George Henry COLBY was born on 27 DEC 1844 in Colebrook, Coos County, New Hampshire. He appeared in the census in 1850 in Colebrook, Coos County, New Hampshire. (living at home with father and mother) He appeared in the census in 1880 in Lancaster, Coos County, New Hampshire. (living at home with mother)
He received his education at the Colebrook and Lancaster academies, and learned the art of printing in the office of "The Coos Republican", at Lancaster, and later with the Riverside Press, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Prior to going to Cambridge he had served one year as postal clerk in the store of Royal Joyslin, and three years with E. & T. Fairbanks & Company, at St. Johnsbury, Vermont; had failed in an attempt to establish himself in the book trade in Lancaster; and had read law for one year in the office of Ossian Ray, of Lancaster. He established "The Fairfield Chronicle" in May, 1869, a weekly newspaper published in Fairfield, Somerset County, Maine, which he managed as editor and sole proprietor for a period of ten years, and then disposed of it to a syndicate of Fairfield citizens. He then returned to Lancaster, and in the summer and fall of 1879 visited Europe, traveling extensively, and upon his return devoted six months to travel in the United States. He assumed charge of the mechanical department of three newspapers in July, 1880, owned by Thomas G. Thrumm, in Honolulu, Hawaiian Islands. One of these papers was "The Press", a weekly newspaper of considerable influence among the business residents and planters, and which was founded for the purpose of advocating the annexation of the islands to the United States. When this object had been attained the paper suspended. "The Kukoa" was published in Kanaka, the native language of the islanders, and had a circulation of five thousand weekly. It exceeded a great influence among the native population. "The Friend" was a monthly missionary journal, edited and owned by Father Damon. After nearly two years devoted to the newspaper and job printing business at Honolulu, Mr. Colby ascended the volcano of Kilauca, and traveled about the islands. He then visited Australia, and returning east in May, 1883, opened a book store in Lancaster, where he has been prosperously located for almost twenty-five years, thus making a splendid contrast to his failure in this direction in his earlier years. During this time he has made a trip to the island of Jamaica; spent a winter in Mexico; three time visited Europe; in 1906 traveled to Japan as the invited guest of Hon. H. W. Denison, the legal adviser of the Japan Foreign Office, and in that land spent a month in continuous travel. He returned in 1907, on his way visiting Siam, China, India and the Mediterranean, spending some time at Naples and not omitting to visit Pompeii and Rome, thence home by Gibraltar and the Azores. Upon his return he delivered free lectures, by invitation, to about twenty audiences in the various towns of Coos and Grafton counties. Mr. Colby is a notable man of business, and carries about fifty thousand volumes in his stock, which is the largest number carried by any house of this kind in the state. He has been an intelligent observer during his travels, is an interesting writer, a lover of books, modest and unassuming in his manner, liberal in his views and tenacious of his convictions. He is a firm believer in public libraries and schools, and has done much to further the interests of these institutions. His religious views are those of the late Robert G. Ingersoll; he is an advocate of women's rights; and is a believer in cremation after death. He has been a lifelong Republican, of the Abolition type, but has never sought nor held public office. He is a member of Fairfield Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons, and of the Royal Arch Chapter of Oakland, Maine.
