embalming?

This is kind of an odd question, but when did corpses begin to be embalmed on a fairly wide scale in the United States? This wouldn't be so in about the 1880s, correct? But although it probably wasn't prevalent, did at least a few people have the knowledge/materials to do such a thing?

Thanks!
