George MAHOY

1913 AW Bowen History Montgomery County, Indiana p 978

We are glad to write of a man who has lived for something more than the mere boarding of dollars, although it would seem that necessity makes this the first requirement, but in supplying our natural wants it is not necessary to neglect all other of life's good things such as helping one's neighbors, cultivating the mind, making better the moral and spiritual attributes and, in short, living as the Creator intended for us to live. One of the highly respected families of Montogmery County, whose members have tried to do their full duty in the affairs of the locality since they came here in the pioneer epoch is the MAHOY family, who are certainly deserving of our attention at this time, one of the best known of the present generation being George Mahoy, successful farmer of Sugar Creek Twp whose name forms the caption of this sketch. Mr. Mahoy was b. in this twp. and co. April 5, 1856, and here he has been content to spent his life. He is a son of George and Lydia (DAUGHERTY) Mahoy. These parents were both born in the state of Ohio, the father in 1820. There they grew to maturity, received meager educations, and were married, and they spent their lives engaged in farming, coming to Montgomery Co. in an early day and establishing the permanent home of the family in Sugar Creek Twp. The death of the father occurred on APril 5, 1875. They were the parents of 12 children, six of whom are living: Mrs. Margaret HULVEY, Mrs. Alice COOK, Mrs. Vena GRAY, Mrs. Iva BOOTS, Joe and George of this review. Mr. M. was marr. Aug 22, 1889, to Margaret BAER, who was b. Feb 28, 1860 in Tippecanoe Co In. She is a daughter of Joseph and Ada (SUMMERS) Baer. The father' s death occurred in 1884. The mother was b. Jan. 1, 1830 and d. in 1904. Mrs. M. grew to womanhood in the native community and received her educ. in the common schools. 5 ch. have been b. to Mr. & Mrs. Mahoy, namedly: Willard b. Feb 1, 1890 is at home; Harry O b. Dec 14, 1891, d. March 18, 1894; Zola F, b. Dec 20, 1894 is at home; Mary F b. June 30, 1897 is attending school; Haven b. Aug 11, 1901 is also attending school. Mr. Mahoy has alwyas followed farming, moving on his present place in thespring of 1901, prior to that he had lived for 2 years on a farm near Garfield, In and before that in Tippecanoe Co. He is the owner of 80 acres, all tillable well fenced and well tiled and otherwise properly improved, and he carries on general farming and breeding, keeping an excellent grade of live stock and no small part of his annual income is derived form this source. He understands well the care and handling of stock and takes a delight in this kind of work, and his fine stock is much admired by all. He has a good home, which he built himself. Politically, Mr. M. is a Republican; fraternally, a member of the Knights of Pythias at Darlington and a member of the Potato Creek Methodist Episcopal church, being a trustee of the same.
