His boyhood was spent in Rodman, Great Bend, and Carthage, New York.
He worked on the farm of his father in his youthful days and was

becoming the manager and later part owner.
About 1881 he purchased the entire business there and entered in business
upon his own account. He established branch stores, until he was the owner of
fifteen establishments in the cities of Scranton, West Scranton, Pittston,
Bradford, Carbondale, and Sunbury, Pennsylvania; Auburn, Elmira, Binghamton,
Gloversville, and Glens Falls, New York; Portland, Bangor, and Augusta, Maine;
