HENRY S. MARLOR, BROOKLYN: Banker.

Mr. Marlor was born in England in 1835, and came to this country in 1840 with his parents, settling in New York city. After spending six years in attendance at public school No. 11 in that city, at the age of eleven years he began to learn the trade of gold watch case making with E. L. Preston of Brooklyn, Conn. In 1862 he spent three months in active military service as a member of the Twenty second New York Regiment. Later he entered the Metropolitan National Bank of New York city, remaining in that institution for ten years. He afterward became a member of the New York Stock Exchange, and was elected its vice president. He retired from active business in 1868, but has retained his membership in the Exchange. Since 1869 he has resided chiefly in Brooklyn, Conn., but is accustomed to spend his winters, with his family, in New York city, where he owns and maintains a handsome residence on Lenox Hill, at No. 18 East Seventy eighth Street. He is a gentleman of means and culture, who from humble beginnings has risen by the force of his own exertions to a position which he has a right to enjoy, and of which he may well be proud.

Mr. Marlor is a democrat in politics, a member of the Baptist Church, of the Grand Army of the Republic, and of the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York. His wife's maiden name was Harriet J. Van Brunt, and she is a descendant of one of the old Long Island families.
