Notes for William Henry Foote:
Born in Lima, NY, as a young boy Will Foote moved with his parents to Michigan in 1842, settling in Grand Blanc, Genesee County, MI. There he married Abby Lankton. They lived for some years in Flint, before settling in Davison in about 1880. Will was unable to serve in the Civil War due to poor health, although two brothers fought for the Union cause.

A prominent citizen in Davison, Will was one of the motivators for the village's incorporation. He was elected President of the Village in March 1892, representing the Peoples Ticket and defeating Village Ticket candidate James Jacobs, 66-59. Will's election spoiled a clean sweep by the Village Ticket, as they won all other Village positions in 1892. Will served only one year as village president, but was elected Trustee in 1894.

Will's personality was marked by forward-thinking, progressiveness, devotion and humor. He owned and operated the Wm. H. Foote & Co. Hardware Store in Davison for many years. In 1894, the store was reported to be doing a business of over $122,000. (Historical Collections, Michigan Pioneer and Historical Society, Vol. XXII, 1894)

In later years, his son-in-law, Seth McBratney became the sole owner of the hardware store. Will's and Seth's senses of humor were evident in their innovative newspaper advertisements. The business was characterized by hard work and honest dealing. He installed the village's first street lamp in front of his house on Davison Street.

Will was an active member of the Baptist Church. He was a charter member of Genesee Lodge 174, Free and Accepted Masons. He died while sitting at the breakfast table. The funeral was held at his home at 2:00 P.M., April 30, 1919 under auspices of the Knights Templar, Rev. H. Huey presiding. The death is recorded with the Genesee County Clerk, Flint.

Notes for Abbie Lankton:
Abby Lankton spent all of her life in Richfield Township, Grand Blanc, Flint and Davison, MI. These four communities are all located within a 10-mile square in central and eastern Genesee County. She married Will Foote in 1858. She raised three daughters and kept house. The family moved to Davison in about 1880. Abby also assisted Will with the family-owned and operated hardware store that provisioned Davison for about 50 years.
