In 1931 an ancient and extremely large elm tree succumbed to a storm.  Louise Bull Billings (1871 - 1940), wife of Jesse Dyer Billings (1861 - 1934) wrote the story of the tree and the Creek Road farm on which it had spent several centuries.  This farm is on the Rutland Town side of the Clarendon-Rutland Town line. 

We do not have a photo of the actual tree.  The cover is just a stock photo of an ancient elm.
