JAMES W. MASTERS, proprietor of tbe Malvern creamery and a well known business man of Philadelphia, is the second son of Joseph and Sarah (Edwards)Masters,

His paternal grandfather, David Masters, was a native of the same country, and was a son of James Masters, wbo, it is thought, was born in Chester county, and went from there into Columbia county among the first settlers. At any rate James Masters was among the early pioneers of Columbia county, where he cleared out a tiny farm, upon which he
lived and died. His son, David (grandfather), increased the homestead after his father's death, and passed the remainder of his life there, dying in 1858, aged nearly seventy-five years. He was a farmer by occupation, and all the family were strict members of the Society of Friends. His wife was Mary Eves, a member of a prominent family of that county, and by her they had a family of eight children : (George, James, Joseph. I'arvin, Sarah,
Margaret, Elizabeth and Mary.
