CORNELIUS LYNDE had a good common school education; worked on his father's farm in the summer and taught school in the winter until he was about twenty-five years of age. Being unable to endure the labors of a farm he entered the store of his brother-in-law, Calvin Ainsworth, at Williamstown, and after a time removed to Johnson, Vermont, where he began mercantile business, which he continued about fifteen years; removed to the west and went into a land office at Des Moines, Iowa, where he remained a number of years. He afterward lived with his son Cornelius at Rock Island, Illinois, and removed thence to River Falls, Wisconsin, to reside with a daughter (Lucy S Wilcox wife of Dr. Robert J Wilcox); died there.
