Biography of Gurdon H. Williams


Williams, Gurdon H., a native of Michigan, was born September 11, 1851. His parents removed to Buffalo in 1854, where he attended the public schools and was graduated from the High School in 1870. His first business experience after graduation was in the grocery business, supplying steamboats, in which he was engaged for ten years. In 1890 he formed a copartnership with J. B. Longmore, under the style of Williams & Longmore, which continued for three years, and which was succeeded by the firm of Williams & Cornell, wholesale dealers in butter, eggs and cheese. Aside from Mr. Williams's interests in this city he owns and operates two creameries in Michigan with a capacity of 1,000 pounds of butter daily. He was married in 1882 to Miss Loretto Marsh of St. Louis, Mo.
