What The Experts Say...

HT 195, Low 132

Edward F. Sise, founder of the firm of general commission and forwarding merchants which issued this car, was born in Dover, N.H. on Sept. 19, 1799, and died May 25, 1868. The firm advertised itself as importers of crockery and glassware and dealers in coal.

The "Co." was E.F Sise and John Walker, but after Sise's withdrawal about 1854, Walker continued the business in partnership with William H. Sise and Joseph Sise. Walker retired in 1883. Joseph Sise died in 1894. This firm occupied the same premises from 1822 until at least 1895, according to Lyman H. Low.
