CHARLES ELIAS — In that part of Russian
Poland now within the borders of the sovereign state of Lithuania, Charles
Elias, son of Meyer and Belle Elias, was born August 21, 1879, and there he
spent the first thirteen years of his life. In 1892 he came to the United
States, and in New York City spent many years engaged in various occupations.
In 1910 he located in Passaic, New Jersey, and opened a store for the sale of
glass, his place of business for one year on Passaic Street. In 1911 he moved
to larger quarters on Monroe Street, there specializing in plate glass. His
business grew to such proportions that he erected a building at No. 840 Main Avenue,
with a ground area 100x190 feet, which he keeps stocked with glass of different
kinds to its utmost capacity.
The excellent railroad facilities at his
present location are of special importance, shipments and deliveries being
promptly made, and with his large stock of commercial and builders' glass he
can successfully compete with metropolitan houses. During the war with Spain,
Mr. Elias served with the United States forces.
Mr. Elias married, March 1, 1903, in
Worcester, Massachusetts, Ida Israel, of Houston, Texas, daughter of Abram and
Ray Israel, her father a speculator in cotton. Mr. and Mrs. Elias are the
parents of three children:
1. Aubrey, born in Williamsburg, New
York, on South Fourth Street, September 19, 1908.
2. Mervin, born at No. 240 Monroe
street, Passaic, New Jersey, June 15, 1912.
3. Franklin, bom at No. 63 Quincy
street, Passaic, New Jersey, November 5,
Mr. Elias and his family reside at No.
