Edward Stine

Edward Stine, the well-known undertaker and early resident of Kansas City, was born in Jonestown, Pennsylvania, January 2, 1833.  Between the ages of six and sixteen he lived on a farm, and acquired a common school education in the district school.  He was apprenticed, when six-teen years old, to a cabinet-maker at Harrisburg, Pa.  After serving four years, he accumulated his first capital, and was married October 2, 1856, to Emma L. Coleman.

     In March, 1858, Mr. Stine came to Kansas City.  For thirty-three years he was with Henning & Co., furniture dealers.  He began business for himself in December, 1861, doing cabinet work and undertaking.  In 1878 his son William F.
