Biography

Little is known about Edwin and James Price. In 1867 Edwin was a shopkeeper and trader in Warehouse Point, Connecticut, where his mother, father, and sister Emma also lived. His brother James was a harness maker, who worked for John B. Baker & Co. in Boston. Edwin wanted James to set up a shop in Connecticut so that the two brothers could have a joint business. James did move home to Warehouse Point, but by 1870 Edwin had left Connecticut for Denver, Colorado, where he writes his brother about business prospects in the young Denver and the new territory's nearly limitless potential for growth.
