D. A. Peet
Born September 14, 1847
D. A. PEET, of the firm of D. A. Peet & Son, dealers in dry goods and groceries, Main street, Anamosa; is a native of Fulton Co., N.Y., and was born December 26, 1830; he lived there until 16 years of age, when he came to Iowa with his parents; they came by wagon and were five weeks on the road, and arrived in this county in November, 1846; they settled in Fairview, and were among the early settlers there. When 18 years of age, Mr. Peet entered a store as clerk, and he has been connected with the mercantile business in this county since then, over thirty years; when he first began, he had nothing, and his success is owing to his own efforts. In the spring of 1856, he was united in marriage to Miss Emily A. Crain, a native of Kalamazoo, Mich.; they have two children—one son, George S. (engaged in business with his father), and one daughter, Emily A.
