      FREDERICK STARR
      [picture of Frederick Starr]
      Residents of Rochester who lived here before or during the civil war are the only ones who can appreciate the influence which was exerted on the community by Frederick Starr and men of his character; their lives were a constant struggle against the evil tendencies in public affairs, and an inspiration to all that was noble and good. Mr. Starr was born in Warren, Connecticut, May 1, 1799. His schoolmates included his cousin, Charles G. Finney, the famous evangelist, and Horace Bushnell, the noted preacher. At the age of twenty he went to New York as a clerk in the bookstore of his uncle, and two years later came to this city, where he began the manufacture of furniture, being the pioneer in what has become one of our heading industries, and building up a large business, which he gave up in 1850 to enter upon the manufacture of pianos. He early identified himself with the First Presbyterian church, in which he was an elder for thirty years; he also helped to organize the Central church, and was a corporate member of the American board. He was an early and practical friend of the temperance cause, to which he gave freely to both time and money. He held strict views on Sabbath observance and assisted in organizing a Sabbath-keeping line of packets on the canal; also working for the stoppage of mails on Sunday. He took a leading part in all work intended for improvement; was foreman of a fire engine company and became the first exempt fireman; assisted in the organization of the first High school and the Rochester Female seminary; was an original trustee of the City hospital, was an early and ardent advocate of free public schools, and aided in securing Ward's museum to the city. He was among the foremost in the Anti-Masonic party and held pronounced anti-slavery views was originally a Free Soiler and joined the Republican party on its formation. He was a member of the Legislature for one term and declined reelection in favor of a friend, Hon. Ashley Sampson. He was for years president of the Monroe County Bible society, and was a member of the Auburn convention of 1837, which led to the formation of the new-school branch of the Presbyterian Church; he was president of the Board of Commissioners of Auburn Theological seminary; a trustee of Ingham university at Le Roy, and an advocate of higher education for women. When the Kansas border warfare broke out he allowed his gifted son, Frederick, to settle in the dangerous locality, and when the war for the Union began sent two sons to the army and paid for a substitute for a third, who was at college. Mr. Starr was a forcible speaker and writer and such a believer in the power of the press that he established the Genesee Evangelist and published it here for several years. He was a man of unswerving integrity, great force of character, pure-minded, philanthropic, and an enemy of everything low or mean. In 1822 he married Sarah Sackett of Warren, Connecticut, who died in 1827, leaving two sons, neither of whom are living. In 1831 he married Lucy Ann Hills of Lennox, Massachusetts, a sister of the late ex-mayor Isaac Hills, and a lovely, cultured woman whose memory is revered by all who knew her. She survived her husband - who died November 27, 1869 - thirteen years, and four of her children are living.
