THE STORY OF THEIR SUCCESS.
Charles J. Heyler
of our best known and most energetic young business men is Charles J.
Heylor, born at Hamilton, Ohio, December 7, 1856. Completing his
education in the public schools of his native State he came to
California in 1877, in search of health, and found that which he was
looking for. Mr. Heyler conducted a boot and shoe business in the store
now occupied by the Arcade for eight years, at the same time operating
a branch store at Santa Cruz. During the temporary boom experienced in
San Jose in 1887, Mr. Heyler disposed of his shoe business, with the
intention of returning to the East, but the prospects in the real
estate business being so attractive, he concluded to stop in this city
a while longer, and opened an office at 25 East Santa Clara street,
where he has thrived and prospered.
In December 1890, Mr. Heyler
was married to Miss Carrie Hayes, the daughter of a well-known druggist
of Woodland, California. A picture of their charming cottage appears in
the bird's eye view of San Jose, given as a souvenir with this number.
Mr. Heyler's various properties are located in Santa Cruz, Monterey,
Tulare, Glenn, and Santa Clara counties. He has large property
interests in Santa Clara county, and is an extensive stockholder in the
Western Granite and Marble Company.
