Hi,
I am researching our Clark family from Philadelphia. According to census records, we have 3 generations that worked at a brickyard. I saw a post below referencing to a brickyard in Phila. Does anyone know if their was more then one in the late 1800's - early 1900's? Anywhere we can find records ont he employees?
Thanks,
Lori

My grand father H. Michener Siner inherited a brick yard from his father Horace Michener Siner which was operating probably from the late 1800s until the early 1930s when it went under during the depression. The company was called the H. M. and C. B. Siner Brick Company and my great grandfather was President. I have very little other information. The following link is to an article on the death of my great grandfather in 1929 (and references HM and CB Siner Brick company) in the Journal of the American Ceramic Society: www.blackwell-synergy.com/doi/pdf/10.1111/j.1151-2916.1929.t... -
Subscriptions are outrageously expensive, but I imagine that if you could research at the library of an institutional subscriber you could get a lot of info without paying the subscription rate.
