    THEODORE F. OLMSTED, Cashier of the Genesee Valley National Bank of Geneseo, a prominent and influential citizen of the village, was born at Lakeville, Livingston County, September 16, 1836. His father, Lucius F. Olmsted, who was born
    March 10, 1796, was a native of Vermont, as was also his grandfather, Asher, being a life long resident of that State.
    Theodore F. Olmsted received the first rudiments of his education in the district schools. He then entered the Canandaigua Academy, where he studied for two years. Then after one year’s clerkship at Geneseo he returned to the former institution, and finished the course. On August 16, 1853, he entered the employ of Bishop & Olmsted at Geneseo, and stayed with them until February 24, 1858, when he accepted a position in the Genesee Valley National Bank as book-keeper and teller. After more than twenty years of faithful service, on June 25, 1881, he received the appointment of Assistant Cashier, and on December 17, 1884, was made Cashier, which position he still holds, and has the entire confidence of the officials. June 9, 1877, he was elected a Director of the bank; and at the present time he is a leading power in all matters relating to the institution. Mr. Olmsted is one of the foremost in all local public affairs. He is Secretary and Treasurer of the Temple Hill Cemetery, and Secretary and Treasurer of the Geneseo Gas and Electric Light Company, and Treasurer of the Geneseo Driving Park Association. He is a member of the Board of Water Commissioners, also Secretary and Treasurer of the board and Business Manager, to which he was elected in 1887, and is a director of the Geneseo glove and mitten factory. He is a member of the Board of Health, and has been elected a Trustee of the village for several terms. He is a stanch supporter of the Republican party, and, having been elected to the office of County Treasurer, found time to serve in that capacity from 1870 to 1875.

    On May 13, 1861, Mr. Olmsted married Miss Laura E. Bissell, daughter of the late Daniel H. Bissell, who was for forty years a practitioner of high repute in Geneseo. Dr. Bissell was for six years connected with the floating hospital in New York City, and had held many public offices in the village, where he was Assessor, Supervisor, and United States Assessor of Internal Revenues. He passed his declining years at the home of his daughter. Mr. and Mrs. Olmsted have had but one child, who died in infancy. They are prominent members of the Presbyterian church, Mr. Olmsted being a Trustee, and his wife an earnest worker in the Sunday-school and missionary matters. Mr. Olmsted is a man of progressive ideas, a skilful and judicious financier, a liberal contributor to all deserving charities, and an enthusiastic worker for the general welfare of the community. His sturdy adherence to honesty and faithful attention to his duties have brought him to his present high position, which is in truth a just reward for an exemplary business career.
