Has anyone heard of Averill Dairy Company in Akron Ohio?

We live in a 1920's house in Richfield, OH., and just found a lot of glass milk bottles buried in our front yard (while trenching to tap into the city water line), and they are marked "Averill Dairy". Unfortunately many have been broken by the backhoe that was used to trench with. I'd love more info, too. The Averill Dairy Comp. My Great Grandfather Ernest L. Von Gunten helped run the farm and C.W. Von Gunten was the secretary and treasurer of the company. It is my belief that their father, Gottlieb Von Gunten, a native of Switzerland, owned the farm. I would love to have a piece of or a whole bottle. Please contact me at my email artbyjeffosborn@aol.com. Please feel free to correct any mistakes, as I am going from memory.
