In 1843 Mr Flack engaged in the manufacture of salt at Syracuse NY; continued until August 1846, when he removed to Lansingburgh, where he was a grocer until March 1850. He removed to Albany, and commenced the grocery business with his wife's nephew, George H. Newcomb, under the firm name of Flack and Newcomb, corner of Broadway and Columbia Streets. In 1851 he sold his interest, returned to Lansingburgh, and engaged in the grocery trade with his brother, D.H., firm of W.A. Flack and Company. In the spring of 1852 he purchased his brother's interest, and in 1856 commenced the wholesale commission produce and seed business in Troy, with Samuel Dauchy, firm of Daucy and Flack. He sold his interest in 1859 and gave his time to the retail grocery business in Lansingburgh, which he had carried on while in Troy. In February 1864 he engaged in wholesale flour, grocery, seed and commission business in Troy with his brother D.J., firm Flack and Bro.; they were also in the retail trade in two stores in Lansingburgh until 1866. In 1871 his brother D.H. withdrew from the firm, and Isaac G. was admitted as a member; the firm continued in business in Troy.
