Greatgreat grandfather DeKay(step grandfather) came from Minnesota in a conestoga wagon bought the small house and barn then added on.  The
original was from the 1700's there is a small graveyard you have listed in Catlin on your site from that family. Minnie Norman and Simeon Saunders married and took the farm over(my great grandparents) then Earl Saunders and Cecil Saunders inherited it.  The land was half in Catlin and half in Big Flats......, Frances Adams

Dusty writes, "In my whole life, the best times and best people came from this old farm."
