I am Charles Zachary Belcher the 6th Zachariah that I can find with my son being the 7th, Zachary Charles Belcher. There were three active Brothers in the Camptown, now Irvington, New Jersey Belcher Brothers factory: Charles, William, and Thomas. They resided at 506 Stuyvesant Avenue in Irvington, which is contiguous with the Belcher factory properties. Irvington High School now occupies about 1/3 of the Belcher estates holdings. 506 Stuyvesant home is on the historic registry as the Henry Osborn House. It still stands and can be found on Google Maps Street View. It now has a stone elevation on the front. There is a nice 1939 print of the home if you search a little. Brothers Zachariah Belcher II was always a Tailor who started a thriving shop in Camptown. He later expanded to include a dress factory nearby. Henry had a home across the street from the Belcher Brother Rule Maker factory site. He started a thriving mosaic glass works, which became quite famous, but the lead glass and mercury started to poison and kill his workers and he fled the courts to a suburb of Chicago.
