1. Irish Glass Makers of Ellenville. The Ellenville Glass Company was established in 1836 by a group of glassmakers from Connecticut. Its location was chosen because it had an abundant supply of wood fuel nearby and was close to the D&H Canal. The company had two slips on the canal from which it received raw materials and shipped finished products. Soda ash came from England by way of Boston soap makers. Sand was shipped from New Jersey and limestone from Ohio. Bottles were shipped westward via the D&H Canal, Hudson River and the Erie Canal.

2. Ellenville Glass Works. After its initial incorporation, the Ellenville factory survived five reorganizations between 1836 and ca. 1922. Unfortunately, despite its almost century-long history, the plant was only known for the use a single mark (possibly two) on its glassware.
