History of the Family Farm:

In the 1840’s two young men, Richard and John Haughton (Horton), sailed from Ireland to build a new life for themselves in America. Richard eventually settled in Garrett, IL. He and his descendants operated grain elevators at Ficklin, Garrett,Pierson Station. When the Atwood Bank was in trouble, they moved their Garrett Bank to Atwood to help save it. Richard’s son John bought land for each of his children, and they continued to farm their land and prosper for over one hundred and eighty years.

Richard’s great, great grandchildren, twins, Robert and Ross Reeder farmed their family’s land together for more than 60 years. They respected the land, supported each other, and never farmed on Sunday. This auction represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of the Reeder Horton family legacy in Illinois.
