Had a business in mid-town, that made hay slings. He invented the hay sling, was raised on Law Lake near Madelia, started his business in Mankato, then moved it to Minneapolis. After he died, the business was named after his in-laws, Hackney's. I am a descendant of his sister, Agnes Law, and their father was Archibald Alexander Law, first settler in Watonwan County.
