Clinton H. Meneely was the third son of Andrew. Clinton opened a foundry in partnership with George Kimberly (, a relative by marriage) , on the east side of the Hudson in 1869. They shipped their first bell in January of 1871. In 1887, Clinton purchased the [[Troy_Bell_Foundry|Jones & Co. Foundry]] moving the equipment to the Meneely and Kimberly facility on River Street. From 1879, bells were labeled as Clinton H. Meneely Bell Company, Troy New York. From 1902 to 1951, bells were labeled as Meneely Bell Company, Troy , New York.
The Meneely Troy foundry may well have shipped more than 12,500 bells consuming more than 4300 short tons of bronze. Analysis of the company's ledgers can be found on [http://towerbells.org/data/MT-FoundryProduction.html TowerBells.org].
