Biography of William F. Bayer
Rensselaer County, NY Biographies





Bayer, William F., was born in Troy, N. Y., May 28, 1858. His parents, Thomas and Regina Bayer, were born in Germany and are of the oldest and most respected German residents of this city. His father, Thomas Bayer, died in 1873, his mother is still alive and has been a resident of this city for over fifty years. Mr. Bayer received his education in the public schools and left the Troy High School to accept a position in the Troy City Bank, where he remained several years; the practical business and financial education he received there has been of great value to him. Owing to ill health he left the bank, and went to Colorado, where he remained on a ranch until finding his health restored he returned to Troy and entered the lumber office of Howes & Weaver which was soon succeeded by Weaver & Thompson. He soon acquired a knowledge of the business and enjoyed the confidence and esteem of his employers. When the firm of Weaver & Thompson was dissolved in 1887 Mr. Bayer negotiated for the purchase of the business, and having associated with him as partner Mr. Alonzo McConihe, succeeded to the business. The firm of Bayer & McConihe was thus formed and by enterprise and maintaining a reputation for fair dealing, it has steadily increased its business, so that it is now the largest and best known wholesale and retail lumber firm in this vicinity. Their office is located at 53 River street, Troy, N. Y. Mr. Bayer was married in 1893 to Wilhelmina, a daughter of Werner Strecker of the firm of Macdonald & Co.
