Birth: Jan. 15, 1869
Death: Dec. 19, 1936

Arthur and Carrie met near Tilden, Nebraska. Carrie was 16 when they were married. They lived on a farm near Tilden until 1907 when they moved to Norden,Nebraska. They bought a 440 acre farm and later traded it for a house in Springview, Nebraska where Arthur worked in a meat market. They lived there until 1918. In 1918 they purchased a meat market in Long Pine, Nebraska. Arthur had his first stroke while in the meat market. It only effected his hand for a short period. He was very unhappy as a butcher. He rented a farm on Buffalo Flats outside of Ainsworth (The Wheeler Place). He grew corn and oats. In 1931 he was hitching a team of horses when he had a serious stroke. Ivan was with him and helped him into the house. The stroke effected his mind and speach and left him totally disabled. Carrie moved the family to Ainsworth. They lived for three months with Rose and Glenn, Then moved to a home in Ainsworth. He had a fatal stroke 5 years later. He was especially fond of Kay, his granddaughter, who loved him and sat in his lap by the hour. Carrie`s hair turned white by the time she was 40. She ordered a wig from Sears with a lock of hair from Rose. It came back reddish. She wore it because she thought she looked to old to be Ivan`s mother. She stopped wearing it in the late 1920`s.
