    Founder, Co-owner and Vice President 
    • At Cleveland, [Rev. MacNish] mixes religion with business methods. In order to keep the villagers from seeking jobs in the cities, MacNish established a candle factory, became vice-president, and drives the product of the candle factory to the railroad station. [17]
    • [Rev. MacNish] saw that the village offered little opportunity for employment and some two years ago, he started a candle factory in a small shack assisted by Raymond Cottet and George Moyer, the latter having been employed previously in the Will & Baumer candle factory in Syracuse. Larger quarters on the main street were secured as the business grew, and having launched the project, which gradually took more and more of his time, the rector had the company organized about three months ago, under the name of the Perfection Candle Company, capital $10,000.
