9 OUR PRESIDENT
MR. GEORGE E. MALTBY, our President, is the
second child of Lucius and Sarah J. Parks Maltby.
He was born February 18th, 1830, in Pair Haven
(now a part of New Haven,) Connecticut. As a boy
Mr. Maltby lived at home, going to school and helping
his father with the farm. Later he became clerk in
Dr. Parker's drug store, being at the time eighteen
years of age.
Three years later Mr. Maltby went into the drug
business for himself. In May, 1852, he married
Elizabeth Broughton Magnire. They had two
children, Edward Parks, and Mary Louise, Maltby,
Shortly after the above children were born the war
broke out and Mr. Maltby disposed of his drug
business and went South where for some time he
supplied General Grant's army with provisions. Mr.
Maltby established an oyster business in Norfolk,
Virginia, and was the first to ship opened oysters in
bulk to New York; for a long time averaging five
hundred gallons a day.
In 1864 Mr. Maltby lost his wife and for seven
years was a widower. In 1871 he married Ruth
Atwater Bostwick, and to them were born Margaret
Atwater, George Erastus and Lucius Upson, Maltby.
In 1878 Mr. Maltby and his family left Virginia
and went to New York to live, where the northern
branch of the oyster business was supervised by him.
Mrs. Maltby died in May, 1898, and soon after Mr.
Maltby gave up active business and now divides his
time between his older daughter, Mrs. Frederick S.
Smith of Chester, Connecticut, and his younger
daughter, Mrs. William M. Bernard of New York

The end of January, nineteen hundred and nine
marks the completion of the third year of life for the
Maltby Association, and as we look back upon our
beginning with its doubts and fears, its struggles and
trials, then glance at our present membership roll,
should we not all feel just a bit pleased with the
result of our labors?
In view of the increased membership it seems not
unfitting that a few words should appear in Booklet
Two which would give members, especially the new
members, some slight idea of our history and our
work; how we came to exist, and so on.
In February, nineteen hundred and six, two or
three of the Maltby cousins were brought to face
with these questions--Who was going to care for the
tombstones of the early ancestors? Who- was going
to preserve the family records? What was to become
of the few old relics and Maltby homesteads? Were
no photographs to be taken, that these might be pre-
served to posterity? and many similar queries. The
result of all this was that those few undertook to
interest other cousins, and to form a Maltby Associa-
tion--bound together through the tie of blood, to
accomplish these several things.
There were twenty-seven orginal members--all
joining during February and March of 1906.
