In April 1913, he came to Ogden, Boone county, and embarked in the furniture and undertaking business in partnership with A G Howe, who has remained his associate to the preset time. Their stock is extensive and their patronage liberal, for they are widely recognized as merchants and business men of ability and integrity who are well worthy of support.
