Family History At Ford

My Grandfather “Jon Topolewski” was one of the first 20 to 30 employees hired at the Bagley Ave. Plant. He actualy drove Henry Ford around. When Highland Park Plant opened he went to work there. When Henry Ford started building the Rouge Complex he went there as a brick layer. My other Grandfather Adolf Otto was also a brick layer at the Rouge. My uncle Leo Otto worked in the Dearborn Iron Foundry and retired from the Dearborn Engine Plant. I’ve been an electrician at the Rouge Complex for 47 years. My son Edward A. Tople works at the Dearborn Truck Plant and has been with Ford for 10 years. There is more of my blood involed in the Rouge than Bill Ford.
