Among the well known young men of integrity and honesty of purpose in Herkimer county, New York, is Albert L. Lottermoser, a partner in the Dolgeville News Company. He was born in Russia, on August 7, 1891, his parents being John, and Augusta (Theilhart) Lottermoser. His father and mother and six children came to America in 1896, and the following year settled in Dolgeville, New York, the subject of this sketch being six years of age at that time. John Lottermoser was born in Germany, on December 27, 1858, and is now living in Dolgeville, aged sixty-six years. He was associated with the Daniel Green Felt Shoe Company up to 1912, when he retired on account of his health. His wife was born in Germany, on December 24, 1860, and died in Dolgeville, on March 17, 1910.

Albert L. Lottermoser attended the public school in Dolgeville, but at the age of fourteen became an employe of the Daniel Green Felt Shoe Company and remained for three years, after which he entered the employ of Frost & Wright, grocers in Dolgeville, and was there as a clerk for one year. He then worked for the Dolgeville Felt Shoe Company for two years, then became associated with the Dolgeville branch of the Utica Gas and Electric Light Company for six years, the last four of which he was operator of the power station. In 1917 a partnership with F. J. Younker was formed, for the sale of cigars, stationery and periodicals. In 1923 Mr. Younker retired from partnership and The Dolgeville News Corporation was formed, William F. Trumpowsky, Jr., becoming associated with Mr. Lottermoser in the business.

On November 29, 1922, in Utica, New York, Mr. Lottermoser was united in marriage to Miss Myrtle E. Waugh. She was born on May 26, 1892, at Scriba, New York, and is one of three children born to Fred A. and Mary (DeLancy) Waugh. Fred A. Waugh, a farmer, was born on August 12, 1852, and died at Scriba, in October, 1921. His wife was born on March 22, 1857, and is now living with her daughter, Miss Ella Waugh, a teacher in a deaf and dumb school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Mrs. Lottermoser is a member of the Universalist church of Dolgeville and a member of Auskerada Chapter, No. 204, O. E. S.

From 1919 to 1922 Mr. Lottermoser was treasurer of the village of Dolgeville and was reelected in 1924 for one year more. In November, 1923, he was elected justice of the peace to serve for two years. He is a member of Dolgeville Lodge, No. 796, F & A. M.; Oriental Chapter, No. 1305, R. A. M.; and Dolgeville Lodge, No. 137, I. O. O. F. He has been a member of Gen. J. P. Spofford Hose Company, No. 2, Volunteer department for ten years, and during that time served as chief for one year. He also holds membership in Ongowanda and Exchange Clubs. In politics he is a democrat and finds his diversion in outdoor sports. Mr. Lottermoser may indeed be said to be a self-made man and stands high in Dolgeville as a citizen and promising young man.
