Biography: William Isaac Hoy


William I. Hoy, a large buyer and shipper of stock and a general farmer in Bloom Township, Fairfield County, Ohio, where he owns 130 acres of well improved land, situated

three miles south of Lithopolis, was born in this township in 1860,

and is a son of Peter and Margaret (Carter) Hoy.


The Hoy family came to Fairfield County from Pennsylvania several generations ago,

as early as the great-grandfather's time, and Peter Hoy and his son,

William Hoy, were both born in the house the pioneer grandfather built.


Peter Hoy was a farmer all his life and died at Canal Winchester,

when in his seventy-fifth year. He was married three times; first to Margaret Carter,

and they had  two children; William and Sarah, the latter of whom is deceased.

His second marriage was to Annice Courtright and they were the parents of two children;

Mary, who is deceased, and Margaret, who married Ross Hedges.

Peter Hoy's third marriage was to Clara Hanway.


William Hoy attended the public schools in his youth and engaged in farming

on the old  homestead for some years and then after a trial of several other farms

 in 1894 moved to his present place, where he has 130 acres

and his two daughters have eighty-seven acres. Mr. Hoy has been

careful in his improvements and has erected substantial and attractive buildings.

 In addition to his general farming he is associated

with J. M. Glick in the livestock business and they are among the

largest buyers and shippers in this section.


Mr. Hoy was married first to Miss Sarah Hall, who died some twenty-five years since,

 a daughter of Peter Hall. She was survived by two daughters;

Mary, who is the wife of Noah Beery, of Columbus,

and has one child, Ireta;

and Estella, who is the wife of Walter Bopp, and has one daughter, Marie.


Mr. Hoy was married a second time, to Miss Laura Barnhart, of Fairfield County,

a daughter of George Barnhart, a well known farmer.

Politically, Mr. Hoy is a Democrat, while fraternally he is

a Mason and a Knight of Pythias.
