    • OCCUPATION: After his marriage (and maybe even before it), Roy was a troubleshooter for Samson Tractor Co. He would show farmers how to use the Samson Tractor and fix things that went wrong with them. Samson tractors were sold from Des Moines, Iowa. That could be why Judy Mary was born in Iowa and the other children in Wisconsin. [Source: Alice Wenham Outhouse Blue, daughter-in-law]

  • Notes 
    • Some places, even family sources, say his first name was LeRoy. Published genealogy states his birthdate was 1894. That is incorrect.

      In 1937, it appears that Roy is associated with Allis Chalmers. (WSJ, 27 Oct 1937)

      Mr. and Mrs. Roy J. Outhouse have moved from Milton to their new ome on Creek Road which is the remodeled Lawson school.
      Before this, Roy and Clara swapped homes with LeRoy and Alice so that Roy and Clara lived on Milton-Shopiere Rd, Milton and LeRoy and Alice lived on the farm at Avalon. I think this was because Roy retired fron farming and expected that his son would take it over. I don't remember when the house swap took place however [LB]
