Isaiah V. Williamson, born 1803 in Fallsington, apprenticed in the original store. There he learned the retail trade. He went on to found a dry goods business in Philadelphia. He became one of the richest men in the area and a major philanthropist.  In 1889, shortly before his death, he gave $2 million to found the Williamson Free School of Mechanical Trades, which continues today.
