1928 Stiles—Workmen tearing down the old Perrigo farm house now owned by the Washbisch family found an old town ballot.  Listed on the ballot were the names of John Leigh, Abram Taylor and Mellen Smith for supervisors; Rodney Gillett for treasurer; Henry Volk for clerk; Wm. H.C. Boyd, D.B. Newton and J.O. Keliher for assessor, and O.L. Edwards, Arthur Van Utrecht Wm. Smith and Frank Lelane for the office of justice; Charles Mc Kenzie, Patrick Delaney and Edward Fields for constables.  The letter with the ballot was dated March 1864 so of course these names are only history now.  At that time the town of Stiles embraced what are now Stiles, Oconto Falls and Gillett and the voting place was the Perrigo place being a central location.
