Olí Doc Hayward probably only used it to scare away the chicken hawks swooping in on Taunton and his chicken yard.

Probably just about anywhere in rural America in those times.

Looks like Dr. Hayward liked English Setters...from American Kennel Register, January 1885, entries 1950,1951,1955 and 1958.

I always enjoy researching the original Parker owners.

Maybe this wasn't his only Parker...

Edit: Entry 1950 was cut from the picture I made and the names are mixed up on entry 1951 however 1955 and 1958 list the owner of this 10 gauge lifter

If he had an affinity for English setters he most likely had a small bore ot two.
