had also been in the produce business for a number of years. In the spring of 1888, in company with George Truman, Jr., Mr. Thompson began the manufacture of a superior grade of butter, and, as the product met with ready sale in New York high-class hotels and restaurants, the, business was increased to very large proportions, the present annual output being 3,000,000 pounds. However, the history of this enterprise is so fully written in the village chapter that not more than a passing allusion to it is necessary in this place. In 1868 A. Chase Thompson was married with Sarah F., the daughter of George Truman, of Owego, they have two children.
