Henry H. Kies    

HENRY H. KIES, county superintendent of schools, Coudersport, was born in Pitcher, Chenango Co., N. Y., in 1860, and with his parents, Enos J. and Sarah M., who were natives of New England, removed to Allegheny township, Potter Co., Penn., in 1866, where his father engaged in farming. Mr. Kies received his education at the common schools of the county, with the exception of a few terms at select schools. He began life by teaching in winters, finding employment on the farm during the summers, for a period of years, after which he attended Mansfield Normal School, from which he graduated in 1881. He then resumed his former vocation, and taught in graded and select schools until elected school superintendent of Potter county in the spring of 1887, a position he is eminently qualified to fill, both by study and natural inclination. He now has his residence in Coudersport. He is a Prohibitionist, and a member of the Sons of Temperance. He is a gentleman of sterling worth, is genial and affable, one whom it is a pleasure to meet. July 15, 1883, Mr. Kies married Miss Carrie E., daughter of J. C. and Abigail S. Bishop, natives of Vermont. Carrie E. Bishop was a teacher of wide experience, having graduated from the Lock Haven Normal School.
