Vintage Cars Tractors and Collectables
By Mike Cameron
    Larry and Louise Johnson of Charlotte have enjoyed collecting ever since they can remember.
    In some small barns on their property we recently looked over some of the most well preserved and maintained John Deer tractors that can be found anywhere in the area.  Five of these beauties are for sale, more about that later.  Larry Johnson explained each machine, started some and parked them outside.  Even a non-mechanic can appreciate the purr of a smooth running, well cared for machine.  The tractors were spotless and a timeless tribute to their manufacturer and the operators who used them and cared for them over the years.

The origin of the name is not certain.  Some of the grantees lived in Litchfield County Connecticut where there is a Cornwall and there is a Cornwall in England.  Also, King George the Third's father had been the Duke of Cornwall.  At some point in its early history the town had been called Stockwell Corners.  Joshua Stockwell was one of the first store-keepers in town.
