  • Note:

    Albert Wixom was born in the town of Carmel, Putnam County, NY, June 16, 1824. His father, Stephen Wixom, was also a native of Putnam county, born 180, and always followed farming. He brought his family with him to this county in 1831, and was for four years in Pulteney, then came to Urbana and bought a farm in the norther part where he lived until his death, which occurred in January 1879. He married Hester Badeau, who died in April 1870, by whom he had six children. Albert was the oldest son. He was educated in the common schools and remained with his father until he was seventeen years of age, he went into lumbering and boating from Hammondsport to Albany, for George D. Michell, where he remained for seven years. In 1850 he bought his first farm of seventy-two acres in the town, and two years later sold and went to Illinois, where he owned a farm for two years. Returning he bought in the town of Cameron, where he lived for two years and then returned to Urbana for a number of years. After one year in both Pulteney and Wayne, he was for two in the employ of the Urbana Wine company, as foreman of the farm. In 1868 he bought a farm of 150 acres on lot 3, where we now find him engaged in the production of grain, hay and wool. He has a flock of about 120 sheep. Mr. Wixom has always been a Republican since the time of the Rebellion, but never aspired to public office, although he has frequently been requested to accept it. In February 1849, he married Elizabeth, daughter of John Brown, of Urbana. She died 1 May 1882, leaving a son, Fred, who assists in the conducting of the homestead farm.
