Biography of Mrs. Douglas Boyd
Rensselaer County, New York Biographies





Boyd, Mrs. Douglas. - In 1895 at Sacandaga Park, Fulton county, N. Y., death came to one of Hoosick Falls most respected citizens, Douglas Boyd. A pulmonary difficulty compelled him to retire from his position as superintendent of the shirt factory here in 1893. Thinking to improve his health he traveled much in California and elsewhere but to no avail. So passed away a man, as a Christian, sincere, consistent, being a valued member of the Presbyterian., church, as an employer none more considerate and beloved. He left a widow, born Abbie Barringer, and one son, Roy, nine years of age. Douglas Boyd was born at Hudson, N. Y., in 1853 of Scotch parentage, inheriting the sturdy characteristics of that people. At an early age he received employment in the Miller, Hall & Hartwell large shirt factory, Troy, N. Y. During his six years there his employers discovered his rare ability. As their appreciation of his work they sent him to Hoosick Falls in 1883 to manage the branch of the factory there, where he earned the esteem and gratitude of his employers and love of employees, of whom there were about 200.
