Charles Ott.
CHRISTIAN M. OTT, proprietor of the Olathe Roller Flour Mills, was born in Germany, October 31, 1835; came to America in 1849, and resided in Alton, Ill., where he learned the trade of baker and confectioner serving an apprenticeship of four years. He then worked at his trade in New Orleans until the spring of 1857, when he came to Kansas, and was for a short time engaged in the bakery business in Independence, Mo. He then opened a bakery and grocery store in Olathe, conducting it for twelve years. In 1868 he built his present mills and has run them, except for three years, since. He has just added rollers, which are machinery for making new process flour. The engine has the capacity of fifty-horse power, and the mill consumes 500 bushels of wheat daily. In 1873 Mr. Ott also opened a furniture factory and store at Ottawa, Kas., in company with A. Gottschalk. His interest in this is managed by his son Henry. Mr. O. was married in Olathe, in September, 1860, to Justina Schieve. They have four children--Henry, Albert, Charles and Emma.

Albert Ott.

Authors note.  Charles and Albert established a Groceries, Queens ware, Meat market and Bakery in Olathe, Kansas, in 1891, called Ott Brothers
