Notes on the SMITH BROTHERS
24. ANDREW and WILLIAM SMITH (1836-1894 & 1830-1913)
Andrew and William Smith, two brothers born in Poughkeepsie, wereco-founders of the Smith Brothers Cough Drop Company after inventing thethroat lozenge. They derived their secret recipe from their father, JamesSMITH, who was a candy maker. The packaging of the drops, or 'coughcandy,' propelled the two brothers into both financial success andpersonal celebrity. The images of the two brothers with their famousbeards were cut into woodblocks, reproduced in line drawings, and placedon the cardboard boxes of their licorice drops. The two portraits of themen were placed above the words 'trade' and 'mark' which appeared asnames underneath each brother; William and Andrew thus appeared to benamed Trade and Mark Smith to many customers. This trademark, registeredin 1877, is one of the oldest and most famous in America. William or'Trade,' was known as an eccentric man who was the dominant figure in thebusiness and became a militant prohibitionist. Andrew or 'Mark,' nevermarried and gained a reputation of being free with his money,consequently earning the nickname 'Easy Mark.' William is buried insection 13 . The Smith Brothers Cough Drop Company was sold toWarner-Lambert Pharmaceuticals in 1963.
==========
SMITH BROTHERS HISTORY
Smith Brothers Cough Drop packaging portrays one of the world’s mostfamous trademarks. The two bearded gentlemen who distinguish it,affectionately known to generations as Trade and Mark, are legendary. Notwell known, however, is the fact that the Smith Brothers really existed.Their names were William (Trade) and Andrew (Mark) and they helped foundSmith Brothers in Poughkeepsie, New York in 1847.
William and Andrew were sons of James Smith who moved to Poughkeepsiefrom St. Armand, Quebec in 1847 to establish a restaurant. Though Jameswas a fine carpenter by trade, he was an even better candy maker and abusinessman. The story of the birth of the first Cough Drop is a goodexample. As that story goes, a journeyman stopped at the Smith restaurantand gave James the formula for a delicious and effective cough candy.James saw a need for such a product in the cold, windswept Hudson Valleyand immediately mixed up a batch on his kitchen stove.

The Drops were a quick success and demand for the 'cough candy' grewfast up and down the river. Only a few years later, in 1852, the firm’sfirst advertisement appeared in the Poughkeepsie paper, inviting all'afflicted with hoarseness, cough or colds' to test it.

Young William and Andrew were active in the new business from the start.They helped mix the family secret formula in their father’s kitchen andbusily sold the product in the streets of Poughkeepsie. The two boysinherited the fast growing business on the father’s death in 1866, andthe company officially became known as Smith Brothers.

As sales grew throughout the Hudson Valley, this success was met with awhole flurry of imitators-'Schmitt Brothers', 'Smythe Sisters' and evenother 'Smith Brothers' appeared with imitative product. The real SmithBrothers, by this time having long, flowing beards, decided to placetheir own pictures on their product packaging, which consisted of glassbowls for a counter display and small envelopes into which the shopkeepercounted the Smith Brothers Cough Drops for each sale.

By chance, the word 'Trade' appeared under the picture of William and theword 'Mark' under that of Andrew. Thus, it happened by a mere coincidencethat the famous Smith Brothers’ trademark was born and the Smith Brothersbecame known to generations of Americans as Trade and Mark.
The glass bowl and envelopes then in use, had definite limitations. Forone thing, the Smith Brothers could not be sure that only genuine SmithBrothers Cough Drops would be sold in envelopes which bore theirpictures, so in 1872 the brothers developed a package bearing theirlikenesses, which was filled under their own personal supervision. Thispackage was one of the first 'factory filled' packages ever developed.Andrew (Mark) died in 1895 but William (Trade) continued as President ofSmith Brothers almost up to his death in 1913. He was succeeded by hisson, Arthur G. Smith, under whose direction the company continued toprosper. Menthol Cough Drops were added in 1922, a cough syrup in 1926and the famous Smith Brothers Wild Cherry Flavor in 1948.
Arthur had two sons, William W. II and Robert, who carried on the fourthgenerations of Smiths in the company. The family continued as sole ownersof the Company until 1964. F&F acquired Smith Brothers in 1977 fromWarner Lambert.
============. She was born on 18 November 1916 at Brooklyn, Kings County, New York. She was the daughter of RICHARD CHRISTOPHER LANCASTER and MIRIAM RUSSELL. KATHERINE LANCASTER married an unknown person on 6 June 1945 at Ft. Lincoln Cemetery, Bladensburg, Prince Georges County, Maryland. She died on 27 March 1959 at Mamaroneck, Westchester County, New York, at age 42.

