I was just reading about the Eberhard-Faber Pencil Co. and its beginnings in Greenpoint, NY yesterday. I also have a Faber ancestor and my cousin and I were talking about this connection to our family. The story of the company is on a website called Forgotten NY. Unfortunately, I could post that site to you on this board. However, if you have problems finding it, email me and I will send it to you.
