Julia Zesut At The Soap Factory

January 1, 2008

In an earlier post detailing the 1910 Glastonbury Census I noted that 16 year-old Julia Zesut was employed at a Soap Factory. I wasn’t sure what soap factory it was but recently looked at a document forwarded to me by Bill Gerich (Sophie Zesut Gerich’s son, Kasper and Anna’s Great-Grandson). The documents covered some Zesut family history and was written by Irene Zesut Pardo (Frank Zesut’s daughter, Kasper and Anna’s granddaughter) and actually mentioned that Julia had worked at the J.B. Williams Soap Company in Glastonbury. Following is a scan of a J.B. Williams Soap advertisement that I found on Ebay.
