Mr Kohn was born at Kohmar, Germany, in 1847, and arrived in Christchurch forty-eight years ago. He was in business for some time in Auckland. Twenty years ago he acquired the business of Messrs Petersen and Co. He was of a retiring disposition, taking no part in public affairs. Among his friends he was very popular.
