The oil references caught my attention.
I was born and raised just north if Titusville PA. Wich played an important part in this countries oil industry. I have good memories of going to view this historic site as a child and as recently as ten years ago to ride the old steam train railway tour.
Quote from Wiki...
"The first oil millionaire was Jonathan Watson, a resident of Titusville. He owned the land where Drake's well was drilled. He had been a partner in a lumber business prior to the success of the well. At one time it was said that Titusville had more millionaires per capita than anywhere else in the world."
