ISAAC COBLENTZ, hardware and stoves, Springfield. Isaac Coblentz, the energetic and well known hardware merchant, was born in Maryland in 1819; came to Ohio in 1835, when quite a youth, and settled in Springfield in 1866, since which time he has done a thriving business, being a man of great energy and sterling integrity. He married in 1844, and has now a family of four interesting children - one boy of 15 (now at Wittenberg College), and two married daughters, one of whom, Mrs. Rev. D. R. Hanna, is widowed. Mr. Coblentz has been in active mercantile life for more than a quarter of a century; he did a drug business from 1866 to 1872, at the stand now occupied by Troupe & Jacobs, corner of Market and Main, and in 1872 changed to hardware, occupying his present store and doing the leading business in stoves, of which he makes rather a specialty, as also of roofing, having just completed the contract for roofing the new opera house. Mr. Coblentz is a Freemason, being a worthy member of Clark Lodge, No. 101; he is a main of dignified bearing, courteous to all, prompt in fulfilling his engagements; and straightforward in his dealings; has been a member of the City Council for two years.
