Biographical Sketch of John T. Breck

JOHN T. BRECK, eldest son of Henry Breck, established himself as a merchant at Cornish Flat, in 1841. His integrity and fine business qualities have secured to him a handsome fortune, and an honorable reputation among his neighbors. His is a rare case of success in trade and universal esteem among his neighbors and townsmen. After having been in trade 26 years, he cannot be said to have an enemy. He is a gentleman of fine literary taste and varied attainments. He fitted for college, but on account of a trouble with his eyes, abandoned the idea of a college course, and turned his attention to mercantile pursuits. He retired from business in 1866, and is now living upon a farm in Lebanon.
