Hi Regina! Thanks so much!I knew these bottles existed and have looked at every garage sale and flea market I've passed for the last 10 years.I can't believe that one showed up on eBay!
The bottle belonged to Thomas H. Finan b.1850 in Chester,NY.(Father - Thomas V.? b.?1823 in Ireland) Thomas H. settled in Goshen, NY and owned a grocery store, hotel and bar, coal and ice co., bottling co.(not only soda I've heard), and a feed store.
Like a lot of us, I have many bits and pieces of history that I am trying to put together.
