My maternal grandmother was Harriet Adelaide MAHAN MARTIN. Her husband, Cal Martin was a partner (for a while) with Charlie Mahan (her brother) in the drugstore on river street. I plan to be in the TC area in early June and hope to spend some time getting such things as deeds for the store, ERHSchool graduation records -- my mother and her sister and brother grad. from there in the 1905-1912 yrs. Nat Noble was a great friend and I hope to bring some old photos with me. However, when I was last there 5-6 yrs. ago there was little interest, the records in the back of the basement of the old building -- next to where Harriet lived, were not accessible and I was severely discouraged from trying to get any info. I hope this visit is more productive. When a small boy (1930s) mother and I would visit Nat Noble Marker Coy etc.etc. and Aunt Lizzie Grammel Mahan. Is there any chance of finding a warmer welcome? Thanks.

1910 and is buried in Mancelona. He was a teamster, who it appears died

have been written relating to his death. Can anyone there help me?
