Hi,I picked up several bottles this summer and have been otherwise occupied and finally have some time to take pictures and post a few bottles I picked up this summer. I am going to hopefully make some sense out of this thread as I go along. The first bottle is a 1906-1910 Rochester Kansas City Breweries pony bottle I found in Lincoln, MO near the Boy Scout camp where I work. I have another in similar condition so now I have one for a trade. Any thing from Kansas City except the 1910-1919 amber Kansas City Breweries bottles are very hard to find. I also picked up another J Rieger whiskey bottle. They are very common. They may pick up in value a little as the Great-grandson of Jacob Rieger, among others, has started a distillery in Kansas City named after the former company.

Round II of summer bottles. All of the remaining bottles in this thread were purchased at the Bouckville, NY Antique Week in the middle of August.I have been collecting bottles since before my teen years. Before I was 17 I knew there was bottle from Sand Bank, NY which is now called Altmar, NY. I saw one a flea market near my place in New York and knew I could get one some day. With the advent of hutchbook.com I discovered there was another one from Sand Bank AND another one labled from Albion, Oswego County, NY Albion is the township in which one would find the village of Sand Bank. I one afternoon I got the two Sand Bank bottles. 40+ years of waiting. The Smith & Collins, Little Falls and the Nacey & Flanigan were nice additions. A little research shows that the Smith & Collins is before 1889 when it was sold and the N & F dates to about that same period. The business district of Sand Bank burnt to the ground in 1885 so that gives those bottles sort of a terminal date. The hunt for more info on Willam March and his partners will continue. More pictures tomorrow. Scott

Round III of my New York trip. The John F Scanlan bottle is a loop seal bottle from the Clyde Glass Works. He was a Syracuse beer and soda bottler for many years. The George Jones, Fonda, NY is a Matthews Gravitating Stopper bottle. I kinda highlighted the logo on the back. I have not yet found out when he opened this business, but I have seen many other newer bottles and maybe some crown tops. This one is scratched up pretty badly, but it's old and fits the collection. The Isengart and Fitzgerald Bros beer bottles are pretty common but they also fill in some gaps in my Capital District collection.

Scott, I'd be interested in buying your two Sand Bank bottles, W.M.& B. and Megan & March if you're willing to part with them for a princely sum?

You might want to try to e-mail him or private message him, he has not been in here since mid 2016 or past 7 years. LEON.

Yes Leon Thank you, i saw that after the fact...I did private message him yesterday too. If anyone can find him and link him to me...i'll provide a finder's fee. I REALLY NEED his bottles. Hopefully he'll part with them...after spending 40 years seaching for them.

Scott, even though you disappeared from the face of the Earth...permit me to answer your questions on "William March". There wasn't a person called William March in Sand Bank N.Y.. Here's the briefing on Sand Bank Bottles:

W. M. & B. CO. / SAND BANK, N. Y.
W.M. Rich / Wilbert Barnes

Approx. Years Manufactured : ~1875 to Oct 1885
  • W.M.’s Lineage: W.M. Rich, Wesley M. Rich of Sand Bank N.Y. His grandfather-“Moses Rich” arrived in Sand Bank 1819 and built the first Grist Mill in 1822, He had two sons: Morgan L. and Dr. Van Rensselaer Rich. Dr. Van Rich had two sons M. L. Rich and W.M. Rich (Wesley M. Rich). Wesley was Supervisor of Albion in 1870 and 1872.
  • B’s Lineage: W. Barnes, Wilbert Barnes of Sand Bank N.Y., Wilbert Barnes, a merchant Miller, born in Oneida county in 1810. Merchant Miller (definition) is one that sets up, operates, or tends machines to crush, grind, or polish materials, such as coal, glass, grain, stone, food, or rubber. In this case probably attended to the glass works.
MEGAN & MARCH / SAND BANK. N. Y., (Meegan), could not get the second “E” on the template
Lawrence Meegan / Isaac March

Approx. Years Manufactured : ~1887 to 1900

  • Megan’s Lineage: Lawrence Meegan BIRTH, 29 Jan 1855 New York, New York County (Manhattan), New York, DEATH 3 May 1921 (aged 66) Altmar, Oswego County, New York; Spouse: Mary Ann Cox Meegan 1861–1935, Lawrence Meegan was one of Altmar's most prominent business men. His loss will be greatly felt in the community where he has done so much for the general welfare of the town, doing all he could to promote any good cause, and where his genial manner and fair and honorable dealings have won him many friends.
  • March’s Lineage: Isaac March of Sand Bank N.Y., was one of Sand Bank’s Town Officers for 1894-95. Isaac probably attended to the glass works much like Wilbert Banes had done before the fire in Oct. 1885 fire that detroyed the business side of town.
