Chicago Board of Trade Members: J. Finley Barrel, James Barrell, and Stewart Barrell

J. Finley Barrell, of Finley Barrell & Company, was CBOT member #5224 along with James Barrell, #5787 and Stewart Barrell, #6651.  Apparently the father of Finley, James Barrell, was a veteran of the grain commission business and had retired before reentering the business with his sons in a firm named for Finley, above.  The CBOT member numbers indicate that Finley had joined earlier than his father.
