Colton, George A

The Colton Designs were made by H&B and Moore & Barnes - later Phoenix Manufacturing. (at least).

For those searching for George A. Colton patents, he lists many residences.  For example, he has 10 patents in 1890 alone (Page 84, here), and lists both Chicago, IL and La Fayette, NY as residences in various patents.  However, the same witnesses validate that these are all the same inventor.  In 1891, some of his patents begin to be assigned to the Munger-Colton Manufacturing Company in Chicago, IL.  The 12/26/1895 edition of Iron Age reports that the Munger Colton company has been succeeded by the Colton Manufacturing Company.
