Biography of Charles F. Berghorn
Erie County, NY Biographies


Berghorn, Charles F., Newstead, p. o. Akron, druggist, came to America from Germany in 1873 when but fourteen years of age. He spent some time in the Akron school and then engaged in various kinds of work. Later he entered the employ of Hartwell & Standish, druggists, in Lockport, N. Y., where he remained five years, and at the expiration of this period Mr. Berghorn moved to Braddock, Pa., where he bought a drug store and conducted it two years. The place was not to his liking and he sold his stock and interest and returned to New York State, settling in Buffalo, where he took charge of a drug store for a time, and in a short time returned to Akron, where he bought the stock of drugs and groceries of McGoffin & Son, which he carried on successfully for five years. At the end of this time he bought two other drug stores in the village and consolidated the three, which necessitated larger and better equipped quarters, and in 1894 Mr. Berghorn erected a building in the central part of the village, making one of the finest drug stores in Erie county. Mr. Berghorn married Ellen Burnett, and they have two children, Viola and Beatrice.
