1897 Biography - Mason M. Smith

Smith, Mason M., Wheatfield, was born in Michigan, and was connected in the lumber business in that State with the firm of Ross & Bradley, prior to coming to North Tonawanda in 1894, to take charge of the business of Mr. Godkin of that place. He is one of the enterprising and successful lumber men of the Lumber City and the business under his management amounts to ten million feet of lumber annually. He was assistant superintendent for Ross & Bradley for three years before becoming manager for Mr. Godkin. In 1895 Mr. Smith married Sarah L. Ross, daughter of G. A. Ross of Detroit. Mr. Smith's parents were Marcellus S. and Cornelia (Andrews) Smith. His father died in 1893 and his mother in 1890. After leaving Ross & Bradley, Mr. Smith went to Pittsburg, Pa., and remained there until 1893, when his father's death took him back to Michigan to settle up the estate. After this was done he came to North Tonawanda.
