I learned that starting a business in 1890s was admirably difficult. This guy hand-built his tools, and then spent the rest of the year on a horse-drawn wagon trying to sell them. Not only that, but after his banker ran off with all his cash, he stoically went back to work! This DeArment guy was a tough cookie for getting through all that.

I learned 1893 proved to be a difficult year for George B. DeArment. All the company's cash assets were lost after a local bank teller left town with the bank's funds, leaving the Champion Bolt & Clipper Company, and many other businesses, broke. But, with the help of a few local businessmen and his wife, Eva, George obtained the needed capital and had the company up and running again in 1894.

In 1886, a blacksmith decided to begin improving the farriers' tools available at that time. George B. DeArment spent the cold northwestern Pennsylvania winters hand-forging tools in a small two-story factory in Evansburg, PA, now called Conneaut Lake.
