  1. Salem Iron Works was actually started as Salem Agricultural Works, co-owned by C. A. Hege & G. T. Glascock, dating back to 1873 (maybe late 1872). Still doing research, but looks like it changed names to Salem Iron Works about 1877. C. A. Hege held several patents in sawmill equipment. G. T. Glascock would go on to start Glascock Plow & Stove Foundry in Greensboro, later becoming Glascock Stove & Mfg. Co.
