    My grandfather worked in the factory. He was injured and lost part of his foot when a crane crashed. He was a security guard after that. I would like to learn more about the accident. His name was Steve Sloboda.

    I just found this video and really enjoyed the talk. My grandfather, Steve Kurcinik, worked in one of the glass factories in and around Kane in the early 1900’s. In 1922 he moved to Lebanon CT to become a farmer. He was of Czech heritage. I would love to know more about where he worked. If there is a museum or historic record of the employees I would love to visit and research to see if I could find his name.
