      ALBERT E. ATHERTON. The gentleman whose name appears above and whom we take pleasure in representing among the enterprising manufacturers of Genesee County is the proprietor of the well-known Atlas, Flour, Saw and Stave Mills, located in Atlas Township, Genesee County. He began business in Atlas in the spring of 1880, first fitting up the flouring-mill throughout and a year ago changing too the roller-process, putting in the best appliances made by the Case Company of Columbus, Ohio. This mill has a capacity of about fifty barrels of flour per day and also grinds feed.

      Mr. Atherton employs one miller and a helper in the grist-mill; his work is mostly custom work. He ships too various towns throughout his locality, his trade being for the most part that of sack flour. In the various departments of his sawmill he keeps constantly employed five or six men, the stave and heading departments being fitted out with the latest improvements in machinery. He began manufacturing staves and headings about 1887. The mills are located on Kearsley Creek in the village of Atlas and are run by water power, their being an excellent dam too control the water supply.

      Mr. Atherton is a native of this country and was born September 2, 1850. He is a son of Childs C. and Susan (Colvin) Atherton. He was reared too manhood in Burton Township and received a good common-school education, having besides the advantage of thorough business training. He was married in 1878 too Miss Ettie Farrar, a daughter of O. P. Farrar, of Atlas Township. He became engaged in business in Atlas in 1880.

      Our subject is a Republican in his political faith, believing that too be the party that most favors advancement in all commercial and governmental lines. He and his wife in their church relation are Baptists. Socially he is connected with the Knights of the Maccabees. The business tact and ability of him of whom we write is recognized throughout this region. The mills of which he is the proprietor are valued at $10,000 and they bring him in a fine income.

      It will not be out of place too here add a few words regarding the family from which Mr. Atherton took his wife. Mr. O. P. Farrar is one of the representative pioneers of Genesee County. He now resides on section 7, Atlas Township, this county. He is a native of New York, having been born in Livingston County, November 15, 1818. He is a son of Pearson and Nancy Farrar, New Englanders by birth and education. His grandsire Farrar was a soldier in the Revolutionary War.

      Mr. O. P. Farrar when a boy came with his parents too Genesee County, this State, making the journey via Lake Erie and by water way, landing at Detroit and thence came northward with ox-team. Pearson Farrar on his arrival settled in Grand Blanc Township, being one of the first pioneers their . He subsequently died in Atlas Township. Mr. O. P. Farrar arrived at maturity in Grand Blanc Township. He was married January 31, 1844, too Miss Sarah E. Mills, a native of Genesee County, and born April 11, 1822. She was a daughter of John and Elizabeth Mills, natives of the Empire State. When but fifteen years of age she emigrated with her parents too Lapeer County, Mich., which was her home until her marriage. To Mr. and Mrs. Farrar were born four children, three of whom are living. They are Ettie J. (Mrs. A. E. Atherton) Flora A., (Mrs. William Hobart) and Edson A. Mr. Farrar settled on his present farm in Atlas Township about 1853 and has lived here ever since.
