    I get a great deal of satisfaction this hobby when things sort of "come together". Remember when I post this check?

    ==>> well recently I found this check; with one of William Broadhead's son (Sheldon B. Broadhead) as Treasurer and another son (Almet Broadhead) as signer of the check. :) Oh, another Broadhead family enterprise was the Jamestown Street Railway :)

    I stumbled across this site today, looking for info on the web for the printing/stationers company that my great-grandfather, Edwin Bennett Young, founded in Baltimore in 1888. It advertised itself as doing printing for presidents, at least from McKinley through Harding. My great-grandfather died in 1944, his son in 1964, and I think the company was (or had been) absorbed by another company in the 60s.

    Who is the payee? McGinnis Brothers and ? Have you tried to google them to see what kind of business they were? If you can make out the last name. Gearing? Bearing? Pretty neat.
