    Walter Braun. Among the recent commercial acquisitions of Troy is the meat business of Walter and Joseph Braun, which is rapidly building up an excellent patronage and bids fair to become one of the important business assets of the city. Walter Braun was born at Troy, Ohio, March 1, 1890, a son of Nicholas and Mary (Weingartner) Braun, one of seven children born to his parents He was educated in the public schools of Troy and as a youth learned the butcher's trade, which he followed in various markets until 1917, at which time he embarked in business with his brother Joseph. While the establishment is modest in appearance, the brothers have already built up an excellent patronage through fair dealing, honest representation and courteous service, and their progressive ideas and ambitious hopes may be noted in their recent establishment of a slaughter house along the river. Walter Braun's career was interrupted for a time by the late World War, when he joined the One Hundred and Fortieth Field Artillery and saw service overseas for nine months. He is a popular member of the local lodges of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Mr. Braun married Florence, daughter of John Monck, of Troy, and they had one son, John Thomas, who is deceased.
