Ryan, Peter Joseph, grocer, is the son of Patrick and Margaret (Roach) Ryan, who came from Ireland to Quebec, Canada, and died there, the former in 1875 and the latter in 1868. Mr. Ryan was born in Quebec on the 27th of June, 1868, spent his early life on his father's farm, and was educated in that city. In 1883 he came to New Bedford and entered the art establishment of Charles Taber & Co. Afterward he was for six years a clerk in the wholesale and retail grocery store of C. S. & B. Cummings. In 1893 he formed a copartnership with George H. Chadwick and engaged in the grocery business at the corner of Union and Sixth streets. Two years later this firm was dissolved and Mr. Ryan, in company with Edward E. Baker and Lewis C. Small, established a grocery store on County street, corner of Smith, which he has conducted alone since 1896, when Messrs. Baker and Small withdrew. Mr. Ryan is a member of the Board of Trade, the Plymouth Club and the Knights of Columbus.