The firm TOLAND & HUNSTABLE continued until 1837, when the firm of A.TOLMAN & CO. was formed, composed of A. Tolman and G. W. Russell,
Which continued forty years. Their work for many years was themanufacture of first-class family carriages, which they sent all over theworld, some of them going to California, and even to Africa andAustralia. Mr. Tolman once built a carriage for Mrs. Governor Duncan, ofOhio, before the days of railroad communication; it was shipped to NewOrleans, and from there went up the Ohio River to its destination. Laterhundreds of carriages came from Ohio to the East by rail.
Page 186-188
In 1851, the carriage business in Worcester supported about fiftyfamilies. The largest factory was that of TOLMAN & RUSSELL; it embracedsome half-dozen buildings and gave employment to twenty-five hands. Mostof their carriages were of the more expensive kind. At this time theywere finishing three, one for the Adams House, Boston; one for a NewBedford merchant, and one for Mr. White, of Worcester, 'the attentive andobliging hackman, whom everybody knows and everybody employs.'
Besides these heavier carriages, TOLMAN & RUSSELL manufactured a greatmany lighter vehicles of various patterns and prices, such as chaises,phaetons, rockaways and buggies. It is said that the members of thisfirm at one time refused to take a large contract from the Government forthe supply of army wagons for the use of the army during the Mexican War,solely on the ground that they believed the war to be unjust and did notwish to participate in the profits of such injustice. The averagenumber of vehicles manufactured by TOLMAN & RUSSELL at this time wasabout one hundred per year.
For some time prior to 1889 TOLMAN & RUSSELL confined themselves almostentirely to the manufacture of hearses, which found a market in all partsof the United States. Mr. Tolman retired from the firm in 1879. Thebusiness was then conducted by H. J. & J. E. Russell and now by HerbertJ. Russell at the old location, 32 Exchange Street. Under the oldapprentice system in this business, boys were taken from fifteen totwenty-one years of age, and were paid from thirty to fifty dollars ayear and their board. They bought their own clothes and the last year oftheir apprenticeship were paid seventy-five dollars, which included a'freedom suit.' About 1830 the working day averaged from twelve tothirteen hours, and all the work was hand-work, down to the rivets andbolts. The average wages of a good workman, $1.25 per day.
As late as 1866, a good many carriages were made by O. Blood & sons,TOLMAN & RUSSELL and Geo. T. Atchison, who also built water carts.

re: 3 OBITUARIES (RUSSELL/LANCASTER GENEALOGY PROJECT)
I am trying to locate three obituaries for my relatives who resided inMAMARONECK, NY.
I wondered if your library might have them on microfilm.

(wife of Prof. Hillier Krieghbaum - res. 335 River St. Mamaroneck, NY

3) MIRIAM RUSSELL LANCASTER (mother and grandmother of above) b. 1887Worcester MA d. July 10, 1979 Cabrini Nursing Home in Dobbs Ferry, NY.(resided for many years at 731 River St. Mamaroneck, NY.)
I am trying to learn from these obituaries where KATHERINE, KATHERINE,jr., and Prof. H. HILLIER KRIEGHBAUM are buried
in area.
Prof. KRIEGHBAUM died in 1993 in Indiana but was told by a formerneighbor that all three are in a cemetery that was exactly 40 milesroundtrip from their home at 731 River Street. Have tried GOOGLE mapsearch and cannot find anything that was that mileage.
MIRIAM RUSSELL LANCASTER was my grandfather's sister.
Thanks for your help.

MEMORIES OF CONANICUT ISLAND

One summer when SALLY was about 10, (circa 1929) she, her mother, DICK,and FRANK went to Conanicut Island in Narragansett Bay. It was midwaybetween Newport, R. E. and Jamestown, R. I. It was accessible only byferries from either town. MRS. RUSSELL was taking singing lessons fromMISS KATE MITCHELL who lived on Ceder St., Worc.

MISS MITCHELL owned a summer home on the island. (Her home had been thesummer home of a former gov. of R. I.)
MRS. RUSSELL rented the cottage across the road from MISS MITCHELL. MISSKATE'S sister or sister -in-law also lived there as did PAMELA, a girlabout SALLY's age.
That summer PAULINA LONGWORTH, daughter of Speaker of House and ANNAROOSEVELT LONGWORTH came to stay with the MITCHELL's. I don't recallexactly what had happened, but I believe that there had been a kidnappingthreat against PAULINA, so the family brought her to stay with theMITCHELL's.
I visited SALLY for two weeks when MR. RUSSELL went down for hisvacation. We used to dig for clams, go swimming, picnicing onBeavertail, and horseback riding. At the very end of the island, was alighthouse operated by Capt. NEWTON. He had a daughter, HELEN, who wasour age so we were able to climb up in the light house and see how itoperated. She had a beautiful play house that all four of us, PAMELA,SALLY, HELEN and I used to play in. There was a lookout tower on top ofthe MITCHELL's house. We would sleep up there and watch the boats out inthe harbor at night and pretend that they were rum-runners. We had toempty the chamber pots every morning -- there weren't modern bathfacitilites -- and I remember SALLY and I dumped ours out our bedroomwindow one morning. Either DICK or FRANK told on us, so we never pulledthat prank again.

