Nodaway County Colony in the Lone Star State

From the January 16, 1913 Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri):

Was in Texas a Few Days Ago

T. L. Howden, who returned from Texas last week says that the Nodaway County Colony, who went to the Lone Star State are doing nicely.  He saw while there Frank Brown, Bert Bender, Walter Scott, Erwin Gill, Mrs. Paton and others from Skidmore.  All were in good health and getting along fine.
