Pitcher's Castoria was patened by Dr. Samuel Pitcher of Barnstable, Mass. in 1868. The name was changed to Fletcher's Castoria when it was acquired in 1877 by Charles H. Fletcher......
This sure as "hell" dates the site above to way back in the late 1860's to 1870's. WOW!!!!!! No we didn't take it with us, we put it back under the leaves.
