In 1866 the Union Iron & Brass Foundry, located at 171 Front Street in Sacramento, was being operated by Williams, Heilbron & Co. and were making steam engines and sawmills among their products. By 1868 that location was being operated by Williams, Root & Nielson—who called the works the Union Iron Works— and we have seen the "Williams, Root & Nielson" name interspersed with that of Williams & Co. That firm survived until at least 1872.
