      Eby, Ezra E. (1895).

      _________________________

      Mr. I. Hilborn was born at Speedsville, near Preston, Ont. In early manhood he engaged in farming in Waterloo Township and later purchased a farm a short distance south-east of Elmira. Although a successful farmer, he sold out in 1895 and came to Elmira. He became interested in the Winger Woollen and Felt Co. and was Secretary for several years. When the Elmira Felt Co. organized, he became one of the principal stock holders as well as secretary of the company which position has since filled successfully.

      ______________________

      The largest stock-holder in the Elmira Felt Co. (Limited) whose total stock amounts to $20,000, is Mr. Isaac Hilborn, a gentleman well known and highly respected, who has been a resident of Elmira and vicinity for many years. His experience as Secretary-Treasurer of the Winger Woollen and Felt Co., has fitted him for a similar position in this company. He is known as a careful and intelligent manager of finances and will no doubt be a valuable officer.3a
