Water Well Drilling
The lumbering industry and side work of Water Well Drilling continued for almost two decades, when the boom of the manufacturing industry in the Waterford MI area seemed promising.

Waterford MI Area Company Growth
Roy Lalone Well Drilling became a company that grew with the return of servicemen and new families. Like his elders, Roy too was an innovator, utilizing new ideas to produce quality Water Well Drilling in efficient time. The air compressor in the background was used to develop a well and specialized tools were used to help increase the drilling speed. Also, new innovative pumping equipment was created for the Waterford MI homeowner’s use.

Family History
The earliest known picture we have is of a wooden right angle drill rig, with the horse connected to the turn table. From left to right we have David, Nora and John Jr. – all siblings of John Sr. who was possibly taking the picture. The horse’s name is Barney, and he was purchased from the local race track after he lost too many times in a row. From what we have been told, Barney, although stubborn, did learn what to do. Eventually, he learned commands from hand signals and, as explained to us, reacted to the slack or tension of the rope from the work performed as though a member of the crew.
