From "HISTORY OF THE UPPER OHIO VALLEY," Vol. I, pages 625-626. Brant & Fuller, 1890. " JOHN L. LLOYD John L. Lloyd, of Wellsburg, a business man of high repute, was born at Steubenville, February 12, 1827. He is the son of William and Susannah (DeHuff) Lloyd, the former of whom was a native of Maryland, and the latter of Ohio. The father died July 16, 1859, at the age of sixty-two years, and the mother April 22, 1881, aged eighty-one years. The father was a chairmaker by trade, and he and his wife were devout members of the Methodist Episcopal church, he being the recording steward and trustee of his church for many years. They were highly respected and famed for honesty and their generous impulses. Of the six children of these parents, three died in early life, and the survivors are James H., John D., and Thomas M. James was married to Ellen Merriman, and has five children: Sue E., Ella M., Mattie H., James H., and Sally Barclay (deceased). Ellen M. is the wife of Charles Heil, of Wellsburg. James H. is a printer by trade. The subject of this sketch has been engaged in the chair business since starting out in business for himself, and since 1860 has been conducting a furniture and undertaking establishment which has been quite successful. His brother, Thomas M., has been a merchant nearly all his life, and now deals in books, papers, pictures, wall paper, etc. He was postmaster of Wellsburg several years during Lincoln's administration, but resigned before his term expired, and was succeeded by Mr. Hagan. The brothers have been successful in business, and are numbered among the responsible and progressive citizens of the place. They are members of the Masonic order and in politics are Republican."

We inspect & check the quality of the packing. Packing operations take place in the entire North Wing of the Sargent District Hospital. The North Wing is 4 times the size of any franchised packing store found in cities. We renovated the North Wing into a packing site custom designed specifically for furniture. This enormous area features state of the art equipment. In the beginning, we packed out of a garage with make shift supplies & limited space. We quickly learned furniture requirements are different from conventional merchandise if it is to arrive in one piece. Over years of packaging, we have designed shipping strategies exclusively needed for furniture. We pack purchases in the former Surgery & Delivery rooms with surgical precision. The truck loads furniture where ambulances previously unloaded patients. We handle, move, & pack furniture as if it were human in nature. Buyers with questions about how to unwrap are welcome to call 402-350-6740.

Most buyers are unaware of the labor & time involved in preparing furniture for safe arrival. Large furniture items like china cabinets take more than 8 hours to prepare.

Pride Packing offers professional packing.
We have over 500 pieces of Tell City Chair Company. Earthjunk's private Tell City collection has included online acquisitions since 1998.

The cost of PROTECT IT for single and double chairs is only 16 dollars. Large items are slightly more depending on the size. Buyers that wear a seat belt when driving may want their furniture to travel cloaked with the PROTECT IT foam wall.
