GEORGE ZBOYOVSKY, SR.

Banker, was born December 19, 1860 in Austro-Hungary, a son of Michael and Mary Zboyovsky. After attending the schools in his native country he came to America in 1880, locating at Cowen, Pa., where he was employed by the Coxe Coal Company. The mining business, however, did not appeal to him so two years later he went to Passaic, N.J., where he learned the trade of weaver, becoming an expert in that line. Sometime afterwards he came to South Bethlehem where he conducts the American Hotel on East Third Street in addition to the banking business. Mr. Zboyovsky was one of the first Slav settlers in South Bethlehem and secured from the first Burgess, James McMahon the site for the first Slavic Catholic Church, for which he also dug the first spadeful of earth. He is a member of the Cyrillus and Methodius Society which he founded December 1, 1891 the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Holy Name Society. On May 14, 1882, he married Barbara Smaida.
