J. P. Daggett
P. DAGGETT has been
a resident of Fort Worth
over half a century,
having been born in
Tarrant County in 1855.
i All his life he has been
interested in the cattle business for
which Texas is famous. Reared in
the days when there were no schools
in this part of the country he is a
self-made man in a greater sense
than most of the successful men of
affairs who have that distinction.
Not only is his success self-made
but it has not been worked out under
the direction of others, Mr. Daggett
never worked for any man in his life.
Mapping out his own affairs, he has
always been prominent in the cattle
trade both as a ranchman and as a
livestock dealer. He is perhaps the
oldest customer of the Fort Worth
National Bank, having done business
with the one institution for 35 years.
Mr. Daggett is fond of automobiling,
being one of the early converts
to the automobile in Texas. He has
already owned four cars, all Buicks.
He is a member of the Elks. He is
of Scotch-Irish descent and a Democrat,
the son of Charles B. and Mary
A. Daggett, his father coming from
Queenstown, Canada, and his
mother from Marine, Ill. In 1892,
he married Miss Stella E. Zahn. In
all the time he has been a resident of
Fort Worth his belief in its ultimate
commercial success never has wavered
and he has always been an
active supporter of the movements
that have assisted in bringing it to
its present prominent position
among the municipalities of Texas.
