Amish Country Arson
Fall was normally a routine season in Amish Country with harvest taking up much of the Plain farmers time. They put in long hours of hard work, shucking corn and making the last crop of hay. But one fall near Wickenburg, Iowa wasn't normal at all. When Jacob Stolfus's barn burnt down, he saw a rider on horseback leave his cornfield. After Sheriff Dawson investigated, he said the fire was arson. The news spread through the Amish Community, leaving Plain people stunned and in fear.
