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.

8920 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.
