Robert Main - 1000 Years of Memories by I. David Cohen

Robert Main

Bob grew up on a farm in Delaware, Ohio. Every day before going to school Bob had farm chores to complete. Life on the farm, when he was young, was without mechanical equipment, especially a tractor. All land was tillable by hand – pure drudgery. In 1927, when Bob was 10 years old his father was able to buy a Ford tractor, a lifesaver from backbreaking labor.
