Buffalo Courier - August 13, 1892 p.6
Obituary - Death of Hiram P. Dudley

After about a week's illness, Hiram P. Dudley died yesterday of heart failure at the age of 75 years. He was an old resident of Buffalo and long a well known business man.

Born at Sheldon, N.Y., in 1817, he came here in 1837, and was employed as a clerk by Ralph Courter on Central Wharf. Soon thereafter he engaged in the grocery business which he long carried on successfully at the corner of Seneca and Washington streets, where the Post Office now stands.

Still later, with his two brothers, he started a drygoods store at Fredonia, where they did well until their establishment was unfortunately destroyed by fire, causing the loss of nearly all that Mr. Dudley had accomplished.

He came back to this city to begin over again, engaging in the grocery trade at No. 316 Main Street. Mayor Charles F. Bishop was a clerk for him there, obtaining his first experience of business ways in that store.

In 1874, Mr. Dudley entered the coal business in which he continued for a number of years. For the last two years he had been employed in the office of the Water Department.

Mr. Dudley was married in 1843 to Miss Fannie Andrews of Leon, N.Y., who with their one son, C. H. Dudley, survives him.

The funeral will take place from the residence of his nephew, W. P. Andrews, No. 114 Cleveland Avenue, next Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock.
