Aerial farm photo draws interest of many readers


To the Editor:

I believe the 'mystery farm' pictured on the front page of the 8/26/09 edition of the Tri-City Times belonged to Walter Payton. It was located on Kidder Road in Almont, just north of Ferguson Cemetery. My wife Ellen (Peters') family farmed there for several years in the late 60s. I grew up on the neighboring Eschenburg Farm.

I enjoy keeping up with the local news via the internet edition here in California.

Editor's note: Jim, thank you for keeping in touch with your hometown newspaper. The aerial photo of the Payton farm drew quite a response, yours among them. You are correct in your recollections, too. Today the farm is owned by the Schocke family. Best wishes to you and Ellen in California.
