Early in the 1900's my grandfather, William f. McCarroll, drove this Oldsmobile from Ottumwa, Iowa to Demming, New Mexico. He was seeking a cure from TB. Along with the dog,he was accompanied by his brother,, who I believe was named Brown McCarroll. It was a long drive and I can not fathom how full of trouble it must have had. Suchcourage
