Sheldon, George A., De Kalb Junction, was born in Brooklyn, December 22, 1860. At the age of five years he removed with his parents to Rutland, Vt., where he lived fourteen years, and learned the tinner's trade. He then spent a year and a half in Gouverneur, and then, on account of ill health, went to Brooklyn for the winter, spending the following summer in Rutland. In October he returned to Gouverneur, but after a stay of only a week he came to De Kalb Junction, and at once took a position with S. T. Walker, October 30, 1882, and worked for him five and a half years. He then entered the employ of M. D. Alvison, and after ten months with that bouse embarked in business for himself; November 1, 1888, he took the stand where he now is. The business at that time was very small, but by excellent work, superior business methods and close attention he has built up a large and constantly increasing trade. He carries a full and complete stock of shelf and heavy hardware, stoves, crockery, paints, glass, etc., besides doing a large tinning business, requiring the services of three skilled workmen. In 1884 Mr. Sheldon married Ida Smith, and they have one daughter, Mabel. He is a staunch Republican.
