Abraham Hollingshead p 8
"Abe" Hollingshead was born in his fathers flour mill in Minerstown, Utah, and worked in his father's flour mill or saw mill as he grew up. After they moved to the Bufflao ranch in Lyman, Wyoming and was dowsing for water when deciding where to dig a well, an old indian told him if he would dig right under a very large ant bed nearby that he would find plenty of water. They found water about 3o feet down, past hard clay and shale, it was the best water in the area. Most of the wells in the area had alkaline water.
