The business from Belfast.....
T.R.L. Sinclair, not to
be confused with the dinosaur of
Sinclair Oil, once lived
in a wonderful estate in Indianapolis. This was the Sinclair Home. A
successful business starts with a successful home!
Mr. Sinclair sailed
between England and the United States on numerous occasions. One
of those trips was 20 October 1950, arriving the United States on 26
October 1950. He and Jean A.D. Sinclair, female, age 31, traveled
on the Mauretania. His wife, in the articles I've read, is listed
only as, Mrs. T.R.L. Sinclair. Is Jean A.D. Sinclair by any chance
Mrs. T.R.L. Sinclair?
This home has a
playhouse, tipi, track, tennis courts, swimming pool and lots of ground!
The quality of Kingan
and Company was reflected in the quality of the homes in which their
Just across the
street, at least in 2006, was a home at 4401 Clover with a great big star and
two large barking dogs!
Another of Kingan and
Company's early executives, William J. "B.J." Reid, built a home that is
now a spa and restaurant. Per the history of
The Villa, this home was
designed by Herbert W. Foltz and was fashioned after a Florentine villa
in Italy. Reid lived in the home until 1909 when Fred C. Dickson
purchased the home. This home was said to have been used by the
government during the War years and, when I toured the home in 2006, the
vault in one of the rooms displayed the words "Departmen Treasury."
It seems that someone forgot the "T" on
"Department," thus the safe says, "Depart men Treasury!"
There will be more
Kingan and Company photos later, but enjoy the scene for now!
