In 1877 he invented a steam locomotive that revolutionized the logging industry. The "Shay Locomotive" featured flexible railway trucks and horizontal cylinders, which made it easier for trains to haul large amounts of logs from the woods to the mill. His invention revolutionized the logging industry making lumber cheaper to make. His powerful engines were also used in mining enterprises and sugar plantations worldwide. (bio by: Bigwoo) Family links: Parents: Phoeba Probasco Shay (1818 - 1873) Sibling: Ephraim Shay (1839 - 1916) Theodore Shay (1845 - 1883) [Find A Grave](http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=14772031) [Cadallac Evening New](http://www.cadillacnews.com/news_story/?story_id=1809850&year=2013&issue=20130617) [Ephriam Shay](http://www.shaylocomotives.com/shaypages/EphraimShay.htm) EHRAIM SHAY, a well-known and prominent citizen of Harbor Springs, is proprietor of the City Water Works, and is also interested extensively in the Lima Locomotive and Machine Company, with which latter concern he has been connected for the past twelve years. For eleven years prior to that time he was interested in the manufacture of pine lumber, and was the owner of a lumber-mill. He is perhaps best known as the inventor of the Shay Locomotive, for which he has received three gold medals. One of these, known as "The John Scott Legacy Premium and Medal," was awarded him by a committee of the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia, a body of perhaps the most renowned scientific men of this country. In the year 1885 Mr. Shay was awarded a gold medal at the Cotton Centennial held at New Orleans, and the third prize was given him at the World's Fair of 1893 in Chicago. In tracing the ancestry of our subject, we find that on the paternal side he is of Irish-English descent, while on his mother's side he is of Irish origin. His paternal grandfather, Ephraim Shay, was a native of New Jersey, and operated a farm and dairy in Sussex County. In his early years he had but few educational privileges and acquired his knowledge of books mainly after his marriage. Though often urged to do so, he would never accept office. He was a member of the Methodist Church, and remained steadfast to his faith up to the time of his demise, which occurred when he was in his sixty-fifth year. Financially prospered, he became quite wealthy. The maternal grandfather, Jacob Probasco, was born in New Jersey, and was a pioneer settler in Ohio, where he died at the age of forty-five years. His life work was that of farming and blacksmithing. He reared a family numbering four sons and four daughters. James, father of Ephraim Shay, was born in New Jersey, and in boyhood drove across the country to Ohio. From that time until his death, which occurred in 1861, he engaged in farming and lumbering in Huron County. He was at one time Postmaster of Sherman, served as Justice of the Peace for many years, and was a Lieutenant in the state militia. His wife survived him about ten years. They were members of the Methodist Church, and were beloved by all who knew them. His wife, Phoebe, nee Probasco, was born in New Jersey, and by her marriage became the mother of four sons and four daughters. Only two are now living, Ephraim and Arthur, the latter of whom resides in Alabama. Born in Sherman Township, Huron County, Ohio, July 17,1839, our subject passed a few years in his native state, but was mainly reared by his paternal grandfather on his dairy farm in Sussex County, N. J. When only sixteen years of age the youth started out to make his own way in the world, and first worked as a brick-maker, subsequently becoming a cooper. From that time until the breaking out of the war he was employed in teaching. May 10, 1861, he enlisted in the Third Michigan Regiment, on the three-months call, but before his company was ordered to the front a reversal of plans was made and the regiment was mustered in for three years. He went to Missouri and joined the Eighth Regiment of that state, in which he remained for three years. Among the battles in which he participated were those of Pittsburg Landing (Shiloh), Corinth, the first attack on Vicksburg, Jackson, and the subsequent siege of Vicksburg. He was then taken sick and was sent to the hospital. For the succeeding year he was Steward in the institution. Previous to this time he was clerk at Sherman's headquarters for about a year. He rose to the rank of Second Sergeant,and took part in thirty-seven battles and many skirmishes of minor importance. In 1864 Ephraim Shay purchased a farm in Ionia County, Mich., and cultivated the place for the next four years. He then bought a portable lumber-mill, and in 1871 went to Cadillac, where he engaged in the manufacture of lumber for eleven years. Having invented a locomotive, he became a part-owner of the Lima Locomotive and Machine Works in 1883. His residence in Harbor Springs is built of steel, after his own design. Each plate is finely finished pressed steel, and every room on the main floor is of the same size and shape. It is a neat, novel and attractive home, having many obvious advantages over ordinary buildings. July 27, 1864, Mr. Shay married Miss Jane Henderson, by whom he has one son, Lette, who is Superintendent of the City Water Works and also runs a machine-shop. The son married Miss Dollie Roe, and has two children, Abbie and Catherine. Mrs. Shay is a daughter of James and Sarah Jane (Wilbur) Henderson. While a resident of Wexford County, Mich., Mr. Shay was honored with the position of County Treasurer, being the first man ever elected on the Democratic ticket to a county office there. He is a member of the Masonic and Odd Fellows' fraternities, and is also a Knight of Pythias. …

Lester A. Miller, Forest Hill Cemetery, Stanton, Michigan GPS (N43°17.445, W085°05.367) Lester Miller survived a horrific explosion of his plane while on a mission on 9/29/1943 over Italy. At 13:23 hours (1:23pm) on a mission to bomb the Bonevento road bridge near Remorci, Italy the plane he was in (listed as a B25C) was hit by ground fire. You and I never knew this man but he was a hero. A hero who like a lot of other Veterans talked little of their experiences and we never had the chance to understand the pain, the nightmares or how he coped with life after war. All we can say is a prayer of thanks for his willingness to serve, his sacrifice and bravery. The pilot was Clifton W. Strunk, Co-Pilot was Arthur G. Liggett Jr., Radio Operator was Richard J. Welsh, Gunner was Burke W. Himes, Tail Gunner was John H. Revis and Lester A. Miller was the Bombardier. Only Welsh and Miller were able to bail out and survive.
