    • Azariah was educated in the common schools, Franklin Academy, Genesee
      Wesleyan Seminary, and Starkey Seminary, and has always been a farmer
      by occupation. April 25, 1861, he enlisted in the 34th Regt. N.Y.
      Inf., and was corporal of Co. I, and served with this regiment until
      the battle of Fair Oaks, where he was wounded by receiving a bullet in
      the neck, in consequence of which he was discharged July 30, 1862.
      His title of Major comes from his being in that office with the
      National Guard after the war. Politically, he was a Republican and
      was elected to the State Legislature in the fall of 1877, serving the
      session of 1878, and re-elected and served the session of 1879. In
      the fall of 1883 he was again a candidate but was defeated, and in
      1886 was elected to the same position, and re-elected in the fall of
      1887, having been five times nominated by acclamation. He has been
      prominently indentified with the management of the Steuben County
      Agricultural Society, was two years president, four years
      vice-president, and is serving his sixth consecutive year as
      secretary. He is also president of the New York State Association of
      County Agricultural Society. He has been a member of the Grange
      nineteen years, and was one of the promoters of Pleasant Valley
      Grange. He helped to organize the Patrons' Fire Relief Association,
      of which he has been president eighteen years, which was effected in
      1881, and in 1887 he was made president of the State Association,
      which office he held seven years. He has been master of the Grange
      several times. He is a member of Custer Post, No.8, G.A.R., and has
      been its commander and quatermaster, passing the subordinate chairs.
      He has always been a warm supporter of church and school
      work."[CI:247:?1:CI]
