Biographical Sketch of Lee Vosburgh

(III) Lee, son of Arnold and Olive (Coe) Vosburgh, was born in Hillsdale, Columbia county, New York, July 26, 1863. He attended the public schools in the town of Phelps, New York, removing there with his parents in 1871 ; two years later they removed to Clyde, New York, and after another two years returned to Phelps and located on their former farm. In 1892 Mr. Vosburgh took charge of this farm and it has since that time been under his sole management. The results which he has achieved in agriculture have been of an eminently satisfactory character, and he is most progressive in all he undertakes. Buildings have been remodeled and improved, new implements acquired, and scientific farming given a fair and impartial trial. The product of the farm under these favorable conditions leaves nothing to be desired. Mr. Vosburgh has inherited the intellectual traits of his father and other ancestors, and is one of the leading spirits in all educational matters, making many improvements in this direction. He was elected as trustee of the schools in 1900, and re-elected in 1910, a very palpable proof of the excellence of his service in this office. He is a member of the Presbyterian church, and has been a liberal contributor to its treasury on many occasions. He is a member of Sincerity Lodge, No. 200, Free and Accepted Masons, and has served as junior warden of that body.

Mr. Vosburgh married, January 9, 1901, Grace, daughter of Alfred Van Der Poel, of Red Creek, New York. Children: Gladys, born July 11, 1903 ; Carrie, born May 16, 1909.
