50 YEARS AGO
April 17, 1963
It was thought that the last team of oxen used in Anderson County was owned by Jim A. Leathers. Many of our older citizens remembered the sturdy ox as he pulled the plow or dragged the heavy saw logs to the mill.
In remote section of the Eastern Kentucky mountains the ox was still be used. A pair of ox shoes that were being displayed in the Anderson News window were secured by Wyatt Shely from a friend in Johnson County, where the ox is still in common use.
