=============
Charles C. Colby, late president of the Colby Piano Company, Erie, Pa., who died April 8, 1895, was born in Bradford, Vt., and was a son of John and Hannah (Rowel) Colby, his maternal grandmother being a direct descendant of Israel Putnam, of Bunker Hill fame. When Mr. Colby was quite young his father, who was a millwright, removed to Springfield, Pa., where he remained for several years and then went to Albert Lea, Minn. This city was surveyed and laid out by Mr. Colby in 1856; it is now the third city in size and importance in the State. Of the five children which reached maturity Charles C. was the eldest. He was educated in the public schools and academy of Springfield, Pa., early manifesting an interest in matters pertaining to music and musical instruments. When a boy he was a skillfull performer upon the violin. He followed school teaching for several years, the last three years in the mathematical department of the Chicago public schools. He then went to Minnesota, where he engaged in surveying, which he followed for twelve years. Removing to Carthage, Mo., he engaged in the sale of pianos and other musical instruments. He made the trip to Missouri with two wagons that were built to order, one of which carried a piano. He was accompanied by his 8-year-old daughter, Clara E. (now Mrs. W. M. Thoms), who has since become famous as a piano artist. On one side the canvas top of the wagon containing the piano could be withdrawn, exposing the piano, and thus, with Clara at the piano and Mr. Colby playing the violin, they gave concerts wherever they stopped at night. After remaining in Carthage for six years, Mr. Colby took up his residence in Vienna for the purpose of giving his daughter an opportunity of acquiring a classical education in music and the languages, for which she possessed much natural talent. He remained abroad five years, during which time he visited his native country twice, and then returned to New York City, where he engaged in the manufacture of pianos. Mr. Colby made several valuable improvements in pianos, the most important of which was his improved method of stringing. Finding that he could manufacture cheaper in Erie than in New York, he removed his business to Erie in 1888. The present plant covers a space of over three acres of ground and has a capacity of 100 pianos a week. It is one of the largest Institutions of its kind in the world, and is without doubt one of the best organized and equipped. Mr. Colby was the president of the company up to the time of his death, and his son, C. C. Colby, jr., superintendent of the factories; W. J. McCarter, secretary, and J. E. Patterson, treasurer. In addition to the officers, Mr. W. L. Darling, of Corry, Pa., is a director. The salesrooms are located at 1222 State street. In the second story of the building is a conservatory of music which has 350 pupils. The third story is occupied by "Colby Hall," where every season recitals are given by the leading artists of the country. The hall is also used for musical entertainments by the pupils of the conservatory. Mrs. Colby, the wife of C. C. Colby, is quite a noted artist having studied several years at the academy in New York City. She is of French parentage, although born in the United States. She has been an extensive traveler and spent four years in the city of Vienna, Austria. Mr Colby had four children; Clara E. (who married "Mr. William Thoms, publisher and proprietor of the American Art Journal of New York), Charles C. (who married Miss Gertrude Sturgeon, a talented young-pianist of Erie), Margaret (who married Mr. Hayes Russell, of Erie), and Miss Pearl L. Colby (who will graduate from the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor in 1895.).
