Object Name Invoice
Scope & Content Invoice for the Eagle Valley Feed Mill, Eagle, Colorado. E. A. (Edward) Michael opened the business in 1912. In 1917, he bought some ranch holdings for $6,500, adding to his residence, feed mill and warehouse properties in Eagle. Due to his wife's health [Edna Dewey Michael], Michael was forced to sell the ranch to Andrew Christensen for $13,000 in 1920. "The ranch consists of about 60 acres, of which between 45 and 50 acreas are irrigated land under cultivation...Michael built up the soil and drained the land and made it a valuable piece of producing farm property." --Eagle Valley Enterprise, Jan. 23, 1920 p.1
He then sold his remaining property and moved to Kansas.
The Michaels had four children: Eward D. Michael, Everett L. Michael, Glenn A. Michael, and Lee Michael.
