1935 J.C. Ellsworth Article

In 1970, one of my readers made a visit to Fowlerville during the purchase of the organ originally owned by J.C. Ellsworth.  He had an opportunity to speak with Wayne Eaton, whom some may still remember, as well as Nellie Glenn, the village's historian in the mid-1900s. 
In the packet of correspondence this reader recently sent to me, there was a gracious letter from Nellie Glenn indicating an article that had been published in the Detroit Free Press.  A copy of the article was also included in the package. 
As I read through the article, I tried to imagine what it would have been like talking with this trusted banker.  My favorite quote -- "I don't do any work any more.  I just say yes and no."
