Residence, Warehouse and Elevator of Wm. Hamilton, Caledonia, Livingston County, NY

Description

The son of a Scottish immigrant, Hamilton was born 1832 in Le Roy and grew up on a farm. After a brief time spent as a teacher in the upper midwest, Hamilton returned to Caledonia, married Jane Vallance, and had five children. Hamilton was a leading figure in the community, praised by James Smith for his "invincible energy and active business ability." He died in 1912.

These engravings show a portion of his property located next to the New York Central RR, the elevator inset and enlarged as a separate file.
