Saddlesom, Ransom, was born in Cambria, N. Y., December 24, 1835, a son of Christopher and Cynthia (Holmes) Saddlesom. The grandfather, Michael Saddlesom, came to Cambria, bringing his family just after the close of the war of 1812, and taking up about 150 acres of land, which is mostly owned by Ransom Saddlesom. Ransom Saddlesom was educated in the common schools and has always resided on the homestead farm, making a specialty of grapes. In 1859 he married Laura E. Pardee, and they have four children: Loren, farmer at Cambria; Anna Bell and Lena Bell, died in infancy, and Sadie E., wife of James Gould of Syracuse, N. Y. Mr. Saddlesom is a Democrat, but does not aspire to office.
