Rural Harvey County Wheat Harvest Scene – 1902 photo. Will Umholtz’s threshing machine and crew show how farming had started moving in the direction of mechanization but was still quite labor-intensive. Among the crew were John Deschner (2nd from right at the head end of the separator), Will Umholtz (standing by the steam engine wheel) and Jacob White (standing in front of the wagon with hands on hips). Both John Deschner and Jacob White had farms in the vicinity of Trousdale (later called Zimmerdale). Photo source: HCHM Collection
