Son of Isaac Caryl, Sr. and Susan (Snell) Caryl

In 1841 "he was elected to the Legislature by a majority in the county of more than 1400, and in the town by 139 when the parties were nearly balanced. The year following he was elected Supervisor. In 1837 he erected the hotel opposite his store, As early as 1835 he advocated the feasibility of a Railroad from Albany to Binghamton, after the coal lands in Pennsylvania had been discovered, as the best if not the only outlet to Eastern markets. At a meeting of three counties at Schoharie Court House, Mr. Caryl made the principal address, as well as at Oneonta and at different points along the route, year after year, and Albany during the session of the Legislature, watching and looking after his favourite project, and it is not saying too much to claim for him the pioneership of this enterprise ..."
