Monroe County, MI Biographies

A prosperous farmer on section eight of Erie township, was born in Erie March 24, 1836, the son of James and Sarah (Agnew) Muihollen, and on December 29, 1861, was married to Anna, daughter of Elihu and Maria (Wilson) Hall, who is the mother of three children, two girls, Estella and Carrie, both living at home, and one boy, Henry, who was married February 14, 1890, to May Hall. The farm of one hundred acres is pleasantly located on the old Government road, about seven miles south of Monroe, and was purchased by his father, and on which he was living at the time of his death. In politics Mr. Muihollen has always been a Democrat, but has always refused to accept any offices at the hands of his political party.

His father. James, was for twelve or fifteen years township supervisor, and deputy county sheriff for several years. In 1839 while holding the latter office he attempted to recapture a counterfeiter, who had made his escape from the county jail, and pursuing him as far as the Waterloo farm, after a severe fight, during which the criminal cut off all the buttons on his vest, was compelled to kill the fugitive in defense of his own life.
