GEORGE HENRY TOULSON - Nine years ago George Henry Toulson came to Endicott, New York, from the city of Buffalo and engaged in business as a plumber; he started in a modest way and so well did he gain the confidence of those who sought his services that three years later he was in a position to extend the scope of his business many fold. In 1917 he opened a hardware store in addition to his business of plumbing and heating, and today this is one of the foremost business places in Endicott.

Mr. Toulson was born August 2, 1880, in the town of Albert, Orleans county, New York, son of John and Sarah Ann (Hesketh) Toulson. His education was obtained in the public schools, and when a young man he apprenticed himself to learn the plumber's trade. For several years he worked as a journeyman and much of this time was spent in the city of Buffalo.

Mr. Toulson is highly respected among his business associates and fellow citizens. In politics he is a Liberal Republican, and he is very prominent in fraternal organizations. He is a thirty second degree Mason, and a member of the Mystic Shrine. For twenty one years he has been a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows; he was a charter member of the Chamber of Commerce, and is now (1923) serving as president, and also a member of the Rotary Club.

George Henry Toulson married, in Williamsville, New York, October 3,1906, Laura J. Elute, born there June 20, 1880, daughter of John H. Mute. The latter was a millwright by occupation and was born December 22, 1849; he died July 11, 1919. His wife, Susan (Kline) Mute, was born September 9, 1852. Mrs. Mute survives her husband.
