John Hogg was a wealthy businessman living in Mt Pleasant. He sold whiskey in his general store to which the villagers were opposed. The temperance society members visited all the houses in the township collecting signatures to ask Hogg to refrain from selling alcohol. Reportedly only two people did not sign. We have copies of the petitions! (John Hogg said that some of his best customers were on the petition. )😆
