Inventor, business magnate. He was already a leading flour miller and merchant in "The Flour City" of Rochester, NY, when demand from the rest of the world for Rochester flour became so great that new equipment and processes were needed to keep up with production. He invented many iron tools and machinery to mass produce barrels, and devised a new system of harnessing and transferring water-generated power through gears, pulleys and elevated shafts on several floors of his building, which thus became one of the earliest multi-level machine tool factories in the country.
