That sounds like the old Rock Island Plow Co.plant in Rock Island Ill., Allen. Frank Hodina would
probably know for sure. My Grandfather worked there before coming back east. It was sold to John
Deere in the late 1890's I believe. I have had family in the area since my g-g-grandfather moved the
family to Rock Island Co, in 1835 when it was said there were less than 100 white people in the area.
Cordially, Don Valentine
