Salvatore Manca, prominent in business and social circles of Utica, is well known as a dealer in hardware,
stoves and ranges, his establishment being located at No. 611 Bleecker street. His birth occurred in Syracuse,
Italy, on the 13th of August, 1882, his father being James Manca, a building contractor. He acquired his education
in the schools of Genoa and Syracuse and remained a resident of his native land until twenty three years of age,
crossing the Atlantic to the United States in 1905. Coming to Utica, New York, he spent four years in the employ
of the International Heating Company of this city and in 1909 resigned to embark in business on his own account
as a dealer in hardware, stoves and ranges. The establishment is the only one of its kind on the east side of Utica.
Mr. Manca carries everything in the line of kitchen utensils, does repairing of all kinds of stoves and hardware
and is also a dealer in coal and wood. He carries the Floyd Wells Company's line of goods which have the highest
reputation for quality. A young man of excellent executive ability, sound judgment and keen discrimination, he
has prospered in his undertakings and has won an enviable reputation as a business man and citizen.
As a companion and helpmate on the journey of life, Mr. Manca chose Miss Lucy Cassia., of Syracuse, Italy, by whom
he has three children, James, Marianna, and Maria Concitta. In politics he is independent, supporting men and measures
rather than party. His religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Mount Carmel Roman Catholic church
and he is likewise a valued member of the Sons of Columbus Club.
