Ed Glover first bought 80 acres, then ran his holdings up to 190 during later years, purchasing small strips of land now and then from Indians who had drawn bead-right allotments.

He entered the Army in 1955. and during two years of service his wife and dad and the rest of the family took care of the dairy herd, working hard to build it up. While in the Army, Garvin was stationed at Fort Knox, Ky.. and at Frankfurt, Germany. and his have two children. (Continued on page two) I tank.
