Aaron Lufkin Kelsey, the son of Lucy (Lufkin) and Joseph Kelsey, Son, Hiram Reeve Kelsey
For six years he was identified with the interests of Lake navigation, and in 1856, in partnership with Nathan Reeve, established himself in the Lumber business in Toledo. He was one of the earliest Lumber merchants there, finding in the trade but three firms, Curtis & Thomas, Hathaway & Raymond, and H. B. Hall & Co. From 1856 to 1886, he steadily held to the same pursuit and through all the graduations and changes in Toledo's Lumber interests, from one of trifling importance to the present large proportions. Thirty years in active labor, earned him the right to rest, and in 1886 he retired to private life, leaving his son (H. Reeve Kelsey) as his business successor. Mr. Kelsey has been among the foremost citizens in public spirit, ready to co-operate in whatever promised the public welfare. He is a Director in the Merchants National Bank, and in such capacity has been associated with that institution from its foundation.
