The following information was taken from a paper with the following heading:
THE WINDBER ERA, Industrial Edition, Volume II, Windber, PA. December 1900,
Supplement, Illustrated Edition. Scalp Level and Paint Borough section, John
John Estep was born in England in 1852, and came with his parents to this
country in 1856. The family located in Bloomsburg, Columbia County, where he
attended the public schools a short time, and at the age of seven years, owing
to the distressing conditions of the laboring people at that time, entered the
ore mines near that place.
A few years later the family removed to Tioga County, where Mr. Estep,
though still a boy, entered the Fallbrook coal mines, and removed from there to
Brisbin, Clearfield County where he continued his work as a miner. In 1890 he
moved to Johnstown, where he engaged in the same business. In 1897 he removed
to Scalp Level and engaged in the hotel business, becoming proprietor of the
"Miners Home." The hotel is located on the "Pike," near the line. It is a
handsome and attractive edifice, two stories and a basement floor, containing
23 rooms, heated by steam and lighted by gas. The table is supplied with the
best in the market, and the bar is stocked with the best brands of wines and
The best evidence of the comfort and convenience of the hotel is found in
Mr. Estep's leading and popular trade.
Mr. Estep was married in 1872 to Miss Annie Alsop of Fallbrook, Tioga
County. Thirteen children have been born to them. Three of whom are dead,
seven girls and three boys survive.
Both energetic and enterprising, Mr. Estep, from humble beginings, has
taught again the story that should be impressed on the minds of the rising
generation that grit and go are certain to bring sucess. Mr. Estep is a
popular landlord, and a gentleman, coming from the people, and whose personal
intregrity and high character have placed him among the foremost business men
and citizens of the community.
