Ezra Hasbrouck was born in Coxsackie, New York back in 1865 to Roswell and Margaretta. Sorry but I don’t have any information other than shortly after his birth his mother died. He married Sarah in 1897. For a short time, he was a real estate developer in Kingston, New York. By all accounts he was restless and sitting behind a desk did not work for him.
What he did enjoy was the outdoors, fishing in the Catskills, climbing the Adirondacks were just a few things he enjoyed. When David opened a store, Ezra was one of his most devoted customers. In 1900, he bought a major share in that store. By 1907, David and Ezra did not get along so David sold the store to Ezra and as they say the rest is history. Any clue on who I am writing about yet? Ezra died in Santa Barbara, California in 1930, he was 64.
What you may not know about Ezra Hasbrouck Fitch is that when he partnered with David Abercrombie they opened Abercrombie & Fitch. Now you know the rest of the story.
