|Text||SAMUEL ESTES, farmer, P. O. Lake Pleasant, was born July 4, 1829, in Broome County, N.Y., son of Dr. Elijah Estes, who came with his family to this county about 1835. Our subject was reared in this township, where he attended the common schools. He was united in marriage, October 6, 185[?9?], with Sarah White of this township, born July 26, 1828, daughter of Ebenezer and Anna White natives of Vermont, who settled in this county at an early date. Mr. White died August 28, 1855, his widow in December, 1867. They left a family of six children-Mrs. Estes, Mrs. Lavilla Brown, Mrs. Salina Hedly, Mrs. Annis Richards, Mrs. Joanna Brown and Justus. Mr. and Mrs. Estes have occupied their present farm since their marriage, relying only on their own resources. They have now a fine, well-improved farm of 140 acres, with good buildings. The children born to them are Mrs. Jane Bisbee, Mrs. Lavina Hawly, Elijah J., Mrs. Ida Chaffee, Samantha, Callie, Irene, Sophia and Frank. Elijah Estes married Martha Orton, daughter of William P. Orton, who died February 15, 1882. They are earnest friends of the cause of education, and have given their children literary and musical advantages. Mr. Estes is a Democrat, politically; he is a man strong in physical and mental qualities with firm principles, and has the respect of the community.|
