This is a true story, as far as actual dates and the verification of the incidents is concerned. The writer has filled in the conversation and the human interest bits as it seemed the people of that day might have talked or acted. Mr. Plumb is a true character, and the story of his life is given according to the facts as the writer was able to find them. That Mr. Plumb was a typical, and yet individual character, is proved by the fact that one year before his death he was chosen by t h e Red Willow County, Nebraska, Pioneer Association to drive the oxen and buckboard in the Old Settlers' parade in McCook , Nebraska.
