Wayne County, NY Biographies





Viele, Lucius H., representative of one of the oldest and best known of the leading families of Butler, was born in a log home, near the site of his present handsome home, December 26, 1838. His father is Charles I. Viele, a pioneer in the business interests of Butler and of Wolcott, and now retired from active life. His mother, Angeline, died January 8, 1889. Lucius Viele received a liberal education at Falley Seminary. Mr. Viele has large farming interests in Central Butler, which engross most of his attention. He married, January 8, 1868, Emily L., daughter of Webster Mackin, of Eaton, N.Y. They have two children: Charles W. and Harriet E., both of whom are graduates of the Leavenworth Institute at Wolcott, and Charles, of the Rochester Business University, and Harriet, also a graduate of Cazenovia Seminary. In the center of one of Mr. Viele's cultivated fields, but as sacred as if enclosed, is a grave of antique interest bearing this inscription: "Sarah Mills. Departed this life December 9, 1809, in the sixty fifth year of her age." She was the widow of Captain Mills, of Revolutionary fame.
