Rebstock, Joseph Henry, Buffalo, son of John and Catherine (Kiepser) Rebstock, was born in Buffalo, N. Y., March 4, 1861. His first business experience was as a clerk in the hardware store of his brother, John E., in whose employ he remained six years, subsequently becoming a partner in the business. In 1896 he became sole proprietor and the firm name was changed to the Rebstock Furnace Company. In March, 1886, he established himself as a florist, in which business he has since been actively engaged. In 1887 he succeeded F. Zimmerman in the nursery business, which is now known as the Pine Hill Nurseries. Mr. Rebstock is also largely interested in a number of corporations, being president of the Crystal Beach Steamboat and Ferry Company, and a director in the Freehold Savings and Loan Association. He is a member of the Lodge of Ancient Landmarks No. 441, F. & A. M., and the Buffalo Republican League, a charter, member of the Buffalo Whist Club,. and a member of the Ellicott Club, and the Bohemian Sketch Club. Mr. Rebstock is possessed of rare artistic taste and a love of the beautiful, and it would be difficult to name any ornamental member of the vegetable kingdom worthy of a place and capable of cultivation in garden or conservatory that may not be found in his collection. He was married June 24, 1896, to Miss Elvira, daughter of Capt. John Green, of Buffalo, N. Y.
