Owner: Jack Linton and Betty Linton (Thomas)

Russell and Bertha Thomas conveyed the farm to their daughter Betty and her husband Jack T Linton.  As the story goes, Grandpap Russell had reached retirement age, and no longer wished to deal with managing the farm.  Russell was working out a deal to sell the property to the current lessee for $50,000.  His son-in-law, Grandpap Jack, decided to match the offer and keep the farm in the family.
