FRANCIS E. McKENZIE

The immediate subject of this notice is manager of Henry's Law and Collection Company, at No. 606 I street, Sacramento, Cal., one of the oldest and most reliable institutions of its kind in the city. Francis E. McKenzie was born at London, Ontario, Canada, July 14, 1880. His father, Roderick McKenzie, was a pioneer there, and represented one of the old and honored families of that province; and his mother, Jane (Simmons) McKenzie, was descended from ancestors of high social and business standing.

In the public school and high school of his native city, Mr. McKenzie was carefully educated. His first venture into business life was in connection with the enterprise of one of the leading wholesale clothing concerns of London, and his career at Sacramento dates from the year 1899. In the year last mentioned Mr. McKenzie became identified with Henry's Law and Collection Company, for the management of which he showed a peculiar adaptability that early marked him for the success he has achieved. In 1909 he purchased the business, and since then has been the sole owner. In 1906 he married Miss Annie Davies, of Florin, Sacramento county. Fraternally he affiliates with the Elks.
