can anyone tell me if those people employed at the fostoria glass plant got moved to Morgantown WV when the forstoria plant closed in 1891, or did they go to Moundsville WV? What happened to all the employees? where did they go? my grandfather came to fostoria from switzerland as a glass blower, His name was Joseph Lohry, he married Theresia Kafer. I know they also lived in Morgantown WV, but there is a big gap between Fostoria and Morgantown. I have a picture taken of them at a place called beckwith photography studio in Fostoria Oh abt 1906.Can anyone tell me when this studio closed etc. any info on Fostoria glass plant, Beckwith Studio and especailly the Lohry/Kafer surname would be appreciated. Were there any other glass plants in Fostoria other then the fortoria plant?
