Names and Page # Index


ALFRED H. FAUST, proprietor of the Chalfont Creamery, one of the leading industrial industries of the town of Chalfont, Pennsylvania, was born in Frederick township, Montgomery county, Pennsylvania, September 28, 1857, a son of Samuel and Mary FAUST.

During his boyhood he obtained liberal educational advantages, attending the public schools of his native township and Norristown, also Washington Hall Seminary and Sumneytown Academy. The knowledge thus acquired thoroughly qualified him for the vocation of teaching, which he followed for two years. He then accepted a position as superintendent of a creamery in his native township, retaining the same for six years, and also served in a similar capacity at Franklin for two years, and in the Union Creamery in Plumstead township, Bucks county. On April 1, 1894, Mr. FAUST, in company with Mr. H. W. GROSS, purchased the Chalfont Creamery, and they conducted business under the firm name of A. H. FAUST & co., Mr. FAUST taking upon himself the active management of the same. Two years later Mr. FAUST purchased his partners interest in the business, and from then to the present time (1905) has successfully conducted the same on his own account. He is honorable and straightforward in all his transactions, and therefore well merits the prosperity, which has crowned his efforts. In 1900 he was elected justice of the peace, of which office he is still the incumbent, and he also served in the capacity of borough treasurer and school director. He adheres to the doctrines of the Lutheran church, in which body he holds membership and serves as trustee. His political allegiance is given to the Republican party, and he is an honored member of the Knights of the Golden Eagle, and the Protective Order of Sons of America. Mr. FAUST was married March 20, 1880, in Montgomery county, Pennsylvania, to Miss Clarissa TRUMBOWER, a daughter of Elias and Rachel (JONES) TRUMBOWER. Their children are: Olivia, wife of Charles PIERSON, Jr., and they are the parents of one child, Elizabeth PIERSON; Laura, Irene, and Alfred H., Jr.
