He was then located opposite the old court house; from this place he removed to 116 1/2 Congress street, where he remained for fourteen years, when he purchased the buildings at 105-107 Congress street. After the death of his wife, which occurred March 8, 1870, the business was conducted by Nathaniel, who built up so great a trade that it became necessary to further enlarge the establishment in order to keep up with the demands of trade, and in 1888 the younger sons, James and Benjamin. were added to the firm and Nathaniel entered the manufacture of clothing in New York city and is at present located at 721 and 723 Broadway. Michael Goldstone died March 31, 1894. He was a member of the Third Street synagogue, also a member of Jermah Lodge No. 78, K. S. B., and Bnai Berith. Since his death the business is conducted by James and Benjamin under the firm name of Goldstone Brothers.
