GEORGE S. MOTT
George S. Mott, the postmaster of Telluride, became a resident of San Miguel county in 1890 and of Colorado in 1884, and since that time has been diligent and serviceable in helping to build up and develop this portion of the county. He was born in the state of New York in 1857, and is the son of D. D. and Elmira (Sylvester) Mott, of that state. He was reared and educated in his native place, and after leaving school engaged in the grocery business there until 1881, when he moved to Chicago where he again turned his attention to merchandising. Three years later he settled at Montrose, this state, and carried on a business in general merchandising until 1890. He then moved to Telluride and was employed as state agent until the railroad was completed through this part of the state. At the same time he conducted on of the leading groceries of the section, continuing his operations in the line until 1898, when he was appointed postmaster. He was re-appointed to this office in 1901, and is now filling it capably and to the general satisfaction of the people, and is recognized as one of the representative and progressive men of the portion of the state in which he lives. He is a prominent member of the Knights of Pythias and the Woodmen of the World, and to the affairs of his lodges gives a close, intelligent and serviceable attention. At Lake City, Colorado, in 1887, he was married to Miss Mary Kirker, a native of Ohio. They have two sons, George C. and Thomas. Popular in all sections of the county, and fervently patriotic wherever the welfare of his people is involved, and, moreover, approaching every public question and every public and private duty with breadth of view and a lofty ideal of citizenship he will deserves the esteem in which he is held, and uses wisely and for good the strong influence he undoubtedly wields, being considered one of the leading citizens of his community.
