Biography of Richard Duryee
Tompkins County, NY Biographies





Duryee, Richard, was born in Schnectady, N. Y., April 26, 1818, and came to the town of Dryden in 1850. He received his education in the common schools, but is a self educated and self made man. At the age of twenty one he married Rachel Cuykendall, of Skaneateles, who died in 1846, leaving one son, John M. In 1847 he married Eliza, daughter of W. H. Sutfin, and they are the parents of two daughters, Mrs. Mary J. Simons, and Mrs. Aurelia Hanshaw. In 1866 he bought the other interest in the Sutfin estate of 115 acres, on which he has built one of the handsomest residences in town. Our subject is one of the substantial men of his town, where he is recognized as a man of sterling worth and integrity, and as a practical and successful farmer.
