Columnist Judith Sutherland continues her tale of Ashland County’s inventors, the Myers brothers. After exhibiting their pumps at the Ohio State Fair and winning the highest award there, the Myers brothers went in to full production.
Judith Sutherland, born and raised on an Ohio family dairy farm, now lives on a 70-acre farm not far from the area where her father’s family settled in the 1850s. Appreciating the tranquility of rural life, Sutherland enjoys sharing a view of her world through writing. Other interests include teaching, reading, training dogs and raising puppies. She and her husband have two children, a son and a daughter, in college.
