Biography of John H. Cuyler
Wayne County, NY Biographies





Cuyler, John H., was born in Orleans county, in 182. His father, Abram, a prominent man of affairs in his day, settled here in 1833. Our subject has been identified with various industries in this locality in early years; was the first producer of barrel staves in Wolcott, but since 1854 has devoted himself to farming and has for a quarter of a century occupied a house on a farm of 150 acres. March 16, 1854, he married Cordelia, daughter of Nelson De Vinney, a merchant of Newark. They have three children, Ella, Nelson and Ida. Ella has been a teacher since the age of seventeen, and it is due to her efforts as orignator and promoter of the idea that the excellent library at District No. 3 must be ascribed. The library is conducted upon a sound business basis, and its value as an educational factor is thereby enhanced and prolonged. Founded in 1888, it consists at present of nearly one hundaed volumes of educational and historical works.
