The Atkinson Farm

— A Series of Four Stones —

The Atkinson Farm was located at this location since the McClure Road
ran by this site approximately 500 feet north of here. The holding had
ready access to a main road and was not hampered by being isolated deep
in the fields as it is today. The Atkinson family consisted of four people,
the Father, Wirtz, his wife, and two boys, David and James. David was killed
at Shiloh and James was not a capable or responsible person. He
once burned one of the barns to get rid of a rooster who awakened him
in the morning by his crowing. The rooster fled the burning barn to crow
another day. The neighbors assisted in a community effort in building a
new barn.
These fine neighbors and friends retired and the McClure Brothers,
James and John bought the farm in 1873. The buildings were torn down
as they had become dangerous in about 1916 by Mr. Henry Strauzer at the
request of John McClure.
