Colonial Trust Company of South Sharon [Farrell],
Pennsylvania, was chartered in April, 1902, with a paid-up capital of
$125,000, and has four departments—commercial banking, savings, trust
and foreign exchange. Its officers are: John
Stevenson, Jr., the widely known iron manufacturer, president; James
C. Chaplin, vice president; F. I. McGill,
secretary and treasurer; and J. G. Marshall,
assistant secretary and treasurer. The company owns its own building,
handsome and the most complete of any banking house in Mercer county.
Its burglar proof safe within a heavily lined chrome steel vault and
over all of which is the latest and best electrical alarm system, offers
protection to the extreme limit. Its success in the past is a sufficient
guarantee of the future.
