Since my article 'Custom Steam Threshing' in the September/October 1992 IMA, some more water ran under the bridge!

Previous to that, in April 1986, Mother died. About a year later, brother Daniel moved back to Ohio, in the Jeromesville area on the former Gardner farm at 254 C. R. 1675.

Approximately a year later, Father also moved onto that farm. He built a nice little cottage and a two story metal and woodworking shop. This was his retirement pastime. Last spring he died at age 80, nearly 81, after a very busy life.

Just last week, our family got together for the estate sale. Brother Daniel also sold his cows and most of the farm machinery, as he sold the farm to Gary Gardner, a son of the former owners.

It so happened about a year and a half ago, the Gardner family had given a picture to Daniel and he had forwarded it to me. The picture shows an early threshing crew on this farm. Some things have changed on the barn since, but it is plain to see it's the same barn.
