Denlinger Bros

General store ledger - Denlinger Bros Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


Denlinger Bros, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, were distributors of oils and grease of various types. It appears that the store in Barton acted as a distributor for this company, since their client list is included in the ledger.

James and William Denlinger were listed in the Pittsburgh City Directory of 1895 as secretary and vice president of Interstate Oil Co, as Oil Dealers.

Their territory in 1895 covered a wide area, from Elk Garden, WV to Frostburg. The company was out of business by 1910. (Pennsylvania Department, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh)
