A railroad supplier.

One of my latest additions to my collection. A company that supplied heating equipment for rail cars in the 1800's. Most likely steam heat from the locomotive. The information for this company is impossible to find on the web. I know it was the predecessor of the Fort Dearborn and Glass Company. That's about the only information I can find. If anyone can supply additional information on this company. I would appreciate it.

 As far as the certificate it has an interesting design. And probably one of the longest titles for a company ever chartered. A rare piece being the only one in Cox.
