    • BIOGRAPHY: John Y. Buoy, member of the firm of B. K. Haag & Company, was born in Milton, Northumberland county, Pennsylyania, March 14, 1851, son of James and Eliza (Yearick) Buoy. His father was a cabinet maker by trade, a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and served as steward and treasurer of the same many years. Politically he was a Democrat, and was candidate for sheriff at one time. His wife died in 1854, and he was again married, to Eliza Cronmiller, of Union county. He died in 1861, and his widow in 1885. Seven children were born to the first union, five of whom are living: Sarah, of Olean, New York; Charles W., pastor of Trinity Methodist Episcopal church, Philadelphia; Clara, Mrs. P. L. Hackenberg; James, grocery merchant, and John Y. By the second marriage there was one child, Thomas, of Penfleld, Clearfield county, Pennsylvania.
