From the Tampico Tornado:

August 16, 1907
The Yorktown creamery suspended operation Monday. Mr. COOLEY the proprietor traded the creamery some time ago for Texas land and since that time has conducted it for the land company. With the shutting down of this factory the only creamery in this vicinity is the Dodge Co. factory at Prophetstown.
