Tompkins County, NY Biographies





Mount, James Harrison, was born at Peruville, June 10, 1845, and was the son of William Dye Mount, the latter being remembered as a man of large influence in Peruville and vicinity during the period of the early history of that hamlet. Our subject was educated in the common and select schools and Groton Academy. In 1865 he began teaching winter school, and so continued until about ten years ago. During this time Mr. Mount was employed in the summers months as a practical butter and cheese maker, principally in the towns of Groton, Dryden and Caroline. In March, 1883, he established a general store in Peruville, and has built up a successful mercantile business. April 30, 1871, Mr. Mount married Martha Adeline Lamed, a descendant of one of the pioneer families of this county. They have one child. He was formerly a Republican, but his earnest interest in temperance work has naturally led him into the Prohibition party.
