Biography of George Beal
Madison County, NY Biographies





Beal, George, p. o. Hamilton, the popular postmaster of Hamilton, N. Y.,was born in this village and received his education in the local schools. He learned the trade of cabinet maker and pursued that vocation for seven years, when he became a member of the firm of Bartle & Beal, bakers, which existed for ten years, doing a large business until forced out by the syndicate. Mr. Beal then entered the partnership of Rowlands & Beal, furniture dealers and undertakers, which firm still exists. In 1894 Mr. Beth was appointed postmaster at Hamilton by President Cleveland, and his conduct of the office has been highly acceptable to both political elements. He has given his whole attention to the duties of his office and it is worthy of note that when the great fire of 1895 destroyed Hamilton, the post office building also being burned, the public of Hamilton got their mail just as before with the slight exception that only one mail was delayed a few minutes. Mr. Beal has been a member of the board of education fourteen years and has also served as loan commissioner. He marriedElisa Agnes Wahu of Preston, Onto., September 5, 1876; they have two sons, Frederick W., and George M. Mr. Beal is a prominent Mason and is justly regarded as one of the representative citizens of the county.
