Legacy Quarterly Staff
Sue Heffner
Hi, I'm Sue Heffner. I grew up a "city girl" and didn't drive a tractor until 20 years ago when Gary and I married and I moved to the farm. We have a small cow/calf operation in east-central Ohio, produce a lot of hay and collect Ferguson and Massey Ferguson tractors. Gardening and raising roses are one of my many passions. My two married children and four grandchildren love to come and spend time on the farm. I have been retired three years from the U S Postal Service where I worked in the Sales and Marketing Department. My main responsibility for the magazine will be keeping the books and handling subscriptions. Gary and I are very excited about the magazine and we want to welcome you to Legacy Quarterly.
Gary Emsweller
The love of the Massey family as been in my blood since childhood when I grew up on a small, family farm in Southeast Indiana. I quickly learned about the qualities of Massey and what they have meant to the legacy of our agricultural heritage. I come from the field of education, retiring from Purdue University after having served the public for thirty-two years. An avid collector of Massey tractors and equipment, I also have an impressive assortment of Massey Harris farm toys. My wife Ony and I enjoy traveling to Massey feature tractor shows and events while meeting the greatest people from around the world.

Hello, my name is Joe Warehime. I've been a web developer since 2004 and have worked extensively on both e-commerce and social networking websites. As well as the webmaster for LegacyQuarterly.com I am also the CTO for WritingRoom.com, the winner of the 2009 NEOSA Best Website. My wife Rachel and I were married in 2004 and we share our home with a flock of birds comprised of parrots and parakeets. Our African Grey parrot Cyrus is often found sitting on my shoulder while I work. I was also a chef for many years and still enjoy preparing new foods and finding great places to eat. I'm here to grow the LegacyQuarterly.com website along with the magazine so if there are features that you would like to see on the site, don't hesitate to let us know.
(Senior Contributing Photographer)
Ten years ago I stumbled accidentally into photographing tractors. I was hooked and each year it just keeps getting more interesting. While my focus is often on historical sites, the tractors are by far the main focus of my photography. An occasional vintage truck or an old Mail Pouch barn pops up now and then too. Even more important than the photos are the new places discovered and the great people I've met who help make it all possible. So far, it has been a fantastic adventure. It is an honor to be asked to contribute to Legacy Quarterly and I hope to provide the best photography possible.
