Wells - Darlington -- Source: Crawfordsville Daily Journal Saturday November 7, 1914 Darlington Ind Nov 7 - Everything is now in readiness for the drillers and tool dressers who will arrive tomorrow morning from Van Buren, Ind to begin work on the sinking of test well No 2 for the Darlington Petroleum Company. The new well is on the WC Miller farm 1/2 mile east of town. The drill will be started Sunday at midnight. The company is becoming better acquainted with the work it has before it and the exact task is now pretty thoroughly understood. The experience with the first well has been valuable to those engaged in the work and much progress is expected. The new site is looked upon as an exceptionally good one by the members of the company and a favorable result for the drilling is looked for.
