  4. Don't know if this is the correct thread to post or not; if not it can be moved. Over time I have come up with two Stetson Quality Assurance slips found in old boxes. If you Google the name George Weachter there are matches that come up thru Ancestry.com. There were several generations (3?) of George Weachter's living in Philadelphia. The best match to be the George Weachter died in 1947 as I recall.
