I had the opportunity to see the champion tree and meet some mighty fine people at the Davis Farm and Chicken Crispin.

Curiosity plus conversation on another thread made me look at the deed today where my Great-Grandfather bought this particular 168.67 acre parcel of land in 1904.  Including 10% interest and 10% attorney fee, he paid $363.00 financed for three years.  There were three payments of $121.00 each due on the 13th of December, 1905, 1906, and 1907.

I am sure that the due date was by design because by then all of the crops would be in.  I inherited a portion and bought the remainder of the property in 2004, exactly 100 years later.  The original deed, which I have, is hand drawn on linen cloth.

Its amazing how things use to be bought and sold. know in days ever T has to be crossed and I has to be dotted. I'm glad to see land retained for that many years within the family. Money gets spent, and replaced, they don't make land anymore. I have bought several hundred acres in last couple years. I clear cut a creek, all soft wood overmature (cottonwood, sycamore). Grossed 24k in a 7ac plot on both sides of a creek. To bad the rest of the 160ac wasn't timber like that just tillable. Linen cloth :D :D
