  1. Thanks for this. Finally made the time to listen. Jeanette Horton was a great help to my father and mother as they aged. I believe they bought their dairy farm from Milton (Mit) Howes, my mother’s first cousin. For several years, back in the late 40s and early 50s,my father, Francis Wells, and Mit worked together and shared some items of farm equipment. Looking forward to the next episode.
