This came in by email:
My name is Sue Lane and I work at the John Wells Pratt House Museum in Fulton, Ny.
We recently acquired a marine engine built by the JJ Parker Co., which was located in our fair little city.
What I would like is any information you might be able to give me on the company. I have tried every
Thing I can think of to google and have come up dry, except for your site.
Thanks in advance for any help you might be able to provide.
Sue Lane, Exec.Dir w/ The Friends of History @ The John Wells Pratt House Museum.
I am sending thru 2 photos. I am hoping you may help me to get them posted on your forum board.
I am confused about what is on the label (parker gasoline engine) but manufactured by G J EMENY Co., and all I can find about them is agricultural things.
Thank you for your help...

This is a 2008 posting here.
Some updating since
"J J Parker Company" First listings were in 1903 and he was an established engine merchant--so possibly a year or two earlier ?
Thru 1905 was at 912 Erie Street address
1906 doubled shop size now at 506 Erie Street
1909 sold to G J Emeny.
"G J Emeny" Company" The New Parker Engine
51 Hubbard Street
First ads are 1910, have little info on this company, they were a Furnace manufacturer, Sold
Company 1916 To Dutcher Machine Company.
"Dutcher Machine Company"
F D Dutcher established this company in 1916 when he bought the G J Emeny Company
Dutcher remained at the 51 Hubbard Street address
I have never seen a Dutcher ad or an engine !
This is a 1922 Dutcher engine Listing'
