Albion,MI 100 Years Ago - OCTOBER 1904 Morning Star, October 10, 2004 pg. 23 "The death last week of A. B. Cornell, ex-governor of New York, awakened remembrances among some of Albion's oldest citizens. Mr. Cornell was a son of Ezra Cornell, the founder of Cornell College. Ezra Cornell was president of the old Erie & Michigan telegraph company, established in 1846 and made his headquarters here in Albion. His father and mother are buried in the Wood lot in Riverside Cemetery. Mr. Orson B. Wood, who is a cousin of Ezra Cornell, has the original stock subscription book of the Company, with the signatures of the subscribers of stock. Such names as S. B. Morse, the Morse code man, and Amos Kendall, the famous lawyer, are attached
