From freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry: "Paul Douglas Millholland graduated as a Civil Engineer in 1886 from Lehigh University. He assisted in surveying and constructing the West Virginia Central and Pittsburgh Railway, now the Western Maryland Railroad, after which he was connected with the Georges Creek and Cumberland Railroad at Cumberland, Md. In 1889 he left Cumberland to help construct and later manage the Neversink Mountain R.R. at Reading, Pa., the third electric railroad in the United States, and the first electric railroad in this country operated by water power. After four years, during which time in 1894, he was elected to the City Council, he went into the electrical supply and construction business for himself in Reading, and about 1898 entered the Iron and Steel business with J. H. Sternbergh & Son, as sales representative. Later on, this firm was absorbed by the American Iron & Steel Manufacturing Co., which was later merged with Bethlehem Steel Co., where he was connected in the sales department in Philadelphia up to the time of his retirement in 1928. He died in Philadelphia, September 16, 1946 and is buried in Charles Evans Cemetery, Reading, with his wife Virginia who died in Philadelphia May 31, 1941. A Western Union telegram, laid in, sent to Binghamton NY, Oct 12 1927, from "Geo R Murray" to Thomas A. Wilson, re the Princeton Athletic Association and a sports team meeting at the "Arlington Hotel". Re George R. Murray, listsearches.rootsweb.ancestry : "After my earlier posting I realized that your inquiry is evidently about George R. Murray Jr. who was a brother of my great grandfather John Henry Murray. Their father was also George Murray. John Henry Murray was also with the railroad perhaps getting the job through his brother George. Before that he was a noted lumberjack and boxer in the Saginaw, MI area thus the nickname Saginaw Jack." Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory #
