S&FBCo, Nicholson, American, McCABE

Pat Pag comments: This week an old building in my town burned. It was built as a stage coach stop on the route from NYC to Philly, PA. I collected 3 bricks from the ruins. I am president of the Roselle Park Historical Society, looking for history. I found S&FBCo, Nicholson, & American. I am also interested in McCabe bricks.
Be welcome to write back to me to share your knowledge. Thanks, Pat

  1. Hello Pat,
    From our web site "guru" Fred Rieck:
    The S&FBCo is the mark of the Sayre & Fisher Co of Sayreville NJ. (see link elswhere on this website). The NICHOLSON was probably made in Dutchess County at a place called Dutchess Junction, south of Beacon, NY. The AMERICAN (and I am going to assume its a reddish common building brick - not a street paving block) may likely have been manufactured on Staten Island, and possibly at some other location as well.

    MACABEs , were made at a location in Ulster County and possibly at other manufacturing locations, (Haverstraw) as well . The Macabe home office may have been nearer the NY metroploitan area.
