Comments:

My mother's family first moved to Plato Center about 1940. Ina and Hosea Harriss moved from Beloit to Plato with their 3 children, Jenylle, Tommy and Luke. My grandfather was a sign painter and my grandmother worked at the milk plant and at Hitzeroth's Store. My parents married in the Plato Church when it was still in it's original location. They lived with my grandmother and the boys in the 2-story white house right to the east of the old Muirhead Store. I was born in St. Joseph's in Elgin in February of 1947. My parents were not yet 21. My mother worked in Hitzeroth's Store and my father drove the school bus. It was very, very cold that February morning and my father wasn't sure their old model T, or maybe it was a model A, would start so he had the school all ready to drive to Elgin. The car started, but they couldn't leave until my grandmother found her girdle! Anyway it all came out fine and I spent my first year in Plato Center.
