      I'm not sure when grandpa was born, 1861 I think, but maybe earlier. He worked on the first railroad track to go through North Dakota. He said most of the crew of 50 were du king the law for some reason. Like butcher knife Charley who killed three people in Missouri. The foreman had a rifle and grandpa had a pistol. That was the only two guns in the camp. I was only one year old when he died so I only know what dad passed on to me.

      I'm not sure of grandpa age because based on what we thought was his age when he died in 1949 he would have been born in 1861. However I think dad said he was 19 when he went to work for the railroad. The pistol he bought before he headed to North Dakota just came out, and it was the Colt is that Peacemaker (1873) making 1854 his year of birth. There was no town when he settled in North Dakota where Sheyenne is now.

      Pretty neat rig there Davey.
      I remember talking with 2 of the folks friends who were well into their 90's at the time. That was back when people stopped over to visit and weren't watching TV so much IF they even had a TV.

      They aren't worth much but I wanted it for use around the farm during the summer. When the grandkids get to be our age they will still remember bouncing around the farm in it. Unreal how far along suspension systems have come since those days , The seat is like a spring board so it's no wonder they had a tall roof .
