John Lewis, youngest son of John V. and Ellen (Stryker) Salisbury. was born at the family homestead in Phelps, September 17, 1875. After graduating from the Phelps high school he pursued a course in agriculture at Cornell University, and being thus well equipped for the cultivation of the soil upon scientific principles, he proceeded to apply himself with energy to that honorable calling. In addition to general farming he specializes in the production of fruit, and through the application of scientific methods to that branch of agriculture he has obtained results which have proved both gratifying and remunerative. He is actively interested in the Patrons of Husbandry and at the present time is master of the local grange. He is a leading member of the Presbyterian church, now (1910) serving as its treasurer, and also as a member of its board of trustees.

Mr. Salisbury married, in 1904, H. Lulu Ringer, daughter of Jacob Ringer, of Phelps. They have one son, Arthur J.. born August 8, 1907.
