In 1922 Cunningham was producing Stone Fizz bottles....

There is also a mention of a bottling company in Birmingham who just installed new machinery and can put out more Stone Fizz, but these ads tend to overwhelm that blurb, as they are far more numerous in that issue of American Bottler.

Seems the company may have gotten their start in Delaware in 1919....

Not really, they actually incorporated in Delaware, because as like today there are no income taxes charged to corporations who incorporate, but aren't located in Delaware physically.

The Stone Fizz Co. of America, Inc. with $750,000 capital to manufacture non-alchoholic drugs. incorporated in Deleware-The Chemical, Color & Oil Daily December 24, 1919

Unfortunately no officers were mentioned in that incorporation announcement.

I was able to snag another ad for the brand from my Google search.

This is that logansport link that kept coming up but was on one of those newspaper archive pay sites.

The name John A. Murkin keeps coming up related to Chattanooga, Tennessee in the 1920s and 1930s. I'm not sure if that's your guy but I doubt the name Murkin was all that common in Chattanooga in the 1920s-30s. Anyhoo, I came across this 1930 book he was involved with and thought you might be interested in it.

He was Jacob Walter Bishop, did a search on him, but found very little as well.

P.S. ~

Ancestry.com has various listings for Jacob Walter Bishop, including census and draft records and possibly a directory or two. But because I am not currently signed up with the site I was unable to view them. However, I have used it in the past and it only cost $20.00 for a 30 day temporary membership.

By the way, Jacob's father was William Bruce Bishop.

I really want more on the company rather than the man. I generally don't get into the personal lives of the owners of these companies unless they are within my local area, and only then because they may have connections to other companies in the area. Ancestry.com is taking it much farther afield than I want to get into it. With what info I have I may end up having to do a shared article with another brand that I have very little on, Ocean Breeze, which I have also googled the bejabbers out of, and actually found more than on Stone Fizz. I may end up putting it on the back burner for a while until I can find more info on the company itself.

I've got so many article ideas that I wonder if I'll ever get to them all.


Thanks for the help gentlemen, and if any one has access to Chattanooga City Directories from the late teens and twenties let me know. Or Bottler industry magazines of the time, I have access to some of them, but they are sketchy around this period.

I also have one that has patent applied for on the bottom, but on the front/back it has chatt 21 so I guess this was made right before the patent was approved ????
