Charles traveled with 2 cows to farmland in
the Pittsburgh suburb of Penn Hills, about 10 miles
east of the city.
Its there he met Grace Frye and the two
worked out an agreement so Charles would rent
Grace’s farmland for the dairy for the cost of the
taxes on the land.
Grace went on to become Charles first

became known for his high quality milk.
