Biography of Charles G. Wilcox
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Wilcox, Charles G., hatter, furnisher, and clothier at No. 43 Church street, is the younger son of the late John E. Wilcox, a lifelong resident of the town of Hoosick, who was among the first employees of Walter A. Wood. He held prominent positions with this firm many years, and was also a central figure in the local affairs of Hoosick Falls at the time of its incorporation, being one of its most valued citizens in both political and business circles. His sudden death in 1894 was a severe blow to his family and to his fellow citizens, by whom he was held in the highest esteem. Charles was educated here, where he was born in 1868, and first engaged in journalism, corresponding for the " Observer," "Press" and other papers. He engaged in his present business in 1891, with M. D. Kincaid under the firm name of Kincaid & Wilcox. He succeeded Mr. Kincaid in the business in February, 1896. He is a member of the Hoosick Club, and an honorary member of the Citizens Corps, and has served a term as trustee of the village. He married Mary L., daughter of Thomas A. Hutchins, of Bennington. Mrs. Wilcox is a noted contralto singer and has sung in the churches of Albany, Troy, and North Adams, as well as her birthplace, Bennington, and has by her talent added to the popularity of her husband.
