-- During 1850, Ferdinand Schumacher founds German Mills American Cereal Company in Akron, OH. During the same period, John Stuart established the North Star Mills Company in Canada.
-- In 1877, Qaker Oats registered as the first trademark for a breakfast cereal. The trademark was registered with the U.S. Patent Office as "a figure of a man in 'Quaker garb.'" Both former owners, Henry Seymour and William Heston, claimed to have selected the Quaker name as a symbol of good quality and honest value.
--- In 1881, Henry Parsons Crowell buys the bankrupt Quaker Mill in Ravenna, OH, and its most important asset the brand name Quaker.

Who invented Quaker Oats? ---------The brand name was found and was registered by entrepreneurs William Heston and Henry Seymour to the U.S. Patent Office on September 4, 1877. Henry Cowell acquired Quaker Mill Company from Henry Seymour in 1881 and got the right to manufacture and sell products bearing the trademark. After a year, an advertisement for Quaker Oats was released in America. The products were offered in cereal boxes in 1885
