The blacksmith shop of McLuen & Bellows was established in 1874 by McLuen & Brother. Mr. Bellows became a partner in 1882. These gentlemen, besides their working in iron, have quite an extensive business in agricultural implements, and owing to a most extended acquaintance in the county, he being an old settler although a young man, can command a good trade. James S. McLuen, of the firm of McLuen & Bellows, blacksmiths and dealers in agricultural implements, is from Noble county, Ohio, and was born June 28, 1854.
