  • Notes 
    • Palmer, sr., James, was born in London, England, February 13, 1821, and came with his parents to America when nine years old. The family first settled in Utica, where he was educated. At the age of sixteen he engaged in the manufacture of fire works in that city. In 1842 he came to Rochester and resumed the same business on the site of the present Palmer block on East Main street, continuing successfully in the same until 1876, when he retired from active life. He was succeeded by the firm of James Palmer's Sons (James, jr., Sand Joseph W.), who still carry on the business under the corporate title of the Rochester Fire Works Co. In 1878 he removed to the town of Brighton, where he now resides. He built the present Palmer block in 1868. In 1842 Mr. Palmer married Eliza Gardner of Utica, who died in 1873. His second wife was Miss Abbie Baldwin of Rochester. Peter Palmer, his father, was also a pyrotechnist, died at Rochester in March, 1895, at the advanced age of ninety-six years. He has nine children living: James, jr., John P. (one of the managers of the Warner Safe Cure Company), Joseph W., Charles H. (cashier of the Traders' National Bank), Jerome B., George W., Fred D., Mrs. George W. Crouch, jr., and Mrs. Jerome Dietrich.
