A history written by his granddaughter, Jackie T. Nielson in 1997. "Tile machine. It dug the trench and laid the tile...In the spring of '20 the tile machines come in...They had to go out over the drag-lines where the tile machines was and there were grade stakes. They were a big wheel and they'd go down through the field on their own power, they had a big motor and were self-propelled;"
