MR. ALLEN MESSINGER WRITES HIS LIFE STORY


I was born Sept. 16, 1864. My parents died when I was six or seven. I had a hard road to travel. At sixteen I ran away. I spent one year in New Jersey and one in New York. I had a guardian, and some money due me at eighteen. The guardian lived in New York then. I worked my way through a gymnasium and earned a small salary. I also knew how to handle a gun. At eighteen I went to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Mt. Vernon. Here I hired out for nine months at $20. per month. I bought a young horse for $105. In the fall of 1883, Franklin Sloyer and family moved from Easton to Iowa on a farm two miles from where I worked. In all the surrounding country the Presbyterians were prominent. I was close to the church and took part in the singing, and, Oh boy, of all the pretty girls, ten in number. We had a great many social entertainments. Of all the jealousy you ever saw. We used to pick our girls for lunch, paid $ .10 each. Some cried, a time of your life.
William Hess and John Mark Sloyer were partners in wood cutting on their farm. Irwin Sloyer wanted me as a partner. So I also made my home with the already large family. With my four year old horse I broke in a young team, three year olds that never had a halter on before. Clara’s father, Franklin, bought them. He paid $300. No one but I had to break them in. First I rode them, then one at a time aside of my four year old. When we cut wood we paid $2.50 per week (board). We cut 138 cords of wood @ $1. per cord. Also 1156 fence posts @ $1 .50 per 100.
In the spring of 1884 1 sold my horse for $120., and left for Wood River, Neb., to the frontier. I worked on a cattle ranch. Here is where some of our fun started, some more of that jealousy through the only daughter of the ranchman. Four of us worked there. Then one, the last, he hired before I started. Now came the day to break the bronco. First the second oldest tried him out. Then the jealous one. Both were bucked off. This jealous one said, “now for the Eastern Dude.” “Yes”, said the girl, “he can beat you.” “I’ll bet $5”. “Here is $5. said John.” Here is the other said the girl and put it in her father’s hand. John, said the father, “I’m afraid you will loose.” I got on after they had him in a small stall fenced in with a gate on one side. “Open up,” said I, and I hung on until he gave up. Then 1 put the spurs to him and he gave up. I jumped off. “You lost John,” roared the girl Olia Ramsell. I got the five dollars, “You think your smart,” said John. “Yes, I did better than you did,” said I. “Yes, the Eastern Dude thinks he can always do better than any one else, said John. So I said, “John. if your not satisfied, there is still another way to settle it, I’m ready.” “So am I, said John,” and we did settle it for fair. I blackened both his eyes, knocked him down, and I on top still pounding him until he said, “Enough.” Mr. Ramsell went to the house, got some money, and said to John, “here is your money, you’re fired.”
Shortly after that Olia said, “Al, lets take a ride, I want to see two of my girl friends.” We started on a Sunday morning, a drive of about ten miles. “Have you got your gun,” she said. “No,” said I, “we don’t need any gun.” She said, “Always”. I got my gun and strapped it on. After driving eight miles, we saw a man riding towards us, and it was John. “Well,” he said, “I’ll get you now,” and he reached for his gun. I drew on him and shot him a flesh wound on his wrist. His gun fell to the ground, and I up and got it. Olia said. “John. if it hadn’t been for Al who hit your wrist, you would have killed both of us. Where are you staying?” “None of your business,” said John. I pulled my gun from the holster. I said, “speak or I’ll shoot”. “Don’t Al,” said John, “I’m staying down here at Tom Weavers.” “We’re going there,” said I. “Take the lead.” When we landed, Weaver knew me. I explained about John and Weaver gave him a talking to. I gave Weaver orders to hide his gun so John couldn’t get it. We left for home in due time, but I always kept myself prepared for him.
