Money nMBdad a not plemnd ta cTtry. w»/ By ROBERT D. NOBLE Globe-Gazette State Editor ROCKFORD -- A heavy stone rolled to the .ground. A workman moved his wrist, tightened liis grip on his crow bar, and sent another in its wake. The job was done quickly, ejrorllcssly. Where once had stood a massive structure, only a shallow pit, some dried up ground, remained. A woman, greyed, slightly stooped, stood in the center of all this. She was not a Lyon-or a Patton, or a lane, but for her (he walls still seemed to stand. She heard the laughter rlntr through Us giant halls; she felt ihe t e a r s * and knew the happiness tfcat had been a part of life in Rockford; in this huge: home. She knew its history, its parties, its ·weddings, its births, its deaths. Fbr her the home would never really be gone. Vaguely, perhaps, but completely, she remembered the beginning, as i£ she'd seen it. It was 1857 when Orlo Lyon had come. Rockford was not a town, not .in the sense that a- town is spoken of today. It was very young, just a struggling frontier community. Few men such as Orlo Lyon had come, though many were to follow. This house had stood here then, had watched him come. * * * Orlo had entered the mercantile busiuess with his brother-in-law, J. s. Childs. They'd been located on main street-but then, Rockford was mostly main street in 1857. lie had stayed in the mercantile business until the dark days of the 60's arrived; the days when the north and the south were at war. Capt. Orlo Lyon o£ the Iowa ·uard entered the battle for a Jnitcd Slates. The house watched him go. It ;tood there, beautiful and silent during those days. The grey- laired lady could picture ils itatue-like frame. The men of Rockford had gone to \yar. The women of Rockford were quiet. They prayed for their loved ones, is we pray for ours today. And hey worked harder to make the lours pass more quickly. When the war was over Captain -yon, as a distinguished soldier of :he Union, had returned to Rock- lord. He had courted and won Belle Bradford and in 1807 had carried his young bride across the threshold of this great house. * * * Children were born here. Anna had been the first child. She was born about 1868. .And then there had been Jessie, Clara, Edna, Sue, George and Alhur--that was right, seven children and all born iu this house. As Rockfora grew, so grew' the importance of the house. (It was a home, now, for as Edgar Guest put it, "It takes a heap oE livin' in a house to call it homo," anc the Lyons, with their family, hac made this bulk of wood and stone from a house into a home.) Its master became the fifth postmaster, that was in 1871, if her memory didn't fail her. Later he'd entered the banking business with a man named Mathew. In 1878 the shining while pain on this impressive looking homi had taken on a new importance for the people of the community or ils master was a member of lie state legislature. He had .ervcd two terms by 1882. There had been large weddings here, with great crowds of liand- omely dressed people filling the louse and spilling out across the 'awns.. Anna married Will I'altou, and they' had three sons, Bradford, named for his grandmother, Mrs. Lyon, was in Chicago, and Roger and Willis were in Mason City; Sue had become the bride of Dr. W. E. Long. She was living in Mason City now too, and she also had a son, Draper, who like his father. was a doctor. The house had seemed proud over these weddings, and over the grandchildren. "Yes," thought the lady, "this had been a wonderful home, landmark of the community, it had been a connection between the old and the new.'' Darkness had come slowly to these walls. The children raovec away but the old folks staved on and kept the fires burning'. Thej had stayed here to the very last they had died here--that" was nearly 40 years ago, but it hadn't seemed so long. The greyed lady moved slightly. The great walls seemed to collapse around her as she came back to reality. There was nothing left but a shallow pit and some dried up ground,' but hen had stood a pioneer's home, an gone though it was from the av erage eye, it had stood for nearlj a hundred years, and in the mind of some it would stand for near ly a century more; Call it castles in the air, but i was. real.
