George W. Dustin, 2d, was born in Dickinson January 25, 1848, and began life for himself as a farmer, and then
as a merchant at Dickinson Center. Clean, manly, genial and accommodating, he early gained the regard and confidence
of his townsmen, and was chosen supervisor. Becoming interested in politics, and Dickinson having a strong claim
to Republican party recognition, Mr. Dustin won the nomination for county clerk after a hard fight in 1879, and
of course was elected and reelected. In 1886 he entered the employ of A. B. Parmelee & Son, and while with
them was appointed a deputy collector of customs at Malone. In 1892 he removed to Baltimore to take the agency
with Capt. H. B. Meigs of the Aetna Life Ins. Co. for the State of Maryland, but four years later sold his interest
in the business to return to Malone and reengage in the management of the A. B. Parmelee & Son land, and timber
business. Since the death of Morton S. Parmelee in 1897 Mr. Dustin has been in sole charge of the properties and
affairs of the establishment, and has built up in connection with it an important and successful real estate business
of his own. In addition, he never fails to evince a strong and useful interest in local matters and enterprises,
and has held with credit to himself and benefit to various interests many places of trust in the town. He was for
one term a member of the local board of managers of the St. Lawrence Hospital for the Insane at Ogdensburg.
