The Case was built in 1921, Mfg. No. 35031, and sold that year to a Mr. Harnish in southern Lancaster County, Pa. It was used for threshing and baling until the combines took over.

After that it was used for feed grinding on the farm.

In late 1963 the tractor was purchased from Mr. Harnish by A. D. Mast. In about 1967 Ebersol bought it from Mast and restored it. He still has the original operator's manual and parts book.

Ebersol is an honorary lifetime member of the Rough and Tumble Engineers, receiving his gold membership card at the 1972 annual banquet. He has been at all the Rough and Tumble Reunions at Kinzers since it was organized. He has shown this machine there, and has charge of a few of the Corliss engines at the Reunions.



The RR crossing sign was obtained from the Pennsylvania Railroad, now Penn Central, when the old models were replaced by new types. It holds three mailboxes, and is a surprising sight to see along a quiet country road. Autoists look in vain for locomotives in the adjoining cornfield. Courtesy of Gerry Lestz, Editor

This old photograph, taken in 1915, gives a person an insight into farming operations at that time, and the magnitude of 'big' power operations - 5 seeders being drawn by a 32 - 110 D. S. REEVES steamer! Owners were W. H. Jurney & Sons, Vulcan, Alberta. One of the sons is my Father. Altogether, the family owned and operated FIVE Reeves steamers; they were the popular 'make' with my folks. W.H. Jurney [my Grandfather] came to Alberta with his three sons, one daughter, and Grandma Jurney about 1906. They came from Carthage, Jasper County,. Missouri. They remained in Canada.
