We are taking a one-day break from the articles I've been posting of Charles Gehringer, a ball player from Fowlerville, to go back to the beginning of Livingston county.
Just before leaving, I found a small book on the beginnings of each county in Michigan. I immediately checked out Livingston county and was disappointed to see Fowlerville was not listed. It would have seemed to me ANY mention of the Grand River Trail should have mentioned Ralph Fowler's contribution to making it a thoroughfare with the building of the plank road. Oh well, such is the forgotten history of this village.
Back to Charley Gehringer tomorrow.
