    Great article and well done. I love reading about Studebaker history, and there's no better source than yourself.
    Nice job.

      In various articles, Quinn described the Studebakers' journey in two wagons. The family trekked nearly 400 miles over mountains and through rivers. The Studebakers' destination was a 160-acre farm John had bought the year before.

      "The seeds of misfortune, however, had been sown before leaving Pennsylvania," Quinn wrote.

      John Studebaker had co-signed a loan taken by a friend. When his friend defaulted, the creditor made Studebaker pay. The family was forced to sell its new home and move to a 13-acre plot.

      Hmmm....being a business-oriented article and recording their journey through both rivers and financial hard times, why not enhance the article with a line drawing of the wagon bouncing along with a wooden bucket swinging to and know, for the bailout?
