Winfield Courier, January 31, 1878.
We recently had the pleasure of a call from Mr. G. D. Harvey and Mr. _____ Vaughn, who have recently come here from Washington County, New York. They are temporarily located in this city and will purchase farms as soon as they can determine which of the many favorable chances to take. They will be valuable accessions to our county.
