    He left home at the age of 14 years and became a Civil Engineer. His first work was on the Erie Canal. After his marriage he settled in Princeton, N.J. He occupied a prominent position in the community, being actively connected with the earliest and most important improvements in the State. He was Sheriff of Mercer County, N.J., for three years; was Mayor of the Borough of Princeton for several terms; Treasurer of the Princeton Theological Seminary for twelve years, and for thirty-three years was connected with the Princeton Bank as cashier, and in other offices. He was a member of the 1st Presbyterian Church of Princeton and for some years previous to his death held the office of Deacon. Mr. Olmsted possessed qualities that won for him the respect and confidence of the community, and the warmest attachment of a large circle of friends. Strict integrity, a delicate sense of honor, a faithful conscientious discharge of duty, frank and conciliating manners were the traits that distinguished him, and contributed to his successful career.
