Birth: 1823
Death: Mar., 1911

Business magnate. In 1857, he co-founded the Rau & Reisky Brewery, which became the Genesee Brewing Company in 1878. Renamed the High Falls Brewing Company in 1992, it is still one of the largest breweries in the US today, distributing to around 40 states and producing brands such as Michael Shea's, Honey Brown and Seagrams Coolers. He also organized the Standard Sewer Pipe Company and the Rochester German Insurance Company. He died of influenza aged 87 years 11 months, and was interred in the hillside vault which bears his name on March 6 1911. His family residence at the time was on Cataract Street, also home to his Genesee Brewery.
