Grain Elevators

Logansport Pharos-Tribune, 5 Dec 1930.

In the article above, James D. Havens, county trustee, was appointed receiver for two grain elevators in Miami County, Indiana. These were operated by the Farmers Cooperative Elevator Company.

As noted in the obituaries of James and Lucinda Helen Wright Havens, they lived in Bennetts Switch, Miami County for many years. In the 1900 US Census, they were living in the household of James's parents, James and Ellenora Rork Havens in Deer Creek Township.
