Had a phone call from a Mr . Harold Sullivan a few days ago .He said his barn fell in on this old steam engine and decided to sell it and a friend of his looked me up on smokstak and he called me .we worked it all out and a great guy . It ran a sawmill just about 20 miles from the old southern engine and boiler works factory in Jackson Tenn ,The writing on the side is a lot more fancier than my other steam engine so think it is built in the 1880s and my other steam engine is around 1905 ? Thanks to his friend and this site it got me this great piece of history for the Jackson tenn museum .
