Amor, 3 Dec 04: Many thanks to Brock for his information
and photograph regarding the J&M Craig brick found at New Brunswick.
This is new to me so I'm really interested as I continue to compile
research about this family business. I do have copies of company
records but unfortunately they are not early enough to cover the
period quoted. I would like to know more about where the brick was
found and then try to link it in with my research. I have also been
contacted by a young man studying archaeology in Michigan who has
found a similar brick at the site of the Huron mines (copper) in
the upper Peninsula at Michigan. Also at the Williamson Tunnels
project in Liverpool, UK. Any others? Many thanks, Ann.
From David McClure, 2 May 05: (At Brock's request,
I sent his email address to Ann.) If your collaboration results
in a contribution to the history of J & M Craig, please consider
letting me have a report for the Ayrshire History website.
From Ann Amor, 4 May 05: Certainly David - I'm
always happy to plug J&M Craig wherever I can!! I'll send you
some more photos too, if that's OK? Many thanks for sharing the
contact and I am sure I can feel a story winging it's way to you
soon! Many thanks, Ann
PS The site is growing daily and is a wonderful resource for folk
like myself with an interest in Ayrshire.
From David McClure, 5 May 05: Photographs are
always welcome and most will find their way onto the site. Thank
you for your kind remarks - it is good to have some feedback.
From Alistair Stewart, 26 Sep 05: Iíve got 4 J&M
Craig Kilmarnock sinks in a wash house at the rear of my house.
They must have made a range of products!
From Chris Merritt, 27 July 2006: I am the student
that Ann Amor was talking about in her posting on your site [3 Dec
04] regarding finding a brick in Michigan. Right now I am collaborating
with a professor in Michigan to publish an article in the Society
of Industrial Archaeology's Journal. I am trying to reconnect with
Ann, but I lost her email address. If you could pass this note on
to her, or possibly provide me with an email address I would be
greatly appreciative. I will also guarantee that a copy of our work
will be made available to your fine website, so your incredible
community of folks can have free access to it. Thanks a lot and
I am attaching a photo and sketch of a brick I found if you want
to put them on your website. Have a great day and I hope to hear
back from you! [I have sent Ann your email address. David.]
From David McClure: Thanks Chris. I have emailed
your address to Ann.
