Biography of J. Crawford Hoag


Hoag, J. Crawford, Newstead, the present postmaster of Akron, was a son of Hiram W. and Charlotte B. Hoag, and was born May 6, 1865. When he was about one year old his parents moved to Oil City, Pa., where Hiram W. Hoag embarked as an oil producer. He continued in this business with considerable success until his death, which occurred in 1882, and shortly after his death Mrs Hoag, with her son, J. Crawfard, left Oil City and went to Akron. Mr. Hoag had been attending the public schools in Oil City and after coming to Akron was sent to the Clarence Academy. After finishing his education he took a clerkship in the store of H. H. Newton & Son, where he worked three years, when better opportunities were offered in another line, and he became yard master for the N. Y. C. Railroad in Buffalo. About two years were spent here when he decided to return to Akron, and at once entered the hardware store of Eckerson & Harrington. In 1890 Mr. Hoag married Jennie J., daughter of Prof. George G. Chambers of Akron, and they have two children, Hiram C. and George C.
