Biography of Millard F. Tallmage


Tallmage, Millard F., Buffalo, was born in Nunda, Livingston county, N. Y., July 13, 1854. After obtaining from the public schools of his native town a liberal education, he served an apprenticeship at the machinist trade, working at that about six years. In 1874 he removed to Buffalo and engaged as a clerk in the store of J. B. Pierce (who was conducting one of the largest stove, furnace and house furnishing stores in the city), where, as the result of hard work and close attention to business, in 1881 he obtained an interest in the business, together with his brother, the style of the firm becoming J. B. Pierce & Co., which copartnership continued until the spring of 1887, when Mr. Pierce retired and the business was then conducted by Talimage Bros. (H. K. and M. F. Tallmage). This firm continued until 1892, when Horace K. Tallmage retired and Millard F. has since conducted the business alone. From his earliest life Mr. Tailmage has ever manifested qualities of a high order, and by his industry and perseverance has amassed a considerable fortune, and is one of Erie county's most successful business men. Being governed by a high sense of honor and of a social nature, he enjoys the respect and confidence of all who know him.
