There is an article online about the beginnings of the Taylor Fire Department which mentions several names (one of them my g-grandfather Casper OTT): John von Weisenfluh, John Weber, Melchoir Rufibach, Melchoir Fluhman, John S. Weibel, Casper Frutiger, Melchoir Fluehman (same as above?), John Strein, Henry Weisenfluh, John Schield, Peter Schield and several more. It talks about the Swiss and German people to who together to get a fire brigade/department started in 1894.
It's a really nice article, and I am providing the link to it but if it's gone by the time you see it please let me know as I've saved a copy and can email it to anyone interested.
