Tompkins County, NY Biographies





Mandeville, W. E., was born in Dryden, July 16, 1853, a son of James H., who was born in Ulster county in 1804. The latter in early life learned the trade of cloth manufacturer, and followed this business for ten years in Cortland county, after which he took up farming, and finally settled on a place of 132 acres in the town of Dryden, now Caroline, where he died in 1888. He married Caroline, daughter of Charles Cantine, of this town, and their nine children were as follows: Charles, John, James, Jennie, Theodore, Margaret, Garretta, Harriet and William. Our subject remained at home until the age of twenty five, with the exception of two years, when he travelled on the road for a nursery firm. In 1877 he married Ophelia, daughter of I. B. Ostrander, of Dryden, and bought a farm in Tioga county of 127 acres, partly covered with timber, where he lived for six years, taking from this place 400,000 feet of timber, and then bought the farm he now occupies. Since coming to this county he has made a specialty of raising fruit of all kinds, and also the breeding of the Cheshire swine. He is an active Republican.
