My name is John Corsell and the Plowman Company in Garden City Long Island was purchased from Howard and Marion Plowman by my grandfather John F. Fischer. He worked for the Plowman's for 25 years prior to purchasing it. He past away in the early 60's. It was then run by my grandmother until the late 1970's when it was transfered to my father Robert Corsell (who worked for my grandmother as long as I can remember). My parents ran it until their death in 1979 and 1980. It was then sold to Petroline as I was only 14 and my brother was 16 at the time.

If anyone is looking for information I would be willing to share my memories (yes I actually ran the canning machines) or try to find out from my brother or my aunt in NC. We are the only remaining family members. We do have some items from the company but are always interested in more.

JOHN, I AM THE "BIG" AND PERHAPS THE ONLY COLLECTOR OF INVADER AND BLUE BAY ITEMS ON THIS WEBSITE. I HAVE A SEMI-LARGE COLLECTION OF MANY QUARTS, GALLONS, 5-QUART AND 5-GALLON CANS CARRYING THE NAME PLOWMAN FROM GARDEN CITY AND CHAS. KELLOM FROM PHILADELPHIA WHICH SHUT DOWN I THINK AROUND 1988 FOR ILLEGAL DUMPING FROM WHAT I'VE BEEN TOLD.

I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR SOME OF YOUR STORIES ABOUT FAMILY AND THE PLOWMAN COMPANY. I AM INTERESTED FROM A LONG ISLAND HISTORY STANDPOINT AND BEING A COLLECTOR OF INVADER PRODUCTS AS WELL.

SEVERAL YEARS AGO I TRIED TO SEARCH FOR INFORMATION THRU THE TOWN OF HEMPSTEAD AS TO WHERE THE PLOWMAN COMPANY WAS LOCATED IN GARDEN CITY. BUT HAD NO LUCK AT ALL.

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY AND GIVING THIS INFO. MUCH APPRECIATED.

Welcome aboard John. I am enjoying the history already. I am glad you can still remember. I think I have forgotten more than I ever knew, if that is possible.
Mike
