Biography of John G. Sayer
Broome County, NY Biographies





JOHN GILROY SAYER, a contractor and builder of Johnson City, New York, was born May 29, 1880, in Washingtonian Hall, Union township, son of John Halbert and Helen (Richards) Sayer, the former being a farmer of this town. The son attended the district and high schools, and learned the trade of carpenter, which he followed as a journeyman for some time, later engaging in contract work on his own account. After becoming established in business as a contractor and builder, he added a service station to his general line of work and in all of these ventures he has met with success. This success is not due to chance however; the business acumen and the industrious thrift of Mr. Sayer have been the important factors in its attainment. He is one of the esteemed and respected citizens of Johnson City, and among his contemporaries in business he holds a foremost place.

He is connected with the City National Bank of Binghamton, and in politics is a member of the Democratic party. For seven years Mr. Sayer was in the United States Regular army, serving in the National Guard, and was discharged April 1, 1919. He is not affiliated with any fraternal organization or a member of any clubs, the many demands made upon his time by his business making it impossible to give his attention to these other matters.

On October 12, 1901, John Gilroy Sayer married, in. Haddon Hall, Anna Bell Meserau, daughter of Cornelius and Louisa Jane Meserau, and they are the parents of three sons: John M., Harold C., and Edwin. The family attend and aid in the support of the Methodist church of Johnson City.
