We hired their [sic] for 1 1/2 y ears. Then we moced to Johnnie Badour's house, which is now called the Ea gle Place, where Pat lived for a while. Dad bought the farm and built a l og house on it in 1886. John was born in February of 1887. At that ti me there was only 3 teams of horses between AuGres and Delano settlemen t. They were owned by Ed Johnson, Paul Badour and Bill Campbell. Dad wor ked in summertime on Boone Farm and in winter in the woods and in the spri ngtim, drive the [Rifle] river. In 1900 Dad built camp and lumbered two w inters near the county line between Iosco County and Sims County (Township ?).
      He banked his logs at Herman City near Singing Bridge.

      Mr. and Mrs. McLean grew up in Canada, but their folks came from Tyrone, I reland and lived in Canada the rest of their lives. After moving on the f arm dad raised a team of oxen and we done our farming for about 10 years b efore he got a team of horses, and he never owned a tractor.
