He was born in Nodaway county, Missouri, August 6, 1867, and is a son ofWilliam W. and Jane A. (Pierce) Morgan, an account of whose lives appears in the sketch of W. H. Morgan. Our subject, who was reared and educatedin this county, as he was but a small child when the family removed here, remained under the parental roof until he was of age and then began hisindependent business career, renting land, which he operated for six and a half years. At the end of that time he purchased one hundred and sixtyacres on section 16, Prussia township, and began the improvement of his place at once. Later he bought additional land and now owns three hundredand twenty acres on sections 16 and 21, to the cultivation of which he devotes his time. He has resided upon his farm for eighteen years with theexception of two years, which he spent in Oskaloosa, Iowa, where he engaged in the coal business and where he was also connected with a brickfactory. He follows up-to-date methods in farming and his well directed efforts yield him a handsome income annually. In addition to generalfarming he carries on stock-raising and feeds about two carloads of cattle per year. He is also a stockholder in the Odd Fellows building atFontanelle.

Mr. Morgan was married on the 20th of October, 1890, to Miss Ida A. Rice, a daughter of Wilbur and Lavilla (Scott) Rice, natives of Pennsylvania,who came to Adair county, Iowa, in 1899 from Monroe, this state. ...

Hehas also been a school director and takes a great deal of interest in the welfare of the public schools. Hisreligious faith is that of theMethodist church and fraternally he belongs to the Odd Fellows lodge at Fontanelle. He is recognized as an efficient and enterprising agriculturistand as a good citizen, and all who know him respect him highly.

8662 William A. Wells, who resided on section 33, town of Sunfield, was one of the wealthiest farmers in Eaton County, Michigan. He was born inMarcellus, Onondaga County, New York on January 1, 1813, and was the son of Augustus and Deborah (Converse) Wells, natives of Connecticut. Hisbrothers and sisters were Orrin M., Priscilla, Maria, Russell B. and James R. Wells.

William A. Wells was reared under the paternal roof in Onondaga County, New York, and received only a limited education. He was thrown upon his ownresources at an early date in his existence and by working by the month and year provided for his support.He subsequently learned the blacksmithtrade, which he followed for a time. Acting on the advice of Horace Greeley, he came west in 1840, making the journey from New York to Detroit bywater, and from there across the country with an ox-team. In Eaton County, he made a claim of one hundred and twenty acres of land, settlingthereon in the spring of 1841. There was no clearing within a mile and a half of his place and no road near it, but all was in a primitivecondition, untouched by the hand of man. Hisfirst house was a shanty, 12 x 15 feet, built of logs, and the only board in the whole structure wasthat forming the door. With a capital of $30 he began life on the Western frontier and his lot was not exempt from the hardships and trials, whichbeset the path of the pioneer. After seven years a substantial log home replaced his cabin. As time passed, acre after acre of land was placedunder the plow until as the result of his own labors, one hundred and sixty acres of richly cultivated land pay tributeto the care and cultivationhe bestows upon them, while an additional thirty-five acres was also comprised within the boundaries of his farm. His progressive and enterprisingspirit had manifested itself throughout all his work. He and his brother, OrrinM., purchased the first threshing machine brought to the town ofSunfield and also brought the first mower and reaper, and the first fanning mill and windmill.

On the 20th of December 1841, Mr. Wells wedded Miss Mary Chatfield, also of Eaton County, who was born in Oneida County, New York, October 26, 1822.Her parents, Abram and Sarah (Bixby) Chatfield, came to Eaton County in the autumn of 1837, and located inSunfield, where they died, both at theage of sixty-six years. Mrs. Wells was one of the first white women who came to Sunfield Township and her home had been in Eaton County sinceJanuary 1, 1839. She was in every way worthy of the high esteem in which she was held. Her hospitable home showed marks of her care and cultureand the welcome she extended to the many friends of the family made the Wells' home a favorite resort to the people of the community. Six childrenwere born to William and Mary Wells: John, Palmer H., Ellen M., Eva, Frederick I., and William R.

