Alexander Lyons threshing crew 

He owned and operated one of the first threshing outfits in Jo Daviess county.  The other men in the photo are unknown. Alex lived in the Pleasant Valley area, so most of these men are probably from the area.  Can you help identify these men?  Click here for a larger image.
