Our member Bacall was kind enough to send me a scan of a Waltham Watch Company ad that ran in the 18 May 1861 issue of the paper. It lists 87 jewelers and watchmakers in six states that vouched for the quality of the company's goods. A good number of those listed are already in my project and a little research has allowed me to add nine more:

Arnold, Peleg -- Watchmaker
Childs, Sylvester -- Jeweler and watchmaker
Hodgman, Francis -- Watchmaker
Huntington, Enoch Smith -- Jeweler and watchmaker
Lamb, Thomas Melvin -- Jeweler
Macomber, Frederic William -- Jeweler
Shaw, Sherburne -- Jeweler
Stevens, James Reynold -- Jeweler
Woodbury, William Oliver Carleton -- Watchmaker

A transcription of the ad with links to my pages can be found here and a new build of my site here.

The Whig and Courier Pub in Bangor, ME was one of my favorite haunts in college-they made a mean tequila colada!
