Nassoiy, Peter F., was born at Buffalo, N. Y., July 13, 1838, a son of Dominick Nassoiy. He attended the public schools of Erie county, N. Y., and worked on his father's farm until twenty-one years of age, when he removed to Niagara Falls and engaged as carriage driver for Oscar De Camp, hotel and livery stable proprietor. Later he purchased carriages and horses and secured the right to do the livery business for the Western Hotel at Suspension Bridge; he afterwards sold out to W. P. Horne, proprietor of the Western Hotel, and carried on the grocery business until 1887, when he leased a piece of property at Niagara Falls and erected the present European Hotel, which he has successfully operated ever since, having purchased the ground upon which it stands. Mr. Nassoiy is an extensive property owner and is widely known and highly respected by all.
