Redway was born 3/5/1835 in Adams, Jefferson county, and received the upbringing and education common to the youth of his class in that early period of American life. he was but twenty years of age when he engaged in the mercantile business in Scranton, PA and one year later he married Miss Mary Outterson, In Pulaski, Oswego county, NY. She was born in Dublin Ireland, and came to america as a child of three years. her father was Andrew Outterson, a Scot of Edinburgh birth and training, born there in 1808, who came to Amercia in 1833, bringing his young family with him. He was a paper maker by trade having learned the business in Scotland and was a large manufacturer, owning mills in a number of states at one time in his life. He was a man of considerable prominence in the business, and was known as the inventor of the system of using silk threads in United States currency.
