Francis P. Hunsicker    

FRANCIS P. HUNSICKER, senior member of the firm of Hunsicker & Co., wholesale and retail cigar amid tobacco dealers was born in Heidelberg Township, Lehigh County, July 4, 1855, the son of Owen and Sarah (Bittner) Hunsicker. He was educated in the public schools and in the Weaversville Academy, Northampton County, Pa. In 1870 he came to Allentown and learned the cigar making trade, which he followed until 1876, when he engaged in the tobacco business where the Hersh hardware store is now located. In 1878 he removed to 781 Hamilton Street, and in 1911 to the Hunsicker building, a modern office structure of eleven stories at 17-19 North Seventh Street. From its inception the firm met with success and today enjoys the largest trade of any house in its line in Lehigh County. Besides being a very capable business man, Mr. Hunsicker is a public-spirited citizen. In 1896 he was elected to the board of control and faithfully served in that body until 1911, when the new school code affected a change. He was also elected one of the city’s nine controllers. He is a member of Salem Reformed Church and prominently identified with the following orders: Livingston Castle, No. 258, K. G. E.; St. Alban Commandery, No. 46, Knights of Malta; Camp No. 406, P. 0. 8. of A.; Franklin Chamber, No. 9, 0. K. of F.; Golden Chain Allen Temple, No. 90, L. K. G. E.; Royal Arcanum; Modern Woodmen of America. In 1876 he married Ella J., daughter of John and Regina Clauser, of Allentown.
