Karl left the farm in 1905 to attend the Business College in Dixon, IL. He married Edna Marian Sturtevant in 1910. He taught school in Eau Clair, WI. Later they moved to Souix County ND. They built a mud dugout, which served as shelter that first winter. Their daughter and son was born there. Later a framed wooden house was built. About 1920 he moved his family to SD to raise cattle and goats. Then in 1936 he and his wife rode horseback to Dallas, TX. Karl fell in love with Texas, so they stayed. They settled on property on Elam Rd. in Dallas and lived there until his death. He worked at the Fairgrounds, loved the ball games and enjoyed life to the fullest. His favorite radio progam was Edgar Bergen and Charlie Macarthy.
