    Notes 
    • James Krein received a liberal education and taught school in his
      native caton. At the age of twenty-one he emigrated to America, going
      first to Rochester,NY, and later to Nunda, where he taught the French
      language during the years 1848 and 1849 in exchange for his eduation
      in the English language. In 1850 he came to Dansville, and was
      employed as a clerk by the firm of Sikes and Wood, remaining with them
      in this capacity for some time. He then established himself in the
      grocery business, in which he continued successfully until 1876.
      During his career as a merchant he struggled manfully against many
      discouragements, the greatest of which was the loss of all he
      possessed by fire, his store being burned soon after its
      establishment. He again started in business, only to again suffer a
      second time from the same cause. Persisting, however, in his efforts,
      he ultimately became a prosperous merchant, well known and hightly
      respected. After his retirement from the grocery business in 1876 he
      engaged in the insurance business, which he conducted up to the time
      of his death. (Biographical Review of Livingston and Wyoming
