Great Grandpa was a farmer and raised wheat during WW1.
My Dad loved riding the buckboard into town each week, 13 miles one way. From the farm near Willard to Springfield, which passed by the little area of Glidewell.
Dad said one evening Grandpa Ben was walking up along the road. No one knew why he was walking where he was, then he was hit and killed by a car.
