!i!, 16--TIMES-NEWS (Mt. Pulaski, Ill.) THURSDAY, APRIL 8, 1971 ABRAHAM LINCOLN ATTORNEY FOR JOHN DEAN GILLEITE Mr. and Mrs. William Drake of Elkhart, Illinois, in coopera- tion with the Logan County Abraham Lincoln Heritage Foun- dation, are the sponsors of this historic picture by the interna- tionally famous Abraham Lin- coln artist, Lloyd Ostendorf. The picture depicts Abraham Lincoln discussing legal work with John Dean Gillette at his farm home near Comland. This home built in the 1840's still stands today. Mr. Lincoln did a great deal of legal work for Mr. Gillette, who eventually moved to Elkhart and became known as the Cattle King of America. In 1838, John Dean Gillette moves to Logan County. This man becomes an extensive land owner; breeder of Shorthorn cattle; helps to complete the railroad in 1853 from Chicago to Saint Louis, three years before the Illinois Central was complet- ed. Mr. Gillette helped to found the city of Lincoln and Lincoln College and becomes known as the Cattle King of America by establishing the export of cattle and work with the establishment of the Fat Cattle Show that later became known as the Inter- national Livestock Show at Chi- cago. A three dimensional terra cotta relief of'Mr. Gillette is lo- cated at the entrance to the Stock Yard Inn at Chicago, as well as an oil portrait in the Baron's Room of the Saddle and Sirloins Club Saint John the Baptist Chapel in Elkhart Ceme- tery is dedicated to the memory of Mr. Gillette. At the time of his death, he owned 16,000 acres of land and 4,000 head of purebred Shorthorn cattle. Mrs. Drake. is a descendant of John Dean Gillette and lives in the house at Elkhart built by Mr. Gillette in the 1870's. The Drake's have a herd of Shorthorn cattle from the original blood- line developed by Mr. Gillette that were shipped throughout the world as breeding stock be- cause of their large size and sturdy characteristics.
