Biography of the Billeb Brothers of Buffalo, NY

NAVAGATION





Billeb Bros., Buffalo.-These are both natives of Buffalo, N. Y. Ernest H. Billeb. jr., was born December 11, 1863, and received his education in the public and parochial schools and at Bryant & Stratton's Business College. In September, 1889, he married Ellen, daughter of Michael Lundrigan of Buffalo. Edward W. BilIeb was born March 29, 1868. After completing his education he was employed in his father's store until 1892, when the firm of Billeb Brothers succeeded Ernest H. Billeb, Sr., who had established the business in 1860. This is one of the largest and most successful retail grocery houses in the city of Buffalo, and the fact that it has been so long established, together with the efficient management of the Messrs. Billeb, has brought it an immense trade. Besides a full line of groceries the firm handles large quantities of hay and feed. Both members meet all the requirements of successful retailers, being liberal and just in their dealings, and possessed of personal qualifications which make them popular.
