I don't know where the King Bridge Co. builder name came from for this bridge but it is quite clearly the work of Morse Bridge Company of Youngstown, Ohio. It has the exact portal bracing of this bridge http://www.historicbridges.org/ohio/sulpher/index.htm and the lack of struts seen on so many other Morse bridges such as this one: http://www.historicbridges.org/ohio/slagle/index.htm
