Page 262:
"Among the earliest M.D.'s were Drs, Green, Rogers and Rucker. They were followed by Drs. Morris, McKendrie, Taylor, Ford, A. and J.H. Davis, O. N. and Henry Manes, Crosthwait, Goddard, and Sypert - to name a few."
- newspapers, steam thresher, a couple of pictures, etc

"Brick buildings made their debut in downtown Holland after the big fire of 1887 destroyed some of the frame business houses.
A block of brick homes also went up - built by L. D. Murphy, W. F. Douthitt, J. P. Murrah, Dr. A. Davis and C. W. Wilson.
And then a brick kiln came to Holland - established by the Wolds Brothers."
"The population exploded = going from 300 in 1884 to 800 by 1896."
Hope this assists. Ben
