With thousands o readers, there has to be at least two people whoare interested in tractor articles. So I need just one person besidesmysel and we are good to go!!Te workhorse o my small tractor eet, is my second oldest, butat 32 years old, it is still going strong and is my go-to tractor orthe heavy work. It’s the one that ventures o o the woods road toblaze new trails and to haul out wood. It is also the only tractorthat has the space to carry the many items needed or the hard jobs.My chainsaw sits in a case out on one rear ender, while an axesits inside the cabin beside my seat. Outside on the loader, I havea bracket to hold my peavey or moving logs or trees around i needed. Until I nd a logging winch or wench, I have a 20 plusoot hunk o chain hanging o brackets on the other side o theloader. Also hanging o the loader are lopping shears or trimmingbranches (instead o using chainsaw), a two-ton manual winch orhauling me (hopeully) out o places I shouldn’t have been, and ashovel (or sel burial i nothing else works)!!Inside the cab, I have a hard hat with ace shield, that I shoulduse but never do, two or three pairs o gloves, a small maul-likehammer (protection rom coyotes and angry wie), numerousbolts and pins, tools and a airly short eight oot chain, along withgas and chain oil or my chainsaw.Te tractor started out lie weighing a little over 4,000 lbs butnow weighs somewhere in the vicinity o 120,000 lbs and canbarely move (just kidding)!!It is amazing, when I think about it. With all o the problems in theworld both near and ar, why would I write about a tractor?? Wellor one thing, tractors aren’t depressing!! One o the great thingsabout our publications is that with possibly a rare exception, allo the news is positive. And believe me, that can be very hard tond today. While there is nothing wrong with getting the “real”news on lie, a continuous barrage o bad news is depressing andso people begin to eel hopeless about the uture and that there isnothing that can be done.Fortunately, our publications are just loaded with people andorganizations being very busy trying to solve at least some o theworld’s problems and believe me, that is a good thing. Changealmost never occurs out o depression, but rather hope andinspiration.

(8) Bob Nolan had one child – Roberta Irene (Bobbie”) Nolan.She was an issue rom his rst marriage. She married KenCoburn. [Earl Nolan, brother o Bob Nolan, “had one daughterand so the line o the ‘Nolan’ name, borrowed by Harry B. Noblesin 1917, has become extinct.”](9) Roberta Irene (“Bobbie”) Nolan had one son; his name isCalin Ray Coburn. He is Bob Nolan’s only grandson. Calin wasborn in 1953. On the computer site Calin has established onereads: “Bobbie had planned to name her son Colin Coburn.Just as he wanted his music to be dierent rom everyone else’s,Bob wanted his grandson to be dierent, too, and he suggestedshe change the spelling but not the pronunciation o the name.‘Just to be dierent,’ he told her. Bobbie spelled the name o herson C-a-l-i-n. His ather, Ken, was a handsome and personableyoung man rom a large amily in Arkansas.”(10) Calin Ray Coburn has three children: Cayleen Coburn,Miles Ray Coburn, Connor Nolan Coburn.Our series, “Hempstead, Hateld Point, HollywoodConnections”, has centered on Bob Nolan (born ClarenceRobert Nobles). He spent three years o his early lie at HateldPoint with his paternal grandparents. It was his music in lateryears or which he will be remembered.Research reveals the ollowing – Bob Nolan “wrote songs thatwere entirely original – oen pure poetry set to unusual anddicult melodies. An admirer once told Bob that he painted theWest – and his brush was music.”Bob’s only grandson, Calin Coburn, once wrote: “Bob was notas complicated a man as you might think. His lie was devotedto one person – himsel. Bob was Bob. An island unto himsel.Bob was internal. Bob was just writing music, enjoying his lie,making songs, making words. And the way they go together isthe gi o Bob to us.”Why not dig out your old records, cassettes and discs andenjoy a ew songs o Bob Nolan and the “Sons o the Pioneers”?Remember he had a Kings County connection.Sources: or “Hempstead Hateld Point – HollywoodConnections”: Canada Census – 1901 Census o SpringeldParish, Kings Co.,NB; Canada Census– 1911 Census o Winnipeg Manitoba;www.bobnolan-sop.net; Spragg Genealogy (see Internet – “Sprague Database – Te Sprague Project”);Wright, Esther Clark.
