Isaac H. Cox Bernalillo County, New Mexico

Isaac H. Cox, president of the Standard Plumbing and Heating Company, of Albuquerque, is a native of Iowa, where he learned the plumber's trade. In 1886 he located in San Diego, California, where he remained in business until 1894, when he established himself in Albuquerque. For six years he had as a partner Henry Brockmeier, under the firm style of Brockmeier & Cox. He was also for a time a stockholder in the firm of J. L. Bell & Co., but disposed of his interests in that concern in June, 1904, when he organized the Standard Plumbing and Heating Company, with Wallace Hesselden as a partner. This concern is one of the most widely known of the character in New Mexico, and has done much of the best work in Albuquerque, having now a large patronage, which is a fruitful source of success.
