William Henry Maule

William Henry Maule was born on April 14, 1828 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

He took over the operation of the lumber company started by his father and uncle and expanded into the seed business in 1877 originally catering to market gardeners and farmers who supplied local consumers with their fresh vegetables.

With the help of his son, the company grew into a prominent mail-order business.  He died on April 3, 1902 and has no living descendants.
