The web page that Scott Ketelsen referred to recently (website and photo are no longer there) actually has a picture of my grandfather Dr. William H. Presnell surrounded by Ketelsen kids; he was the doctor for a sizable chunk of the county and delivered many Clinton Co. residents (older than about 35) when they were born. He had a small doctor office in the town where my grandparents lived, Charlotte (between Delmar and Goose Lake I think).  Thanks, Tom
