=======================================
Source: HISTORY OF WYOMING CO., NY
BY: F. W. BEERS, 1880
=======================================

CHARLES B. HUNTINGTON was born Dec. 23rd, 1820, in Greensboro, VT. He came to Perry, Wyoming Co., NY with Mr. and Mrs. Sanborn, making the journey in a wagon, to live with his sister, Mrs. C. Hatch, and learn the harness-maker's trade. Whatever education he possessed he has obtained by his own exertions, having attended school only three or four months, in the old yellow school house in Perry, NY. The harness-maker who employed him sold out his business about 1837, and young Huntington was without a job, but soon found work at his trade, at which he continued about a years, after which he was associated in business for two years with A. T. Alpin. Since 1842 he has been a farmer. He has been twice married. His first wife was LUCY JANE OLIN, who died May 6th, 1842. Nov. 19th, 1846, he married MARY BUELL, and soon afterward began housekeeping in an old log house near his present comfortable home, which he has won by industry and economy. Mr. Huntington states that he has always avoided the use of whiskey and tobacco, and he has never sought nor accepted office, being content with his home life and the company of his wife, whom he emphatically pronounces his "better half". He has reared a family of six children. Mr. Huntington's father, a farmer at Greensboro, VT, was a man honored for his intelligence and social worth, his temperate and industrious habits, and his overflowing benevolence. He died Oct. 1st, 1840.
