GEORGE HAMILTON BOYD, residing in Sharon, Pennsylvania, is a
native of Ohio, born at Elyria, in 1858. He received a liberal
education and early in life became associated with the iron industry at
Cleveland, Ohio, to which city he went when a young man.
Boyd remained at Cleveland up to 1892, when the manufacturing plant of
the company with which he was connected was destroyed by fire. The
company, known as the Thomas D. West Foundry Company, re moved to
Sharpsville, Pennsylvania, in 1892, and built its present extensive
plant, numbered among the most important concerns of the famous
Shenango valley. Of this company Mr. Boyd is the president and
treasurer. He is a thoroughly reliable and progressive businessman, who
has achieved success as an extensive manufacturer.
In 1908 his
present spacious and modern residence was erected, the same being one
of the finest properties within Sharon, the place noted for many
beautiful homes. This house is situated at No. 507 East State street,
in a charming location, with attractive scenery in the distance.
Politically, Mr. Boyd is a supporter of the Republican party.
