Found in Public Genealogy Records:
From the 1952 Book: The Only Eaton Rapids On Earth: The Pioneer History of Eaton Rapids and Hamlin Townships with Reminiscences by W. Scott Munn: "Horace M. Hamilton, a native of Massachusetts, was born in 1818, and came to Michigan in 1852, locating on a farm in Salem, Washtenaw County. He moved here in 1866, and operated a drug store which he sold to his two sons, Herbert H. Hamilton and Frederick Z. Hamilton, in 1875. In 1867, he was appointed Post Master and served for eighteen years until he resigned in 1885. During his regime the Post Office was housed in the drug store, now the Tom Mingus Shoe Store. Mr. Hamilton was of the progressive type and was one of the four business men that built the Leonard Block. In 1884, the drug store was sold to George D. Wilcox and Lewis W. Toles. Mayors serving the city of Eaton Rapids were: Herbert H. Hamilton, Fred Z. Hamilton, Samuel M. Wilkins, Charles S. Cobb, James B. Bradley, Charles T. Hartson, Hiram P. Webster, J. Warren Sheldon, John T. Hall, and David H. Long. City Clerks were William F. Stirling, Michael Kenney, George D. Wilcox, Homer S. Bentley, Lewis W. Toles, Winfield S. Henderson, James B.

This is a beautiful lithographed Eaton Rapids business advertising trade card with a rose design. It was found in Rochester, Monroe County, New York. We found the spelling of Dr. Lewis Toles surname as Tolles, Tole, and Toelle. We also found his full name spelled as Dr. Louis Toles. A wonderful old original rare piece for this pharmacist & doctor duo. This would have been their own personal occupational trade card.

Size: 2 x 3 inches