In the fall, when I left for Iowa again, they all wanted me to stay, but I promised to be back in the spring of 1885. With a good bye, I left. It was before Christmas, and soon my father in law, as it turned out later, left for Kansas. Clara’s mother always wanted me to take the lead. The boys, like a great many others, liked to go to different places, more so than I did. We had a great deal of corn, hay and oats to haul to market. We also held a sale for a great many things. I still would write to Olia, but one day, before we moved to Kansas, Clara was looking through my trunk for patches for my everyday shirts. She found a letter I had written that day to Olia while it rained. Next day I had intended to mail it. We went to a spelling school that evening, but Clara did not care to go. When the rest of us got home they all went to bed but I, Clara was still sitting by the stove. She did not say a word. Finally I said, “What is wrong with you?” She said, “Yes, you ask. When did you write that letter?” “What letter said I?” “Why the one I found in your trunk.” I said, “No, I did not write.” “I will go and get it.” I opened it. “You are a good one,” she said, and I had to admit. “Well,” I said, “I had a right to write that letter.” “Yes,” she said, “but you had no business to run the Iowa girls down. Now then, we can soon settle this matter. Will you stick to me if I stick to you?” The answer was yes. I got three more letters, but I never wrote again.
A little later Frank Sloyer rented a fine farm of 240 acres. We made the move in February (1885). We all had plenty to do. It was very cold, and this young team I drove in were so scared, that it took both Irwin and I to hitch them up. We had a full carload to unload and store in a barn. On a Saturday at one P.M. we left Atchison, Kansas for Muscotah, Kansas to Henry Moore. Quite a deep snow lay on the ground. We made 19 miles by dark. Had a good load and the team was tired out. I talked to a farmer while they were eating supper and asked if we might put up for the night. After awhile they agreed for us to stay. We had our supper, lodging, and breakfast. I paid them $2.50. We left at ten A.M. Sunday morning. Had six miles to go. There was more snow and it was 1 P.M. when we arrived. How glad we were. On Monday we took the team and load to Ache’s. Later I came back to Moore’s. Clara and Emma were there at Ache’s. Ache’s sure had a house full. Moore was well fixed, financially. He was a partner with a rich man named Briggs in the hardware business. He was also post-master at Muscotah.
They were fine people and all their friends will appreciate their loyal by-gone deeds which will not be forgotten. Now we were all together with the Ache family, seventeen in number. How we managed, is hard for me to explain. Three or four of Ache’s children were dead and three or four were living at this time. Mr. Ache had a lot of corn in the field to husk, and all that could work, did so. Spring was in sight. Clara’s mother and I made the first trip to the 240 acre farm. The cook stove was set up, and wood was cut to start the fire. We had beds, bedding, and a fair load of furnishings. We had five miles to go and the roads were bad. By dark we were through, and potatoes, beans, bread, butter, and molasses enough for a king. I was up first the next morning. I fed the horses, built the fire and had the beans on the stove. They used to have a lot of fun about the beans we had for breakfast. By noon we were back to Ache’s. Next, Franklin bought a mule team for which he paid S300. Soon Irwin and I went to Atchison after two loads of furniture, and shortly after we moved for good. I suppose Ache’s were glad when we moved but they did not show it. The corn was all in the crib. I would like to see how high a stack of corn cakes it would have made, for that was the main dish. No bread was used. Leanna was a hard worker, kind, gentle, and was praised by all she came in contact with. We lived but two miles from the Indian Reservation. We would often go there, especially when their war dance was on. I have taken a hand many a time in their dances, but never in ours.
Irwin worked for other men on the farm in order to earn money for himself. He was a hard worker and later when he married they had a nice little farm of 40 acres. He raised mostly alfalfa. Now he sold this farm and bought a farm of 80 acres. From there he went into the bakery business in Topeka, Kansas. Here his wife died. Before this, Irwin and John Mark operated a thrashing machine and wood sawing outfit. John Mark and I stayed on the farm. August 7, 1885 we married and hired out to a farmer. John Mark married Clara Zimmerman. She fell heir to some money. In 1888 they bought 160 acres of land 10 miles north of Emporia, Kansas. When his mother died, John Mark carried an insurance of $1000 on her. He went into the cattle business and made some money. Later he sold out and went into the feed business in Emporia, Kansas. He continued in this business until he died. He was fairly well to do.
