Looking for Names- Findlay Foundry



DORMAN William Hilton - 35 years with Findlay Foundry.jpg


Hi Linda

Would you post the attached photo and see if I can get some of them identified.  This is a picture of employees of Findlay Foundry that celebrated 35 years working there.  The only ones I can identify are:  4th standing from the left is Moff Blaine; my father – Hilton Dorman is standing 7th from the left and the 11th from the left standing is Tom Labron.  That’s all I know in the picture.  These 3 individuals celebrated 35 years at the foundry and the guy sitting in the middle is holding the silver tray that was presented to each of these men.  I don’t know if all of them worked there for 35 years or not.  Linda Stewart, Tom Labron’s daughter gave me a copy of this picture. Any help to identify the men would be appreciated.

The gentleman, first row, fourth from the left, is my uncle, “Buck” Hawkins, who was a long time employee of the foundry.
