The cover photo from 1936 appeared in the Rutland Herald.  It shows Elijah Moses Eddy (1866 - 1942) using oxen for working his fields on Creek Road.  Elijah was married to Ruth Seamans (1878 - 1954) and was the son of Winslow Salisbury Eddy (1828 - 1908) and Susan P. Ricker (1842 - 1920).  The photo with its caption is repeated below.  Below that is an article and photo from 1940 of his brother James Warren Eddy  (1875 - 1954), again using an ox.  Elijah is buried in the Chippenhook Cemetery and James in the East Clarendon Cemetery. Both articles are courtesy of the Rutland Historical Society.
