"Sale of Kulage Brick Works"

A couple of mildly interesting items. Only mildly.

(Click on images to enlarge)

First we get a little Crisman genealogy — so this Thomas Crisman was the brother of the John Crisman whose house I just missed photographing.

And then we see the Kulage brickyard changing ownership, though not name. An earlier report by the Gazette said that the new owner(s) had incorporated the Kulage Clay Product Co. to run the business.

The Gazette commented on Andrew Melin's service to the brickyard over the course of his 33 years there so far. His position as superintendent involved much responsibility, including detailed record- and bookkeeping. He was accustomed to get up at 4:30 a.m. to be on the job bright and early, and after a full day often worked into the evening as well. So the change of ownership and the expected shifting of some duties came as something of a relief to Andrew and his family.

Also, Hobart needs a new substitute mail carrier.
