Daniel Barth. Dan was born on May 14, 1892 and died on July 10, 1961. Dan was one of the founders of the Richland County Steam Threshers.

His death was just four weeks before the 7th Annual Richland County Steam Threshers Show and was a shock to those who worked with him and played with him in his hobby of Steam. He purchased an engine in 1953 and through lots of work and cost had an engine at his death that was a credit to any place that it was shown. His passing left a gap in our club that will never be replaced.

General John A. Logan. General Logan was born March 5, 1896 and died on August 30, 1961. 'Gen' as he was known to nearly all of those who knew and worked with him, started in the threshing and saw milling business when he was 15 years old, and was active in this work with his brother Earl until his death. 'Gen' was a prominent figure at all of the Richland County Steam Shows and was always willing to lend help as well as advice on matters pertaining to the steam workings. The Gaar Scott engines and Aultman Taylor threshers were his standby's. His passing leaves a gap in the ranks of the old timers which will never be replaced.
