Digger, I was wondering if you have any more information about my great grandfather (Anthony) and grandfather (Frank) Wegener whom bottled Rock & Rye pop in Detroit in the late 19th and early 20th century. Anthony Wegener invented the soda in 1898, but I can not seem to find any confirmation and my grandfather (Frank) died in 1973 when I was 9 years old and did not get a lot of information about the company that was located on Riopelle in Detroit My mother Gertrude Phalen (Wegener) and my three aunts and one uncle are still alive and I would like to know more about what the pop bottles that we have are worth and maybe any other information you could share with me Jim Phalen
