CHARLES H. GREGOIRE, a retired produce
dealer of Dubuque, has been in many ways connected with the growth and
development of this city. The record of his life goes to make up a part
of its history, for as an eminent writer has said, the history of a place
is best known in the lives of its citizens. The gentleman whose name heads
this record was born on the 10th of June 1821, in Ste. Genevieve County,
Mo., and is of French descent. His parents, Charles C. and Eulalia (Pratt)
Gregoire, were natives of Philadelphia, Pa., and Ste. Genevieve, Mo.,
respectively. In early life the grandfather of our subject also crossed
the ocean and took up his residence in Pennsylvania, whence he afterwards
came to Missouri. Their Charles C.'s death occurred in 1859, at the age
of sixty-three years.
The father of our subject was reared in Pennsylvania and Missouri. He
was educated in the district schools and early in life engaged in milling.
That business he followed until 1836, when he went to Illinois. The same
year he engaged in mining and smelting in Mineral Point, Wis., where he
continued operations along that line for two years. On the expiration
of that period he returned to Missouri, and for two years was engaged
in mining and smelting in that state. In 1853 he came to Dubuque with
his family, where he died in 1859, at the old homestead, where his son,
Charles H., resides. Our subject, Charles H., during the forty-one years,
which have, since passed, has been prominently identified with this city’s
business interests, and in his way has aided materially in its growth
Mr. Gregoire ran the first steam ferry on the river at Dubuque, carrying
on that business until 1864, when he sold out to the Illinois Central
Rail road. As his financial resources have increased he has made judicious
and extensive investments in real estate and now devotes his entire time
to looking after his property interests. Besides his property in Iowa
he now owns two hundred and eighty-nine acres of good mining land in Missouri.
In November 1849, Mr. Gregoire was joined in wedlock with Miss Mary Janis,
a native of Ste. Genevieve, Mo., and a daughter of Henry Janis, who was
born in that place, and became one of the early settlers of that state.
Three children were born of their union, two sons and a daughter, J. C.,
and Cyril H., who are prominent businessmen of Dubuque, and Ida, who is
at home. The parents are both members of the Catholic Church, and have
a pleasant home on Alpine Street. In his political views Mr. Gregoire
is a pronounced Democrat, unswerving in his allegiance to the prinples
of that party. His life has been a busy and useful one and as the result
of his well-directed efforts, perseverance, enterprise and good business
ability, he has arisen from a humble position to one of affluence.
