Missouri: Howell County, 1919 – (James) William ‘Bill’ McAninch


A Howell County Man Beat ’Em. / When Wm McAninch, a Howell County farmer and stockman

whose home is near Bakersfield, bought a fine Stallion recently at Horton, Kansas, the Railroad

company wanted about a $100 to transport the animal to West Plains. Mr. McAninch wouldn't

pay it. Although 65 yrs old but as tough as a pine knot as far as physical ability is concerned,

Mr. McAninch rode the horse from Horton, Kansas, to Bakersfield, a distance of 300 miles in less

than a week. The weather was quite pleasant and when Mr. McAninch arrived home both horse and

rider were none the worse for their trip.
