    JAMES PETRIE -- BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH
    James Petrie was born in Orkney, Scotland, May 15, 1819, the sixth of ten children. His father was Robert Petrie, a farmer and weaver. James married Jessie Guthrie, of Kirkwall, Scotland, in 1845. Seven children two sons and five daughters, all living -- were born to them, one in Scotland, the rest in America. He landed in New York June 2, 1847, and arrived in Redfield on the 6th of the same month. One month after, by the aid of a brother in New York, he purchased one hundred and twenty acres of land, clearing enough to keep five cows and a span of horses. This farm was afterwards traded, by his brother, for a house in Brooklyn, James receiving the money he had paid upon it. In 1853 he purchased the Lewis farm of two hundred and sixty-two and a half acres, where his eldest son now lives. In 1872 he purchased the Burkett farm of two hundred acres, where he now lives. Besides the eldest son above mentioned, three daughters are married, and are living in the vicinity.
    Mr. Petrie has served as commissioner of highways and as supervisor of the township (1868). In politics he is a Republican. At the age of sixteen he joined the Secession Presbyterian Church of Scotland, his father being an elder in the same for over thirty years. Mr. Petrie has been elder in the church for several years. Coming to this country with very limited means, by untiring industry he has accumulated a handsome fortune, and ranks among the most thrifty of the farmers of the neighborhood.
