    • "The Leon Free Methodist Church was organized in the fall of 1874 by the Rev. J. W. Alpine with the following members: Joseph Sherman and wife, Lyman Franklin and Edwin Kellogg. Meetings were held in the Wells Hill schoolhouse until the fall of 1876, when the old school building of Leon Center was purchased . . . . In March, 1878, a board of trustees composed of Edwin Kellogg . . . was chosen . . . . In 1876, the Rev John Taylor was sent to the Leon Circuit. He remained a year and was succeeded by . . . . The church enjoyed considerable prosperity with 40 members. The following were the board of stewards: . . . Lyman Franklin . . . Albert Kellogg . . . ." [5]

    • "Leon, no doubt, was one of the first towns in the county to make any progress in the dairy industry. At first, butter and cheese were made on the farm by the family. One family, the Kelloggs, who operated a large farm on Kellogg Hill in Lot 29, made history. Producing cheese of good quality, they sold from the farm to customers or to stores in nearby towns, and continued until about 1915.

      "Also, they were pioneers in raising black-and-white Holtsein cattle. At first, this breed was thought to produce milk of low butterfat content, but about 1890 Prof. S. M. Babcock invented a milk test known as the Babcock test which is still in use with very little change. Soon the cheese factories adopted this test . . . . Milk-condensing plants paid only by test, but farmers were slow to change from the native cattle to better-bred stock. Now, almost all farmers in town have black-and-white herds." [7]
