Seller: mpannill2012 (222) 100%, Location: Waxahachie, Texas, Ships to: US, Item: 302146997115 Laclede Firebrick Manufacturing Company, St. Louis, Missouri The plant was established in 1844, its location then being far from the city of St. Louis, the district being known at that as the village of Cheltenham. The first products were firebrick and tile. In those early days fire brick was made by hand. It is due, however, to the efforts of James Green that the works have attained their present magnitude. Mr. Green is now a well-known manufacturer and capitalist in St. Louis. He was born in Staffordshire, England, in 1829, coming to this country in 1852, armed with capital, a thoroughly acquired trade, business acumen and abundant energy. He worked at first in the rolling-mills and furnaces in the East. In 1857 he arrived in St. Louis, and was 17 years with the Laclede Rolling Mills. In 1865 Mr. Green took hold of the clay manufacturing enterprise and in 1869 the Laclede Firebrick Manufacturing Co. was incorporated. In 1904 Mr. Green was president of the corporation and was always the controlling factor.
