1897 Biography - H. V. S. Fassett

Fassett, H. V. S., is a scion of an old American family which dates its history back to Revolutionary days, when some members of the family fought on the patriot side. Mr. Fassetts grandfather, Asa Fassett, was a brigade inspector with the rank of major; his father, James A. Fassett, a veteran of the late Civil war, is still living and has been one of the foremost men of the Twin Cities. In 1873 he embarked in the lumber business in Tonawanda, and January 1, 1881, formed a partnership with A. A. Bellinger, (which still exists), to do the business of receiving and forwarding lumber, etc., for Eastern points. For some time Mr. Fassett has been unable to engage actively in business and his son, H. V. S. Fassett, represents him in the firm. H. V. S. Fassett was born in Albany, N. Y., and educated there. He came to North Tonawanda in 1873 and has been associated with the great lumber interests in this city since their inception. The firm of Fassett & Bellinger handle from seventy to one hundred million feet of lumber annually. In 1882 Mr. Fassett married Theodora C. Booth and they have two daughters, Mabel S. and Theodora V.
