Death of Joseph Bachman

Joseph Bachman, who will be remembered by the older men in the trade as one of its former most prominent and respected merchants, died at his home, 54 W. 77th St., last Sunday. He was 91 years old. Many years ago he was in business for himself on Grand St., and later at 3 Maiden Lane, under the style of Joseph Bachman & Co. Later, until about four years ago, he was connected with the Gorham Co. The funeral services were held at Temple Emanu-El yesterday, of which congregation the deceased was a member. Surviving are four daughters and two sons. Mr. Bachman leaves many friends in the jewelry trade who deeply regret his demise.
