Biography of John L. & Edward C. Weigand


Weigand Bros., John L. and Edward C., Buffalo, were born in Constantinople, Turkey, in 1860 and 1865 respectively, sons of John L. and Elizabeth Weigand. John L. was a native of Bavaria, Germany, and Elizabeth of Russia. The father was a baker by trade and came with his family to America in 1867, settling in Buffalo, and after five years at his trade engaged in the malting business. This be followed until the time of his death in 1897. The brothers received a limited education in the German schools of Buffalo, but having the natural qualifications for successful business men they were early engaged in business on their own account. In 1886 they engaged in the coal business, having succeeded to it through the death of a brother, and to this business, which has grown proportionately large under their management, they have added the flour and feed business. In 1887 they succeeded their father in the malting business which they continued until 1894, when they ceased operations in that line, thereby enabling them to devote more time and attention to their real estate transactions, they having acquired possession of considerable valuable realty. They continued their large coal and feed business, their office being located at No. 1093 Genesee street, where they own considerable property. In politics the brothers are Republicans; John L. has been active in political affairs in his ward for a number of years, and is at the present time a candidate for the office of supervisor. He is a member of Sprudell Fishing Club and Harmonia Benevolent Association. The brothers are members of the orders of Odd Fellows and Red Men. They are both married.
