June 22, 1882 - June 22, 2013 The quarter section of land you purchased in 1882, Kingman county, Kansas, is still in the family! It is now owned by your great granddaughter, Martha [Rayl] [Pfalser] Stuart, 4th generation owner.
During that time it has been producing a good wheat crop for the past 131 years. The wheat was just cut on June 22, 2013, the anniversary of the purchase! It produced one of the best crops ever, 54 bushels to the acre.
Well done, Charles, you had a good eye for land and your efforts have produced a caring and strong family line. The quarter section has been recognized by the State of Kansas as a Century Farm, being in the same family all 131 years.
