  • Notes 
    • Mr. Jacob Foerster was born at Bamburg, Ont. He came to Elmira twelve years ago and later became interested in the firm of Heimbecher, Klinck & Co. After dissolution of this firm, he launched out as contractor, on his own account. He takes contracts for carpenter work of any description and has done some very good work in his line.
