  1. Do you happen to know the nature of the falling out between A. Champion and the Stranahans that saw him move to Flint and them move to Toledo?

    • I am going to bed right now Christopher but I will get back soon and let you know what I can find out. I have a rather large library and it will take a little time. Have a good night…Gerry Godin

  2. I find many conflicting dates Christopher concerning early spark plug manufacturing in the U.S. I checked all my own books and every one mostly just says it was a “falling out” between Albert and the 3 Stranahan brothers. I then spent a few hours doing on lie research and there is quite a bit. The following link seemed to contain the best information but still doesn’t answer your question. http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/29/48808.html?1203951468 If I find better information I will pass it along. Good luck on your quest…Gerry Godin
