      Old St Joseph’s RC church in Philadelphia has a Wilbank bell, dated 1841. Is there anyone that knows if there are any business statements, i.e., Wilbank Foundry inventory orders left from that time? We are trying to establish whether our bell was bought new or used, that would determine when it arrived at Old St Joseph’s. Does anybody have Joseph Wilbank’s date of birth and death?

      Thank you for your kind response.

      You might try the Germantown Historical Society as the John Wilbank Foundry was located in Germantown.
