  • Here is a photograph, of a picture from times long ago. That is my late father-in-law, Boge Bartley, proudly standing in front of the Bartley family delivery truck.

    Boge (his proper name was John Fitzhugh) started the dairy in the 1940s. He and his wife, Anna Bell Bartley bought a pasture on the main road leading to Montezuma.

    There were no buildings or improvements there, but electricity and city water were available right next to the road.
