CRYSTAL SPRING FARM, numbers one hundred and seventeen acres, situated on the Sherwood and Aurora road within fifteen miles of Auburn. This is among the fine farms of Ledyard, devoted to the raising of grain and hay and a variety of small fruits. There are four acres of an apple orchard. This farm has a record for raising the best wheat and barley in the county. Water is supplied from never-failing springs and is sufficient for all the needs of the farm. The previous owner was Benjamin B. Battey, who sold to the present owner, William Marshall, in 1901. Mr. Marshall is a native of Scotland, and was born in 1858, emigrating to America in 1878, taking up his residence in the State of Maine, where he remained for one year. He married Miss Agnes Mitchell, also of Scotland, in 1886. Their family consists of eight children, five daughters and three sons, all living.
