knowledge of how things should be for the well dressed man. We 
believe we do know what constitutes a fine garment, and we do not 
hesitate to say, that if we knew of any better line of Clothes than 
those made by Rosenwald & Weil, of Chicago, we would discon- 
tinue their sale immediately. We know of none better. "R. & W" 
Cheerful Clothes more truthfully represent our ideals than any make

KUN 

Scissors and Shears 

are made for clean, accurate work. They are 
scientifically designed and adjusted to an 
exact cutting edge so that blade meets blade 
with absolute precision from heel to point. 

Each shear is fitted with a patent bolt 
that can never work loose. This bolt has 
a right-hand screw and a left-hand nut, 
working against each other, so that a varia- 
tion of adjustment is impossible. They are 
less tiring than any others for no pressure is 
required to keep the cutting edges together. 

You are sure of satisfaction if you 
ask for them by name. Every pair fully 
guaranteed. We sell them.

BUICK AUTOMOBILES 

A TTAINED their superiority by reason of true merit, and they maintain 
this superiority through a continuance of this merit, coupled with the 
adoption of all the latest improvements and a constant striving toward excellence 
and "up-to dateness". THE BUICK winnings in the auto contests this year 
have been made with ordinary "stock" machines, such as every purchaser gets, 
and not with some specially built machine made for the purpose. This is a 
point well worth considering. Note the individuals who have tried other 
makes, thrown them aside, and then became perfectly satisfied in the possession 
of a Buick. As the season of 1 909 has seen the Buick better than in previous 
years, so will the season of '910, and all succeeding seasons, see the Buick 
still further improved. We invite your inspection.

GAULARD 5 1 962 

HE recently imported French Percheron Stallion, is 

Txi to be found every breeding day of the year at the 
>Y farm of C. H. Hagelshaw, three-fourths of a mile 
"^ north of Union City, and the careful attention of those 
mterested in fine horses is called to this magnificent 
specimen of his family. 

GAULARD was bred by M. Goupil, of Commune of St. 
Bomert, France, and was foaled April 8, 1 906. His sire is Turco 
55333, his dam being La Roche 37371, thus descending from 
some of the best Percherons in France. He was imported to this 
country in November, 1908. Although only three years old, he 
weighs, when in condition, 1 900 pounds. He is of fine form and 
color, and his get will be large, servicable horses. 

The tendency of the times is toward heavier horses for farm 
and other purposes. The importation of Gaulard is in this direction, 
and no better specimen of the Percheron is to be found.

OUR OWN LAMBS 



The Lamb Knit Goods Co. 

COLON, MICH. 



THOMAS J. HILL, Superintendent 



'TpHE merchant will keep in mind that in a late decision of our Supreme Court, 
■^ they say that we are the original and only Lamb Company, prohibiting by 
injunction the use of the word "Lamb" as a corporation, either orally, written or 
printed; therefore a representation of a dealer handling other than our goods, that 
they are made by a "Lamb" company, would make him liable. 

Imitations of our goods are now and then thrust upon the market, calling them 
"Lamb Knit," "Knit on Lamb Machines," etc., etc., thereby trying to evade, to 
a great extent, the injunction of our Supreme Court.

SIDNEY D. BUELL. 



The name of Buell is intimately as- 
sociated witli Union City and its his- 
tory. The Buells were among the first 
white people to settle here in the early 
thirties. They were of sturdy stock 
and they aided in the first develop- 
ment of the place, and have ever since 
taken prominent part in the business 
and social life of the town. And even 
today the descendants of these pioneer 
Buells are among our leading people. 

The first Buells to come to Union 
City, or Goodwinsville, as it was then 
called, were four brothers, Darius, 
Justus, Chauncey . and Thomas, who 
located here in 183 6 and 1837. The 
first named, Darius, the father of the 
subject of this sketch, was born in 
Sherbourne, Chenango county. New 
York, July 6, 1808. His wife was Cor- 
nelia Lincoln, and when they came to 
this place in 1836 there were but few 
people here, and only a few log 
houses. Darius Buell soon entered 
into the busy pioneer life of the local- 
ity and aided greatly in its develop- 



ment. He built the flouring building 
here, and took part in the erection of 
nearly all of the first pretentious build- 
ings of the new town. The interior 
work of the Congregational church 
building was also his and he and his 
son, Sidney, unaided, prepared, match- 
ed and laid the floor of the structure, 
doing all of the work by hand. He 
was one of the organizers of the old 
Union City Iron Company, and he 
helped to build the first big boat, the 
"Union City," which was intended to 
ply the waters of the St. Joseph river, 
but which was lost on its first trip. 
Later he engaged in the mercantile 
line, and up to the time of his death, 
in 1875, he was interested in leading 
local enterprises. His estimable wife 
survived him a number of years, pass- 
ing away in 1S91. 

