Re: Ashton Valve Co. 1871

1877, the company first incorporated in Hartford CT. I recently was able to obtain a copy of the letter from the Hartford Daily Courant which is attached below along with a photo of one of the first stock certificates.

Re: Ashton Valve Co. 1871

I recently picked up an old Ashton pop safety valve. The tag reads Crosby-Ashton, Wrentham Mass so I can date the valve to some time after 1948, when the company had merged with Crosby and moved out of Cambridge to Wrentham.
