    "McAvoy Brewing Company was founded in 1865 as McAvoy & Bemis Brewing by John H. McAvoy and Henry V. Bemis in Chicago, Illinois. In 1889, the brewery was sold to the English-owned investment syndicate, the Chicago Breweries, Limited, leading the way for continued consolidation of Chicago's breweries under English ownership"

    Root Glass Company, Terre Haute, IN (1901-1932). Mark is often embossed very lightly along the lower heel, and sometimes is almost illegible. Root produced a huge variety of soda, mineral water and beer bottles. There were two separate factories in the early years, one for fruit jars and the other for bottles. The fruit jar factory was purchased by Ball Bros. in 1908, and operated by Ball until it was closed in 1912 or 1913. Root Glass Co. was bought by Owens-Illinois Glass Company in 1932. Later the plant became part of the American-Wheaton Glass Corporation, in 1962 it was sold to the American Can Company, and then sold again to Midland Glass Company in 1968. After being purchased by the Anchor Glass Container Corporation, the property was closed down in 1984.
    Your bottle is after 1901.
