Upon Stanley’s withdrawl just one year later, it became Matteson, Russell and Company to reflect a new partnership with Smith Matteson and John H. Bowen. Six years later, the company becomes Russell & Erwin. In 1851, it officially becomes known as Russell & Erwin Manufacturing Company. They merge with P. & F.
