Notes for Joseph Herman EMERY


The book "New England Families Genealogical and Memorial: Volume IV," by William Richard Cutter, originally published in 1913, and reprinted in Baltimore by Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1996, available on the internet in January 2000 in the Family Tree Maker Online Library on page 2011 shows "Joseph Herman, son of Joseph Huntress Emery, was born in Dover, December 15, 1859. He attended the public schools in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. In 1878 he came to New York City and became a clerk in the old and reliable dry goods establishment of Lord & Taylor, on Broadway, and by faithful service won promotion step by step until he became president of the Lord & Taylor corporation. He ranks among the foremost merchants of the metropolis, and much of the success of the great department store of which he is the head is due to his energy, progressiveness and sagacity. His career is an inspiring example of the opportunities in American business life for a youth of ability and ambition. He is a member of the New England Society of New York; the New Hampshire Club of New York; the Union League Club; and of the New York Chamber of Commerce. In politics he is a Republican; in religion a member of the Universalist church. He married, July 6, 1889. Fanny Adele Constant, born October 6, 1863, daughter of Dr. and Mrs. John H. Constant, of Peru, Indiana. They have no children."
