Byam & Foster, grocers and dealers in clothing, hats and caps. The present firm was inaugurated April 1, 1897, by the consolidation of two business houses; that of A. L. Byam, dealer in clothing, hats, caps and gents' furnishing goods, with the grocery business of William T. Foster. That no mistake was made in this arrangement is borne out by the large and constantly increasing volume of trade enjoyed by them. They are both in the prime of life and their future as a business concern has every indication of being a bright one. Mr. Byarn is a native of Chaumont, was born in 1865, and has always resided among the people with whom he now has daily dealings. As a Republican he is deservedly popular; he was made postmaster during Harrison's administration, and is also a member of Chaumont Lodge No. 895, I. O. Foresters. Mr. Foster was born in Kingston, Ontario, November 30, 1855, and has been a resident of the States for twenty-eight years. His early life was spent in railroading and farming. He embarked in the grocery business in Chaumont in 1892, continuing the business alone until the formation of the present firm in April, 1897. Mr. Foster is a member of both the Masons and Foresters, holding membership in Chaumont Lodge No. 172, F. & A. M., and Court Chaumont No. 895, LO.F.
