Company History / Timeline:
~1875 through ~1920s
W. C. Gray and William R. Storey
As far as we can tell, this is where the story of our surveying firm began. We have some suspicions it could have been earlier but so far we have been unable to authenticate anything prior to this.
Gray & Smith
W. C. Gray and Meloy Smith collaborated to form Gray and Smith some time during the 1920s. Research shows a business filing around 1927. *Gray and Smith DBA filed 1/1/1927 according to Monroe County records, Monroe County Clerk’s Office.
It appears that Meloy Smith was flying solo during most of the 1930s. Oddly enough, flying solo was quite the rage in that decade. He remained aware, however, that having a competent partner is a significant advantage.
Smith & Fitzpatrick
Meloy Smith and Feehan Fitzpatrick partnered toward the end of the 1930s. It was an effort that lasted for quite a while but we have found no specific end date.
Smith & Denluck
This rendition of our company was composed of Meloy Smith and George Denluck. Yes, Mr Smith was around for a long while; his career apparently spanned five decades.
Denluck, Thomas, McGrail & Associates
