And a few quotes to start the New Year Only a baker can make
dough and loaf. Duty makes us do things well, but love makes us do
them beautifully. Use not today what tomorrow will need. A man in
the right with God on his side, is in the majority though he be
alone. Hope you’re enjoying a blessed holiday season and have a
beautiful New Year! Love Ya!
Steamcerely, Anna Mae
LUMAN R. CRANZ died recently I consider it a privilege to have
known and neighbored with this kind and gentle man of so many
abilities. Luman excelled in all that was constructive. He had been
a school teacher, homebuilder, well driller, machinist, blacksmith,
pilot and engineer. He was a mason for over fifty years and had
served on many local boards as well as many steam shows in northern
Ohio where he was seen with his beautiful 19 horse Baker.
His gentle understanding and willingness to help his fellow man
will be missed but not forgotten.

CLARENCE D. ESCHENBRENNER, age 76, passed away July 3, 1982. He
was an avid reader of the Iron-Men Album because he loved steam. As
a young man in southern Ohio, he helped with his father’s steam
engine and threshing crews. He went to steam shows and traveled to
ride trains pulled by steam engines. He believed steam was great in
the past and would be great in the future. He tried to pass on his
great love to his grandchildren.

The death on October 1, 1982 of FRED J. HART of Wayne, Ohio, at
the age of 97 marks the turning of one of the few remaining pages
in the life stories of men involved in the great
mechanical-industrial revolution era which shaped the growth of our
country. His knowledge and creative genius as a steam engineer gave
him wide recognition among his contemporaries. He maintained an
avid interest to the end. It is noteworthy that his friends were
able to give him public recognition at the Antique Engine Show held
It is because of individuals like Fred that our mechanical
technology made such phenomenal growth.
