The   Daublaine   company   was   founded   in   1830-1831   by   the   Abt   Jean- Louis     Cabias     (1793-??).     In     1834     André     Marie     Daublaine      (an engineer)   joined   as   co-founder   and   Marie   Antoine   Louis   Suret   (1807- 1876)    became   foreman.   In   1838   the   firm   merged   with   the   firm   of Louis Callinet (1786-1846). Louis    Callinet    (1786-1846)    was    a    pupil    and    cousin    of    Francois Callinet   and   came   to   Paris   in   1806.   He   worked   with   Pierre-François Dallery   and   in   1821   he   associated   himself   with   Jean-Antoine   Somer (until    the    death    of    the    latter    in    1830).    Facing    serious    financial difficulties,   he   sold   his   company   in   1838   to   Daublaine.   Louis   Callinet left   this   company   in   1844   because   of   a   dramatic   event   (in   a   moment of   madness   he   devastated   the   organ   of   St.   Sulpice,   of   which   he undertook   the   restoration   almost   ten   years   earlier)   and   he   ended his carrier by working as a laborer at Cavaillé-Coll. Félix    Danjou     (1812-1866)    became    commercial    director    of    the Daubaline-Callinet   firm   in   1839;   in   1841   Charles   Spackman   Barker   (1806-1879)      became   director   of   operations.   Due   to   the   dramatic events   in   Saint-Sulpice   (see   above)   and   Saint-Eustache   (this   organ was   destructed   by   a   fire   caused   by   Barker   himself),   the   company was    liquidated    in    1845    and    taken    over    by    Pierre    Alexandre Ducroquet   (1798-1877),   who   employed   Barker   again.   In   1855,   the company was bought by Joseph Merklin . Daublaine-Callinet    was    the    leading    organbuilder    during    1835-1840; Cavaillé-Coll and Merklin took over this role after 1840.
