CANANDAIGUA HAS LOST A GOOD MAN
Death of Major Frank O. Chamberlain Yesterday, After Long Weeks' Illness
Beautiful Farm on Canandaigua Lake Had Been Major Chamberlain's Residence Since Retirement From Active Business.
Major Frank O. CHAMBERLAIN, of Canandaigua, died at his home on the west lake shore yesterday morning after a lingering illness of a complication of diseases. Deceased was born in Cohocton, April 2, 1830. In 1845 he removed to Rushville and engaged in the farming and milling business. He was postmaster of Rushville from 1852 till 1866, and had held other positions of trust there. In 1861 he responded to his country's call for men. Owing to ill health he was compelled to return home after a year of service, during which time his valor won him promotion to the position of major. In the year 1865 he went to Canandaigua to assume charge of the Webster house, which he conducted successfully for ten years. He then became possessed of his beautiful farm of 153 acres on the west shore of Canandaigua lake, about two miles from Canandaigua village, where his home had since been made.
In 1860 Major CHAMBERLAIN was elected supervisor for the town. He was chairman of the Republican county committee and was active in politics. In 1876 he was selected as postmaster of Canandaigua and filled that position for two terms. In 1890 he was chosen by the people in a hotly contested election for the assembly, and was re-elected in 1894. During these terms he served on the railroads and public instruction committees in a manner that won for him the respect of his colleagues and the approbation of his constituents. Major CHAMBERLAIN was one of the foremost of advanced agriculturists of Western new York, and was for years identified with county fair interests in the section. He was for three years president and for several years secretary of the Ontario County Agricultural Society. He had been conspicuous in the affairs of the State Agricultural Society and was prominent in securing its location at Syracuse. For four years he was treasurer of that organization.
Mr. CHAMBERLAIN was the first president of the Canandaigua street railway and was always active in local affairs of public interest. Ill health the past few years had compelled retirement from active life of one of the most active and representative men of Western New York. Survivors are his wife, Elizabeth HULSE CHAMBERLAIN, and three sons, Oliver H., of Washington; James H., of The Canandaigua, in-that-place, and Frank D. CHAMBERLAIN, an employee of the Northern Central offices in Canandaigua.
