SWARTZ CREEK — In the Oct. 7 issue, the story on the Crapo Farm Sesquicentennial Celebration had erroneous information in the cutlines.

The cutline under the photo of the grandchildren should have read “Henry Crapo’s grandchildren stand next to a wreath placed at the old silo. The wreath was placed in memory of the farm’s four owners: Henry Howland Crapo, William Wallace Crapo, Stanford T. Crapo and William (Bill) Wallace Crapo II. Also, Stan and Henry Crapo are sons of Bill Crapo; not his brothers.
