Company Names, addresses, dates1:

Notes:
Edmond Walsh shows up as a bottler in Baltimore MD in 1863.
Apparently he moved to Washington DC, as he shows up as a bottler of mineral water in DC city directories (or tax records) from Oct 1864 to Feb 1866. After that, he's listed in the DC city directories as a Restaurant owner in 1866, then he seems to have disappered from Washington DC.
