(II) Watson E., son of William and Elizabeth (King) Stubbs, was born in Oneida county, New York, 1837. He was educated in the public schools of the town of Phelps, Ontario county, New York, and assisted his father in the cultivation of the home farm from a very early age. He was thus engaged until he was about twenty-eight years of age, when he took up carpentry, which he followed for about nine years. In 1886 he established himself in the lumber trade, organizing a retail and wholesale business in Geneva, New York, for lumber and all the materials connected with it. In this enterprise he has been eminently successful, and twelve years ago admitted his son, George S., to a partnership in the concern. The business is in a very flourishing condition and the annual sales show a constant and very satisfactory increase.
