    Milton Hoag, Vice-President of the Exchange National Bank of SenecaFalls, has been one of th e representative business men of the place fornearly a half-century. A native of Montgomer y County, NY, he was bornJuly 29, 1830. His father, John I. Hoag, who was also a native of N ewYork State, was a lawyer by profession, and died in Canajoharie,Montgomery County, when i n his eighty-fourth year. Nathan Hoag, thegrandfather of our subject, was born in this stat e and was of the Quakerfaith. John I. Hoag married Sarah Combs, who was born in New York, an dwas a descendant of the "Jersey Blues". She died in Montgomery County,near the Palentine Br idge, that spans the Mohawk River. They were theparents of ten children, nine of whom attain ed years of maturity.

    Milton Hoag was the eighth in the family of John I. Hoag. He spent hisboyhood in his nativ e county, assisting in the farm work during thesummer and attending the common schools in th e winter seasons. Hecontinued on the farm until sixteen years old, when he learned thebutche ring business, which he followed for three years. When in hisnineteenth year, he embarked i n the grocery business at Spraker?s Basin,Montgomery County, and carried on the trade success fully about threeyears, when he sold out. In February 1851, he came to Seneca Falls andenter ed the employ of his brother Delavan, who was a member of the firmof Adams & Hoag, rectifier s of whiskey. At the expiration of threeyears, he purchased the business, which he continue d alone, being verysuccessful. In 1866, he sold out to Charles A. Parsons, Cashier of theNat ional Exchange Bank of Seneca Falls, and also one of its heavieststockholders. As part payme nt he took two hundred shares of the stock ofthe bank, amounting to more than $23,000, but so on afterward he increasedhis bank stock to $35,000. The same year he purchased Carr?s Hotel , onthe corner of Fall and State Streets, and after making many changes inits construction, a t an expense of over $8,000, the name was changed toHoag?s Hotel.

    About the same time Mr. Hoag purchased Union Hall and Cuddeback lots. Inthe spring of 1865 h e bought the King estate homestead, No. 21 CayugaStreet, where he now makes his home. In 188 2 he purchased theSpringbrook Stock Farm, two miles north of the village. Four years laterh e bought the three stores on the south side of Fall Street, known as theSheldon Block. A fe w days later he purchased Daniels? Hall, and afterremodeling the opera house at a cost of ove r $14,000, changed the name toDaniels? Opera House. In 1885 he purchased a one-half interes t in Maurer& Carpenter?s drug store, and four years afterward bought out Mr.Carpenter?s inter est.

    In 1877 Mr Hoag took full charge of his hotel. While he never had anyhotel experience, unde r his management the business soon doubled. Hecontinued to run the hotel in this very credit able and satisfactorymanner, both to the public and himself, until 1890, when it was burned t othe ground, as were also his beautiful opera house and drug store. Thiswas the big fire o f July 30, 1890, when many other business places weredestroyed. In 1894, he sold the hotel s ite and on it has been erected abeautiful hotel, The Hoag, which as opened in May, 1895. I t has all themodern improvements and is a great credit to the village.
    In 1884, Mr. Hoag commenced building his present fine residence on theold homestead site, whi ch is one of the most elegant homes in SenecaFalls. It is finished in hardwood of the most e xquisite design, and inpoint of architectural beauty is without a parallel in central New Yor k.The architect was J. M. Elliott, of Auburn, N.Y. Since the great fire hehas devoted much o f his time to breeding and developing high-gradetrotting horses. He has sold several at hig h prices and has a verychoice lot now on hand.

    Mr. Hoag was married to Rosa A. Finnegan, of Seneca Falls, and by thisunion he has two brigh t little daughters, Irene E. and Ethel M. Inpolitics he is a Democrat, but is not very activ e in political affairs.Since 1866 he has been a Director in the National Exchange and Exchang eNational Banks, and for twenty-four years has been Vice-President. Ineverything pertainin g to the material welfare of Seneca Falls he takes anespecial interest, and is ever ready t o do his part in securingmanufacturing and other interests in this place. In a financial wa y hewas eminently successful until the great fire of 1890 and socially he asthe respect and e steem of the best citizens of the village.
