"Michigan Colony" by L. W. Hubbell, pub. in The Jetmore Republican, Jetmore, Hodgeman, Kansas, May 16, 1957.

"In 1885 George L. Warner went to Valley Twp. Hodgeman Co., KS, in a group move of Litchfield, MI folks called the "Michigan Colony". George had a sod house built before the family of the first 7 children and his wife moved there in the fall of 1886. A stone school house was built on George's land after the Colony arrived.

"At the time the colony came West, the tide of immigration was coming in and covered wagons could be seen creeping along the cross-country roads daily.

"In 1900 the family moved back to MI for about 7 years, then returned to Kansas and located on the George Curtis farm near Bellefort, in Ford Co., six miles east of Spearville, KS.

"The family then moved to Stanton Co., Kansas, and farmed their own half section. When George's wife passed away in 1926, he went to live with his children, and lastly with his daughter, Mrs. Blanche Roberts and family."
