Marble King, Inc.
Marble King, Inc. quickly became a major force in the realm of American marble manufacturers. It actually began more than a decade earlier as the Alley Agate company but was sold by Lawrence Alley to Berry Pink and Sellers Peltier in 1949.
The name was changed to Marble King and operated in St. Marys, West Virginia, until 1958, when it was destroyed by a fire.
That same year the factory was rebuilt in Paden City, West Virginia, not too many miles north of St. Marys. The factory is still in operation today.
Marble King was sold to Howdyshell, Duncan Peltier, and Cornell Medley in 1963.
Howdyshell emerged in 1983 as the company's sole owner.
He died in 1991 after 42 years with the company; he was succeeded as president of Marble King, Inc. by his wife, Jean.
