He settled in Owen Sound, Canada, and moved to Muskegon in 1883" [should be 1886]"where he established the manufacturing firm of William Heap and Sons which was located on Irwin street until 1908 when the factory was moved to Grand Haven, where it is still in business under the management of the son, Lionel heap.
