George D. Kelly    

GEORGE D. KELLY of Pierce, Kelly & Co., iron manufacturers was born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1843. His parents are Moses and Jane M. (Howe) Kelly. His father was a native of Livingston County, N.Y., and his mother of New Haven, Conn. Our subject received his education in the select schools of Cleveland, Ohio. At the age of seventeen he was employed as a clerk by the Cuyahoga Furnace Co., of Cleveland, where he remained for two years. He then entered the employ of the late Gen. James Pierce, at the Sharpsville Furnace as a clerk, remaining in that capacity until 1870, when he entered into co-partnership with James, Jonas J. and Wallace Pierce as manufacturers of iron at the Douglas Furnace. He was united in marriage, in 1870, to Miss Kate, daughter of Calvin C. Wick, of Ashton, Ohio, and by this marriage they have four living children: Clark M., George W., Douglas and Catherine. Mr. Kelly has been identified with the public offices of Sharpsville, filling the office of burgess in 1880-81, also as a member of the council for a number of years. In politics he is independent, but of Republican proclivities.
