The ancestor of the present Troy family of Inwood was Robert Inwood, of England, the land of his birth. He learned the baker's trade in his native land, and after his location in Troy established the bakery business in that city, later owned and operated by his, son, George John Inwood. He retained the business, however, until his death. He was very successful in business and accumulated considerable property by industry and close attention to business. He took no active part in public affairs, and was much respected for his upright life and business rectitude. He married Margaret McDonnell, a native of Ireland. Children:

  1. George John, (see forward).
  2. An infant, deceased.
  3. Robert, died in Troy, at age of twenty years.
  4. Charles, died in Troy at age of seventeen years.
  5. Margaret, married John H. Gleason.

(II) George John, eldest son of Robert and Margaret Inwood, was born in Troy, New York, January, 1850, where he died in 1894. He received his education in the schools of Troy, and after his school days were over entered the bakery of his father and learned the trade in all its detail. Advancing years caused the father to withdraw more and more from the cares of business, until the entire management devolved upon the son. After the death of Robert Inwood the business was entirely in the hands of his son George J., who successfully conducted it for the next fifteen years, when he retired with a competency. During his active business life he had secured several parcels of valuable real estate in the city, some of which he had improved. To this he gave his attention after retirement, until his death in 1894. He married Catharine, born in Canada, daughter of James and Sarah (O'Hara) Gillan. Children; both born in Troy:

  1. Robert, deceased in childhood, and
  2. George Victor, who died in Troy, just entering into manhood, aged sixteen years.

Mrs. Inwood, who survives her husband and children, resides in Troy.
