As I've been cataloguing microfilm research I've saved from when I was working on my book, The Fowlerville Chronicles, a few articles have caught my attention. One in particular included an article, published in The Fowlerville Review in 1886, as follows:
Mr. George E. Daily left on Monday for Lansing where he will fill a responsible position as bookkeeper in the large manufacturing institution of Bement & Sons. His many friends will regret exceedingly that his business interests have called him away from this village, and all will unite in wishing him abundant success.
At the left of the sign, Bement & Sons Stoves and Ranges can be seen.
