Mr. Holley has invented means and parts whereby the great
harvesting machines which cut the grain, thresh it, clean it and
sack it as the machine passes through the field, may and will adapt
itself to uneven ground and even side hills. Until his invention
they could not work on uneven ground.

His tilling or levelling device is worked automatically by the
power moving the machine. These machines are so enormous that

For a few years after his return he had the management of
the Union Store at Nicholville, N. Y., when he began the study of
law, took his degree from the Albany Law School and settled in
Albany for the practice, which he did till his death.

genial and hospitable, ready and quick at repartee, ambitious and
confident, with almost marvelous powers of conversation. She
sang well in early and middle life, in churches and on public
occasions. She was the life and spirit of every party or gathering
