McMullen, George C.- Among the native born citizens of Watertown, there is none who has taken a more prominent part in the development of city and county than Mr. George C. McMullen. He was born August 29, 1851, and received his education from the public schools of his native city. He learned the grocery business in the employ of Messrs. Munday & Son, and was associated with Messrs. Ethridge & Go., of Rome, N Y., for eighteen years, at the end of which time the firm of McMullen & Sons was established. Aside from his extensive affairs in the wholesale grocery business he is also connected with other business enterprises, being vicepresident of the Watertown Savings Bank, a director of the Union Carriage and Gear Company, and a trustee of the City Hospital. He has never taken an active part in polities, having refused the nomination for mayor three times. He is a prominent member of the Union Club and Knights Templar. June 5, 1877, he married Atta R. Clay of Ogdensburg. He is a son of John and Jane (Snow) McMullen. His father was a native of Ireland and his mother was from Connecticut, and settled in New York State in 1847.
