      Peggy asks:

      We have a bell which has been in our Ohio family for several generations and are trying to find out more about its history, etc. It is a No. 2 bell with Fredericktown, Ohio on the yoke, We have been told that the metal is extremely good quality.

      We know it was hanging in our relative’s yard up until 1949 when it went to my grandfather, Orville Aller.

      Is there a way we could find out more about the bell’s probable history? Thanks. Peggy

      Although we can’t give Peggy the history of the previous owners of her bell, perhaps there’s someone out there who can give her some information about the maker of her bell. Kindly post this information for all to see, if possible! Thanks.


      This inquiry was originally sent to an ABA member who forwarded it to me. Responses are opinions of individuals based on their personal research and knowledge.

      All I can tell you is that there is a 40″ diameter bell by this firm in the town square of Panora, Iowa, and it is made of cast iron.

      To confuse things, there was also a Fredricktown (all one word & a different spelling), Pa bell firm also. — Neil
