Just got phone call from SOS Ohio that images have been scanned and are now online.
Did a quick look-see on last pdf and a new name for President popped up. Will research him tonight.
Also received a pic scanned I believe in 2001 by local newspaper article on Buckeye machine that also shows a "Branch" of Bessemer Gas Engine being located in Lima in 1899.

Running out of time right now to follow up these leads. Maybe tonight I can report more details.

We have a Buckeye due (overdue!) at the museum. Originally installed at Hammersmith Pumping Station it was one of around eight installed in the London area supplied as war surplus in the late 40s.

The pics below (courtesy of Kew Bridge Steam Museum) are of the installation at Hammersmith taken in 1969.

Wow!! Thanks Bud and Marshall, for all the great detective work.

I do know the Bessemer Gas Engine Co in Grove city was not the same as the Bessemer associated with Buckeye. The plant in Grove City still makes a Bessemer designed engine with a GE badge on it.

I will be sidelined later this week for surgery.
There is a couple of other areas that I want to check out on the history of Buckeye. After some recovery time in the hospital I should have some time laying around at home to do some more detective work.

Bringing this back from the halls of history. Doing a story on the '34 Buckeye the boys at New Haven operate and have been researching. As fate would have it, I found many of the things dug up by this august group. Finding this first could have saved a few layers of skin on my fingertips. Anyway, I wonder if anything new has turned up.

I have a little time on my deadline, and since I live not far from Lima, Ohio, I will do a little searching locally, starting with the Allen Country Historical Folks and the Allen Country library.

I did find one new item, that Buckeye began offering the oil engines circa 1918 and it was commonly called the Buckeye-Barrett oil engine, after D.O. Barrett, who sounds like he may have been the designer of it. He wrote a number of papers on oil engines. He apparently graduated in 1908 as a Mechanical Engineer. I think he might be a good clue.
