Puffer, William W.-Among the most noted representatives of the marble trade is the firm of Puffer & Co., of which William W. is a member. This business was founded by Mr. Isaac G. Puffer at Lowville, in 1863. In 1888 he removed to Adams, where he conducted business until 1892, and then removed to Watertown, where they have since conducted business. The work shops and yard are located at No. 113 Washington street, where are shown fine examples of mortuary art in the form of monuments, tomb headstones, etc., in imported and domestic granite and marble. The facilities are ample and parties in need of anything in this line, from a simple marble slab to an imposing Amerian, Swedish, Italian or Scotch granite monument, are invited to call at the above number. Mr. Puffer is son of Isaac G. and Carry (Winslow) Puffer, and was born at Lowville, N. Y. At an early age he entered the employ of his father, commencing at the bottom and by dint of hard work, enterprise and honorable methods, worked himself up to his present position as an equal owner in the business.
