    T. H. NORR

    T. H. NORR, who is engaged in the tin, iron and slate roofing business at Piqua, with headquarters at No. 114 East Water Street, is one of the representative business men of this city, where his interests have been centered for the past eighteen years. He was born in 1871, in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where he attended school.

    When a young man, Mr. Norr learned the tinner's trade with Becker & Son, at Fort Wayne, and after he came to Piqua he worked for Lenox & Co., for one year, for J. M. Heim, for three years, and later for the Barnett Hardware Company and Deweese & Woodcox. In 1900 he formed a partnership with W. F. Lentz, under the firm name of Lentz & Norr, which continued until 1903, when he sold out to his partner and embarked in business for himself at his present location. He does all kinds of roofing and cornice work, making a specialty of heavy iron work, such as boiler building and smoke stack construction having the largest business in his line in the county, and affording employment to fourteen to twenty-three skilled men. His reputation for satisfactory work and materials extends far beyond the city and he is kept busy with contracts and orders from distant as well as local points. This business Mr. Norr has built up through his own industry and efficiency.

    In 1895 Mr. Norr was married to Miss Georgianna Schutte, of Troy. He is a member of a number of fraternal organizations: the Masons, including the higher branches and the Scottish Rite, the Red Men, the Elks, the Knights of Pythias, and the Eagles, and belongs to the Elks Club.
