International Harvester wasn't formed until around 1902 when several of the largest harvester manufacturers combined. In the 1850's in Springfield you would have had William Whitely's Champion Company starting to employ men, and by 1882 he had built the East Street Works, which was the second largest manufacturing facility in the world. But there were many foundries, factories, and manufacturers springing up in Springfield in the middle of the 19th century.
