NAMPA- Paul Lockman, a prominent young man of Nampa, is reported missing from his company in France, according to word received by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Lockman, Thursday morning. The report states that he has been missing since September 29th.

Paul Lockman was a private in company L, 112th Infantry, and sailed for France August 10th. He is 23 years old, and was superintendant of the Overland Brewery Co. before leaving to join the colors.

Idaho Statesman 1/30/1906
After sinking a test well, which produced a large amount of soft water, Jacob Lockman, owner of the Sunset Brewing Co at Wallace, decided to locate a brewery in Nampa. There were other capitalists from Spokane and Seattle that invested in it.

5 residents of Shoshone County, including Jacob Lockman, incorporated to start a telephone service in Couer d'Alene.

The Champion Mining Company incorporated to develop claims at Horseshoe Bend in Nampa. Jacob Lockman is one of the directors.

Comet Mining Company incorporated, Jacob Lockman is one of the directors.

I see a story dated 1898 that refers to Jacob Lockman as being an ex-mayor in Shoshone County.
JACOB LOCKMAN stands at the head of one of
the larges establishments in Wallace, being manager
of the Sunset Brewing Company and part owner. He
is a keen business man and has manifested his ability
in the affairs of the company and in bringing to the
front the products of the brewery in a most successful
and popular manner.

Jacob Lockman was born in Germany on January
l 1857' being the son of Jacob and Rebecca (Pain)
Lockman, natives also of the fatherland. They came
to the United States in 1871, and the father died in
1894 in Benton county, Iowa, having been a farmer.
The mother died in Germany in 1902. Our subject
was reared and educated in Iowa, after coming to this
country, until 1876, when he went to the Black Hills
where he did butchering and mining. In 1880 he went



td southern Idaho, and in 1886 he came west to Butte,
Montana. He was engaged in various employments
for two years and then came to north Idaho, landing
in Wallace in 1889. He was engaged in the saloon
business with Thomas Mitchell until 1892 when he sold
that business and went into the bottling business and
handled ice. In 1897 he bought out his partner and
on January 1, 1901, he organized the Sunset Brewing
Company, of which David Holzman is president and
our subject is secretary, treasurer and manager. They
have the finest and largest brewery in the northern part
of the state, and it is equipped with the best and latest'
appliances for the manufacture of beer. They have an
excellent large ice plant and do a good business in
that line, as also they do in wholesaling liquors and
bar supplies. The beer made here is justly famous for
it is of the best to be found and rivals any made in the
United States. The plant is of ten thousand barrels
capacity per year. Mr. Lockman is the moving spirit
and really the head of this establishment, and it is due
to his wise skill and energy that such fine success has
crowned their efforts.

In 1893 Mr. Lockman married Miss Frieda, daugh-
ter of John Graf, a prominent farmer in Kootenai
county. Two children have been born to this union,
Paul, aged nine, and Tilden, aged seven. Mr. Lock-
man is a member of the B. P. O. E., Coeur d'Alene
Lodge, No. 331, being one of the organizers of the
order in Wallace. He is allied with the Democratic
party and is active in all campaigns. Mr. Lockman
has two brothers. John and Henry, living in the east.
