Samuel F Mentzer was an early business partner of Daniel Henry Romberger. In existence approximately 1904-1914, Mentzer-Romberger aka Mentzer & Romberger Builders' Supplies, or Manufacturing Company was based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania at 18th c Chestnut and their enterprise included brick and cast stone work. (By 1919, Mentzer moved his solo concern to 11th and Forster.) The business appears to have existed in Mentzer's hands both before and after this partnership. It appears that his son in law, John Grissinger later worked with him in this business. Daniel H Romberger went to Lehigh County in 1914 and began his own business, Romberger Cast Stone, aka Romberger Manufacturing Company.
