Henry Clay Wilcox

Wilcox, Henry Clay, of Granby, son of Edmund W. and Matilda (Farnsworth) Wilcox, was born in Cambridge, August 20, 1842.

After receiving the educational advantages of the Cambridge and Johnson public schools, at the age of nineteen he found employment in the U. S. Armory, at Springfield, Mass., where he remained till the close of the civil war, when he returned to Johnson and for three years labored on his father's farm. For the next seven years he was variously employed as a manufacturer of butter tubs, clerk of a hotel in Hyde Park, and foreman in different establishments engaged in the lumber trade. In 1882 he assumed the general superintendence of the Buck & Wilcox Lumber Co., a very important and responsible position, the duties of which he satisfactorily discharged up to 1885, when they sold to C. H. Stevens & Co., since which time he has been in the employ of C. H. Stevens & Co. and the Northern Lumber Co.

Mr. Wilcox was formerly deputy-sheriff at Johnson, and since his removal to Granby has been the incumbent of several important offices, serving as justice and selectman; he was the Republican representative of Granby in 1886 to 1890, and a prominent candidate for senator from his county in the convention of that party in 1892. Mr. Wilcox is regarded as a man of sound business capacity and great general intelligence.

For more than a quarter of a century he has belonged to the Masonic fraternity, has held the office of W. M. in Eden Lodge, No. 69, H. P. of Tucker Chapter, and District Deputy G. M.
