Sabin, George G., M. D.- This eminently successful physician and surgeon was born in Ontario, Wayne county, N. Y., November 28, 1838. His education was obtained at the Palmyra Union School and the Macedon Academy. In 1861 when the call to arms was heard he 'was among the first to answer the summons and enlisted in Co. D, 6th Ohio Vols., and served for three years and after two months at home he re-enlisted in the 0th N. Y. Heavy Artillery, serving with that regiment for one year. He returned to Wayne county and entered the office of his uncle, Dr. Samuel A. Sabin, as a student, where he remained for one year, when he entered the University of Michigan (medical department) and received the degree of M. D. in 1868. He immediately began the practice of his profession at Denmark, Lewis county, N. Y., and in 1894 removed to Watertown, where he has since been engaged in the practice of his profession. Dr. Sabin served eight years as health officer of the town of Rutland and was the president of the Jefferson County Medical Society in 1885 and has been its censor since 1870, with the exception of 1884 and 1885, when he was vicepresident and president.
