"WELLS BYINGTON. MRS. WELLS BYINGTON. WELLS BYINGTON. Among the venerablepioneers who by thei r own industry laid the foundation for the presentwealth they now enjoy, we offer the gentlem an whose name heads this briefhistory as an example, feeling that what is said of him is bu t a fittingtribute to his sterling worth. He was born Nov. 8, 1808, in Connecticut,was the th ird in a family of six children of Daniel and Hannah (Alcox)Byington, who were both natives o f Connecticut. When Wells was but sevenyears of age his parents moved to Chenango Co., N. Y. , where they bothdied, the mother in 1835, the father struggling against the vicissitudesof l ife until 1843, when he too was called to the unknown. His father wasa farmer, consequently h is boyhood days were similar to those of themajority of farmers' sons,-plenty of hard work, a nd but little time foreducation or recreation. When he reached his majority, he started in li fefor himself, hiring out by the month, which he pursued for three years,or until 1832, whe n he turned his face towards the far West, leaving homeand friends behind, having one hundre d dollars laid by of the wagesearned by the sweat of his brow. The first two years he worke d for Mr.Barnes, with whom he came to Michigan. In 1834 he located the farm wherehis son no w lives, section 28, Barry township, it being the second farmlocated in that town. In the fal l of 1834 he returned to New York. Oct.6, 1836, he secured a helpmeet by marrying Miss Betse y Gordon, of MadisonCo., N. Y., where she was born March 7, 1809, she being the oldest in ago od old-fashioned family of eleven children. Her father was a native ofNew Hampshire, her moth er of Connecticut, but both died in New York, thefather in 1827, the mother in 1850, and no w lie quietly resting, side byside, with naught but a marble slab to mark the sacred spot. Af termarriage, he, with his young bride, started for the West, arriving inKalamazoo County, Nov . 8, 1836, working by the month some two years onGull Prairie; then moved on their farm, loca ted in 1834, and commenced inearnest to improve their new home. Here they remained some thirt y-fiveyears, when he sold it to his only surviving child, Henry M., who is nowon the farm. Th ey never had but two children. Their oldest, George N.,born Dec. 30, 1837, died Oct. 18, 1849 . Mr. and Mrs. Byington have a finehome at Hickory Corners, Barry township, where they expec t to pass theremainder of their days in ease and comfort. Mr. Byington is in the truest sens e of the word a self-made man; starting in life his onlycapital a strong arm and willing hear t, by industry and economy he hasamassed a comfortable competency. In politics he is a Democr at, castinghis first vote for Jackson, and has represented his party at differenttimes in min or offices. Mrs. Byington is a worthy member of the BaptistChurch,his views on religion bein g liberal. Mr. Byington's grandfatherwas a native of Connecticut, and held a commission as li eutenant fromGeorge III. in the French war, but when the Revolutionary war broke outhe took u p arms with the colonies, serving through the struggle. Died inMay, 1824, at the advanced ag e of eighty-seven years."

Wells Byington and wife, a newly-married couple from New York, reachedPrairieville in the spr ing of 1837. They occupied the house built byYoungs Gilkey. As an illustration of the small t roubles which, as well asthe great ones, so frequently annoyed the pioneer, we may mention th atone morning, finding he had no fire and having no means of lighting one,Mr. Byington was ob liged to take a shovel and go two miles and a half tothe house of C. W. Spaulding for a few c oals of fire. Mr. Byingtonsubsequently moved to Barry township, where he still lives.
