Raphael Kessler

I am trying to find information on a chemical plant, Kessler and Co. or Kessler Chemical Co. that was in Brandt or nearby that was, I believe run, by a Raphael Kessler. I know it burned down in 1908 and don't know if it was rebuilt. Raphael died in 1909. I think his son Raphael Jr., continued in the chemical business but I don't know where.
I am a historian of turn of the century furniture manufacturing and some of the companies I am researching bought lacquers from the Kessler Co., and I'm trying to find out how long the Kessler Co. was in business and what they specialized in. It would be fantastic if any advertising or brochures or anything else on the company is in someone's archive somewhere.
I have searched the Susquehanna County Historical Society website, and the website on Harmony, PA known as and I've poked at some of the genealogy sites. Mr. Kessler was apparently a Presbyterian Minister as well.
Thank you.
