  • Notes 
    • In 1910-1911, Mayor Levi Graybill made strenuous efforts to have King Street paved, as it had been in a very rough condition for a number of years, but he died early in 1911 before action was taken. His good work bore fruit, however, and later in the same year, steps were taken to provide this much needed improvement.1a
