Claus Doscher appears in the 1862 New York City directory as a grocer, using 241 Washington St., though this was actually his home address and his business was located at 305 Washington. By 1863 he had become a liquor dealer as well as a grocer. The 1864 directory lists his business locations as both 241 and 305 Washington Street.
