Otto began life in Texas, was soon moved to Louisiana, and by 1900 resided in Napa, Califoria, with his parents.  He met Bertha there.  Once married, they moved to nearby Vallejo.  Otto worked at fruit farming and by 1910 he had a fruit stand.  Successful as a fruit merchant, the fruit stand evolved into a grocery store.  By 1940 Otto and Bertha were both classified as Proprietor (Source 1530).

Otto passed away in 1954 at the age of 77.
