Hamlin, Frank J., was born at Milwaukee, Wis., August 11, 1852, a son of the late George B. Hamlin. He attended the public schools at Niagara Falls, whither his parents had removed, and later took a thorough course in the Bryant & Stratton's Business College at Buffalo, after which he accepted a position as clerk in a large boot and shoe store in Lockport where he remained for seven years. In 1877 he removed to Niagara Falls, and established himself in the tobacco and fancy goods trade, which he followed for thirteen years, when he departed into the coal and wood business in which he still continues to successfully operate. He is a member of Niagara Frontier Lodge No. 132, F. & A. M., and is a capable and energetic business man, respected by and popular among all classes.
