Bachman, Albert F., was born in Prussia, Germany, September 18, 1830, and came to the United States in 1852 with his parents, J. Frederick and Wilhelmina Bachman, settling in Lewis county. Mr. Bachman remained in Lewis county until 1860. In 1863 he learned the carpenter's trade and for a time worked in Carthage and Watertown. The first material shipped over the Utica and Black River Railroad to the St. Lawrence River was for a cottage of which he was the builder. In 1879 he had charge of building the hotel at Round Island, now called the Frontenac. The same year he removed to Alexandria Bay and has since been contracting and building, and has built many of the finest cottages on the river as well as the Episcopal and Catholic churches at Alexandria Bay. In 1862 he married Sarah Shults. They have two children: Dr. George A., a physician located in Rochester, N. Y., and one daughter, Pamelia H. Mr. Bachman is one of the men to which the Thousand Islands are indebted for their present existence, taking an active interest in town and church affairs, being one of the trustees of the Episcopal church.
