Corn Shock Tier. Property of John Smith of Platte Township, Union County, Iowa.
Accession Book: Mrs. Smith was a Bliss, a daughter of one of the early pioneers and and settlers of this county. The Bliss family is mentioned in all Union County histories, This instrument is not an an original pioneer relic but, in my opion, a copy modled after early tools of this sort. For want of a genuine this serves to show what was used in pioneer times. Presented october 4, 1941
