I Forge Iron

Christian Queen Obituary 0


The inventor of the Queen Patent Portable Forge. This obituary, published in 1894 goes a long way to explaining his life, as a young inventive blacksmith who pretty much began the business of manufactured forges, tools we mostly think of as antiques today but which were in his future. The obituary also explains the fact that he sold his patents very early and the buyer capitalized on his ideas. His medical discharge from the Union Army is noted and the reasons for it,,,and from the tone of the article shows that he was a well regarded and probably beloved member of his community.
