Auctioneer’s Note:

Witman Auctioneer’s, along with the Shenk Auction Company are honored to conduct today’s auction where we are selling the extensive collection of antiques and collectibles owned by Earl Eugene Hummer, including glassware, crocks, pottery, quilts, fine furniture, tools, guns, Hit ‘N’ Miss engines, and 1944 Model ‘A’ John Deere tractor.

Eugene is well-known for his hobby of restoring and showing his Hit ‘N’ Miss engines with which he has made ice cream for family, friends, and hobby enthusiasts for many years. His prized Stover Engine, converted to turn several freezers, will be sold with an 8- and 12-quart ice cream freezer fully assembled and included.


Also being sold is Eugene’s 1944 Model ‘A’ John Deere tractor, originally purchased by Eugene’s grandfather and used for generations by members of the Hummer Family. Eugene has meticulously disassembled and reassembled the tractor (80 pieces) as a labor of love for the land that he and his family have farmed for generations. In recent years, Eugene has proudly displayed this tractor (and his Hit ‘N’ Miss engines) at various shows and parades.

This is an auction you do not want to miss!

In an effort to honor a life-long dream of his farm remaining in ownership for his children, sale of the real estate has already been conducted.
