Milburn Wagon Shop

In a letter from Elias FASHBAUGH to his brother-in-law, Frederick HARTL INE dated 10 September 1874, Elias describes going into a wagon shop bu siness. This photo is believed to depict that wagon shop. A close-up of t he people in the photo can be seen HERE. The people are believed to be, f rom the left; Frederick HARTLINE, Rachel (BEEZLEY) FASHBAUGH, Elias FAS HBAUGH, Jacob FASHBAUGH and Catharine (MOCK) FASHBAUGH. Here is an exce rpt from Elias' letter: "So a few weeks ago they got at me, that is, Mr Runyan, a wagon maker h ere and Jacob Gardner who is working in the shop, to buy out the junior p artner of the firm Runyan & Scholl, Carriage and Wagon Makers and as th ey have been doing a good business. I thought I would try it for a whil e and now we would like to send you a wagon gotten up in Tip Top Style f or your own use and as a sample for you to take orders by for." "Write to us and tell us what you think about it and if you want one se nt. Would you want it on a wide track? Our price here for 2 horse wagon s is all finished with lock, spring seat, top box and stay chains is $8 5 cash, $90 on time. Buggies is from $150 to $325."

It is uncertain as to the location of this shop. It might have been in M ilford, Van Buren Township or Pierceton, Washington Township or another t own altogether. If you have any information on where this shop was loca ted, please contact either Jim Hartline or Gene Andert.
