Andrew K. Jacks    

ANDREW K. JACKS, secretary and treasurer of the Allentown Crockery Company, was born at Rutherford, Dauphin County, Pa., in 1857, the son of Thomas and Antonnetta (DeWitt) Jacks. He received his primary education in the public schools and later attended the Indiana State Normal School. He then followed teaching as a vocation for seven years, after which he was engaged in the milling and grain business at Lickdale, Pa., for two years. In 1884 he came to Allentown and was employed as a bookkeeper until 1893, when he became one of the organizers of the Allentown Crockery Company, which has since become one of the city’s leading mercantile houses. Mr. Jacks, who is a Republican in politics and an active man of affairs, was a member of select council from the Eleventh Ward for four years. Prior to that time he was a member of the board of control of the Fourth Ward, and also served as secretary of the section board for several years. Mr. Jacks is prominently identified with the various Masonic bodies. He is also a member of the governing board of the Y. M. C. A. since 1886, and of St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, of which he has been the financial secretary since 1888, as well as the teacher of the Young Men’s Bible Class. He is also a member of the Chamber of Commerce and the Rotary Club. On April 20, 1883, he married Remeta T., daughter of Charles H. and Caroline Y. Shoemaker, of Hummelstown, Pa.
