JESSE B. HUSTED. Among the energetic and successful businessmen in Rensselaer County is Jesse B. Husted, a long resident of the beautiful village of Nassau.

He was born in the town of Schodack, Rensselaer County, N. Y., the 27th day of May, 1833. He early in life began for himself, and carved out his own fortune.

With fair observation, good judgment of men and events, and fertile in resources, he originated and established the card printing business. From this enterprise Nassau is known throughout the States, Canada, South America, and in China and Japan. Pluck, untiring industry, and a free use of the press has made this not only a large but a permanent industry. In it he has given employment to many persons, aiding largely in making the village prosperous.

When the post office of Nassau went begging, Mr. Husted was appointed as postmaster, and in a short time so increased its revenues as to make it a presidential appointment office.

Jesse B. Husted's wife is a daughter of David Shaver. She is a lady of charitable practices, and has many warm friends among the poor, and is universally esteemed wherever she is known.
