    The Google reference that led me to this site mentioned a company called Wilson-Martin in 1932. I am interested in knowing any further information you might have about that company. My father was Gabriel J. Wilson. I believe he was a partner in it. Thank you for whatever you might discover for me.

    There was a Wilson-Martin Chemical Company located in Northeast Philadelphia, on River Road North of the Tacony bridge in the late 1900s. The company was a money looser and changed hands several times. The last owner that I know of was a meat company. It is no longer there.