NEW MACHINERY FOR THE SPRING INDUSTRY
Vice president and sales manager FRANK S. RUSSELL (left) ofSLEEPER-HARTLEY, INC., points out an innovation in the firms new torsionspring machine to co-inventor ELMER W. HALVORSEN, chief design engineer.The machine, most radical in the industry since 1912, was introduced tomanufacturers this week.

Webster's International Dictionary defines 'offspring' as 'thatwhich springs from an animal or an individual producing its kind.' Underthe basic word 'spring' is found 'a device that recovers its originalshape when released after being distorted.'
Both apply to a sleek looking new machine, technically called No. 1-Torsion Spring Machine, series 731, introduced this week bySLEEPER-HARTLEY Inc., 355 Chandler St. It is a producer of springs andis the invention of an 'offspring.'
FRANK SLEEPER RUSSELL, a grandson of the company's founder FRANK H.SLEEPER, joined with the plant's chief design engineer, ELMER W.HALVORSEN, in developing the new torsion spring coiling machine.
MANY DIFFERENT IDEAS
RUSSELL, who credits HALVORSEN with much of the innovation, saidthey 'worked together every step of the way.' It is the accumulation ofmany different ideas over the years and the result of 5 years on thedesigning boards.
The chief engineer pointed out that although the design element isnot in itself radical, the basic pattern is entirely new. It has thepossibility of increasing production on some jobs as much as 50 per cent.
Four major improvements have been made over machines currently beginproduced domestically and abroad. The drive system for the winding headwas developed to allow for more time in end-forming operations. Thisprocedure which provided attachments for torsion springs has been thebiggest in the industry to date, according to RUSSELL.
GREATER ACCURACY
Second, an innovation in the forming table now permits a greatervariety of motions using standard fixtures. This will enable the moreintricate forming work to be done by the machine, eliminating the needfor improvising by hand.
Greater accuracy in obtaining closer tolerance has been achieved bythe addition of a new feed mechanism and by simplifying drive to reducegear backlash.
RUSSELL states that he machine will eliminate costly handoperations. He says, 'It is the most radically improved standard springmachine in the world since my grandfather invented and produced theoriginal torsion spring coiling machine in 1912.'
This week the machine, which is priced at under $7,000, will beshown to eastern spring manufactures in advance of a formal introductionat the Spring Manufacturers' show in Chicago during the latter part ofOctober.
Co-inventor HALVORSEN, who has several patents to his name, has beenwith SLEEPER-HARTLEY for more than 20 years. He is a native of upper NewYork State but presently resides in Palmer.
FIRST PATENT
For RUSSELL, of 303 Lovell Road, Holden, this is his first patent.Born in Worcester, he attended both Worcester Academy and DartmouthCollege. A history student, he said his '13 years experience' in allphases of the plant provided the background and 'desire to see a newmachine developed.'
'My grandfather had over 500 patents to his name and I am proud tohave added something to his original work,' the vice president and salesmanager turned-inventor added.

ACTON - excerpt from pages 263 and 264.

RALPH WALDO EMERSON'S ADDRESS - at the 2nd centennial anniversary of theincorporation of the town of Concord, September 12, 1835, ten of thesurviving veterans who were in the arms at the Bridge on the 19th ofApril, 1775, honored the festival with their presence;
four of the ten were from Acton - THOMAS THORP, SOLOMON SMITH, JOHNOLIVER, AARON JONES.

RALPH WALDO EMERSON, the orator of that day, thus speaks of these men:

'The presence of these aged men, who were in arms on that day, seems tobring us nearer to it. The benignant Providence which has prolongedtheir lives to this hour, gratifies the strong curiosity of the newgeneration. The Pilgrims are gone; but we see what manner of personsthey were who stood in the worst perils of the Revolution. We hold bythe hand the last of the invincible men of old, and confirm from livinglips the sealed records of time. And you, my fathers, whom God and thehistory of your country have ennobled, may well bear a chief part inkeeping this peaceful birthday of our town. You are indeed extraordinaryheroes. If ever men in arms had a spotless cause, you had. You havefought a good fight. And having quit you like men in the battle, youhave quit yourselves like men in your virtuous families, in yourcorn-fields, and in society.
'We will not hide your honorable gray hairs under perishing laurelleaves, but the eye of affections and veneration follows you. You areset apart, and forever, for the esteem and gratitude of the human race.To you belongs a better badge than stars and ribbons. This prosperingcountry is your ornament, and this expanding nation is multiplying yourpraise with millions of tongues.'
