Biography of J. F. Pfister


Pfister, J. F., Buffalo, son of Andrew and Elizabeth (Suttle) Pfister, was born in West Alden, Erie county, November 11, 1867, and obtained his education in the district schools of that village. He is of German descent; his father came to this country from Germany in 1846, settled in Lancaster, and thence removed to West Alden; his mother came to West Alden from Germany in 1865. They were married the same year and still reside there. After leaving school Mr. Pfister was engaged in farming until 1886, when he came to Buffalo and entered the employ of H. G. Eichner, who conducted a bakery at 220 William street. He remained two years and then entered the employ of N. Kans at 403 Broadway, remaining three years. In February, 1892, he assumed the management of the Buffalo branch of the A. P. C. Compressed Yeast and the Prussing Vinegar Company, which post was tendered him by A. P. Callahan, the Chicago yeast manufacturer. The branch was started in a small way, but under the efficient management of Mr. Pfister its business has greatly increased and at present several wagons are used. Mr. Pfister is a member of the Improved Order of Red Men and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. On May 30, 1895, he married Eliza J., daughter of Edward Ralph of Buffalo.
