Description

W. H. Underwood established his carriage factory between late 1908 and early 1909, according to a trade news publication from February 1909. The Underwood Factory manufactured carriages, delivery wagons, special-use vehicles, sign painting, and primitive automobiles. Underwood's factory was considered to be "the swellest and largest line of vehicles this side of Jacksonville." He would later become an alderman for the City of Sanford. A 1913 newspaper report indicates that his wife died in 1913 from ptomaine poisoning, an allergic reaction to eating bad oysters.
