1875 Council Meeting

Currently, I am the Fowlerville District Library board president and that means, occasionally, I need to attend or speak at the Fowlerville Village Council meetings.  The minutes for today's meetings are sometimes long and drawn out but, 142 years ago, they were quite simple.

While doing research for "The Fowlerville Chronicles," many of these names became so familiar to me.  W.W. Starkey was a businessman, having a stave factory and shipping barrel parts to India, to then have them put together and supplies shipped around the world.  Close was a store owner (see post from two days earlier).  F.G. Rounsville had the grain elevator and also served as a school superintendent.
The next post will be some fun local information.
