  • Notes 
    • King St. South

      In 1850 John Winger erected a building about half way between Gaukel and Foundry Streets and occupied the first floor as a factory. He used steam power, a novelty in those days, and pump had an old-fashioned upright engine built by Crombie & Co. of Galt. He made pumps, broom handles, etc. The second floor of the building was operated by Matthias Wegenast as a sash and door factory. Later there was a saw mill in the basement. Several acci-dents occurred in this saw mill; Helwig Scholl's leg was cut off as was also John Koch's arm, by the saw. Mr. Winger, apparently in difficulty with his creditors, suddenly left the village, after which the building was taken over by Martin Simpson, who had operated the Bowman & Correll factory at the east end of the town, and the building became known as the Simpson factory, the product being mostly furniture. At the rear of the Simpson factory stood a two storey frame building, used by W. H. Goetze, (cousin and brother-in-law of Louis Breithaupt) as a tobacco factory. Mr. Goetze came from New York early in the 60's. During the closing years of the American Civil War the factory found difficulty in getting tobacco, then mostly supplied from the Southern States.1a

      Helwig's burial place is in doubt. He most probably is buried in the House of Industry and Refuge cemetery. No obituary was found.