To say that Mr. Wells had succeeded in business hardly expresses the excellent prosperity, which had crowned his efforts, and to his own labors maybe accredited all that he had made. Since coming to Eaton County he never purchased a bushel of grain or potatoes except for seed; had never paid adollar's interest on borrowed money, did not owe a dollar; nor was he under obligations to any man. A wealthy citizen, his property has beenacquired through the legitimate channels of business and in no way forfeitedthe confidence of his fellow townsmen in his business integrity. Inpolitics he was first a Whig and later supported the Republican Party. He was never connected with any religious denomination or secret organizations.

William died May 2, 1903 at the age of 90 years and Mary died March 21, 1897 at the age of 75 years, both are resting at the Freemire Cemetery,Sunfield Township, Eaton County, Michigan.

Obituary:
William A. Wells was born January 1st, 1813, in Onondaga County in the State of New York, where he resided until 1840 when he removed to Michiganand located the farm upon which he lived until the time of his death the 2nd of May 1903.

December 20, 1841, Mr. Wells was united in marriage to Miss Mary Chatfield. Of this union there were born four sons and two daughters of whom threesons and the two daughters survive him.

Nothing that can be said of Mr. Wells can either add to or detract from the high estimation in which he was held by all who knew him. He was one ofthe few of whom it can truly be said that those who knew him best esteemed him most.

Mr. Wells led a quiet, undemonstrative life filled with good deeds and kindly acts performed without ostentation. He was par-excellence, the poorman's friend. Whatever property he had accumulated was the product of industry and frugality. He never tookadvantage of another's necessity thathe might thereby enrich himself.

We can say nothing higher in praise of his memory then to say: He was a true husband, a loving father, a kind neighbor and an honest and usefulcitizen. If greatness is to take the common things of life and walk truly among them, Mr. Wells was great.

The family wish to extend their thanks to those who so kindly aided them in their sad bereavement, especially the choir from Vermontville whofurnished such fine music.

8682 WILLIAM HEIMFORTH
One of the owners of extensive landed and farming interests is William Heimforth, who resides on section 8, Elmwood township, Leelanaw county. Hisvaluable property has been acquired through his own efforts – his persistency of purpose, his laudable ambition and his determination, and theprosperity which is the legitimate rewards of all earnest labor is today his.

Mr. Heimforth is one of the native sons of Leelanaw county, but is of German descent and he possesses many of the strong and commendable traits ofcharacter of the Teutonic race.

Mr. Heimforth was born on North Manitou island, leelanaw county, April 20, 1856, and remained at home with father until eighteen years of age,during which time he mastered the branches of English learning taught in public school near his home. On leavingthe parental roof he made his wayto Ohio, where he spent about two years, after which hr removed westward to Kansas, where he lived for two years. For about three years he was inColorado, Wyoming and Montana, engaged in prospecting and lumbering, and onthe expiration of this period he returned to Leelanaw county. For twoyears he was upon the home farm, assisting his father in its cultivation, and then settled upon the farm which is now his home, on section 8,Elmwood township. He owns two hundred andseventy acres of land, of which two hundred acres is improved. This is the old Dunlap farm and isvaluable property, splendidly equipped with modern accessories, with the latest improved farm machinery and with good buildings. His methods offarming are in keeping with the advanced ideas of the twentieth century and in his work he is systematic, energetic and diligent.

Mr. Heimforth was married in Elmwood township, Leelanaw county, on the 1st of January, 1889, to Miss Rhoda E. Hatch, who was a native of New York,her birth having occurred in Oswego county, October 3, 1855. Her parents were Smith and Cornelia A. (Lince)Hatch, who came to Leelanaw countyabout 1867 and settled in Elmwood township, where the father died on the 18th of August, 1887, but the mother still survives. They were the parentsof five children, of whom Mrs. Heimforth is the second in order of birth.Unto Mr. and Mrs. Heimforth three children have been born, Fred,Elizabeth and Mary.

In township and county affairs Mr. Heimforth takes an active and abiding interest and views all such matters from a practical and progressivestandpoint. He votes with the Republican party and is one of its stanch advocates. He has never been active as an office seeker, however,preferring to give his time and attention to his business affairs, in which he has met with signal success. He is a man of varied experiences,gained during his sojourn in different parts of he country. There is nothing narrow inhis nature, he looks at the world from a broad standpointand stands as a high type of American manhood, reliable, enterprising and with due regard for the rights of others.

