    3. David J. Allen, 1916-1999. "In 1936, when he was 19, he enlisted in the Army, where he served in the 10th Cavalry -- a regiment of African-American soldiers who, along with the 9th Cavalry, formed the Buffalo Soldiers. The term dates back to when the regiments were formed in 1866 to help patrol the Western frontier and fight in the nation's wars..." (Wichita Eagle)

    My home is the old station masters house of a small line called a milk run line of a milk run of a rail road that ran through McLouth to Bashor. The stop here where I live was called Ackerland and there was a weight scale and general store located in my back yard. My house is about 110 yrs old and you can still see the outline of the original house and it's ad ons including the station master's office which is now my bathroom. I was told by a older man that there was a filling station later placed somewhere here. My mother-in-laws house was a hotel and many years ago a woman in her eighties visited them and said she was born in their down stairs room off from the living room. The daughter of Tom Bell who lived to be 100 yrs old said she could remember going to the general store in 1947.
    Our two homes are all that is left of Ackerland.I am looking for any history of the town and photographs if there are any. So far I have not had any luck. Would it be possible for you to help me or point me in the right direction. Thank you. Roger Harsh, 1/9/1999
