CHARLES T. STIVANSON, manager for the Atlantic Refining Company at Kittanning, was born March 29, 1873, in Armstrong county, Pa., son of George Washington Stivanson.

George W. Stivanson, grandfather of Charles T. Stivanson, traced his ancestry back to Peter Stuyvesant, as the name was then spelled, first governor of New York. The latter came of Holland descent. George W. Stivanson was a stonemason by trade, and followed that calling the greater part of his life, residing in Armstrong county.

George Washing Stivanson, father of Charles T. Stivanson, served for more than twenty-three years as a constable in Armstrong county, and for several years was special detective for what is now the Pennsylvania railroad. His family consisted of four children: Charles T., Nannie, Margaret, and Mary (who died young).

Charles T. Stivanson attended the Kittanning public schools, and learned the trade of poster, serving an apprenticeship of five years. For several years thereafter he worked at his trade, but later went to New Cumberland, W. Va., where he was employed for a while. Returning to Kittanning he was engaged at the "Reynolds Hotel" for a time. In 1896 he became identified with the Atlantic Refining Company, rising to his position as special agent or general manager of the Kittanning district, and in his work is justifying the confidence placed in him and his ability.

In 1896 Mr. Stivanson was married to Gertrude E. Walker, daughter of George Walker, of Kittanning. Mr. and Mrs. Stivanson have four children: Edna, Fay, Charles and George W. Mr. Stivanson is a member of the Episcopal Church of the borough.
