"Henry Massey, a Revolutionary War veteran, acquired 40 acres in the Bellwood Community in 1835.... His son, Henry Yancy Massey and his first wife Nancy Gillespie, had 9 children. After her death he married Eliza Shipp who had five children.... The large family raised corn, hay, horses and cattle on 224 acres. J.T. Massey, the founder's grandson, and wife Ruth Haley were successful farmers and built a new house on the property in 1884. During the ownership of their son, Joseph Walter Massey, the farm was the site of maneuvers during World War II."