After two years, Franklin moved to Straight Creek, about ten miles away. He rented a farm of 160 acres, paid cash rent of 560 dollars. John Mark was with them prior to the time he bought his own farm. This was an off year, too wet. They were sold out by the sheriff as they had given mortgage to satisfy for the rent. They lost all but their furniture. They moved to Horton, Kansas 18 miles. I had a team and moved them on a Saturday. Clara was sitting on top of the load of furniture and drove the 18 miles. That night Frank, our son was born, a baby weighing 12 pounds. Frank had a nice bunch of hogs which we fattened for market, as we lived on the outskirts of town. Clara’s father got some stone and brick work to do, also some plastering, and I helped all I could.
We never felt contented, just moved and moved. In 1890 we moved to Fremont, Ohio, and soon Franklin Sloyer and family came to Ohio, all but John Mark and Emma Cahill who lived in Horton, Kansas. Emma and family came on a visit, when soon there were eight patients bedfast with Typhoid. They were, Charles Cahill, Estella, Lillie, Edward, Samuel, Thomas, William, and Clara’s mother. This was the most enduring publicity in their whole career, and sad to say, the most endearing mother was taken from our most needed midst. We lived on a small farm two miles from town. We worked hard. Haying time we had twelve acres of clover, which was very good. Clara and I put up all the hay without any extra help. The second crop I cut for seed. We had 28 bu. of the finest seed. I sent a sample to John Osterstock of Easton, PA. He was in the hardware business. He sent me new 2 bu. sacks and paid all expenses. He paid me $13. per bu. I owned a hay baler and baled 10 tons (a car load). I shipped it to Buffalo and got $12.50 per ton on track. I made good money. Now back to the Sloyer family.
John Mark took William sometime later. Edward learned the carpenter trade and was very good at it. We got a letter from Helen Sloyer, the only daughter of Edward Sloyer. Her address is Route 5, 1 3X59, South Takoma, Washington. Later the Sloyer family scattered. Franklin made sale after which he made his home with the children, with us a great deal. After moving so often, and our furniture got over its sea-sawing movements, in 1905 it started in earnest. All had gone west except our family and Ida. I had gone to Oklahoma in August and filed on a homestead. After having sale, we moved in October. I chartered two cars; paid $282.82 I put one horse in each car. By so doing I got a pass with each car. Frank, one of my boys and I held our pass. We put our mattress close to the roof of the car where I hid Charles and Alvin. Left a small man hole for them to crawl out while the train was in motion. Clara, Lillie, Verna and Floyd went by passenger train. When we arrived at Guymon, Oklahoma, I went to the land office and found that another man had filed on our claim. This was unlawful, but I did not have time to fight it. Our cars were side tracked to be unloaded by the next day (Sunday) but had until Monday. Before leaving Ohio, an old man turned his filing paper over to me, saying, it might do me some good. This quarter was located across the road southwest from the one I had filed on. I took this paper to a lawyer and explained it to him. His answer was, “You go and move on it, it is yours.” So we did. We had two tents. About one P.M. we started for our claim, 24 miles distant. We made twenty miles on good roads. Our team was tired. We put up at Hardesty, a small store and postoffice. We slept in the barn and did our own cooking. Sunday morning while we had a strip of sand to go through, we got hung up, and had to use a shovel. I hired a neighbor to go along on Monday with four horses on one wagon and two on another. I paid $30. to them. Went one day and came back the next. I put alot of farming tools in a barn. Later in the week I went and met the train bringing the rest of the family.
