Biographical Sketch of John N. Marsh

John N., son of Frederick Marsh, was born in Hopewell, New York, February 28, 1880. He received his early education in the common schools. For several years he leased farms and in 1909 he bought “Spring Brook Farm” which he has since conducted. It is pleasantly located in the town of Hopewell, a mile east of Chapin village and two miles north of the Rochester & Eastern electric railway station known as “Freshhour.” Mr. Marsh is a progressive, up-to-date farmer, making a specialty of his dairy and owning a fine herd of graded Durham cows and using the most advanced methods of making high-grade butter. He is thorough, painstaking and industrious and his success is in evidence in his surroundings. His buildings are modern in construction and pleasing in design. Generous, kindly and hospitable, Mr. Marsh commands the confidence and esteem of his townsmen to an unusual degree. In politics he is a Republican. In religion a Methodist.
