    • Nicholas H. Maybee is one of the "old guard," one of the men
      who have been with the road since the time of its construction.
      He was born in Ashford, Cattaraugus County, New York, June 9,
      1837, and began his active career at the age of 14 as a driver
      for contractors on the construction work of the Erie between
      Great Valley and Little Valley, New York. He remained with them
      until the road was completed, and after hauling the tools away
      used the same team to draw the ties to their places. When
      trains were started running on the new road Mr. Maybee secured
      a position as brakeman and for a year ran on gravel train, and
      then on freight between Olean and Dunkirk. In December, 1862,
      he went to Leavittsburg, Ohio, as brakeman, and in 1863 was
      promoted to yardmaster, being the first man to hold that
      position at Leavittsburg. He remained there until the summer of
      1865, when he went to Meadville as fireman on old No. 12
      engine, and on December 22, 1868, he was promoted to engineer.
      Mr. Maybee then ran freight until the spring of 1875 when he
      was hurt by falling off the engine at Salamanca. This injury
      laid him up for about a year, when he returned to work. In 1879
      he went to Corry and ran a switch engine there until 1886, when
      he returned to road service, and is now on Nos. 37 and 38
      between Corry and Salamanca.
      Mr. Maybee has been in one collision, but was fortunate enough
      to escape injury. On April 26, 1873, he had a car break and run
      into the bridge at Saw Mill Run, putting five cars into the
      creek and knocking the bridge down.
      On December 22, 1859, Mr. Maybee was married to Miss Abbie E.
      Dow, of Hinsdale, New York, and two children have been born to
      them. Josephine, who was 29 years of age at death, was the wife
      of W. E. Reeves; Harmon P., aged 36, is an engineer on the
      Meadville Division, east. Mr. Maybee is a member of B. of L.
      E., Division No. 43; Corry Lodge, No. 470, K. of P., and
      Washington Lodge, No. 2, A.O.U.W., of Corry, and is highly
      regarded as a citizen of worth and intelligence. His father,
      Harmon Maybee, a lumberman of Cattaraugus County, New York, is
      now the oldest living white settler in Salamanca, and lives in
      the house he built there forty years ago.
