Pioneering Families
... with Roots in Madison County

Frederick T. Carrington, born in Clinton, N.Y. in October, 1801, was educated at Hartwick Academy in Cooperstown. His father Elisha soon moved to Madison and about 1827 came to Oswego where Frederick T. engaged in business as a hardware merchant. The latter became a large holder of real estate and always had an abiding faith in the future of the city. About 1843 he formed a partnership with Myron Pardee as manufacturers of flour and as produce and commission merchants. The firm dissolved and was succeeded by Carrington & Preston (William J. Preston). He was interested in public improvements, especially in the Oswego and Syracuse Railroad Company of which he was president. He died August 25, 1875.
