Christy & Mike -FUNKIJUNK The American Seeding Machine Company was organized in 1903 through a merger that brought together many competing companies. The partners in the 1903 American Seeding Machine merger included the Hoosier Drill Company of Richmond, Indiana.
The Hoosier Drill Company was started by Joseph Ingels in 1857 and operated at Milton, Indiana until 1868 when the company was reorganized as the Hoosier Drill Company. They manufactured, at first, corn planting drills (hollow spikes that 'drilled' into the ground and deposited a seed) and then broadcast seeders.
P.P. Mast and Company, of Springfield, Ohio was another member of the American Seeding merger. This company was formed in 1856 by John Thomas and P.P. Mast, under the name Thomas and Mast. They built grain drills and cider presses, but during the 1860s they expanded their manufacturing line by introducing cultivators and other implements. During 1871 Thomas and Mast dissolved their partnership, being then known as P.P. Mast and Company. This company built the Buckeye Drill.14
Several other drill manufacturers made up the 1903 merger under American Seeding Machine Company. Superior Drill Company, Empire Drill Company, and Bickford & Huffman were also merged (with the previously mentioned companies) into the American Seeding Machine and lost their individual identities in the 1929 merger into the Oliver Farm Equipment Company
The Oliver Farm Equipment Company was formed in April 1929, through the merger of American Seeding Machine Company, Hart-Parr Tractor Company, Nichols & Shepard Company, and Oliver Chilled Plow Works.
