ELIPHALET REMINGTON III
Youngest son of the gun manufacturer signs a check for $11.00.
Partly Printed Check signed: "E. Remington", 8x3. Ilion, New York, 1885 August 20. Drawn on the Ilion National Bank to "Thos. Staring or bearer" for $11. Not endorsed on verso. Eliphalet Remington III (1828-1924) was the youngest of three sons born to gun manufacturer Eliphalet Remington, Jr. (1793-1861). In 1816, Eliphalet, Jr. had constructed a flintlock rifle at his father's forge near Utica, New York. His weapon proved so popular that by 1828 Remington built a large factory beside the Erie Canal in Ilion, New York. By 1847, Remington Arms Company supplied the U.S. Navy with its first breech-loading rifle. In 1856, Remington's sons Philo, Samuel and Eliphalet III became partners in the business, which became known as "E. Remington & Sons." Upon the death of their father in 1861, Philo became President of the company, a position he held until his death. His younger brothers assisted in the operation of the firm. Under Philo's direction, the company provided a large portion of the small arms used by the U.S. Government during the Civil War. In 1865, Philo reorganized the company, separating the firm's agricultural implement business from its arms business. He and Eliphalet III conducted the agricultural implement division in partnership until 1886. "X" cut cancellation touches payee's name. Lightly stained at upper right blank corner. Fine condition.
