1880s Glass Industry in Parker Co.

Can anyone provide information about glass production in or around Parker County in the 1880s?

My father's family was involved in the glass industry for at least 100 years (roughly 1850 to 1950). From census records I have found that they moved around quite a bit, basically to and from locations where there was a strong glass industry, such as West Virginia, Indiana, Ohio. In the 1880 census, several members of the family, including my gggrandfather, John B. Everett, and his father, John C. Everett, are in Parker Co. Their occupations are all listed as glassblower. To complete my family story I would like to know about any companies they may have worked for.
