He sold his possessions at this point, and purchased his present location, during the winter of 1877, near Hepburn, on the Nodaway river, where he has erected a fine flouring mill; supplied with a never-failing water power, and is doing a flourishing business. His enterprise is highly appreciated by the surrounding community.
