Julius Alonzo Candee
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 30, 1814
Montgomery County
New York, USA
Death: May 15, 1894
New York, USA

Julius Alonzo Candee was the son of David Woodruff Candee and Elizabeth Ostrom. He married three times: first, Caroline Hanks, and had one child, Mary Eloise Candee. His second marriage was to Evelina Weed and their children were Ida Evelina, Ella, Annie W., and Edward Willis Candee. His third marriage was to Cornelia Weed, sister of his second wife. This marriage occurred in the twilight of their years, and had no issue.

Julius A. Candee was in the building material business in New York City. His first company was Candee, Merrill & Co. In 1855, the company disbanded. Some time after 1858, Julius became a member of the partnership Candee & Smith, Building Materials, East 26 Street and West 52nd Street, New York City. In 1872, 1875, 1876, 1878-1884, Candee & Smith Bricks, (building materials, ft. E., 26th and 53rd) was listed in the New York City Directory. In 1891 after Evelina's death, Candee & Smith had branched out to Connecticut: "masons' building materials, ft. E. 26th, ft, E 53d, E. 135th & Mott Haven Canal & 381 South. Main office, foot of East 26th Street New York." Looks like Edward W. Candee took over the business because the NYC directory changed: "Edward W. Candee, bldg. matls. ft. E. 26th, ft. E. 53rd, E. 135th n Mott Haven Canal & 381 South, h 113 W. 57th."

Julius Alonzo Candee passed away on 15 May 1894 in Stamford, Fairfield County, Connecticut and is buried in the family plot in the Green-Wood Cemetery along with his three wives and some of his children.
