General Notes: Husband - John McCormick


In early life he was in business in New York city, and, in 1845, became secretary of the Atlantic Dock Company of Brooklyn, an office which he filled with great fidelity until his death. For much of the time he was the executive officer of the company, and most of its docks and warehouses, among the first in the United States, were constructed under his direct super­vision. He was quicksighted, systematic and energetic as a business man, and much respected for his intelligence and integrity. He managed the affairs of the company, and its large landed interests, with marked success.
