Lorenzo Muffly
1876 - 1969

Lorenzo Leslie became a registered pharmacist in Helena at the age of 21. In the 1900 Census of Helena, Montana the household consisted of Lorenzo, his mother and grandmother. Around 1901 Lorenzo started to migrate back Eastward settling in Quincy, Illinois. In 1903, he moved his mother and grandmother to Quincy and his mother died shortly after their arrival.

After passing the Illinois examination for registered pharmacists in 1903, he purchased the store of Edward L. Green at Tenth and Elm. He later relocated his business at Tenth and Lind, then at Eighth and Locust, selling the store at Eighth and Locust in 1916 when he became a pharmacist for the late John Hermann.

He married Louisa Mae Conover daughter of William and Margaret Constance Murphy Conover June 05, 1906 in St Rose Catholic Church, Quincy, Illinois. She was born May 07, 1882 in New Brunswick, New Jersey and died August 06, 1954 in Quincy, Adams County, Illinois.

In 1918, the family moved to East Moline, because Lorenzo had a job of managing a drug store. After World War I he returned to Quincy and was employed by Kiefer's Pharmacy. That firm later sold out to the Brown Drug Co, and Lorenzo found work with the Aldo Sommer Drug Co.

Mr. Muffly returned to the John Hermann drug store in 1923. He worked in the prescription department, until 1942 when he purchased the store and operated it until his retirement in 1957.
