I have heard another story about these man and woman trying to give children medicine in a different farm location in Odell. They also heard an old time jalopy car pull up that night. Maybe there was a traveling Dr. Team around the 20s and 30s.|

My family has lived in Livingston county for generations. My great grand daddy moved to Odell in 1889 when he was just a boy. He got himself a little farm just to the east of town and he worked damn hard to keep the farm going.
I was born in 1949 and only a few months later my great grand daddy passed on. My grandpa took over the farm for a few years but he died of a stroke in 53. So my dad and my three brothers were left to work the farm.|
I started helping when I was 9 I'd plow the fields with that old farmall 300 and I just loved it. I always knew that I would stay there and run that farm for the rest of my life. Summer nights were grand on that old farm my whole family would sit on our front porch and listen to the radio.|
There was an old freight train that used to go through town every night and when it's whistle would blow at 9:00 pm. Every single night. When that whistle would blow it meant that it was bed time for all of us kids.
However there was one July night back in 1964 when that old whistle didn't blow. My two older brothers had already left the farm by now the only ones left on the farm were me my two sisters and Ma and dad.
