  • Notes 

    • The 1889 Saginaw Directory shows Bridget Maher, at 719 Mason Street in East Saginaw, and James G. Maher as a boarder at the same address. James' occupation is shown as a Clerk at Anderson Brothers. Mason Street is the address listed for the family in the 1880 census. [12]
    • Saginaw Men In Demand
      Two Well Known Young Busness (sic) Men Have Been Captured for Outside Concerns
      Saginaw men are in demand in the outside business world, as well as a home and sometimes they feel compelled to yield to the alluring offers made them. This has happened to W. E. English and James G. Maher, two well known employes of the Barie Dry Goods company, who will sever relations with that concern to enter upon careers elsewhere about the beginning of the new year.
      Mr. English, who has been in charge of a department in the Saginaw house, will go to the Taylor Carpet company, Indianapolis, and will be in charge of drapery, furnishing and contract decorating department of that firm, which is considered a splendid opportunity. Mr. Mahar (sic), who has been for some years in the whole sale department of the Saginaw firm, and also secretary to William Barie, junior, will take up a similar line of work in the wholesale Krolich house at Detroit. Both men regret for personal reasons that they are leaving Saginaw, but they could not afford to decline the opportunities offered them for advancement financially and otherwise. [13]