Sidney D. Buell, their son, bears the 
di.^tinction of being the first white 
child born in Union City, this occur- 
ring September 27, 1838. 

He was twenty-three years of age

UNION CITY DIRECTORY 



When, in 1861, he responded to his 
country's call and enlisted in the First 
Michigan Light Artillery, serving in 
the various batteries of the regiment, 
notably in the gallant Battery D, 
familiarly known at Church's Battery. 
He served all through the war and 
was in many engagements. 

After the war he returned to Union 
City, and soon thereafter, when Cor- 
bin Post, G. A. R., was organized, he 
was its first adjutant, filling this posi- 
tion for five years, and also being its 
quartermaster for two years. Mr. Sid- 
ney Buell has been closely identified 
with Union City and its development. 
For many years he conducted a plan- 
ing mill, a heading mill and a factory 
for the .manufacture of bee supplies, 
but retired when his plant was de- 
stroyed by fire in 1904. Since that 
thne he has dealt largely in bee sup- 
plies, and is the inventor of many use- 
ful devices in this line. 



Mr. Buell was married November 
1, 1866, to Miss Margaret A. McCon- 
nell, who proved a most worthy help- 
meet until death claimed her, July 3, 
1907. , 

]Mr. Buell was attacked by failing 
health and partial blindness in 1905, 
since which time he has retired from 
active pursuits, although a familiar 
figure upon 'our streets. His has been 
a long, busy and useful life, and nearly 
all of it has been spent in the old 
home on North Broadway, which he 
still occupies. During the past few 
years his benefactions have been 
many, not only to various organiza- 
tions and public enterprises, but also 
to the worthy and needy poor of his 
acquaintance. This, indeed, seems to 
be his principal pleasure, and he an- 
nounces his intention of so continuing 
until his time shall come to be laid to 
rest beside his loved ones in beau- 
tiful Riverside Cemetery.

History of Union City 

The junction of the Coldwater and St. Joseph Rivers was undoubtedl\- 
an attractive spot for human beings hundreds of years ago, as witness thr 
many remains of the worl< of the so-called "mound builders" in this im- 
mediate vicinity. Afterward the Indians made this a favorite hunting and 
camping ground, and to this day there are to be found occasionally evi- 
dences of their habitation and use of the territory. Late in the seventeenth 
century the early French explorers made use of these rivers in pushing 
their way westward into the heart of the unexplored middle west, and 
their craft plied the waters of the placid St. Joseph along the whole length 
of the stream. Tradition tells i:s that at al)out this time there was a 
French trading post established here, its location being just south of the 
present site of the present city school building, and that the proprietor 
did a brisk business with the Indians who were then in this immediate 
vicinity in large numbers. Hftw long the French trading post remained here 
is only a inatter of conjecture. At any rate there was an extended period 
after its abandonment during which no white man's feet traversed this 
locality. 

M"e are told that then the spot so favored by nature was invaded by 
one John Clawson, who came here from what is no\V La Grange Cnunt.\-, 
Indiana, and established a small trading post near the site of the oM 
French post. Clawson bartered with the Indians, it is said, very successfull\ , 
but did not remain here very long. To Clawson, therefore, must be given 
the credit of being the first settler in this place. It is an undisputed fact, 
however, that Isaiah W. Bennett, who was among the first white men to 
settle permanently in the interior of the state, was the first to prospect in 
this immediate vicinity _ with a view of securing possession of the land 
and to encourage immigration of the settlers from the eastern states. 
Mr. Bennett was a native of the state of New York and he has the 
distinction of having been the founder of the city of Jackson, Michigan, 
in that early day being known as Jacksonburg. He was of a roving 
disposition and had halted at various points in the interior of the state 
before coming here, establishing public houses at Ann Arbor and Jack- 
son, which he conducted for several years. He was a great admirer 
of Andrew Jackson, at that time President of the United States, and he 
quoted him so frequently that he was given the name of "Jack" Bennett 
by the Indians and early settlers. From this it was an easy matter to 
find a suitable name for the now flourishing city of Jackson. The original 
survey of the tow^nship now known as Union had been made in 1826 by 
Robert Clark, under the direction of Edward Tiffin, who was then LTnited 
States surveyor general, and Mr. Bennett considered the union of the 
two rivers as a most suitable place for the founding of a white settlement. 
He prospected here in 1831 and with Jeremiah Marvin purchased a con- 
siderable tract of land from the government. It wa« not until 1834, how- 
ever, that Mr. Bennett located here, and in that year he built a log-house 
neg-r the present side of the municipal power plant. Bennett was an 



