1863 Wilson Hildreth

When I found this article in The Fowlerville Review -- a 1915 issue -- the name "Hildreth" did not ring a bell as someone having owned a general store, foundry, etc. In looking back in my book, The Fowlerville Chronicles, where I included business directories through many of the years, in 1863 I found a "Hildreth, John P., general store." And that was that. Unfortunately, since there was no local newspaper for another eleven years, I don't have any further information on the Hildreth family, but I have to find this interesting part of a family so long gone from Fowlerville had kept in contact and came back to visit friends.
