The fat of the land : the story of an American farm (1905), by John Williams Streeter:
A doctor and his wife, Polly, bought a farm called Four Oaks. He mapped out his property.
A farmer, William Thompson, age 46, who lost his farm to an imperfect title was hired to help. William Johnson, a 26 year old Swede, and a fellow named Sam Jones were also hired by the doctor/farmer.
Dr. John Williams Streeter, a University of Michigan graduate, died June 4, 1905, according to the University's necrology file.
