     This photograph, taken in 1944-45, of Tom York’s potato house in Mars Hill, from left, Max Terrell, Carl York Sr., Stanley Mullen, Kenneth Mullen, Donnie Anderson, Donnie Burtchell, Haywood Drost and Alfred Bell. The York crop was shipped to A&P Stores by broker Carroll Kelley. Both Kenneth Mullen and Bell are grandfathers to Shane Mullen, who continues the family tradition today as a potato buyer with Tri Winner Inc. in Presque Isle.
