He was born at New York City on the 4th of November, 1836, but was raised in Wooster, Ohio. He received his early education at the common schools, and in 1850, being but fourteen years of age, he left home to commence life for himself. He secured a situation as clerk in a dry goods store, remaining in that positiion for ten years, when the severe hard work and close confinement he had undergone commenced to tell upon his physical system and he was forced to make a change. He went to Idaho, where he was restored to helath, and remained there three years. Then, in 1864, returned to Chicago, and in February of the year following came to this city and bought the interest of Mr. Childs, of the firm of Childs & Howell, hardware dealers, and conducted the business for nine years under the name of Howell & Seeberger. at the expiration of this time he purchased the former's interest and has since conducted a business second to no house in his line in the State, and, as a business man, has established a wide and honorable reputation, and no one has contributed more to Des Moines' good name as a business center. He was married November 13, 1866, to Miss M. B. Cooper, of Mount Vernon, Ohio.
