We visited Uncle Jack and his family at the farm in about 1998. Uncle Jack took all four of us on a grand tour of the farm and and Kossuth in his pickup. He regaled is with local history and details about the farm. Although we don’t remember much else about our trip back to Ohio and Indiana we all remember the good time we had with Uncle Jack. If you’d say “Hey Cow! To any of us we’d remember Jack yelling that to call in his cows. His absence will be felt next time I’m home to Ohio.
