From about 1846 to 1881, the steam marble works company of Myers, Uhl & Company was in business in Cleveland, Ohio. The company made monuments, mantles, and cabinet slabs. According to a Guidebook from the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, the company was located along the old Ohio & Erie Canal in Cleveland, where the Flats are now located. (See page 13 in the guidebook entitled "Geology along the Towpath.")
The two partners were George A. Myers and Charles F. Uhl. When I was walking through Oakland Cemetery several years ago, I ran into a monument made by Myers, Uhl & Co. It was a grave marker for Lydia Pero.
Along the bottom of the stone are the words Myers, Uhl and Co., though they are very weathered.

Myers, Uhl & Co. made hundreds of monuments and household items in their over 30 year history. An article in an 1881 issue of Bradstreet's reported that the company had gone into receivership.
