Biographical Sketch of Winfield S. Stryker

Winfield S., son of John and Maria (Garritson) Stryker, was born in Cayuga county, New York, August 28, 1847. He was educated in the public schools, and at an early age, under the able supervision and direction of his father, became initiated into the details of farm management and cultivation. Later he removed to Oaks Corners, where he was engaged in farming for a period of seven years, and subsequently removed to Phelps, where he purchased the farm on which he is living at the present time. He is progressive in his methods, ready to adept any new idea which seems practical, and the farm is very successfully managed. The buildings are amply large for the purposes for which. they were designed, and they are kept in the finest condition. A considerable portion of the acreage is devoted to the growing of fruit of various kinds, and this is a profitable enterprise. He is a Republican in politics and has served as school director. He is a member of Wide Awake Grange, No. 747, Patrons of Husbandry, of Phelps, New York. The family attend the Presbyterian church.

Mr. Stryker married Harriet J., daughter of Daniel and Eliza (Benson) Case, and they had children: Winfield C.; Arthur J.; Flora E., married, November 18, 1908, James H. Weston, of Oaks Corners, New York. and they have one child, John S., born January 20, 1910; Clara II., died August 2, 1903; Olive I.; John H.; Daniel; Harold E. and Elmer E., twins.
