He came to America with his parents in 1852, at the age of three years, and was reared on his father's farm in the town of Wilson, Sheboygan County, Wis., until 1864, when the family moved to the city of Sheboygan. He received a common school education, and learned the trade of carpenter and joiner. For eighteen years he was engaged in contracting and building, and for many years was associated with his brother Charles in contracting in ice. He retired from the latter business in 1891, and has been dealing in wines and liquors since.
