Brant & Fuller, 1890.
"John Flading, of the firm of Beltz, Flading & Co., was born in Hesse, Germany, in 1830. He came to the United States in 1849, having previously been deprived, by death, of his parents, and was accompanied by his brother and sister. They landed at New York July 3, and thence proceeded to Wheeling. There his brother has since died, but his sister, now Mrs. Joseph Sauers, is still living. Since his arrival at Wheeling two other brothers have come here, one of whom survives. Mr. Flading learned the trade of a millwright while in Germany, but on coming to the United States he learned carpentry, at which he worked for some time. In 1864 he formed a partnership with George Keyling, and started a planing-mill, which they operated for three years. He then took in his present partner, Mr. Beltz, and they started a planing-mill in the foundry of Culbertson & Fisher in 1857. In 1870 they removed to Bodley's building, and in 1883 to their present establishment on the corner of Nineteenth and Eoff streets. Mr. Flading was married in 1857, to Caroline Matcher, a native of Prussia, and to them have been born eight children, six of whom are living. Mr. Flading is a member of the Catholic church."
