b. October 4, 1863, d. May 9, 1910, 46 years. Sec. 2-10. He was President of the State Savings Bank of Rochester which was located in the Masonic Building at the northeast corner of Fourth and Main. He served on the village council. As a man of means, he owned two farms and lived in a large frame house in Rochester which is now the Potere-Modetz Funeral Home. His son William filled tank cars with water from public mains, sent the cars to Wyandotte for bottling, and then sold the popular "Rochester Pure Spring Water." Perhaps the iron in the water was salubrious to purchasers.
