    Graham-Ginestra House - Rockford, Illinois



    "The Graham-Ginestra House was constructed in 1857. The original owner, Freeman Graham, Sr., was a prominent local businessman who built the first sour mash distillery in the State of Illinois, and achieved a national reputation for his whiskies. Graham was also part owner of the Rockford Cotton Mills, and his home at 1115 S. Main Street was located approximately midway between the Mills (202 S. Main) and the Graham Distillery (1602-08 S. Main)."


    >Chuck, are you familiar with this local history?


    Here is a court case: Graham vs Eiszner re barrel order, fail to pay, quality etc. pg 269-78

    The term "wantage" is used re the evaporation loss...> the angels share.