We built a two room house as quickly as possible. We dug out what we called a one-half dugout, which we used as a kitchen. In it we had one bed. We had a storm cave, a hen house, a sod smoke house, a sod shed for our spring wagon, shed room to stable 23 head of stock, and a large grainery. We had a garden fenced off with woven wire, also a large hog lot. The 160 acres were all fenced in. And 120 acres were cross fenced. We broke out a good well, 165 feet deep and put up a wind pump. Clara’s health would not permit me to stay in Oklahoma. The third year we farmed 240 acres and put it all in wheat. Before that we had 110 in broom corn, 40 acres of kaffir corn and 90 acres of Milo Maize. But we did not get near what we should have had. I gave one third delivered to market. Broom corn was on our claim. We had over 8 tons of finished broom corn and got 100 dollars per ton only for the third year. Other years from 40 to 50 dollars per ton. Some of our wheat was hailed out. We thrashed 1010 bushels. The feed crop was poor. We farmed four years, from 1905 to 09. We had 23 head of horses and cattle. Then we made sale. Sold one horse, some farming tools, and some furniture. We rigged up three covered wagons and had a good spring wagon, one driving team, six work horses, four two year olds. By this time our daughter Lillie was married and we had to leave her. October 1909 we said good by, yet we were in Oklahoma three times since. We started on a Tuesday morning, were heavy loaded. We drove 100 miles in 4 days. Friday afternoon a cold chilly rain started. We drove to Fowler, Kansas. We put all our horses in a livery barn. Saturday morning it rained hard. After we had our breakfast, Frank and Charles went along to the depot. I asked the agent how much it would cost me to charter a car to Horton, Kansas. He said, “For $50. you can go to Kansas City, St. Louis, Horton, or St. Joseph, and I can have a car here so you can load Sunday night to pull out at 11 A.M.” I said, “all right,” and I paid him. The boys were satisfied. When we got to the wagons I said to Clara, “Get ready and take Floyd and Verna along on the train by 1 P.M.” “What is wrong with you, are you getting crazy?” I said, “No, I see quite an expense ahead. Cold and chilly, we would take a big chance. Clara was glad. That afternoon there was a street sale. We sold one covered wagon, five shoats, that weighed 840 lbs. We got the market price, $.08 a pound. Also sold 40 nice hens at $.08 a lb. Then I had another job on my hands. I had twelve head of horses, and was allowed to take only ten. So I had to part with two 2 year-olds, matched and well worth at least $200. I got $102.50 for them. They were trotting stock. We had 293 miles to go. I fixed up a box of lunch. We loaded our car in time. 1 only had one pass, so 1 had the three boys to keep hid. After we had about 100 miles to go yet, one of the horses broke loose. I was in the way car in the back end. They were taking on a few more cars, when Frank was spied. “Have you a pass?” the brakeman said. “No. Who has? My father. Where is he? On the back car.” They then pulled out. Then the brakeman said to me, “Is that your boy in the horse car?” I said, “Yes, what about it?” “You will have to pay for him,” said brakeman. I said, “1 have no money.” The brakeman said, “Then we will have to put him off.” I said, “Just so you put him off at a depot.” Soon we were transferred on the Horton Branch. The old crew went on to Kansas City, so it was all over.
We arrived at Horton between two and three Monday, were back to the chute, unloaded the horses and fed them. Then we went up town for lunch. When we returned a lock was on the car door. I went to the agent saying, what does that lock do on our car? $13.41 for over weight. No I said, I’m allowed 23,000 lbs. I went up town, got a lawyer I knew, and explained it to him. He said, “Al, I will go along down.” I had to pay it, but we loaded everything, drove up town on a large Cole scale; had the dealer to make out a bill, and we had 16,457 lbs. The lawyer turned it over to the railroad company. In two weeks I got my money back. No charge from the lawyer. We drove to Emma Cahill over night. Then we had eighteen miles to go to Granada, Kansas, where we put up for the winter with Edward Sloyer, Clara’s brother. There was a large barn for our horses. Rent was $20. I paid 1/2 and 2/3 of the food that was bought. We all ate together. We had taken on 100 acres to husk. We went out with three teams. We got three cents per bu. and our dinner. But I’m ahead of my story. I had shipped 2900 lbs of furniture to Ed, along with a duplicate bill of lading. The freight was prepaid. Same stamped on the duplicate. The agent claimed it was not paid. So Ed paid it again. $3. for hauling, all tolled, $32.40. Ed, I said, it was prepaid. Look at your bill. Here I had the original bill. We drove to the depot six miles. I made that agent look down his nose. I got my money back. Some of our furniture was damaged. So I said I had to put in a claim with the claim agent. Yes, said the agent. So I marked some of the damaged furniture. My claim was $60. and it was almost a year before I got $44.
