Early day threshing (1884) in Miller Gulchnow called Ramsey Gulch, 7 miles north and 8 miles east of Salem, South Dakota

I received this picture from S. H. Sweet, Conova, South Dakota, September 8, 1958. Mr. Sweet is 81 years old now. He was just a boy when this picture was taken. Firing with wood and used a team of horses to help pull and guide the engine. This is one of the first steam threshing rigs in McCook County, South Dakota. It is a chain drive but what make of an engine is it? (Elmer will take a guess a Heilman).
