Farley Craw1

M, b. 12 February 1824, d. 13 March 1901
     Farley Craw was born on 12 February 1824 at Cheshire Township, Berkshire, Massachusetts, USA.1 He was the son of Harlow Craw and Sarah McLauth. Farley Craw married Millicent Bonker, daughter of William Bonker and Amanda Bunyea, on 4 July 1847 at White Lake, Oakland, Michigan, USA.1,2 Farley Craw died on 13 March 1901 at Caro, Tuscola, Michigan, USA, at age 77.3,4
     FARLEY CRAW. Having for many years been a resident of Caro, Mr. Craw is well known, not only in the village itself but also throughout the community, as a man of sound, sensible views and an influential citizen. Scrupulously honest and just in all his dealings, these characteristics, together with his genial and obliging nature, have won him many steadfast friends. He is alive to the important issues of the day and is every willing to lend a helping hand in pushing forward all enterprises that contribute to the public good. A native of the old Bay State, Mr. Craw was born February 12, 1824, in Cheshire Township, Berkshire County, and is the son of Harlow and Sarah (McLauth) Craw. The parents were born in Massachusetts and were of Scotch ancestry. Our subject was three years old when he was brought by his parents too Oneida County, N. Y., where he grew to a stalwart and vigorous manhood. His father, a poor man, having lost his health when about forty years old, Farley became the chief dependence and the mainstay of the family. His time was completely taken up with his duties at home so that he received only a very limited education, but as he has always been a close student of public affairs and a keen observer of men and things, he has gained a large fund of knowledge and is a well-informed man. On the July following his twenty-first birthday our subject came to Michigan, where he located in Oakland County. For two years he sojourned under his cousin's roof, working to pay his board and employing his spare time in studying with the cousin, who was a highly educated man. Later he was engaged as a common laborer and by close observation gained practical ideas of business principles. On July 4, 1847, he was married to Miss Milla Bonker, who was born in Montezuma, Cayuga County, N. Y., April 17, 1830. This estimable lady is the daughter of William and Amanda (Bunyea) Bonker, both of whom were born in New York State, of German ancestry. After his marriage Mr. Craw worked as a laborer for several years. When the late war broke out he was offered a commission as Colonel but on account of throat trouble could not enter the service. The first time Mr. Craw was nominated for office was in Davisburg, Oakland County, when he was elected Justice of the Peace in 1858. His defeated opponent was a former member of the legislature. In 1861 Mr. Craw was appointed Postmaster at Davisburg and held that position until he removed to Caro five years later. He was successful as a public official, being accommodating, painstaking and genial, and withal had the reputation of being the best accountant in the vicinity. At the time of his removal to Caro he was serving both as Justice of the Peace and Postmaster at Davisburg. He reached this village March 20, 1866, and on the following day a caucus was held for nominating officers. He received the nomination as Justice of the Peace and was in due time elected, serving from that time continuously until 1883. In 1867 Mr. Craw was appointed Postmaster at Caro and served efficiently in this position until 1888, it being made a Presidential post-office in 1880. Finding his duties as Justice of the Peace and Postmaster to arduous, he resigned the former office and continued to officiate in the latter capacity. Such confidence did the Government show in him that his post-office was only inspected once during his entire term of office. In 1889 he began to operate as a pension agent and has been quite successful in this line. He was again elected Justice of the Peace in 1890 and is now serving in this capacity, having the greatest portion of the work in his jurisdiction. He and his excellent wife have a family of eight children: Laura married Warren Leonard, a farmer in Almer Township; Lucy became the wife of Preston Cooley and lives in Watrousville; Harlow resides in Caro; Adjet J. is living in Almer Township; Frank S. makes his home in Grand Rapids; Charles in Caro; Vina, the wife of Daniel Cummins, lives in Caro; and Effie is the wife of J. M. Denyes, whose sketch appears elsewhere in this volume. When Mr. Craw came too Caro he erected what was at that time the largest store in the county and he has in various other ways been instrumental in advancing the interests of the community. While in Oakland County in 1860 he began in the mercantile business on a small scale, having gained practical knowledge of merchandising through his former experience as a clerk. The store which he built is now occupied by F. O. Watrous and is on the corner of State and Burnside Streets. Through a successful career as a merchant Mr. Craw accumulated money and was once worth $12,000, but through the chicanery of others he was forced into bankruptcy. He is now comfortably situated with enough too provide his declining years with the comforts of life and has been enabled to give his children good educations and aid them in starting out in the world for themselves.5

M. Denyes, whose sketch appears elsewhere in this volume.

    When Mr. Craw came to Caro he erected what was at that time the largest store in the county and he has in various other ways been instrumental in advancing the interests of the community. While in Oakland County in 1860 he began in the mercantile business on a small scale, having gained practical knowledge of merchandising through his former experience as a clerk. The store which he built is now occupied by F. O. Watrous and is on the corner of State and Burnside Streets. Through a successful career as a merchant Mr. Craw accumulated money and was once worth $12,000, but through the chicanery of others he was forced into bankruptcy. He is now comfortably situated with enough to provide his declining years with the comforts of life and has been enabled to give his children good educations and aid them in starting out in the world for themselves.

Nehamiah Bunyea

M
     Nehamiah Bunyea married Lucy Converse.
     In the summer or fall of 1818, Mr. Nehemiah Bunyea penetrated the forest to the northern part of the island, and built a house on the present site of the old Soule's homestead, and the next spring was joined there by his father-in-law, Elias Converse. In the following year, and while there was yet no bridge over Crusoe creek, and no road beyond, Vredenberg moved over on to the island and lived in a log house, some twenty rods back east from the present road, opposite Mr. Peter Albright's present residence. George Vredenberg subsequently married Sallie, the younger daughter of Elias Converse, and their eldest child is said to have been the first one born in the town. Mr. Bunyea, after living only one or two years on the Soule's place, moved down to and took charge of the Kingsbury farm, where Mr. Wirts now lives, and built a barn thereon for the owner, being the first barn built on the island, and subsequently moved to Montezuma, erected there for the respective owners, Dr. Clark and Jethro Wood (the famous plowman) the two conspicuous dwelling-houses on the hill that have been land-marks during the last half-century; and also the first bridges across the Cayuga and Canandaigua outlets, on the marsh west of Montezuma, for the Turnpike company. His daughter married Dr. William May, the first physician settled at Montezuma, who became an extensive land-owner on the island 'May's Point' taking its name from him-and was long and well known in Savannah. While Mr. Bunyea occupied the Kingsbury place, Stackus built and occupied a small log house under the west brow of Fort Hill, where be busied himself in getting out oak staves and heading for barrels, for which a market was sometimes found at Montezuma. On the top of this hill, overlooking all the surrounding country, there were and still are, the outlines of an ancient earthwork, supposed to have been a work of defense; hence the name ' Fort Hill,' which it yet bears; but when, or by whom, it was erected or for what purpose, tradition furnishes no satisfactory answer.1
