History:

With the departure from the firm of David P. Davis in 1857 and Howard & Davis was dissolved and succeeded by E. Howard & Company. Howard and Davis both had also been involved in watch manufacturing, somewhat unsuccessfully, since 1850, Edward Howard began a new watch company in 1857, and on March 24, 1861 merged his clock and watch businesses into a single joint stock corporation, The Howard Clock & Watch Company. That firm failed in 1863. Subsequently, Howard formed a new company, The Howard Watch & Clock Company (transposing clock & watch) on October 1, 1863, which was successful for some years. That firm was reorganized in 1881 due to carried over financial setbacks from previous years.
