      Horace Salls was born in a brick house recently built by his father a short distance south of the small village of Clarenceville, Quebec, Canada, and directly across the road from the Henry Beerhort homestead built in 1833. At age 4 in 1867 he went to Burlington, VT. with his parents and lived there for the rest of his life with the exception of a period of 3 years 4 months (July, 1882 to December 1, 1885) when his parents bought and operated a large farm on Joy Hill, Quebec, Canada.

      On December 12, 1887, at age 24, he started out on a trip that was, for him, high adventure. He traveled west by boat and train on a northern route through Toronto and Chicago to Los Angeles, then back east on a southern route, through Houston and New Orleans, and arriving back in Burlington on February 29, 1888.

      Horace and Annette were married in the home of the bride in Colchester, VT. Carroll Morgan, their first son, was born in the apartment in the east end of the tenement block built and owned by Horace's father, Hiram, at the southeast corner of Grant & Clark Streets in Burlington.

      Horace was a roofing contractor and metal worker in Burlington for 60 years from 1887 to 1947. In servere winter weather he would keep busy in a variety of short time jobs in Burlington or take a vacation to a more congenial climate such as Florida. At age 35, in 1898, he built the house at 382 North Street in Burlington, where he and his wife lived until they died. In their later years, they were under the care of their daughter Grace.

      In March of 1931, Horace, at age 67, joined a world tour for travel to include the Mediterranean countries with Wilbur O. Spear and a group of Burlington businessmen.
