1897 Biography - P. Scanlon

Scanlon, P., was born in Buffalo, in 1849, and has resided in North Tonawanda for twenty-eight years, where he is proprietor of the Niagara Frontier House, a fine new block which he built on the site of the old Frontier House, which was destroyed by fire. The building is 56 by 44 feet in dimensions and contains twenty rooms besides Scanlon's Hall, which is the entire size of the building. Mr. Scanlon is a prominent society man, a member of the C. M. B. A., the Hibernians, the N. C. P. A., the Press Club of Buffalo, and Alert Hose Company No. 1, besides a German society. In 1883 he married Kate Hennerberger, and their children are George, Charles. Frank, Edward, William and Kate, all of whom, except William, are children of Mrs. Scanlon's by a previous marriage. Frank assists his father in the business and is also a member of Alert Hose Company. Mr. Scanlon owes his success in life entirely to his own efforts and ability; as a youth and young man he was in the rafting and lumber business much of the time in Michigan.
