Hollister, Granger A., Rochester, N.Y., was born December 7, 1854, in Rochester, N.Y., and has spent his entire life in that city. His father, Emmett H. Hollister, was born in 1829 in Rochester. His mother, Sarah E. (Granger) Hollister, who departed this life in 1894, was a daughter of Austin Granger, of Troy, N.Y. The first ancestor, John Hollister, in this country came here from England in 1640, settling at South Glastonbury, Conn. His descendants largely remained in New England until early in the nineteenth century, when George A. Hollister (grandfather of Granger A.) moved to New York, and in 1826 became a resident of Rochester. Granger A. Hollister was educated in private schools of Rochester, but in his nineteenth year (following his father's death) he left school to carry on his father's lumber business, and with his brother, George C., and mother formed a copartnership under the style of Hollister Brothers.
