Hello Ken...We list "Cold Springs Dairy, H.R. Armstrong" in our book under Fairfield/Osborn. We don't have a bottle from the dairy, though. Are you fortunate enough to have one? Hope so! Thanks! Sue

Hello Jim. Interesting to hear about your grandfather's dairy. We have a listing for Beck's (Charles Beck, owner) in Springboro that we show eventually became a Receiving Station for Sealtest. We also have a listing in Middletown for Beck's Dairy Farm (Charles L. Beck) that then was known as Beck's Dairy...and we show eventually sold to Borden's Dairy. Hope that is right! We don't have a bottle from either of those. We also list Townsend West Dairy in Cincinnati, and have embossed and painted bottles from there. Thanks for your comments! Sue McFadden

My mother's family operated a dairy farm in Ohio called Bosse Dairy Farms (I think). I've been looking everywhere for a bottle to give her. If Mr. and Mrs. McFadden or anyone else knows anything please let me know. I would be so grateful.

My father is Lee Dietrich, the co-founder of the former Lockie Lee Dairy in Painesville, Ohio. He is the last surviving partner of the dairy. Are there still copies of this book available?

Hello,

My mother recently gave me a bunch of old family stuff. Among the items is a Lockie Lee bottle (pint) with no lid. I have no use for this and thought someone on this board would like it. If you are interested, please send me an e-mail. I'll be glad to ship it to you free of charge.

Cheers,

Stacey (stacey.hamblin@yahoo.com)

Do you still have the books for sale? Do you have a bottle from Frank Ulrich & Sons dairy in either White Oak, Ohio or Mt. Healthy Ohio. It was my great grandfathers dairy and i have been searching everywhere for a bottle or some information on the dairy. Unfortunatly I haven't had much luck.
Any help you can give me would be greatly appriciated.

Thanks,
Stephanie Ulrich