By the spring of 1910 1 rented a farm of 196 acres. Paid 1000. dollars rent. I bought 3 hogs. Fattened them butcher. Before we moved in March, 1 bought all of Ed’s chickens. We had 8 cows. I bought another horse for extra three horse team. My driving team I did not work much except for driving. Now in Oklahoma we dried up. This year we drowned out. 40 acres of our best bottom land overflowed two times. We got 2-1/2 bu. of small corn per acre. The 60 acres upland was good. Oats were good. Had a fine lot of Timothy, Clover and Alfalfa.
Again I became disatisfied. March 1911 we made sale, sold all crops; hay, corn and oats. Out of our summers work we had $1.37 left after the rent was paid. I made some money on the cows but lost on the horses. Tools sold good. I kept a good team of horses, and one of the driving horses. Again we loaded a car for Topeka, Kansas. We had a house to move in. Frank, Charles, and Alvin hid in the car. I had a pass. We only had fifty miles to go. The rest of the family went by train. All went fine. Car cost twenty dollars. The three boys put in their application at the Santa Fe office. Alvin started soon. Frank learned the baker trade. Charles drove a team for a paper company. I sold one horse for $110.; the other for $140. The young driving horse I broke for single use. He was fast.
1 traded a good farm wagon for a new buggy which was guaranteed for six months. Before the six months were up I went to the dealer, saying, “look at my buggy wheels.” He said, how long have you had them. I said, about five months. The agent is here now. I’ll send him out. He looked them over, saying, come in. He took me to the dealer, saying, give this man a new set of wheels. Take them off that new buggy and send the old ones to Kansas City. I would not let any one pass me on the streets if I could help it. When this horse was seven past I sold him to a woman for $175. and gave her a written guarantee. Mr. Sloyer, I suppose you get tired reading my story, but this is real. I was in the grocery business three times. I farmed in eight different states, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Ohio, Kansas, Iowa, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Washington.
I’m a painter by trade. I was in the milk business in Ohio. Clara and I took care of 15 milk cows before our children were old enough to help us. Poor health took me out of this, but I bought milk from farmers. Made two trips daily to town in summer and one in winter, and sold the milk for $.06 quart. I was in the Real Estate business; Detective work; watchman for Wolf and Co., a large slaughter company in Topeka; also watchman for one of the largest clothing firms. I have never been arrested and never been in a law suit. During the World War I was a conductor on a Street car. In October 1917 we had bought a home for $4000. In the fall of 1919 1 sold it for $5500. We made sale and sold everything but bedding and clothes. We then went to Oklahoma, five in the family, Charles, Floyd and Verna, myself and wife.
From here we started for the state of Washington, taking the northern route. Going here we made our mistake. After the war, shipyards laid most of their men off on the Pacific Coast. When strange people come to the Pacific coast the real estate men are after them, just like they were after us. One offered us a fine up to date 7 room French Bungalow for $4500. Instead of driving you direct, they take a round about route where everything looks good to you. We looked the place over. On the back of the lot was a hen house, wood house with about fifteen cords of stove length wood, and two ton of coal. In the building was a cook stove that cost $140., which would burn gas, electric, wood or coal. Also a nice heating stove, and three fine rugs. The price was $4500. for house only, so I started to see what he would do by saying, “what is the least you would take if you would include the furnishings?” “$4800 and I’m ready to go.” “No,” said I. “What will you give me for all? $4000. No I can’t do it.” “It’s up to you,” said I. And we talked for another hour, and I bought the whole business for $4100. After we had bought it we found it was not in the location we wanted to live. Soon we saw an ad in the paper just where we wanted to live. I took my time. The agent lived the second door from this nine room house, a fine well built house with garage. Priced $4000. The owner was a very old rich man whose wife had died. They would not come down in the price. The house needed paint and the yard cleaning. The agent said you can sell it for $5000. The front room had a rug worth $100, a fine brass bed complete, a good heating stove, a lot of nice curtains, and very expensive drapery. I had my mind made up, and finally I bought it all for $4000.
