HENRY A. SIMPSON
Was one of the early settlers in the west part of the county, homesteading in 1878 and moving to his claim the next year. This moving business in those times was not a very extensive affair for a single man; a sheet iron stove, coffee pot, a few plates, usually tin, and a few blankets on a bunk in the corner of the dug-out was all a man needed; and they had good times, you bet; entertained company in lavish style and looked forward to the time when they could support wives and live at home. All these things have come to Simpson and he now lives on one of the best farms in a fine farm residence and is one of the prosperous men of the county. He took the HERALD from the first and to its excellent advice no doubt he owes much of his success.
