Notes for G
USTAVUS LILLY:
[majors new.FTW]

From "The Name Lilly" by J.K. Lilly, Sr. written in 1942. He was Chairman of the Board, Eli Lilly and Company, Indianapolis, Indiana

"Born in or near Baltimore, March 23, 1814, married Esther Elizabeth Kirby, daughter of Cloudsberry Kirby. The Kirby family came from "Eastern Sho". Gustavus with three brothers, Evan, Caleb, and Edwin, emigrated to the Blue Grass region of Lexington, Kentucky, somewhere in the early forties, thence Gustavus came to Indiana early in the fifties, settling in Greencastle, Putnam County. He was a contractor and builder noted for the solidity and long life of the houses he built. After nearly one hundred years his old home in Greencastle, Indiana, built by himself, still stands four square to the winds. Gustavus and Esther had a large family, eleven children, nine of whom lived to good ages. The first born, Eli, was the founder of what is today known in many countries as Eli Lilly and Company, Pharmaceutical Chemists, Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A. The Red Lilly was on its way."

From "The Lilly Legacy: Part I", Indianapolis Magazine, August, 1974
"Gustavus, a master carpenter and house builder all his life, was determined to leave the ease of his father's plantation near Baltimore to strike westward to ply his trade and, as a "shouting" Methodist, to establish Sunday schools along the way as part of the church he devoutly supported.
Determined that his children should have the best possible education, he moved from Kentucky to Greencastle, Indiana, to be close to one of the country's finest Methodist schools, Asbury College (now DePauw University)."

Notes for S
AMUEL LILLY:
[majors new.FTW]

The 1860 Census shows Samuel as a physivian with real estate valued at $2,500 and personal property at $3,000. However, it shows that his wife, Mary, has real estate valued at $6,000 and personal property at $20,500. It shows her birthplace as Pennsylvania. We have no information as to her maiden name. Also shown are John (age 8 months), May F. Terbilt, 22, Femal and personal property worth $7,000. May's state of birth is Indiana - I would assume this is a relative. Also living with Samuel is Bartley Maloy, age 15, male, born in Ireland - I would assume this is a servant.
I think we can assume that Jane Lilly named her youngest son (Samuel L.) after this brother.

Notes for J
ANE DEY LILLY:
[majors new.FTW]

Jane didn't marry until she was 34 and had her first child at 35. She didn't have her second child (Samuel) until she was 42. That made her a very elderly lady when her grandchildren were growing up. Jane died at the ripe old age of 91.

From "History of Lilly Industries", web site www.lillyindustries.com, 1999
Lilly Industries Inc. is rooted in the entrepreneurial traditions of the 19th and 20th centuries and committed to developing and marketing the technologies of the 21st century. With 134 years of experience supplying global original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) furnishings and coatings, the Indianapolis-head quartered company has gone about quietly building a rich history of success and a bright future of possibilities.
Founded as the Capital City Varnish Works in 1865 by Henry Mears, entrepreneur J.O.D. Lilly quickly contributed his name to their newly formed partnership in 1867. By 1872, Lilly bought out Mears and eventually brought all of his sons into the business operating under the name J.O.D. Lilly and Sons. By the early 20th century, this newly incorporated company now known as Lilly Varnish Company was clearly a family owned and operated business right down to the actual making of varnish. Because this manufacturing process was more of an art form than a science, the "formulations" or recipes were tightly held by artisans who had been trained as apprentices or as special helpers. The Lilly family built the company from an Indianapolis hometown varnish-maker into a trusted and valued name in the nation's paint and varnish industry by serving the then thriving passenger and freight car rail businesses.
Three generations of the Lilly family guided the company's fortunes through trying economic and political times. The family's luck ran out during the postwar recession of 1921, and they were forced to sell to a group of Cleveland business executives formerly associated with the competing Glidden Company. This new team ushered in a 78-year history of innovation in the coatings and finishes marketplace that continues to this day. Under the new leadership, Lilly Varnish transformed itself from a regional varnish-maker supplying all types of finishes to all sorts of markets, to a supplier focused on supplying industrial coatings and finishes for OEMs nationwide and abroad.
From the mid-1930s to the late 1960s, the then Lilly Industrial Coatings built plants and acquired companies across the nation, from Massachusetts and North Carolina to California. Lilly attracted some of the best and brightest young chemical engineers and chemists from specialized chemistry and engineering programs at Purdue, North Dakota State and North Carolina State universities. As this new generation moved into top management positions, they focused Lilly on practical, sales-driven research and development, which positioned the company for an explosion of growth in the 1980s and 1990s.
In 1991, Lilly Industrial Coatings changed its name to Lilly Industries, Inc. to reflect the wide variety of coatings and products it supplied to the global marketplace. Lilly came full circle in 1993 when it acquired the liquid industrial coatings business of ICI/Glidden, a British-owned leader in the global coatings industry, closing a loop that had opened in 1921 when investors formerly from Glidden purchase the company form the Lilly family. A second 1990s acquisition closed yet another loop by the addition of Grand Rapids, Michigan-based Guardsman Products, Inc. GPI had gotten its start in 1915 when a Lilly sales executive left the company to start one of the nation's premier manufacturers of specialty wood finishes and metal coatings.
Today, Lilly Industries Inc. is closing in on $1 billion in annual sales and operates 20 plants in the U.S. and 13 international facilities. The firm's more than 2,200 employees serve 15,000 customers worldwide. Lilly has never forgotten its roots. The company's Indianapolis headquarters are located less than a mile from the small varnish factory that henry Mears founded and later J.O.D. Lilly developed more than a century-and-a-third ago.
At the dawn of the 21st century, Lilly Industries is clearly focused on the future refusing to rest on its laurels. Lilly no longer simply sells paints or coatings. Lilly's unwavering commitment to market-drive research and development provides innovative technologies and solutions to meet the requirements of a dynamic, global marketplace.
