      The Sawyer Family Home, a large mansion type was
      built in 1874 by an Englishman, William Beckley. 

      The home was occupied by three generations
      of Sawyer families for over 75 years. 

      In 1917 James and Armintha purchased the
      home when they moved from Van Buren County. 

      In 1936, Stanley and Wealthy moved into the home
      where they reared their family of seven children: 
      Lyle, Worthy, Donna, Ione, Max, Peggy and Robert. 

      The children attended nearby Oberlin
      Grade School and Blanchard High School.
