Herman, Peter & John [Rohrs] were associated withMiddendorf & Rohrs Middendorf & Rohrs were wholesale grocers located here from 1897 to 1964. Middendorf was Henry Middendorf (1847-1927), and Rohrs was Herman Rohrs (1853-1904). Their partnership began in 1897. Both men were immigrants from Germany. Two other Rohrs were also involved in the business: Peter Rohrs (1867-1949) and John Rohrs (1881-1965). They seem to have been nephews of Herman Rohrs. Peter Rohrs was born in Wilstedt, Hannover, Germany.
Why did the business pass to John and Peter? Herman did have children
