William J. Plank Ditch Digging Machine


plank

Harve Kauffmans mailed this old postcard to Amos Jay Miller in Topeka Indiana back on October 14, 1949. The old print features a contraption known as William J. Plank's ditch digging machine. This may have been the William Plank of Elkhart Indiana, related to the families Schrock, Zook, Mishler, Plank and Miller.

If you can help me identify Mr. Plank, or if you are a family member, please leave a comment.
