NATIVE AMERICANS DISCOVERED OIL

For IDA TARBELL.

One more thing that was taken from these great people....

The SENECA Indians of Northwestern Pennsylvania used PETROLEUM as a health remedy. It was used for LIVER ailments, Pertussis (Whooping Cough), CHOLIC, and a whole list of ailments.

3 teaspoons, 3 times a day was the dosage, so, pure petroleum, taken sparingly, will not kill you...

They made the same mistake with PETROLEUM that they made with TURKEYS, CORN, and all of the other American Traditions that they are now denied.

Hearing the settler's babies suffering with CHOLIC, they let the early settlers in on the secret.

The more business minded followed them to the places where the OIL seeped out of the ground...They bottled the petroleum and marketed it as "SENECA OIL"...

In it's HEYDEY, Seneca Oil sold by the hundreds of thousands of 8 oz. bottles per year...You may have seen the old HAWKERS in western movies selling the stuff for 50 cents a bottle...

Men drilling for WATER and SALT in Pennsylvania and other places would toss the petroleum that would foul their Wells onto the ground...It would eventually catch FIRE and BURN...The smart ones among them used the oil as a LUBRICANT and fuel for their lamps...

The PENNSYLVANIA ROCK OIL COMPANY leased ALL of the land in a 50 mile strip where the oil seeped forth...

Samuel M. KIER, owner of "KIER'S Rock Oil" had the idea that petroleum could be distilled to make a more reliable lamp fuel and lubricant...

But the oil was hard to get at.

A TEACHER and Writer by the name of GEORGE H. BISSELL had the brilliant idea of using WELLS, modeled on ARTESIAN WELLS, to pump the oil to the surface....

Mega-Rich John D. Rockefeller and a group of investors got wind of what was happening in Pennsylvania and the rest is HISTORY...
