Munson, Hiram D., was born at Bowmansville, Ontario, Can., August 11, 1826, a son of Truman M. Munson, a shipbuilder, now deceased. He worked his way through boarding school at Buffalo, whither his parents had removed during his infancy, and early in life learned the nursery business, which he has always followed. In 1867 he removed to Grand Island, where he bought a farm and carried on fruit growing and the nursery business for ten years, and then removed to La Salle, where he has since remained, engaging in fruit growing. January 12, 1853, he married Mary Dickinson of Buffalo. Mr. Munson has practically retired from active business and now lives a quiet life respected by all. In politics he always has been an ardent Republican, and has served the town of Grand Island as assessor. He is a member of Frontier Lodge No. 132, F. & A.
