Moses Atwood sold his Jaundice Bitters company in pieces and parts, by 1855 he had sold all interest to numerous people. This is a brief explanation of whom he sold to; Carter & Dodge which was purchased by Manhattan Medicine Company, Lewis H Bateman,  L.F Atwood whom also sold to Manhattan Medicine Company,  Nathen Wood later Nathen Wood and Son, Charles H. Atwood whom sold to Alvah Littlefield & Company which then sold off to Gilman Brothers. Its of no surprise that this resulted in disputes around name usage, which resulted in trademark trials as well as advertisement that warned you to only buy “genuine Atwood’s Bitters”
