Kurtzmann, Charles F., Buffalo, son of Christian and Rosa Kurtzmann, was born in Buffalo, N. Y., May 26, 1852. He is without doubt one of the leading authorities on pianos and piano making in the city and being a thoroughly practical piano maker his knowledge in minute details of construction is exceedingly valuable. He has had the advantage of being educated in the manufacture of pianos since the age of eleven years, under the instruction of his father, Christian Kurtzmann, whose name is known all over the United States as one of the pioneer piano makers in America. in 1888 Mr. Kurtzmann engaged in the piano and music business on his own account, locating on North Division street. The growth of his business necessitated his removal in May, 1894, to his present large warerooms at 879 Main street. Here he conducts a large trade and is recognized as one of the leading and best informed dealers in Buffalo. He is a member of the Buffalo Saengerbund, the Buffalo Orpheus, the Buffalo Turn Verein, the Buffalo Zither Club, and Knights of Pythias. In September, 1874, he was married to Miss Sophia Louisa Funke, who died in 1889. In September, 1890, he was again married to Sophia, daughter of Frederick and Sophia Glanz of Buffalo.