UNION CITY DIRECTORY 



unique figure in the early history of the place and he lived in various parts 
ot the piuneer town, keeping the old Union City house in 1837 and after- 
ward conducting a primitive store on the southwest corner of Broadway 
and High streets, where now stands the Merrifleld block. One of Mr 
Bennett's children, W. T. Bennett, bears the distinction of being the first 
white child born in Union township, and this babe grew to manhood here 
now being Gen. W. T. Bennett, of the United States Army. The elder 
Bennett finally removed to Wisconsin, where his last days were spent 

The first really permanent settler in this place was Justus Goodwin 
who came here in 1833 and purchased of Bennett and Marvin nearly 600 
acres of land in this and Burlington townships, paying therefor the sum of 
$2,000. He built a small house on the county line in which he lived until 
the erection of a more pretentious structure on the present site of Isaac 
Tower's residence. His purchase included the present site of the business 
part of Union City, and Mr. Goodwin at once began improvements He 
constructed a small race-way from the Coldwater River to the vicinity 
ot the site of the present municipal power plant, and utilized the water- 
power thus obtained in operating a saw-mill which was of great yalue to 
the early settlers. November 28, 1833, Mr. Goodwin sold to E. W Morgan 
ot Ann Arbor. 322 acres of land and the latter, in 1835, platted the town of 
Goodwinsville, as the place was then called. The plat of the original 
village was recorded in the oflice of the register of deeds of Branch County 
August 27, 1835, and thus was the town formally established. In December 
of the previous year a postoflice had been established here under the name 
of Goodwinsville, in honor of the real founder of the place. Mr Goodwin 
was the first postmaster here and he also conducted a small store where the 
wants of the settlers were supplied. 

In 1836 a company composed of eastern men became proprietors of 
considerable land here and laid out what was known as the -two hundred 
acre tract." The gentlemen comprising the firm were Richard L Clark 
Israel W. Clark, Lyman W. Gilbert, and Isaac M. Diamond, and in 1838 
Israel W. Clark and Mr. Diamond came here with a large force of men 
and began- extensive improvements. The water-power was improved saw 
and grist mills built, street.s laid out, etc., and the place began to gi've of 
promise of its future importance. There was a "companV store, besides 
one established by Hiram Marsh several years previous, but the first mer- 
cantile establishment of any note in the place was one started bv John N 
St.ckney, who came here first in charge of the affairs of the companv 

In the meantime settlers were Hocking here in great numbers." The 
town was assuming importance and there were sturdy pioneers making 
for themselves homes in every direction from the town. The early arrivals 
include the names of Youngs, Buell, Judd, Zimmerman, Hammond, Kurd 
McCamley, Lincoln, Parsons, Olmstead, Warren, Leonard, Chaffee, Saun- 
ders, Hawley. Burnett, Mitchell, Dunks, Morrill. 

The first town-meeting was held at the home of Chester Hammond 
April 3, 1837, the officers of the election being: Moderator, Chester Ham- 
mond; Clerk, Briant Bartlett; Inspectors. Lewis Hawlev, Isaiah W Bennett 
Alpheus Saunders. At this election the township officers chosen were as 
follows: Supervisor. L W. Bennett; Town Clerk. Chester Hammond; 



UNION CITY DIRECTORY 



Assessors, Alpheus Saundei-.s, Solomon Parsons, James Pendill; Directors 
■ il' the Poor, Chester Hammond, Henry W. Potter; Commissioners of High- 
way, Lewis Hawley, James Pendill, I. W. Bennett; Justices of the Peace, 
James Pendill, Archibald M. Mitchell, I. W. Bennett, Briant Bartlett; 
School Inspectors, Alpheus Saunders, Carpenter Chaffee, Briant Bartlett; 
Overseers of Highways, Carpenter Chaffee, Gideon Smith, Chauncey Buell; 
C jnstables, Henry Reaser, Rufus Hill, Thos. Buell; Collector, Rufus Hill. 

Late in the thirties the inhabitants of Union City were wild with ex- 
citement over the fact that this place had been named as the head of 
navigation of the St. Joseph River, and that an appropriation of $50,000 
had been made for the clearing away of obstructions and improving navi- 
gation in the stream. Something like $10,000 was actually expended here, 
the money being obtained from the sale of public lands. Justus Goodwin 
was overseer of the work. 

The first hotel in Union City was the Union City House, built in 1836 
by the owners of the village. It was first in charge of Chester Hammond, 
then later conducted by I. W. Bennett. The first landlord to conduct the 
hotel for any great length of time was Thos. L. Acker, and under his man- 
agement it was a popular place, noted for miles around for its hospitality 
and for the dances held there, the upper floor containing a large ball-room. 
John J. Freemyre made extensive additions to the building, and this old 
structure is now a portion of the .-present Union City House, conducted by 
F. B. Hart. 

