   H. H. Hoyt (Harry), son of Elmon and Elizabeth Hoyt, was born October 22, 1860, at North Fairfield, of this county. His boyhood was passed upon the farm and in attendance of the public schools. After clerking for a general store at North Fairfield for one year he was given the management of it and for six years successfully conducted same. In 1883 he and his father became owners of the stock, and erected, in the same year, a  large brick building where Mr. Hoyt established perhaps the best country store in Ohio (See  Hoyt Market ). In 1887 he removed to Norwalk, engaging in the dry goods business. In 1893, he with Mr. C.F. Jackson, purchased the lot upon which the old Methodist Church stood for many years, and erected the large building known as the Glass Block. In his ventures Mr. Hoyt has displayed excellent judgement and as a gentleman and business man he is highly esteemed.
