HENRY ISRAEL7 SEYMOUR (1824-1870) was a chair manufacturer, of Troy. Endowed with a mind of extraordinary vigor, he strengthened and enriched it by extensive reading and earnest thought, and few of his fellow-citizens were able to cope with him in discussions of questions of the day. He was not without his prejudices; but he also possessed in a large degree the qualities of a warm and generous friendship, and those who knew him intimately were strongly attached to him. He was a good friend to the poor, and gave with no grudging hand to those who required assistance. He never forgot a friendly act, and in after years more than repaid some of those who aided him in his early career. As a business man, he was not merely successful; he gave employment to hundreds of persons, and contributed largely to the prosperity of Troy.
