Kellogg, George, was born in Clifton Park, January 26, 1850, a son of John C. and Christiana (Fillinger) Kellogg. Their children were Christjohn, George, Charles, who died in infancy, Sylvester, Frank, Alfred and Howard (deceased), all natives of Clifton Park, with the exception of Christjohn. John C. and his wife Christiana came from Germany about 1848 and settled in the town of Clifton Park, and followed farming. He was public spirited and took an interest in the affairs of the town and county, also in schools and education. George Kellogg was educated in the common schools of Clifton Park, and his early life was spent on the farm with his parents. At the age of twelve years he started in life for himself as a farm laborer and since that time has depended on his own resources, and through economy and integrity has accumulated quite a competency and is a strictly self-made man. December 13, 1871, he married Ida A., daughter of John M. and Katherine Kelly, and they have had one daughter, Masie E., wife of Schuyler Davey, and one son, George Marvin (deceased). Christjohn Kellogg enlisted in Co. H, 153d Regiment, in 1862; was first under General Banks and later under General Sheridan and was with Sheridan at the time of his memorable ride. During his entire service he was only confined in a hospital for less than a week on account of a slight wound. He was mustered out at the close of the war and is now a successful farmer at Clifton Park. George Kellogg is a public spirited man and takes an active interest in the Republican party. He has one of the most pleasant homes in the town which is situated on Ballston lake; there are four cottages on his farm, along the lake, owned by Schenectady people. He purchased his farm in 1892.
