    Nick HURRLE

    Nick HURRLE, a blacksmith, received a patent for a Parrot Bill Staple Puller. It was also a staple driver and wire cutter. With it any fence wire could be removed easily and expeditiously. He went into partnership with A.H. JEFFREY and they turned Hurrle's blacksmith shop into manufacturing shop to manufacture the staple puller on a large scale.