8685 WILLIAM R. WELLS -- The career of this representative merchant and popular citizen of the village of Woodbury, indicates the consistency of thestatement that success is the result of the application of one's powers and abilities along those lines which his natural tendencies select. Mr.Wells was reared on a farm but had no predilection for its work, and he has proved himself in no uncertain way in the vocation which he has adopted.He was born on the homestead farm, in Sunfield township, this county, in December, 1868, being the youngest son of that well known pioneer, WilliamA. Wells.

He was reared on the farm, doing such work as he was compelled to do but with so manifest reluctance and distaste that the other members of thefamily pronounced him lazy and irresponsible. He attended the district school in a desultory way, but much preferred to go fishing or to visit thevillage of Vermontville. When he reached his legal majority his father gave him three hundred dollars in cash, with the stipulation that if hespent it foolishly he could expect no more. His father had a horse called "Boney," which the son had used as a driving horse, and though the animalwas a good roadster it well deserved its name. The value placed on this horse by its owner was about seventy-five dollars, but when William R.approached his father with a propositionto buy the animal he asked double the price, considering it foolish for the son to make such an investment.But the latter had decided to have a horse and wagon and to engage in peddling groceries. Noting his determination his father gave him the use of"Boney," with the provision that he must feed and care for the animal himself. The young man rigged up a wagon, purchased some goods, which hestored in a bedroom in the parental home, and on this basis he initiated his independent career as a "man of business." He went out through thecountry, selling goods, securing partly cash payments and also taking in exchange butter, eggs and whatever other produce could be converted intomoney. The "lazy" boy worked early and late, devoting his Saturdays usually tocrating eggs and taking them to market in Vermontville.

Eventually the father began to manifest a certain amount of interest in the work which the son was doing, and would often wait on persons who cameto the house to purchase goods which William R. had for sale. The father had believed his boy would not stick to the business and that hisinvestment was a foolish one, but he was open to conviction and as winter approached and it became evident that the wagon trips would have to beabandoned, at least to a large extent, William R. began looking about for a storein an eligible location. He finally made overtures to purchasethe stock and business of Perry Welch, who had been conducting a general store at Shaytown, in the eastern part of Sunfield township, but the pricedemanded was greater than the cash resourcesof Mr. Wells, though he was given the opportunity of applying a properly secured note in part payment.His father considered the venture too great a one and would not aid him, and he then appealed to his mother, who offered to sign a note with him.

Under these conditions Mr. Wells was enabled to become a full-fledged merchant, adding his own little stock of goods to that already in the store.He continued the enterprise at Shaytown from the autumn of 1890 until October, 1893, when he leased a small store building in Woodbury and moved hisstock of goods to the same. He finally purchased the building, to which he has added until it is now the largest store in the village, and that hehas had courage, ambition and good judgment is shown not less in theappearance of his establishment than in the marked success which he hasattained.

His stock has a conservative valuation of ten thousand dollars, including a full line of hardware, dry goods, groceries, boots and shoes, men'sfurnishing goods, etc., and in connection a meat market is conducted, while the annual sales reach an aggregateof twenty thousand dollars. Thestore has a frontage of one hundred feet, and in addition to owning this excellent property, Mr. Wells has erected a fine modern residence, of tenrooms, with furnace heat and other facilities unusual to the smaller villages. His real estate investments in Woodbury aggregate about sixthousand dollars in value.

He has not lost his fealty to the business of operating a wagon, having constantly continued this feature of his business during the season, hissales in this department averaging fifty dollars a day and the accommodation being greatly appreciated by patrons. He has personally taken his turnin driving about with the wagon and visiting his customers, and he has the esteem and good will of the people of his community, who also admire himfor his pluck and perseverance in the face of obstacles. In view of the facts here given nothing farther need be said against the business recordof the "lazy farmer boy."

Mr. Wells is independent in politics, though favoring the principals of the Republican Party. He was postmaster at Shaytown three years and is nowserving his second year as postmaster of Woodbury. He is affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Modern Woodmen of America.

October 15, 1890, Mr. Wells was united in marriage to Miss Cassie M. Rawson, who was born and reared in Vermontville, this county, being a daughterof Benjamin F. Rawson.
