WILLIAM WILLIAMS circa 1870’s – 1905
In Huntingdon as early as 1870 [census]. Still a marble cutter as late as 1905-06 [Directory]. Still listed in 1911 Directory, but without an occupation and at slightly different address – 407 4th St. instead of corner of 4th & Mifflin. Williams born in Pennsylvania.
GREEN & BEAVER circa 1865 – 1900
James Green, marble cutter, in 1860 census of Huntingdon. F.O. Beaver in 1870 census of Huntingdon. Green & Beaver in 1876 and 1888 Huntingdon Directory, located at 513 Mifflin. F.O. Beaver & Son [George] in 1903 Directory. Green born in Pennsylvania; Beaver in Germany.
Date of 1855 for beginning of Green & Beaver, given in Beaver’s business biography in Second Century, is wrong. According to 1900 census, F.O. Beaver immigrated to U.S. in 1860. This information would have been provided by him to the census-taker. 1855 could be accurate date for beginning of Green’s business.