We painted the house, cleaned the lot, and had some of the inside cleaned. Clara was there and we figured on moving there and rent the other, when a man came along from Camp Louis. He was an Eastern man. He said, “Is this house for sale or rent?” I said, “for sale.” “May I look inside.” Sure”, said I. “This is a well built house.” “Yes”, he said, “I have been a builder and contractor. What do you ask for this place?” $4500. I tried to have look at the other house, but he said, “Have you a phone?” Yes. I’ll see you in the morning or call you. About ten A.M. the phone rang. I would like you to come over to the house at once. I’ll be there, but I was looking for you to come over. No this house suits me and I’m ready to finish it up. I had my papers and soon we made the transfer. I said, “can you go along back to your house?” Yes, sure. Have you a rug for the front room. No, I’ll have to buy one. We had it folded and had put it in another room. Lets take it in the front room, there is where it belongs. Oh, that is a dandy. How much. $65. Sold he said. For bed and stove he paid $30. The rest we have some of it yet. Mr. Neikirk, Stella’s husband said, “Al I thought you was going to lose everything you had.” There was no work.
I went to a real estate man 1 could depend on, saying, what have you on a small acreage that we can trade on our home, on a basis of $4500.? He studied. Al, I know of a 10 acre chicken ranch. It belongs to the widowed daughter of the Governor of Washington. We will drive out nine miles on the Pacific Highway. Clara went along. No, I don’t think I’ll trade after seeing our home. Soon after she talked with the real estate man again. No trade, and still a little later I got word to come. We went out and to our surprise, we made an even trade. I gave only the bare house and lot. I got a good six room house, seven hen houses, a large out building with a large tank on top, and an engine to pump the water in this tank. The house had all conveniences. There was also a garage. About 1/2 of the 10 acres was underlaid with water-pipe and hydrants to use hose.
I got a few tools, a small horse and 50 fine barred rock chickens. The trade was made. Paid 2-1/2% commission. I bought a truck. With the high sides I could haul I ton. Paid $325. We moved what wood and coal we had left and had all furniture moved. I had advertised for one week for painting but no answer. Now said I, the truck will be advertised for sale or trade. The second day a farmer called me over the phone. I have no car or I might come and see it. What is your price. $500. What would you trade it on. I want three fresh cows, a few hogs, chickens and some money. We can make a trade. OK, we will drive the truck to your place tomorrow, will be there by ten A.M. Floyd was good with a car or truck. He used to drive a Taxi cab in Topeka, and always had renewed his driving card.
We met our man at the barn the next day. He looked it over and said, “Well it looks good.” “Yes,” said I, “it is good”. “Now you want three fresh cows. Yes. I have 15 head in the pasture. He had 240 acres of land. You pick them out and I will give you my best price. How much for them three. This one $85. That one $100. And that one $100. Cows like those were high. I’m satisfied I said. Now we will go to dinner.” “Then” said he, “now you want some hogs. Yes. I have 18 head I am fattening. Pick what you want.” One weighed about 250 lbs., the other two 125 lbs each. Hogs sold for $19. per 100. “How much for them? Oh well, hesitating a little, $50. All right. Now you want some chickens, how many do you want? How many can you spare? 50 head. At how much per head? $1.25. Chickens were high. Then I have two imported roosters I’ll throw them in with the bargin. I’m satisfied.” He had about 300 bu. of potatoes which he was feeding to the stock. Price was low. “Now we will figure the bill.” It was S397.50. I will give you three burlap sacks for that makes it even $400. Then I said the $100 in cash. All right was the answer. Now you want to haul your trade home. Yes but the truck is yours. Come on. We put two cows and the hogs on the truck. So we did and went home. The next day we went back, got one cow, chickens were crated and potatoes. We went home rejoicing. The third day we delivered the truck. Had to stay for dinner each day, and got my check for $100. I never saw the man after that.
