    Harry J. Guy, M. D. Since his arrival at Covington in 1918, Dr. Harry J. Guy has been engaged in a large and representative medical practice and added to the reputation which he established at Dayton as a skilled and thoroughly learned practitioner. He was born at Bellefontaine, January 8, 1871, a son of Charles and Elizabeth Guy, and a grandson of a pioneer of the Miami valley who met his death in a runaway accident. Charles Guy was born and reared on the plains of Madison county, Ohio, and at the outbreak of the Civil war enlisted in the Union Army, with which he served in an Ohio volunteer infantry regiment during the entire period of the struggle. Subsequently he became a building contractor, a business which he followed for many years at Bellefontaine, where his death occurred. He and his wife were the parents of three children: William, who is engaged in the wall paper business at Bellefontaine; Mary, the wife of Harry Hofstetter, of Indianapolis, Ind.; and Dr. Harry J. Harry J. Guy attended the primary and high schools at Bellefontaine and the Chicago Homeopathic Medical College at Chicago, Ill., from which he was graduated with the class of 1896, receiving the degree of Doctor of Medicine. At that time he returned to Bellefontaine, where he embarked in practice and in 1899 went to Dayton, which was the scene of his professional activities for a period of nineteen years. In 1918 he took up his residence and opened an office at Covington, where he has since built up a large and lucrative practice and become known as one of the leading members of his profession here. During the war period he joined the volunteer medical corps, in addition to which he was a liberal contributor to war activities. He is a valued member of the Knights of Pythias and, the Sons of Veterans, and in the latter has been a surgeon in the Ohio division for the past fifteen years. Doctor Guy married Sadie, daughter of Elijah and Sarah Brownell, Mr. Brownell having been the manufacturer of the first steam boiler in Ohio and the founder of the Brownell Engine and Boiler Works. Two children have been born to Doctor and Mrs. Guy: Margaret Elizabeth, who graduated from high school in 1916 with the highest honors of her class and is now attending Ohio State University; and Sherman, who died when about four years of age. Doctor Guy has a number of civic and professional connections, and he and his wife are very popular at Covington, where they have established numerous friendships.
