  • Notes 
    • - Nevin, Henry F., Ogdensburg, was born on the old homestead in Oswegatchie in 1845. He received a good education in the schools of this town and has always followed agricultural pursuits. He owns the old homestead of 100 acres, located near Ogdensburg on the Morristown road, and was married in 1889. He is a prominent Mason and has served in various local offices. His ancestors date back to the Mayflower in this country, and are of Scotch and Irish extraction. They participated in the Revolutionary war, and have always been prominent citizens and influential members of society. From: "Our County and It's People, A memorial record of St. Lawrence County, New York" edited by Gates Curtis. The Boston History Co., Publishers 1894.

      - Henry Francis Nevin was born in 1845 in Oswegatchie, St. Lawrence County, at the old family homestead. He married Lavina Como at the farm. The Nevin family Bible records the wedding as most probably in 1889 but the last number of the year is erased. Family legend has it that the first child was already on the way at this time. It is noted that the wedding took place Oct. 13, in the presence of Benj. Nevin, L. Nevin, Holmes Nevin and L.A. Tamblin.

      - In 1905 Henry was working as a steam engineer and was living at 78 King St. He owned the 100-acre Nevin homestead on the Morristown Road. He was a prominent Mason and served in several local offices.

      - Record from Mary Ferguson Huse demonstrates Henry Francis Nevin, 40, and Vina Como, 20, were married by Dr. Miller of the Presbyterian Church, Ogdensburg, Oct. 13, 1888, as verified by church custodian of records Elwin B. Hobbs on Aug. 21, 1935.

      - We have an old photo courtesy of Mary Ferguson Huse of two horses pulling what appears to be an enclosed passenger sleigh, nicely painted, with a door and two glass windows in the front and four glass windows on each side, with H.F. Nevin painted in large letters on the side.

      - According to his daughter Frances, Henry Nevin was the first to bottle milk and deliver it to homes in Ogdensburg.
