Dear Posters,Back when my Dad was a lad in Van Buren Co. cattle ranged free. People fenced in their crops, gardens. Everyone who had cattle, everyone had a milkcow, had to register their stock. No branding, ear marks were used. Memory serves poorly but I believe that our marks were a crop, split and a split and a half crop. Have any of you seen the cattle marks registry in VBC ?....RSVP...Luceo Non Uro...Aubrey...ps, does anybody know of Thomas Cook m Haley Ann Bradford. Haley Ann later married Thomas Swafford.
