John Conklin Jr.   

Conklin, jr., John, Tidioute P.O., Deerfield, was born in Poultney, Steuben county, N.Y., May 7, 1819. His father was John Conklin, a native of Vermont, who settled in Deerfield in 1826 and engaged in the lumber business; he died at Conklin Run in 1839, leaving a family of four sons and three daughters— Hiram, Henry, John, James, Eliza, Roxana, and Hannah. John, jr., embarked at the early age of seventeen in the manufacture and shipping of lumber, and became an extensive land owner and dealer. Owing to misplaced confidence in a partner, who had the disposing of his interests, he was a great financial sufferer, but still holds possession of some 3,000 acres now in controversy. He married Emma Price in 1844; she died in 1876. They had a family of five sons— James, Henry, John, jr., Joseph, and Eugene. Joseph married Nary Chambers; James married Ida Morrison; Henry married Amanda Covell; and John married Mary Amy. Mr. Conklin united with the Methodist Episcopal Church in 1844, and devoted much time as layman in church work, and soon became active in establishing places of worship; he preached for over twenty years, and is now an ardent worker in the cause of his Master. He is still engaged in the land and lumber business.
