Hello, I live in Staten Island, NY in a Victorian home built in 1893. The garden in front of our home is outfit with bricks, the ones that have a name written on it say CATSKILL; however, there's this one brick that says SHAWMUT PA. This is the only brick in the garden we could find with that name. I tried to google about the brick and found Shawmut, PA is now St. Mary's. I'm not sure where to look to find out info on the possible manufacturer or how old the brick itself might be. Any info you could share or point me in a direction to do more research would be appreciated. Thank you.
