Bly, William B., a prominent contractor and business man of Fairport, was born in Sand Lake, July 12, 1833. Joseph, his father, was a millwright and lumberman of that place, and at various times a town official, having been commissioner of highways, justice of the peace, etc. W. B. Bly first engaged in the lumber business, afterwards farming for a time, and in 1867 came to Fairport and bought an interest in the planing mill. In 1855 he married Sarilla Vary, who died in 1870, leaving two children, a daughter, Eva, who married Harvard Speer and lives in Washington, and a son, Will I., who is traveling salesman in the Western States. After his wife's death Mr. Bly spent two years in California, returning to Fairport in 1872, and has since given his whole attention to building. Besides many residences, he erected in 1890 the handsome Bown Block on Main street, and in 1892 rebuilt the De Land Chemical Works. Mr. Bly is prominent in church and society, an exponent of Prohibition, has been trustee of the village, and in every way is identified with its best interests. In 1872 he married Mrs. Emma A. Hill of Fairport.
