1852 August 4 Robert Ingram bought a MaComic (sic, McCormick; see note below) plow for 3 dollars 12 1/2 cents from the estate of James G. Kincaid.
Note: In 1831, McCormick invented a hillside plow and was able to secure a patent for his invention. In the 1800s, farming in the United States was largely done by hand, with animals assisting in plowing, breaking up the soil, and transporting crops. Farming was a seasonal occupation; it was also labor-intensive.

Walker, from the county of Wyoming, and James S. Cassady, from the county of Fayette, claim seats in the Convention as delegates from said counties, but no returns, complying with the Ordinance for a division of the state, have been produced before the committee, but the credentials under which they claim their seats are herewith returned for the action of the Convention in the premises." .... "Whereas no election was held in the county of Fayette on the 24th of October, 1861, as prescribed by the ordinance for the new State, nor could any such election be held on account of the rebel forces in the county; and the undersigned being citizens and voters in said county, desirous to express our voices in behalf of the new State, and to be represented in the Convention to form a constitution for said new State, do hereby appoint James S. Cassady our delegate to said Convention for the county of Fayette, and request that he may be admitted to take his seat to represent said county as if duly elected as prescribed.
"Given under our hands this 14th day of November, 1861. (Signed by) William A. Wriston, Jonathan Weaver, James D. Fellers, Joshua A. Holt, Pattison Wriston, Noah Scarbrough, James Wriston, William L.

MR. WILLEY. These are revolutionary times. The house is on fire and we cannot exactly be very technical. I think these counties have done about the best they could. The delegate is endorsed as a responsible gentleman; the signers are endorsed as respectable; and above all these considerations it occurs to me that whatever our labors are here they have to be consummated by taking the sense of Fayette county. We cannot do them any injury. I would like them to be fully represented. All we can do will be to present to them a constitution for their adoption or rejection; and under all the circumstances, I feel very much inclined to vote for their admission. I think I shall, sir, at a venture. The motion to admit Mr. Cassady was agreed to.
