Erie County, NY Biographies


Kurtzmann, Louis S., Buffalo, son of Christian and Rosalia (Wugeley) Kurtzmann, was born in Buffalo, N. Y., February 2, 1860, and was graduated from St. Joseph's College in 1880. His father had established a piano manufactory in Buffalo in 1848, soon after his arrival from Germany, and in this business Mr. Kutzmann early developed musical talents of the highest degree. In 1886 Christian Kurtzmann died, and Louis S. Kurtzmann, Adolph Geiger and Alexander Cordes formed a copartnership under the firm name of C. Kurtzmann & Co., which has remained unchanged, Mrs. Fredericka Cordes succeeding to the interest of her husband upon his death in 1893. This is one of the oldest and best known piano manufactories in the United States, and has always held the foremost rank in the business. Christian Kurtzmann was a man of practical experience, was endowed with a wonderful talent for music, and as a citizen was everywhere esteemed for bis energy, enterprise, ability and integrity; and all these sterling qualities have been manifested by his son, Louis S., who, with his associates, has not only continued, but increased the fame of the Kurtzmann piano throughout the country. May 30, 1885, Mr. Kurtzmann married Anna M., daughter of Thomas Seaver and a sister of Hon. Joseph V. Seaver of Buffalo. They have one son, Christian.
