      -January 12, 1877, the corporation boundaries were again extended and a small piece of territory between Water street and Whetstone Creek was annexed to the village, which is included in the following boundaries: "Beginning on the west bank of the Whetstone Creek at the northwest corner of lands owned by the heirs of William Hinds, thence eastwardly down said creek on the north line of said William Hinds' lands and lands of J. H. Coulter, excluding his flouring mill, following his east and south lines west to his southeast corner; thence west on the center of the State road to the east line of the present incorporated limits of said village on Water street; thence on said line north to the northwest corner of lands of the heirs of John Hinds aforesaid; thence on the north line of said lands east to the place of beginning, including all the lands within said bounds except the mill as specified.
      PAGE 704 HISTORY OF MARION COUNTY
      -Merchants' Mills.-This was built about. 1859, by Mr. Harmon; it was two stories high and had one pair of wheat buhrs and one of chopping. After running the mill until 186 7 or 1868, Mr. Harmon sold it to G. G. Freeman, who put in new works. A year or two afterward, he sold it to Frederick Fisher, by an assignee, who made some repairs and then sold to J. H. Coulter, Roberts, Rinker, McNutt and Coulter. J. H. Coulter now owns the Merchants' Mill.

      Marion Daily Star 1885 February 6
      Report reaches us that J.H. Coulter, proprietor of the Merchant Flour Mills at Caledonia, has assigned for the benefit of his creditors. Mr. Coulter was supposed to be in a prosperous condition, financial, and his action in assigning is quite a surprise to all acquainted with him.
      Marion Daily Star 1885 February 7
      The report of an assignment by J.H. Coulter, of Caledonia, is authoritively contradicted, we are glad to state. We published the report on information from one who seemed to know, but didn't.

      Attorneys J.H. Coulter and J. G. Meuser were over from Galion attending court Tuesday.
      Marion Daily Star 1887 February 18
      The assignee's sale of 175 acres of Harvey Coulter's land to Thomas Kennedy was confirmed in court today. The 175 acres in Tully Township sold at little over $28 per acre, two-thirds of the appraisement, and is certainly one of the greatest bargains ever given in Marion County real estate. The land is well worth $50 to $60 per acre, and sold in any other way than under the hammer or by an assignee would have brought that sum.
