LG,there was a foundry there called Durham Furnace,established around 1727.My ancestor,James Morgan, started there as a charcoal burner and then later became an IronMaster and part owner.It was still running at his death in 1782.However,as I understand,there were 2 other founderies in Durham at the time,one or both across the Delaware River.wish I could be of more help.Good luck in your hunt!...Brenda
