FX Ganter Pool Tables - Historical Origin and Design Inspiration
1879 and then a bookkeeper in 1885 for F.X. Ganter in Baltimore, Maryland. ... had two trademarks on the word "Oriole" and one patent on a pool table.
Isaac Fuld, the first born son of Jacob Fuld and Mary Abell, was born in the District of Columbia on March 18th 1865. His father, Jacob Fuld, a Jewish German immigrant, left B'dingen, Hesse Darmstadt, Germany with his parents and siblings and arrived in the United States on September 7th, 1854. His mother Mary Abell was born and raised in York, Pennsylvania. Jacob and Mary were married on September 12, 1863 in Reading Pennsylvania. Though Jacob was raised in a Jewish home, it appears he eventually left his faith.
From all accounts and church records Jacob joined the Franklin Street Presbyterian Church on December 31st, 1885 which his wife Mary had joined some five years earlier. Prior to that Isaac joined the same church on March 30, 1883, at the age of 18. Questions still surround whether Isaac and his siblings were raised in a Jewish or Christian household. Likely Jacob married outside his faith and eventually decided to join a Christian church. Jacob did not become a church member until after his father's death. Whichever household Isaac was raised in it was a large one.
Isaac Fuld was one of ten children, four boys, and six girls. Listed from oldest to youngest; Mary, Isaac, William, Lillie, Henrietta, Raymond, Meyer, Sylvia, Violet, and Flora. According to family stories at an early age Isaac, like his brothers and sisters, had a wild imagination and made up many games to amuse himself and others. He attended public school and at the age of 16 his first documented job was as a clerk in 1879 and then a bookkeeper in 1885 for F.X. Ganter in Baltimore, Maryland. This talent would make him the perfect business partner.
