It was the early nineteenth century, and William Procter and JamesGamble - who had immigrated to the US from England and Ireland,respectively - were embarking on their own separate journeys west on theOhio River when the challenges of traveling led both of them to incinnati,Ohio, USA for relief. William stopped to care for his ailing wife, Martha,who soon died. James came seeking medical attention for himself.Cincinnati, a busy center of commerce and industry at that time, would become home for the unlikely partners. Content to settle in Cincinnati,William Procter quickly established himself as a candle maker. JamesGamble apprenticed himself as a soap maker.The two men's paths may have never crossed had they not married sisters- Olivia and Elizabeth Norris - whose father convinced his two sons-in-law to become business partners. In 1837, a humble but bold newenterprise called Procter & Gamble was born.
