    Mike. I assume there is some a document or something pointing to Nobel’s connection to Ives and his workshop. I haven’t asked Mary Jane for specifics but I don’t believe she would assert it if she didn’t. I am quite curious would you please inquire when you contact her? I assume you have seen the webinar I did on the Solid Wheel movement. If you have, o hope it’s clear what an admirer of the Jeromes.

    Here is what Mary Jane shared with me in this regard a couple of years ago.

    "Yes, in my talk I showed proof in the form of a document from Ives' CT insolvency in 1820, in which he stated that Joseph Ives & Co. employed 10 workmen exclusive of himself, Elias and Titus M. Roberts, and Noble Jerome, not counting unidentified numbers of persons making the pinions and faces (all very interesting). I have all the footnotes for the sources in the book - or if need be at this point you can reference pers. comm. with me. So on the basis of the evidence, it is reasonable to say that Noble Jerome was working for and with Joseph Ives & Co. as early as 1818, when JI & Co.was formed. Unfortunately, I don't know exactly when they started working together"

    Al,
    Sad to say, I missed out on your webinar. I believe I was having computer browser incompatibility issues at the time. I've heard your name come up in conversation more than a few times in the context of Chauncey Jerome, so I'm well aware that you're another admirer of the Jeromes.

    Jim,
    Thanks for clarifying that the source of the information about the connection between Ives and Noble Jerome was from a document from Ives' insolvency. Did you cover that in your Ives treatise? If so, yet another fascinating piece of information that my brain has managed not to hang on to.

    Mike

    Mike, I did cover the Nobel Jerome bit in my Ives book. And noted it came from MJ IIRC. She is a wealth of knowledge, a researcher par excellence, always willing to share and assist us research limited folks, and just a good person to talk clocks and history. How she does it all is a mystery to me.
