Eddy, George B., was born in the town of Morean, Saratoga county, August 18, 1853, a son of David H. and Anna J. Eddy, and lived on the farm until twenty-two years of age. After leaving the farm he went west and spent two years in Iowa, in the live stock exchange, and returning east spent two years in Schuylerville in the lumber and coal business with Sydney Seeley. In 1883 he came to Saratoga Springs and established his present business, bakery and confectionery, wholesale and retail, which is the leading one in its line in Saratoga county. On October 13, 1874, Mr. Eddy married Anna Buckbee, daughter of Mahlon Buckbee of Morean, and their living children are Franklin G., Bertha A. and George B., jr.. Franklin G. Eddy is superintendent of the confectionery manufacturing department of the business. The Eddy family is not only an old one in America, but is traceable back to the year 1500 in England. One of Mr. Eddy's ancestors, in the seventh generation back, was vicar of Cranebrook, England, fifty years, from 1580 to 1630. His sons Samuel and John with their sister Abigail, came to America in the ship Handmaid in 1630, Samuel settling in Massachusetts and became the progenitor of this branch of the Eddy family.
