Denton FFA Alumni Association is planning a student
restoration of this 1949 Allis Chalmers C.
The tractor was
generously donated to the Denton FFA by Gordon & Sylva
Cohen of Copper Canyon in
memory of her parents and to provide their support for
agricultural education of future generations of Texas
mother, Nancy Mundy Surratt, was the first woman to
graduate from Michigan State with a degree in
Agriculture, when professors told her that no woman will
ever make it through the program! Her Dad was an
engineer, but they always dreamed of having a farm. At
age 55, he sold his business, and they purchased a small
farm in Clinton Township, Michigan. "Esmeralda" was
purchased and they operated the farm until they both
passed away in 1994.
