The engine is a 60 H.P. and the thresher is a 42 x 70 Yellow
Fellow.

This rig was shipped to Crosby from the factory on a flat car in
the early spring of 1910. It was used that year and the next two
years for breaking, for some of the early settlers in the vicinity
of Crosby. From 1913 through 1916 it was used entirely for
threshing.

This engine pulled a twelve bottom steam lift breaker plow. Coal
was used for fuel. When used for threshing, they had fourteen
bundle wagons, and 2 spike pitchers. Two tanks were used to haul
water.

This rig was sold sometime after 1916. It was used for threshing
until about 1920, then was junked, just prior to World War II.

The car in the picture is a 1914 Reo.

Threshing wheat October 5, 1967, We had about 600 people at the
Threshing Day.

This is a 25 x 75 Case and a 28 x 46 Separator.
