    Notes:

    GEORGE T. FEARON, a very extensive farmer and horticulturist, and one of the truly representative citizens of Madison County, is eminently worthy a place in this "Biographical Review." Agriculture is much older than the Christian era, and its literature is richer than perhaps that of any other occupation of mankind. The art itself is, as a matter of course, older than its literature, which may be said to have begun with Cato the Great, who was born at Tusculum in 234 B.C., who inherited from his plebeian father a small farm in the country of the Sabines, and who was the first and most celebrated writer on this subject. The art of agriculture consists in rearing those animals and plants best suited to supply the wants of man; and, in all probability, no part of the United States is better suited to its perfect development than Central New York.
    Of those sufficiently fortunate to inhabit this favored region is Mr. George T. Fearon, who is one of its leading farmers and horticulturists, having successfully followed two branches of agriculture during most of his life. Mr. Fearon was born April 21, 1835, in the town of Eaton, on the farm which he now owns and occupies. He is a son of Robert and Ann (Christian) Fearon, both of whom were born in Ireland, the former having been the son of George Fearon, whose biographical sketch appears elsewhere in this volume. Robert Fearon was a prosperous stock-raiser and hop-grower, and owned the farm on which the subject of this sketch now lives. Being an honest, hard-working man, he was highly respected wherever known. Religiously, he was a Methodist; and, politically, he was a Republican. His death took place September 13, 1875, when he was sixty-nine years of age. Mr. Fearon was twice married, by his first wife rearing seven children, and by his second one, who is yet living. All but one of the family grew to mature years. The three now living are: George T., the subject of this sketch; Robert M., a lumber dealer, living in Ohio; and Henry, of Oneida, N.Y.
    George T. Fearon remained at home until he reached his twenty-fifth year, having in the mean time acquired a good education in the district schools and by attendance five terms at Cazenovia Seminary. In June, 1860, he married Miss Adell F. Thurston, who was born in the town of Stockbridge, and is a daughter of Hiram and Emily (Hamilton) Thurston, the former of whom was a successful farmer of the town of Stockbridge, and died there at the age of eighty-one, his wife having passed away fourteen months before, aged eighty years. They were the parents of eleven children, seven of whom are still living, Mrs. Adell F. Fearon being one of the three younger. The farm of Mr. George T. Fearon contains one hundred and sixty-five acres, seventy acres of which he has devoted to large and small fruit, such as apples, pears, blackberries, raspberries, and grapes. Besides this farm, Mr. Fearon also owns one in Lake County, Florida, upon which he raises oranges, lemons, grapes, and peaches. On his Madison County farm he raises stock and also keeps about one hundred sheep. Mr. and Mrs. Fearon have two sons--David C., born January 18, 1864, and Fred M., born September 7, 1867--both of whom are engaged in fruit-growing with their father. On April 12, 1893, in the town of Eaton were married Mr. Fred M. Fearon and Miss Lepha Lewis.
    The bride, a very capable young lady of good attainments, was born and brought up at the home of her parents in Pratt's Hollow. Mrs. George T. Fearon is a faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal church. Mr. Fearon is a voter with the Prohibition party and an advocate of its principles.

    George married Flora Adele Thurston. Flora (daughter of Hiram Thurston and Amy Almira Hamilton) was born in 1844 in Madison county, NY; died on 15 Dec 1922 in Pratts Hollow, Madison, New York, United States. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
