The scoop on Jenkins

| February 2007

This is in reply to a question in the November 2006 issue of Farm Collector, where Mr. Jenkins wanted to know about a cast iron seat with the name "Jenkins" on it. I have one of the seats.

In the past in Chillicothe, Mo., there was a Jenkins rake factory. It no longer exists. They manufactured Bull rakes and stackers. They had a cast iron seat with the Jenkins name cast in the seat. They had their own foundry and cast their own parts.

Mr. Jenkins may get more information by writing to the Livingston County Library or the Livingston County Historical Society or Museum, both in Chillicothe.
