Who’s Who In Arizona, 1913

Lemuel C. Shattuck, General Manager of the Shattuck Mine and President of the Miners and Merchants Bank, is a native of Erie, Pa., where he was born January 5, 1866. Mr. Shattuck was reared and educated in the vicinity of his birth and lived there until he was about seventeen years old.

His ancestors came to America and were among the very old settlers of the New England colonies, and from there his paternal great-great-grandfather removed to Pennsylvania. It has ever been characteristic of those who bore the name that they succeed in the lines to which they devoted their special energies and they have invariably been noted for enterprise and progress. Mr. Shattuck's maternal ancestors were among the early Holland settlers in Pennsylvania.

At the age of seventeen, when Mr. Shattuck started out to make an independent livelihood, he landed in a short time in what is now Cochise County, and for several years lived on the plains and in the mountains, handling cattle and dealing in water rights and ranches. He also devoted some of his time to prospecting. He reached Bisbee in 1888, worked in the Copper Queen mine where he remained until 1890, when he engaged in lumbering.

In the same year he was married to Miss Isabella Grenfell, and they have since made their home in Bisbee. Their family consists of four sons and two daughters.

In addition to the business associations above mentioned and his interests in Sonora, Mexico, Mr. Shattuck is President of the Cochise Development Company, Director in the Bisbee Improvement Company and the Bisbee-Naco Water Company, and Treasurer and Director of the Denn Arizona Company. He also served as member of the first City Council of Bisbee, and of the Board of Supervisors of Cochise County. Politically he is a Democrat, and he is an active member of the B. P. O. E.

Thirty years a resident of Arizona, the greater part of which has been spent in his present surroundings, and having seen the County of Cochise formed and develop into what it is today, Mr. Shattuck is rightfully reckoned one of the best informed men on all matters of importance of which Cochise can boast.
