Charles W Hoyt




Charles W. Hoyt





CHARLES W. HOYT, physician and surgeon, was born June 11, 1839, in Chautauqua County, N. Y., and is a son of Joseph and Sarah (Boyce) Hoyt, of that county. The Hoyts were among the first settlers of Massachusetts, being there as early as 1620, from which time they trace their genealogy. The ancestors of this branch removed from Amesburg, Mass., to New Hampshire, where the father of our subject was born March 9, 1809. In early manhood he removed to Chautauqua County, N. Y., where he has since resided. Charles W. received his education in his native town, in the high-school, and subsequently attended Allegheny College, Meadville, Penn. He began the study of medicine in 1866, under the instruction of Drs. Glidden and Rice, of Panama, N. Y., receiving his degree from Cleveland Homoeopathic Hospital College in 1870. Dr. Hoyt began the practice of his chosen profession at Panama, N. Y., removing to Sharon, Penn., in 1870, where he has since been engaged in active practice. He was the first announced homoeopathic physician in the county, has built up a large and lucrative practice, and is recognized as one of the leading physicians of the Shenango Valley. He was married in 1861 to Miss Emeline Polley, of Panama, N. Y., of which union four children survive: Frank H. (a practicing physician associated with his father), Emma, Josephine and Myrtle. Dr. Hoyt went into the army in 1862, as lieutenant in Company F, One Hundred and Twelfth New York Volunteers, serving six months. He is a Republican, and one of the best known and most popular physicians of Mercer County.
