Cass County, Iowa, 1979. Copyright © State Aerial. Share

I was born on this farm as the next to youngest of 10 children. I have 6 brothers and 3 sisters. At this time I am 64 years old. My dad lived here until he passed away at nearly 86 years. My brother tore down the old house that was just behind the trailer my dad and him lived in for a number of years. He also tore down the old barn that sat just south of the little white pole building. My brother sold the acreage to another person recently. We still own the farm. This picture was taken in 1979, the year my dad passed away. I wish there was an earlier photo where all of the original buildings were still in tact.
