The firm of Beck & Salway was formed in 1888, by William Beck and John E. Salway. Their place of business is in the Exchange building on Court street, where they keep a large stock of flour: feed, grain, hay, and fertilizers. William Beck, the senior member of the firm, is an Englishman, and came here in 1870. and for 10 years was engaged in raising hops, having charge of the yards of C. D. Lane, of Batavia. He was finally employed in Parsons's flour and feed store, and became a partner under the firm name of Beck & Parsons. They dissolved in 1888, and Mr. Beck became a partner of John E. Dalway, who is also a native of England. He came to America in 1872, and in 1875 to this county.