Now I had 100 head of chickens. The last lot were all what they called the white rock. Now I raised some oats and cut it for hay. After the cows got used to the place, we would turn them out on free range, and had the horse to go after them. We plowed the ground with the horse and harrowed it. But I was beat for the first time on soil, yet I took a spade to test it and it was nice dark loam. The side I had in oats was in sod, all the horse could pull. This soil was so loose it let the rain soak away as fast as it fell. This I kept by myself. With a great deal of hen manure we did raise a nice amount of cucumbers and sold them. I had to use the hose with all the rain we had. We sold eggs, butter and cottage cheese. The cows did fine. I milked them until they got nearly dry. I sold the $85. cow for same. The fat hog we killed for our own use in the old Pennsylvania style. The two light hogs were real hogs and I sold them for $55. The two $100. cows I sold for $160. The best deal I ever made considering the amount of money involved. We had alot of blue plums and apples. Now the chickens began to moult. It seemed I couldn’t see a dollar coming in any more.
I advertised to see for $4500. Two men and their wives came from Atchison, Kansas. One was a retired banker. He had bought a grocery stock and living quarters-four rooms of cheap furnishings. The other man wanted to make a little money. He called me up saying would you consider a $1500. grocery stock? Yes, if it is up to date. Oh yes it is. Would you be willing to pay a commission if you work for me? I will hand over $100. OK that is fine. I will bring the gentleman over while his wife looks after the store, and inside of 1 hour they drove in. The first showing I had I told my man what to do. Mr. Wheeler, my man to trade with, sure was well pleased. And I will take care of the store while my friend brings my wife over in the morning. This is just what we have been looking for. When his wife looked it over she was pleased. Oh what a nice lot of chickens, will they go in with the deal? I have not fully made up my mind at this time. Oh I hope you will. Again I said to my man, “Now can you take us to South Takoma to see the store and bring us home again?” Sure he said. I had to admit it was a nice clean stock.
Now Mr. Wheeler will you invoice the stock. Yes I would do that. What is your price on furniture, fixtures, and all outside of stock. $500. Your too high. I will through off $25. No that won’t do. Will you sell your cook stove and leave it. Yes I would. I will give you $75. for the stove and outside of that $400. Now how about the chickens. They go with the place. Good said his wife. As a rule a deposit must be made of good faith. Yes I’m willing. How much would you say? $200. will do. I got a check. This was on a Tuesday. Now we would like to check up on all outside of stock, and set a time, Thursday afternoon for the invoice. In the meantime I hired a disinterested party from a wholesale grocer, and paid him $10. Mr. Wheeler and his wife took their end. When we finished, Wheeler had $400 more than we, but we split it, and the invoice was $914. or $1314. It paid to do it right, and we settled in full. Mr. Wheeler bought over $300. worth of furniture we left in the house. So for my third time we were in the grocery business.
I will say we did not make any money in the store. It took four months to sell out. All we bought was wholesale. We paid $20. rent for store room and four living rooms but at last I did sell the store only. It had run down some. The invoice was around $1000. and I sold it to a woman and her son for $1125. Her husband worked steady. Now we had auction sale. We lost on our sale, but wanted to get east. So it was good bye to Takoma. It took money. I handed the agent over $500. when we left for Oklahoma. What we shipped--the freight was $106. We took the southern route. We stopped over at Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Oakland. Then through Fort Worth, Texas to Guymon, Oklahoma, where we stopped over for three weeks with Lillie. By mistake our car was shipped to Chicago, where we located it. From Lillie’s place we went to Topeka, Kansas, where I stayed for ten days. The family stayed for 1-1/2 months. I went to Horton, Kansas over night with Emma, lay at Chicago, then to Toledo with Ida, over night. From there to Detroit overnight with Alvin. Landed at Niagra Falls on a Sunday morning, went over to Buffalo in the evening, took a train to Holland, New York, looked at a few farms. Then back to Buffalo for two days to make up my mind what to do and decided to go to Easton.
