Hi my name is Sarah Botticher and my great great grandpa Francis E Walk invented this frying pan. My great grandma told me that his partner Phillip J. Boyle took all the money and left him with nothing. I have the original invention and patent at my house. My question is back in 1913 did they ever sell this invention and what money was my grandma talking about?

Welcome to Ask Patents. The post didn't end up having the patent number in it. Please edit the question to add that. You might be able to research if it was ever sold but this site is not a very good starting point for that. –  George White May 13 '14 at 23:28
