Courtesy of Mr. Harold F. Stephon, 215 N. College St.,
Newcomerstown, Ohio This is a picture of my Dad’s steam engine
and sawmill taken in 1915. The engine is a 16 HP Leader, No. 1801,
built at Marion, Ohio. I do not know what year it was built but I
think about 1900. It was a very good engine. The cylinder size, was
8×12 and had a 42 inch flywheel. I think in 1920 the Leader Company
moved from Marion, Ohio to somewhere in Iowa but I do not know if
they built engines out there or not. I would like to hear from
someone about the. Leader engine. We also had many other makes of
steam engines built in Ohio of which the Russell was the most
popular. For me, however, I like the Frick or Baker engines for all
around work.

Courtesy of Mr. Elmo J. Mahoney, Dorrance, Kansas This picture
shows my father Thomas B. Mahoney, Dorrance, Kansas and owner of
this outfit, in the white shirt, standing on the Separator which is
a 42 x 70 inch Avery Separator. The extension feeder that you see
in this picture is known as the Avery low-down feeder. Dad was the
inventor of that feeder and received $5.00 royalty on each feeder
sold. The engine is the first, number one Under-Mounted 30 HP Avery
Steam Engine ever built. There were, two of these engines built the
first year and ray father bought both of them. I believe this was
in 1904 or 1905. This picture was taken in September, 1908. They
are threshing headed grain and set has just been completed.