Soon after the subsidence of the steamboat craze discoveries were 
made of large quantities of "bog" and "kidney" iron ore in this vicinity, 
while in Butler and Quincy townships the deposits were still more extensive 
and richer than here. Accordingly "The Union City Iron Company" was 
formed and incorporated by act of the legislature March 17, 1847. A blast 
furnace was built and the ore hauled here in wagons from long distances. 
The stockholders were all residents of this immediate vicinity, although 
Col. Thos. Mosley finally became the sole proprietor. The furnace was 
built in 1846, and in May, 1847, the first manufacture of pig-iron in Mich- 
igan was made here. 

The project of a ship canal through this portion of the state found 
many warm advocates in Union City from 1837 to 1855, as one of the 
routes considered most favorable was the utilizing of the St. Joseph River 
from Lake Michigan to this place and then by canal by way of Homer and 
across the counties of Jackson and Washtenaw to the Huron River at 
Dexter. Several official surveys were made and their practicability assured, 
but as the population and wealth of this section was not at this time large, 
and the estimated expense of the proposed water way a goodly sum, noth- 
ing came of it. At the time the main lines of the Michigan Central and 
Michigan Southern Railways were constructed across the state. Union City 
had the opportunity of securing either one or the other of them, the 
Michigan Central, in fact, making a survey through here, but the idea of 
a ship canal overshadowed everything else and the opportunity was neg- 
lected. Then when the canal idea was abandoned, it seemed for a time 
that Union City was doomed to remain cut off from means of speedy 
and convenient communication with the outside world. Finally, late in the 



UNION CITY DIRECTORY 85 

sixties, the Air Line Railroad project was pushed to a successful completion, 
and in the fall of 1870 mixed trains were run over the road, followed by 
a regular passenger and freight traffic the following year. 

And with the modern march of progress and improvement, Union City 
has kept steady pace. The town has always had the trade of a very wide 
rural territory — a section which is the garden spot of southern Michigan. 
And in addition there are manufacturing enterprises of importance which 
aid greatly in the general welfare of the place. 

As Union City was the first place in the state to manufacture pig-iron, 
so was she the first to manufacture Portland cement from the marl that 
abounds in the lakes and marshes of this locality. The Peerless Portland 
Cement Company established a factory here in 1894, and it has ever since 
manufactured the highest grade of Portland cement in immense quantities, 
aggregating something like 400,000 barrels per year. The Institution gives 
employment to several hundred men, and is in operation night and day 
during the greater portion of the year. 

The Peerless Yeast Company, manufacturers of dry yeast, is a con- 
cern doing a large and growing business; while the Union City Canning 
Company, with a capitalization of $15,000, has recently been organized for 
the purpose of canning all kinds of vegetables and fruits. 

The Union City Creamery, with its hundreds of milk patrons and its 
milk routes traversing a wide territory and going into nine different town- 
ships of Branch and Calhoun counties, is one of the leading institutions 
of its kind in the state, and it is doing a good work in the development 
of the dairying interests of this locality. 

Union City was incorporated as ■ a village in 1866, and public im- 
provements speedily followed in the way of graded streets, good sidewalks, 
fire protection and the like. The question of public utility plants was vig- 
orously agitated in the early nineties, and this resulted, in 1894, in the 
establishment of a municipal water works plant and a municipal electric 
lighting plant. Up to dajie, something like $40,000 have been expended 
upon the two plants, and their service radiates to every part of the town. 
There is considerable sewerage, with a complete system in prospect. There 
are handsome and well-kept public parks, well-shaded and beautiful streets, 
and handsome and durable cement sidewalks in every part of the town. 

Union City has ever been very proud of her public school system. The 
present fine four-story brick and stone central school building was built 
in 1877, at a cost of about $25,000. It has since been greatly improved, 
and is fully equipped with laboratories, libraries and all modern improve- 
ments. Ever since 1881 classes have been graduated each year, and the 
members of the alumni association number something like four hundred. 
The high school is on the approved list of the leading colleges. 

Union City's business places cannot be equalled in any other town of 
its size in the state. Nearly all of the stocks of merchandise are exclusive 
ones, thus affording a larger variety and better stocks of goods than are 
generally found. The trading territory is a large one. 

Five rural mail routes run out from the Union City postoffice, these 
going into ten different townships.

Union City presents many attractive advantages as a manufacturing, 
business and residence city, and it invites tlie consideration of tliose 
seeking a new location. The town has good shipping facilities, while good 
factory sites are easily obtainable. Although possessed of many public 
improvements, the bonded indebtedness has nearly all been paid and the 
tax rate is very low. As a residence town, Union City cannot be surpassed. 
Its residents are mainly descendants of New York state families, and there 
is an absence of any foreign population. The churches and schools are 
in the front rank, its fraternal organizations are numerous and of large 
membership, while a high social standard is maintained. The latch-string 
is always out, and our people extend a heart>- welcome to all visitors.
