1961 History Lesson on First Store

Following is an article that can be found in the 1961 125th celebration special edition of The Fowlerville Review:
I did a little bit of research on on "Almon Whipple" and found there were two of them -- father and son.  Sometime between 1800 and 1803 Almon Whipple was born in Massachusetts.  By 1836, he was located in Livingston county.  In the 1850 census records, Almon was approximately 50 years old and married to Mary Whipple, a gal 20 years his junior.  They had two boys -- Franklin, who was seven at the time, and Almon, two years old.

Curiously, the 1860 census shows no family associated with his name.
