|Biography and History||
Isaac Haughwout (1812-1903), a shoemaker and carpenter, lived most of his life on Staten Island. For many years his home was in a house that he built at 219 Union Avenue in Mariners Harbor. His biography noted that he resided for a few years in Michigan; perhaps he resided with his son James, who lived in that state.
This photograph is part of a collection of materials given to the Staten Island Historical Society in 1938 by Emma Butts, granddaughter of Isaac Haughwout.
