Biography of P. J. Soeman


Soeman, P. J., Lancaster, was born in Lancaster in 1871, and is the son of Charles J. Soeman, who was born in Bavaria, Germany, in 1838 and came to America in 1849. He lived in Buffalo some years, where he learned the brewer's trade and was for some time foreman for Gerhard Lang and also for Magnus Beck of Buffalo, and later came to Lancaster, where he was for two years foreman for John Beck's brewery, after which he went in partnership with S. Hilbert, at East Lancaster, and after three years they dissolved. Mr. Soeman built in 1869 a brewery on the corner of Main and Court streets, Lancaster, which he ran until his death, in March, 1891, after which it was carried on by his son, P. J. Soeman, until September, 1894, when it was destroyed by fire. Since then P. J. Soeman has been agent for the Magnus Beck Brewing Company of Buffalo for the northern part of Erie county, and is well known as a rising business man.
