Hathaway, Charles E., & Son. - The pottery of Charles E. Hathaway & Son, while not the most extensive, enjoys a large and influential trade in the distribution of its products, which find a ready market in all the principal cities of the United States, besides a large export trade to Canada. The members of the firm are practical men; Mr. Charles E. Hathaway began the business when only eighteen years of age, having learned the art with David Purington of Somerset, and afterwards with the Somerset Pottery Co., which later became the Somerset & Johnsonburg Manufacturing Co., where he was made superintendent and remained until 1893, then in connection with his sen Howard, established the present business. An experience of twenty seven years in the art places the firm in a position to command the confidence of the large number of patrons who handle the products of the concern, which consists of a general line of stone and earthen ware, flower pots and all the various kinds and styles of tile for electrical insulation. The firm has extensive dealingc in the latter goods with electrical outfitters and electrical corn panies throughout the country and the Dominion. In 1873 Mr. Hathaway married Mary E. Sherman, and their children are Howard W., in business with his father; Sidney L., who resides in Pottersville; Florence S., Marion P., Alice L., Anna G. and Charles E., jr., who reside at home.
