This gentleman, who is Secretary of the Fredericksburg Brewing Company,
with which he has been connected for the past ten years, was born in
Philadelphia in 1856. He there attended the public schools,
graduating at the High School in 1871. Immediately afterward he
came to California, and accepted the position of bookkeeper, and later
became a commercial traveler. In 1882 he was married to Miss Emma
Haney, daughter of W. W. Haney, of San Francisco. For six years
he was interested in general merchandising and contracting in Walla
Walla, Washington Territory which he abandoned to accept the position
he now holds with the Fredericksburg Brewing Company. He owns
forty acres of choice land on the Stevens Creek road, about five miles
from San Jose, which he purchased in the month of May, 1877, and in the
winters of 1877-78 and 1878-79 he had it planted exclusively to
prunes. As yet he has no buildings upon the place. This
gentleman is a member of the Knights of Pythias, San Jose Lodge, No.
125, of which he is at present Chancellor Commander.
