His parents dying when he was but a boy, he was practically reared by an uncle and an aunt, but at the early age of ten years was obliged to seek employment. Being of an ambitious disposition, in 1870, he came to the United States, landing in the city of New York. Thence he went to Syracuse, N.

In February, 1882, he located in Portsmouth, of which city he has since been a resident. In the Eldredge Brewery he has twenty-five employes under his direction. He understands the brewing business in all its branches and has shown himself to be a thoroughly capable superintendent.
