Murphy, Edward, has resided and prosecuted his vocation in Lockport for many years, and is deservedly popular, not only with property owners, contractors, architects, builders and others directly interested in improvements, but with the business community and general public. He was born at Moyles, Monaghan county, in the North of Ireland, October 17, 1859. His 6rst schooling was obtained at New-Castle-on-Tyne, England. In 1868 he immigrated with his mother to this country and settled in Lockport; his first business experience was in the capacity of office boy in the office of R. H. James, in whose employ he continued for nine years. In 1885 he accepted a position as salesman with Calvin Himes, one of the leading lumber dealers of Lockport, and in 1890 succeeded him in business, which he has since conducted with marked success. Mr. Murphy has two yards, one at No. 6 East avenue and one on West avenue. The one on West avenue comprises an acre and a half of land, with a storage capacity of from 1,000,000 to 1,500,000 feet, the annual sales averaging from $50,000 to $60,000. Mr. Murphy deservedly enjoys the confidence and a liberal share of the patronage of the contractors and builders of Lockport and tile country round about, and is popular with all who know him by reason of his well known integrity, liberality and courteous manners.
