Melissa, with both Simeon and AJ Post having direct associations with the Watson MFG. Co. and with Paterson being but a few miles from Passaic and with the consideration that those other companies which were licensed to fabricate parts for and build their patent trusses being far to the west, it is all but certain that Watson was the builder.
