In my line of work, I come across a lot of historical information which may (or may not) be helpful to you. Here is some info on Ryerson of Ridgewood, NJ:

*In 1888, Edward F. Ryerson established his first coal yards, the Edward F. Ryerson Coal Company, on Rock Avenue in Ridgewood. One year later, Ryerson moved his establishment to the current location along the railroad tracks, just north of Franklin Avenue. In 1897, George W. Young and Richard Bortic became the successors to Ryerson’s establishment and changed the name to the Young & Bortic Coal Company, which later became the Young and Bortic Fuel Company. Young & Bortic sold anthracite coal, blacksmith coal, kindling wood, and Pratt’s food for poultry, horses, and cattle.*
