Biography of George L. Rouse
Madison County, NY Biographies





Rouse, George L., who died in Cazenovia October 5, 1889, was one of Cazenovia foremost citizens and business men, a member of the old firm of Hobbie & Rouse. For many years he was one of the most prominent men of the village; a trustee for a long period of the seminary to which he gave, not only faithful service as trustee, but material aid in times of need; a member of the board of education for many years; and the representative of this district in the State Legislature for one term. He also held at various times village offices, but in his later years became displeased with the current political methods and refused to accept office of any kind. In his business life he was all that could be desired, and the firm of Hobbie & Rouse attained considerable success and popularity throughout the entire region. He was a faithful citizen, full of public spirit and possessed of qualities which endeared him to all. After his death the trustees of the seminary and the village paid him merited tributes, for his usefulness to both had been great. He was a consistent christian, a member of the Baptist church. Of his union with Jane Corwin three sons were born: H. J. and E. C. Rouse, both in business in Cazenovia, and George H. Rouse, (deceased).
