“A plow manufacturing firm in Maysville received last week an order for one hundred of their plows, to be sent to the interior of Mexico. They are to be boxed, and will be carried upon the backs of mules two hundred and fifty miles from the coast to their destination.” Courier-Journal, February 1, 1873 “The boiler of Hall's plow factory at Maysville, Ky., exploded January 27th, instantly killing William Harris, engineer, severely wounding the foreman and a brother of Harris.”  The Locomotive, 1881.
“A Maysville firm has just shipped 500 plows to Cuba via New Orleans.”   Courier-Journal, June 25, 1870 “Maysville plow factories shipped one thousand seven hundred plows to the South last week.”  Courier-Journal, October 17, 1870
“As many plows are said to be made in Maysville as in any city in the West. It has three plow factories, and they all do a very excessive business. That of James H. Hall & Co. is the largest wrought-iron plow factory in the United States.” Courier-Journal, February 20, 1871
