He was a contractor-builder of Coke Ovens. He built many ovens for Henry Clay Frick, known as the Henry Clay Plant, and for many other companies in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
They resided in Westmoreland County until 1904 when they moved to Westerville, Ohio so their daughters could attend Otterbein College, however in his mother Lydia's obit it states he was living in W Va in 1907. The family moved back to Pennsylvania later. Zachariah seemed to not live with the family much, traveling most of the time for his work constructing coke ovens.
