EDWARD RENDERT—This well-known citizen of Averill Park was born August 25, 1862, at that place, and is a son of William and Caroline (Shrader) Rendert, the former a native of Germany. William Rendert was a brushmaker and farmer of Sand Lake, New York. He died in 1900, at the age of eighty-three, and his widow passed away in 1911, being then eighty-seven years old.

The education of Edward Rendert was received in local schools and he remained on the home farm until his twenty-third year, when he entered, the service of J. H. Warger, who was engaged in the grocery business. At the end of seven years he left him and during the ensuing seven years was employed by the Faith Knitting Company. In 1916 he established a Ford sales agency and garage, which he still conducts. He also deals in farming implements, including harvesters, tractors, and the like. He erected the modern building in which his business is housed and also the two adjoining dwellings.

The vote and influence of Mr, Rendert are given in support of the principles of the Republican party. For four years he served as superintendent of highways, and during the World War he did special work for the State of New York and also for the Federal government. He affiliates with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, of Averill Park, and with the Maccabees. His religious membership is in the Lutheranchurch.

Mr, Rendert married, December 25, 1884, at Sand Lake, Christina Rollman, daughter of John and Margaret Rollman, and they are the parents of one son, William D., born August 14, 1898, at Sand Lake.
