First Fifty Years of Cazenovia Seminary


Madison County

Sketches of Students of First Decade.

  DANIEL A. REXFORD was born in Sherburne, Chenango County, New York, May 12, 1813. Attended the Seminary in 1830 and 1831. Was married October 2, 1850, to Miss Fannie M. Lincoln, of Albany.
  Mr. Rexford was engaged in mercantile pursuits in Sherburne from 1831 to 1840, when he joined the firm of J. Pratt & Co., in the transportation business, taking charge of the New York branch, residing in the city until the winter of 1851-52, when failing health compelled him to relinquish all business. The remaining years of his life were spent in a vain search for health, and he died at his early home in Sherburne, June 12, 1856, where his widow and two daughters still reside. Mr. Rexford was blessed with an amiable and kind disposition, which endeared him to all of his fellow-students; and he proved himself to be, in after life, a very worthy, estimable citizen.
