Jacob Rhode was looked upon As one of the pioneers of the Community in which he spent his entire life. He helped transform the county from a wild and far reaching Forest to one of the most valuable districts of the state of Indiana. He enjoyed telling in his end i training Way stories of the life among the Early settlers of Warren county. He grew to manhood on the old i Homestead and later took up farming As his life work and followed it Vith greater Success than the aver Man enjoys. On january 3, 1858, he was Marri i adopted cil to Mary Jane Russell also o a Arren county. To this Union three a a a i Alldren were born who with his v. Ife survive him. The children Are mrs.

The Central elevator would be located at Fowler and the bookkeeping would be consolidated into the Fowler office which would also conduct the merchandising and employ first class salesmen who would open connections and sell the Grain into territory where it is needed rather than risk it to the Board of brokers As the Small elevators Are now compelled to do.

This was a red Field charged with a Blue saltier with a narrow Border of White on which were displayed thirteen White stars. The stars and bars were supplemented by the Camp Flag in 1863.
