Title They Came by Ship and Ox Team
Description flowing well This flowing well still has a good stream of delicious cold water The well produced enough water for home and garden as well To keep milk, butter and eggs cool, a box was placed over the water with a burlap sack wrapped around it to absorb the cold water and allow fresh air to cool and circulate This "cool box," as it was called, was used for many years Pigs, chickens and garden produce helped their food supply, as well as grain that was raised on the rich, fertile fields. The large meadows were ideal for cattle. This, the "Old Farm," provided well for Grandpa's growing family As the log cabin became too small, they added four rooms of brick to the front of the log house. A one-room school house two miles west of their home was welcomed by the family of twelve children They all had a great desire for education About 1900, Grandpa Augustus was stricken with rheumatism, so they built a beautiful brick home in town at First North and Fifth West, where they spent the remainder of their lives During these years. Grandpa saw a good opportunity for his growing boys to go into the sheep business. He directed them and helped with what he could from his "rocking chair," used in place of a wheel chair as he became unable to get around As the business grew, they became known as the "Nelson brothers." Their faith and strength have left a great legacy to continually growing posterity. We still refer to and love to visit the "Old Farm," with its flowing well and memories of days gone by. -Taken from Family Histories. 37
