Appanoose County Trivia

Jan. 5, 1922: Jim Bradley on a visit to Russia walked a street in St. Petersburg and saw some brightly colored objects. They were the stump-pullers of the Russian Amtorg Company. Getting closer he read their inscription: “Hercules Manufacturing Co., Centerville, Iowa U.S.A.” (Centerville: A Mid-American Saga, P. 323)

Jan. 6, 1942: In response to the national emergency, people everywhere were volunteering for service. All the veterans at Appanoose County Post 527 met, committing any necessary action they could do for the “Community, State, and Nation.” Whole families were joining. More than 75 Appanoose families provided two or three sons each. The Howe family, the Phillips/McCoys, the Johnsons and the Allens all provided four. The Adams family of Exline and the Robbinses of Cincinnati each sent five sons and the King family of Udell sent all six of their sons. (Centerville: A Mid-American Saga, P. 412)
