FREDERICK HOLFORD, Vice President Republic Printing Company, Springfield. Frederick Alford was born near the
city of Oxford, England, on May 9, A. D. 1813; emigrated to the United States in 1834, taking up his abode in the
city of New York, where he resided one year, then removed to Chicage, remaining in the Garden City, then little
more than a quagmire, eighteen months, during which time he attained his majority and voted for the first Mayor
of what is now a city of overt half a million souls; he then removed to Iowa, following agricultural pursuits until
his advent in Cincinnati in 1841; there he became a shoe merchant and manufacturer, continuing in this business
until his coming to this city, which occurred in 1874. Here he became largely interested in the Republic Printing
Company, being chosen its Vice President, which position he holds now; the important manufacturing interest known
as the Republic Printing Company receives appropriate attention in the industrial department of this work. Mr.
Holford has been thrice married; first, to Louisa Weismann, in 1843, whom he lost in 1856, and by whom he had one
son - George T., now living in Cincinnati; in 1858, he married Margaret Sampson, who died in 1865; by this union
he had two children, both of whom he lost; his third union was with Mrs. Harriet Bushnell, in 1866, who is now
the loved companion of his declining years. Mr. Holford came to America alone, and has in every sense been the
carver of his own fortunes; he is genial, frank, true, and public spirited, in short, is universally esteemed by
all who know him; he enjoys the distinction of having been one the second Trustees of the Children's Home, and
is an Elder in the First Presbyterian Church of this city.
