John Ross Bremner

ROSS BREMNER was born October 8, 1870, in Invergordon, Ross-shire, Scotland, the son of Donald Bremner and Jessie Mackenzie Bremncr. His father is living at the old homestead in Scotland.

Mr. Bremner attended the public school in Invergordon. In 1892 he came to New York, and in 1897 became a citizen of the United States. In 1896 he started in the business of furniture, upholstery and interior decoration, and the firm was incorporated in 1908 as the John R. Bremner Company, of which he is the President. The business has not only devel- oped extensively in New York and other cities, but has extended throughout the eastern states from Maine to Texas. This growth has been largely due to the genial personality of the President, as well as to the fine quality and reliability of the work that has built up the reputation of his firm.

He is Exalted Ruler of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, a Mason, a member of the St. Andrew’s Society of the State of New York, a member of Clan MacDuff (New York), and a Royal Deputy of the Order of Scottish Clans (New York). He is a member of the Presbyterian church, and has contributed generously to charitable and worthy objects.

He married, April 14, 1900, at Albany, New York, Miss Jennie Watson, of Portmohomack, Ross-shire. They have three children: Donald John, Alexander Watson, and Ross Mackenzie. Mr. Bremner's business address is 680 Madison Avenue, New York City; his residence, 35 Davis Avenue, White Plains, N. Y.
