"George Bortz was born in Ellsworth, Mahoning county, Ohio, May 31, 1827. November 18, 1847, he was married to Miss Elizabeth Christy, born in Mercer county, Pennsylvania, in 1828. They had six children, as follow: Mary, wife of J.S. Pollock, of Youngstown; Edward, who died at the age of sixteen; Charles A., superintendent of Youngstown rolling mills; California, William and George C. In the spring of 1848 Mr. Bortz purchased a farm in Berlin township, and resided there until the death of his father in 1852, when he moved onto the home place. He was in California some three years engaged in mining. In the fall of 1861 he returned to Youngstown, and engaged in draying for three years, the first to engage in that business. He is now engaged in farming."
