  • Notes 
    • Fred had tuberculosis so he moved west from New York for the arid climate, believing he only had six months to live. After several years the dry mountain air in Colorado had imporved his condition and he began in earnest to rebuild his life. In 1900 he founded Munro Mercantile. His business thrived during the early 1900's growing to five locations.
