This photo, taken in July 1942, shows the first combine on the Smallsreed farm, in Braceville Township, after years of using a custom threshing machine and help from neighbors. Glenn Smallsreed is on the tractor, Glenn’s children Miriam and Arthur (on seat) are on the bagging platform.
In 1963, Glenn and Arthur incorporated the farm business as Glen-Art Farms, Inc.
