From Addison County Clay To Illinois Black Dirt
By M. Stuart Parks
   Almost every early summer Jess Oldham, like the birds, migrates to Vermont.  It’s a long trek from the southern border of Illinois to the Green Mountains but that big black Dodge diesel dually makes it every time.  Usually there’s a 22 foot box trailer behind it that holds woodworking tools of every kind and description.  Jess had two professions in his sixty-nine years; he was a farmer and a cabinet maker.  He started farming with his Dad almost as soon as he could carry a small pail and continued until he retired in 1999.  His love of woodworking began when times were tough on the farm and he had to work in one of the local furniture factories.  He worked in wood from time to time and eventually owned a custom cabinet business with a partner for several years.  Now, in Vermont, he works part of the time for Ben Lucarelli, a local cabinet maker in New Haven, plus he does small jobs on his own. But farming, as every Vermonter knows, gets in your blood.
