I am trying to find some information on the ZIHLMANN family that came to the
US from switzerland in the late 1800's. The two individuals are Anton, Joseph,
Nicholas and Johann. These gentlemen worked in the Glass factories as they
were glass blowers. Possibly some of these came from the Belairs glass works.
Anton later moved to Cumblerand, MD and started his own glass works selling
this in 1900 and buying another in Huntington, WV. Its name was the Tumbler
Glass Factory. These men expanded their field to North Baltimore, OH. I have
been doing some work on this family but have not been able to get to the basis
of their arrival.
