Elevator operation in Davis Junction, IL

Railroad is now Illinois Railnet. Formerly CB&Q. Elevator is now Maplehurst and most of the buildings are gone.

This was Davis Junction Elevator owned by my Grandfather,Dad and Uncle. Spend many childhood days there. The owners were Glenn C Vaupel Dwayne A Vaupel and Darryl D Vaupel

They were a great family, roots go back to Ashton. Glen bought this elevator after spending many years as the unloader employe at what was the Berguson elevator for MANY years when Bergy sold elevator to M. L. Bud Ewing. I remember Glen coming back for haircuts, always enjoyed his visit with old friends.

I worked there 1958 - 1979 Deb,s Grandpa John wanted me to stop in and ask about a job, 21 years later I moved to the U P of Michigan.
