    1. [S1553] Biographical review: Hampden County, Massachusetts, (Ancestry.com) (Reliability: 2), 24 Feb 2017.
      Bigraphical Review, p. 136

      EDWARD ALLEN KELLOGG is a fine representative of the agricultural element of the town of Agawam, Hampden County, where he has a well-improved farm, which he carefully cultivates, and is also intimately identified with its manufacturing and mercantile interests as an extensive dealer in lumber and live stock. He is a son of the late Richard Kellogg, and was born September 2, 1851, in Feeding Hills, in this town.

      Richard Kellogg, it is thought, was a native of Hampshire County, being a son of Whitney C. and Betsey Kellogg. At the age of sixteen years he bought his time of his father; and,
      possessing the true Yankee's wit and love of trade, he started out on foot with two trunks of tin filled with notions, useful and ornamental, and was so successful in disposing of his wares that he continued in the business several years, purchasing at length a pair of horses and a wagon, with which he peddled throughout this section of the country. Later, he established himself in mercantile business in Southampton, where he remained a number of years, having a large and lucrative trade. Coming then to Agawam, he bought a farm in Feeding Hills; and in its cultivation and improvement he spent the remainder of his years, dying June 18, 1892. His second wife, whose maiden name was Electa Allen, was born April 26, 1819, at Roberts's Meadow, Northampton, a daughter of Elijah and Eleeta (Warner) Allen. She died in October, 1865, leaving but one child, Edward Allen, of whom we write. The father subsequently married Elizabeth F. Spencer, who is now a resident of Springfield.

      After receiving his preliminary education in the district school, young Kellogg attended a Springfield school, and later the Williston Seminary in Easthampton. Having inherited his father's taste for trade, and having practically the entire charge of the home farm when only seventeen years old, he made a specially of dealing in live stock, and, using excellent judgment, made it profitable. Mr. Kellogg subsequently became interested in the lumber business, operating chiefly in Suffield, Conn., and Southwick, Mass., buying standing timber, which he manufactured into lumber and sold to dealers and builders. During all of this time he has carried on the home farm which he inherited, and which is pleasantly located about a quarter of a mile from Feeding Hills Coners. In his agricultural labors he exhibits the same skill, enterprise, and keen foresight that has ever characterized his other dealings, and has met with excellent success in all of his various undertakings.

      On November 29, 1871, Mr. Kellogg was united in marriage to Alice Martha Rising, a native of Southwick, Mass., and the daughter of Alvin Rising. Her father, who was a son of Samuel and Sarah Rising. removed from Suffield, Conn., the place of his nativity, to Southwick, where he carried on general farming the remainder of his days. His wife, Lucinda Emily Sackett, was a native of Southwick, Mass., and the daughter of Royal and Eunice (Hastings) Sackett, well-known and highly esteemed residents of that town. Mr. and Mrs. Kellogg have two children -- Alvin Richard and Frank Whipple.

      Mr. Kellogg is held in high regard by his neighbors and fellow-townsmen; and his influence and assistance are always sought in behalf of public enterprises, as a man who has at heart the highest interests of the community. In polities he is a firm supporter of the principles of the Republican party, and for the past three years has served as Superintendent of Streets in the town of Agawam. Religiously, he and his wife are valued members of the Congregational church.
