Drilling for Oil in DeKalb County in 1940

1940.  Drilling for oil in DeKalb County will begin soon.  Last week there was the erection of an oil derrick on Lewis Eraas' farm south of Shabbona.

Evidently nothing came of this search for oil as I don't know anything about oil production in DeKalb County.

Now, ask me about corn and I can tell you about that.
