For the second time, I've been lucky enough to find an obituary in a trade journal. Who knew that the brick making industry in 1900 had a journal called "The Clay Worker" that was international in scope? Theodore Randall began publishing the journal in 1884 and continued for more than 40 years. It was just the place to find information on Ed's ancestor who had a brick making business in Philadelphia for many years.
Henry was the founder and proprietor of the H. C. Carroll & Sons Brickworks in Philadelphia. His sons Michael, Eugene and Peter took over the business from their father.
