GEORGE SALOT, real-estate and insurance
agent and abstracter of titles of Dubuque, was born in Aibre, Department
du Doubs, France, March 15, 1837. He was educated in he public schools
of his native country and there spent the days of his boyhood and youth
until 1853, when he bade adieu to home and friends and sailed for America.
He was accompanied by his mother and when the journey across the Atlantic
was accomplished, landed at New Orleans. They came at once to the west
and located upon a farm near Dubuque, but agricultural pursuits were not
according to his tastes. In consequence Mr. Salot engaged in the mercantile
business in the village of Buncombe, Dubuque county, establishing a general
country store, which he carried on successfully for a period of eleven
years. He then sold out and embarked in the real estate and abstract business
in Dubuque, associating himself in the enterprise with A. Cain. This connection
was continued for one year.
In 1869 Mr. Salot entered upon official duties, having been appointed
City Recorder to fill a vacancy. The following year he was appointed Harbor
Master, and in 1872 he was appointed Deputy Sheriff by E. G. Young, thus
serving during Mr. Young's term and also under his successor, Michael
Liddy, also under Mr. Ferring. In the discharge of his public duties he
continued until 1882, when he retired from office and again engaged in
the real-estate, insurance and abstract business. He has erected a fine
brick block known as the Salot Block at 715 Clay Street, opposite the
Court House, and in this is located his office. As a real-estate agent
he deals in both city and farm property. Along the line of Insurance he
represents both home and foreign companies. He also makes loans on farm
property in Iowa and has a complete set of abstract books of Dubuque County.
February 2, 1860, was celebrated the marriage of Mr. Salot and Miss Catharine
Scheibler, of Dubuque County, a native of Pennsylvania, and a daughter
of William Scheibler. By their union have been born six children, four
sons and two daughters, namely: George W., now of Chicago. William H.;
Harry P., who assists his father in the office, Howard E., who attended
the high school; Maggie, now Mrs. C. E. Goux, of Detroit, Mich.; and Manon
B., who is yet in school. The family is widely and favorably known in
the community and its representatives rank high in the social circles
in which they moves. Mr. Salot is a self-made man, who started out in
life for himself empty-handed, and his business career and the success
which he has achieved are entirely due to his own efforts.
