Raymond Mattox of Crete, IL has some steam memories to share with readers this issue. Raymond writes:
A Case steam engine I currently own once belonged to my grandfather Elbert Mattox. He was from Bradley, IL near Kankakee. Elbert was a member of the Pontiac Thresherman's Assn. The engine does not have a number on it. I think the year it was built was circa 1902. I don't know how long Elbert owned it.
When Elbert passed away my father, John Mattox, inherited it. When my father passed away 10 years ago, it was passed on to me.
