Frank Glover - Pin Maker

Frank J. Glover b. abt. 1876  in Rochester, New York was the father of Howard Foster Glover b. 1904 Rochester NY, and grandfather of Howard "Howie" N. Glover


The 1989 through 901 Rochester City Directories list Frank J. Glover occupation as a “pin maker” working at a business located at the corner of Brown’s race and Furnace.  A search of the 1903-1904 Rochester House Directory Supplement reveals that the Judson Governor Co., Judson Pin Co., and Judson Power Co.,  were located on that corner.   We know that Frank was a pin maker; therefore,  it is probable that he worked for the Judson Pin Co. Further research of the Judson Pin Co. shows that the company made safety pins. [1]
