That is an interesting subject. Does anyone know of any families that
made substantial fortunes in Gloversville 75 to 100 years ago whose
descendents still live in town? I know Johnstown has some old
families although I cannot name any. When I was in high school I was
friendly with a girl who went to Mayfield Central School. Her name
was Carlise Zimmer and she always said her family owned part of the
FJ&G for many years. She lived on North Main St. just across the city
line, so she went to Mayfield rather than Gloversville schools.
