Hoyt, George H., was born near Dexter, Me., in the town of Ripley, September 6, 1825, a son of George W. Hoyt, who was a native of Bradford, N. H. George H. was educated in the common schools of Bradford and at the Francistown Academy. His parents died when he was three years of age, and he journeyed through Maine into New Hampshire, a distance of 250 miles and resided with his grandfather on the farm until reaching his majority. After various experiences he came in 1850 to Newark, Wayne county, and in 1854 returned to Concord, N. H. That year he married Mary H., daughter of Jonathan Scribner, of Salisbury, N. H., and they have had three children: George H., jr., Carrie, now Mrs. Green; and Lillie, now Mrs. Barnard, of Baltimore, Md. In 1857 Mr. Hoyt came with his wife to Clyde, where he engaged in the grocery business, continuing up to 1861, when he entered the employ of William C. Ely at the glass works, being soon after appointed agent for Dr. Linus Ely in the same business. Dr. Ely was succeeded by Orrin Southwick, and in 1868 Mr, Hoyt became a partner in the firm of Southwick, Reed & Co., they being succeeded by Ely, Reed & Co., which firm continued up to the time of the death of William C. Ely in 1886. The firm was then reorganized and continued under the style of William C. Ely's Sons & Hoyt, manufacturers of fruit jars and glass bottles. Our subject is recognized as one of the conservative men of his town, and has always been identified in advancing its best interests. He is a trustee of the M. E. church of Clyde.
