JOHN T. SAYERS. For many years John T. Sayers has been numbered among the worthy citizens of Scottdale. He is a son of Charles and Rebecca (Wells) Sayers, who were born and reared in Baltimore county, Maryland. The former was employed as a skilled operator in rolling mills. Both are now deceased.
John T. Sayers came to Scottdale in 1880, and for a number of years was employed as weighmaster by the Everson & Macrum iron works. He then entered the service of the United States Steel Company, with whom he remained three years. He established himself in a mercantile business, in August, 1900, which he has since successfully conducted. He is active in the Baptist church, of which he has been for thirty-four years a member. About eighteen years ago he was ordained a deacon and also holds the office of president of the board of trustees. Mr. Sayers married, June, 1890, Elizabeth Strong. Mr. and Mrs. Savers are without children.
