Larry Lancashire, a WWII Vet/Prisoner of War, filed on 160 acres on top of Pickle Hill where he constructed a large G.I. tent on a frame. His wife Rusty and daughters Martha, Lorraine, & Abby arrived from Ohio in the summer of 1948. Larry was skilled with tools and working with Howard Lee soon had a two room cabin built. He cleared land, built a root cellar, & planted some acres of White Bliss potatoes from Archie McLane seed. He and Rusty milked cows & raised chickens.
