Grain merchant.

Born in York County, Ontario on 13 October 1856, son of Aaron and Mary Jakeway, he was educated at Ontario public schools then came to Winnipeg in 1880, and entered the employ of the Patterson Brothers Implement Company. He also had an interest in farm lands and city real estate. By 1911, he was Secretary with the Northern Elevator Company, based in Winnipeg. On 26 June 1902, he married Elizabeth Jane Platt (?-?) at Winnipeg and they lived at 243 River Avenue. He was a member of the Carleton Club, W.O.W., Liberal party, and Methodist church. His recreations included horses and skating. He moved to California in mid-1918 and his later whereabouts are unknown.
