Ellison & Austin, Boyne Falls Village, Michigan

24 Oct

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:

William Ellison

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”?
