Letters to the Editor: A Kenny-Colwell Tractor?

Looking for name of the unconventional Kenney-Colwell tractor from Nebraska.

| February 2008

I am looking for the date the Chicago mail-order company, Albaugh-Dover, bought the Kenney-Colwell Co. of Norfolk, Neb. Kenney-Colwell developed an unconventional tractor that the company was eventually named after. What was the name of the unconventional tractor? I would really appreciate it.

Sally Cantrell

The letter from Sally Cantrell in the February 2008 issue of Farm Collector asks about the Square Turn tractor from Norfolk, Neb., built by Albough-Dover. A photo of it is in C.H. Wendel's Standard Catalog of Farm Tractors 1890 to 1960, page 465.

Norfolk is in Madison County. There must be a historical society or museum in Norfolk or Madison. The sheriff's sale of the Nebraska property was in 1925. There might be a legal record. The Harold Warp Pioneer Village museum in Minden, Neb., might have more information or even a tractor: Call (308) 832-1181.
