Thomas Ary owned and operated a sawmill. He then rented out buggies in a stable in Carmi, Illinois. Then he worked in a furniture factory in Evansville. Then he worked on the construction of the twin bridges between Evansville, IN and Henderson, KY where he fell and was crippled. He could still get around, but couldn't work, except for odd jobs.
One time, Tom (Thomas' son) came home from the Navy and bought Thomas a Model T Ford and when Thomas drove it home and into the garage, he was used to saying "whoa!" to the horse team to stop, and he tried it with the car, but it did not work. He drove the car through the front wall of the garage! :)
