  • Notes 

    • -- MERGED NOTE ------------

      Mr. R. R. Hilliard of Bowling Green made arrangements with the General Union Bell Co. to run their telephone line to Perrysburg on upon the agreement of providing at least 50 subscribers. By January of 1900, most of the work was well under way. Business phones paid $21 per year, residence $18. Miss Katie Waltz of Bowling Green took care of the exchange during the day and Miss Maud Croft did the extra hours. By April there were 60 subscribers. Soon after Miss Waltz resigned and then Miss Croft took over the day work. Miss Lulu Volk was the night operator. Toledo was a toll call. After three years it was necessary to install a second switchboard to handle the long distance calls. Miss Ruby LaFarree was the long distance operator, with Miss Amelia Pfiester as substitute. Robert Thronton [sic] took over the night exchange.
      In 1904, the Maumee Valley Telephone Co. took over Mr. Hilliard's exchange. Officers of the new company were: Pres. J. Davis; Vice-Pres. A. C. Fuller; Treas. N. L. Hanson; Sec'y and Gen. Mgr. R. R. Hilliard. A year later, the Northern Ohio Telephone Co. took over the exchange at Perrysburg, Maumee and Waterville with W. F. Robinson Pres.; H. M. Perrin Vice-Pres.; C. F. Chapman Jr. Sec'y., and J. S. Brailey Treas. with Mr. Hilliard as manager. There were now, in 1905, 575 subscribers. In August 1905, M. C. Canfield became manager and he was followed by M. V. Jerret in 1908, with Sadie Klinger as chief operator and Edith Hatcher. In the meantime the Ohio Bell became the owners of the exchange.
