Sweet, Galusha C., was born in the town of Virgil, November 24, 1849, and was educated in the common schools, to which he has added through life by reading and observation. After leaving school he learned the marble cutter's trade, which he followed for four years and then learned the carriage maker's trade about ten years. In 1882 he came to the village of Dryden and went into the undertaker's business, soon taking the lead in his line and receiving calls from Ithaca, Cortland, Virgil, Harford, and Harford Mills as the director of the obsequies of the dead. Our subject has acquired a wide and well deserved reputation throughout the country. At the age of twenty one he was married to Miss Hattie Williams, daughter of the late W H.
