In the Patron’s List of the 1901 Charlevoix County Plat Book I found an advertisement:
Ellison & Austin –General Blacksmithing, Wagon Making and Repair Shop
Horse Shoeing Done in a Scientific Manner
Within the 1901 Plat Book are listed:
J. P. Austin
I am pretty certain this is my 2nd great-grandfather, William A. Ellison. Further research will determine. He was there in Boyne Falls in 1901, not moving down to Hazel Park until 1911. I wonder what it means to horse shoe “in a scientific manner”?
