Charles E. Barrup, Postmaster of Esperance, Schoharie County, N. Y., was born August 12, 1855, in Carlisle, this county. His paternal grandfather was a veteran of the War of 1812, and was attached to the staff of General Jackson.

Charles E. Barrup received his education in the district schools, which he attended until reaching the age of sixteen years, when he found employment and became self-supporting. In 1884 he opened a harness shop in Esperance, and he has since conducted the business very successfully up to the present time. Mr. Barrup has taken a prominent part in town affairs. He has twice been elected Town Clerk, and he has been a member of the County Committee. He is an active Democratic worker, and has done much to advance the cause of his party locally. He is a member of Schoharie Lodge, F. & A. M.

In 1879 Mr. Barrup was united in marriage with Miss Sarah Reed, daughter of Henry Reed, of Esperance. Mr. Barrup's mother is a descendant of the family of Shafers that figured largely in the earlier history of Schoharie County. Her grandfather and her great-grandfather were prominent in the construction of the Lutheran church of Cobleskill, which some six years ago celebrated its centennial.
