Brother of Missouri Governor David R. Francis. He became associated with the same St. Louis firm that his brother was connected to in the grain and commission business. Although a young man when he first made his appearance as a trader on the floor of the Chamber of Commerce, he rapidly became one of the most successful traders in grain and produce in St. Louis. He built up a large fortune as a result of his successful operations as well as his active cooperation in every movement designed to extend the trade of St. Louis and to increase the prestige and prominence of the city as a center of commercial and industrial activity.
