Note the sod roof on Jacob Cover's homestead between Mason City and
Ansley. These roofs held out most of the rain, at least during the storm.
The dripping continued sometimes two days after a good rain had stopped.
You can see a corner of the bed through the open doorway. In July
1913 the Mason City Transcript reported that Jacob, who had been a member
of Company E, Twenty-first Pennsylvania Cavalry, "heard the Rebel yell,
. . . heard President Wilson's address. . .and shook hands with him" at
the July 4th Gettysburg "big reunion of the Blue and Gray."
