Dr. Henry William Stoy    

Dr. Henry William Stoy was born in Lebanon, Pa., Sept. 7, 1784. He was the son of Dr. Henry Wilhelm Stoy, a native of Germany, who emigrated thence to Lebanon County, Pa., some years previous to the birth of his son. There he practiced medicine and officiated as minister of the gospel for a considerable time. Dr. Stoy was educated in Lancaster, Pa., and studied medicine with Prof. Baker, of Lancaster. He came to Bridgeport in 1817, where he engaged in the practice of his profession, remaining until 1822, at which time he went to Greensburg, Westmoreland Co., but in 1832 returned to Bridgeport, where he continued to follow his profession until 1852, when he removed to Shinston, Harrison Co., Va., and died there Feb. 2, 1858. He continued in active practice up to within three months of his death. Dr. Stoy was twice married,—in 1814 to Katharine E. Cook, who died in 1824, leaving five children; in 1826 he was married to Eleanor M. Watt, who died in 1852, leaving also five children. While in Bridgeport he enjoyed the esteem and confidence of the community, and maintained an extensive practice. In polities he was an ardent and enthusiastic Democrat; he was also an active member of the order of Freemasons for fifty years preceding his death. His surviving descendants are Capt. William H. Stoy, the well-known professor of music; Mrs. Dorothy A. Kimber, of Oil City, Pa., and Mrs. Charlotte Reese, of Pittsburgh, Pa.
