    • 1881-"History of Stark County, Ohio", edited by, William Henry Perrin, page 745, "City of Alliance,"--George W. Sourbeck, restaurant
      keeper; Alliance; was born in Bridgeport, Cumberland Co., PA, Feb. 26, 1837. He is the oldest son of John Sourbeck, by his second wife (Sarah A. Collier). The subject of these notes was only 7 years old (really 10 yrs old) at the time his father drowned (which event is noted in the sketch of Daniel Sourbeck), therefore he was early in life necessitated to do for himself, and began his career as driver on the canal from Harrisburg to Nanticoke and Wilkesbarre. This he followed one season, when he went to Mechanicsburg and apprenticed himself in the boot and shoe trade, and remained there six years. In 1855, he came to Alliance, and was engaged in his brother's dining hall at the railroad depot, for about one and a half years. He went to Youngstown and engaged at his trade for a short time when he accepted a clerkship in the Union Hotel, where he remained for two years. He purchased the passenger dining-rooms on Liberty street, Pittsburgh, which he conducted about a year, sold out and returned to Youngstown, Ohio, and Jan. 3, 1861, he married Mary A. Wilson. They moved to Allegheny City (Pittsburgh), PA, where he began to "run" on the Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne, & Chicago Railroad, and soon was promoted to a conductorship on the road, which position he retained seven years, when he was appointed Night-train Dispatcher at the outer depot for one year, and then returned to his position as conductor, and "ran" one year when he resigned to engage in the hotel business in Alliance, having been running the Exchange Hotel about ten months, when, on May 22, 1871, it burned. He then opened the restaurant close to the depot, which he has conducted ever since with much success. They have five children, viz.---Alva L., Emma S., Harry P., George W. Jr., and Lillie C."
