Long Description:
Frederick J. Lisman was a New York City-based banker and railroad financier who purchased the Detroit and Lima Northern and Ohio Southern Railroads in 1901 to form the Detroit Southern Railroad Company (the Iron Railway was added to the DS in 1902). He lost the DS when it was sold at foreclosure in 1905 and reincorporated as the Detroit, Toledo and Ironton Railway Company.
