This listing is curious because the following news snippet was published by the New York Times on July 7 1889:
"Daniel D. Burkholder, a retired distiller of Lititz, Lancaster County, Penn., surprised the community yesterday by making an assignment, as he was said to have made a fortune in the manufacture of the well-known Burkholder whisky. Another surprise was the issue of an execution for $30,000 against Jacob. R. Hertzler, Burkholder's successor, and the seizure of the distillery by the Sheriff. "
