Uncle Sammy Lounsberry
Above scene taken in 1916, shows Uncle Sammy Lounsberry,
Oakford's oldest resident weighing a load of grain on the scales of
the McFadden elevator. At this time John Armstrong was operating
the elevator, as well as selling implements and hardware. Uncle Sammy's
folks settled in the Oakford area in the early 1830s.