By this time two years had passed since we left Topeka for Takoma, Washington. And I was out of $3350. I went to Stockertown to my sister. In a few days I was painting. L had my own outfit of ladders. My brother Edwin was living then in Tatamy. Then my family came after I was settled for sure. We lived in Easton for 9 years, in 10 and 11 room houses. Clara kept roomers and boarders, and I painted. Charles helped me and so did Frank and Floyd. Again we moved to Detroit, in Sept. 1926. This time only Charles, Clara and I. Work was slack. We did some painting that fall yet. Then we stored some things in Alvin’s large basement, and went to Oklahoma to spend the winter there. I did some painting there. In the spring of 1927 we came back to Detroit. I had quite alot of painting until September, when we shipped back to Easton. And both got into Laubachs store until after the holidays. From then on till 1930 we painted again. Then we bought the farm that we lost. So now we had to be contented or have to be. Now I will ring off. I could have written a great deal more as I went along, but you will get tired of reading this. I have a poor fountain pen and I’m nervous too.

(The above letter was apparently sent to Mr. Harvey Sloyer, the Family historian, It was typed, I believe by Mr. Sloyer, and is now in the possession of Stanley Sloyer, Hellertown.)

Transcribed from the obituary of Charles T. CAHILL, no date or newspaper given, found in Franklin SLOYER Family Bible, copy provided by Lynn MOBLEY

CAHILL - The many Horton friends of Charles T. CAHILL, 77, were shocked to learn of his death Sunday, May 14, at the home of his son, Ray CAHILL, in Topeka. He had only been ill a short time, and Horton folks had not considered his illness serious.
Charles Trueman CAHILL was born, March 3, 1862, in Ohio. He came to this section in 1881, before Horton was started and was a resident of the community for 47 years. He was a brother of the late Morris W. CAHILL. For many years he worked at the Rock Island shops at Horton, and for about 10 years was janitor of the First Ward school building, where he was popular among both teachers and pupils.
Mr. CAHILL married Emma Louise SLOYER on June 14, 1887. She died at Horton on April 11, 1928. The entire family was raised in Horton and all of the children attended the Horton schools. Mr. CAHILL was a fine citizen who had a world of friends here. He was best known for his unfailing good nature, and except when visiting his children made Horton his home because he enjoyed his contacts with the early citizens of this community, where the bulk of his mature life was spent. He saw Horton go through many changes, yet he was always loyal to it as his "old home town."
Mr. CAHILL is survived by five children. The three daughters are: Mrs. Frank WHELAN, Topeka; Mrs. Eulas HUCHABAY, Pratt; and Miss Marie CAHILL, Chicago. The sons are: Ray CAHILL of Topeka and Harry CAHILL of Chicago. There are also two surving brothers - Joseph CAHILL of Portland, Ore., and Robert CAHILL of Chicago. Two children are dead - Marvin and Daisy.
The body was brought from Topeka to Horton at noon today (Monday). Funeral services will be held Tuesday, May 16, at 2:30 p.m. in the Henderson-Rake mortuary. Interment will be made beside his wife in Horton Cemetery.

Transcribed from 2 articles in Franklin SLOYER Family Bible, copy provided by Lynn MOBLEY:

IN MEMORY OF DAISY CAHILL

The little white hearse out o'er the hill
Carried our darling silent and still
In a little casket snowey white
All that's left of Daisy so bright.
She left her toys like little Boy Blue
Scattered about when the day was through
Like him she woke in angelland
To join the glorious happy band.
Never again the sound will we hear
Of her baby laughter sweet and clear
Or see those eyes of tenderest blue
And little curls of golden hue.
No words come to lighten our grief today
But those Jesus Christ spoke always,
Suffer the little ones to come unto me
For of such my kingdom be.
The Autumn leaves o'er her grave will fall
The winters snow will cover them all
Daisy will know naught of life storm or cold
She's safely gathered within the fold.
And when our life on earth is done
Lifes battles fought the victory won
We will see our baby and hear her voice
T'is this that makes our hearts rejoice
Emily Hall

A distressing accident happened at the home of Mr. and Mrs. C.T. CAHILL last Saturday that resulted in the death of their 22 month old daughter, Daisy. The child was playing with a handful of corn and in throwing its head back, swallowed a gran, which lodged in the windpipe. An operation was performed for its removal, but the child died Tuesday. The funeral was heldyesterday at 2 o'clock. This is a terrible calamity to the household, to see their bright and healthy baby taken off in this manner, but there was no remedy and no power to prevent the fatal result.
