Conventions over. Major William McKinley nominated for president & Garret A. Hobart of N.J. for vice president on Republican ticket. Major Edward Schofield for governor. The balance of state officers renominated; finance and tariff seem to be the only issues. When our year was out for Captain Stone; we hired a farm in Ottawa; Waukesha County, from Allen Muckelston; for which we pay $160 cash rent; only 45 to 50 acres improvement. We got a poor bargain. Land sandy and gravelly. Snow on ground when he took it March 21st, 1897.

Tim Burkett,

I am trying to fax this map.It is the 1891 Pewawkee Township map.

The Mount Pleasant Farm, of John Muckleston, is on the lower left of the map, just north of Summit Road, now on the University of Wisconsin Waukesha Center.The old address was 318 Waukesha Route 1.

When we visited in 8/16/1989, the land was listed to Blanche Hushes, of 1050 University Drive, Waukesha, WI, 53188, but the property was owned by the University.

Blanche Hughes (ne Fisher) was just 88 y/o when we visited, and she told the story that the farm was sold to Michaelson, then to Frank Hall, then to William Hughes, her husband, in 1910.

Will see you soon,

Wes Ashford
