Stella worked to support her family and remained a widow for 26 years, She moved her family to Rochester and Camden, Ny to be near her family. CJK lived in Rome, NY when he left in 1905 for Springfield (Mass) College. He graduated in 1909 as a Physical Education instructor. Marrying in 1910 to Reba MacDaniels, they moved to Greenville, SC where he was the first YMCA Phys Ed teacher there. They had 3 children, Stella, Fred & Esther, moving back to Rome briefly, before permanently settling in Plattsburg, NY. CJK raised his family in several rented houses and AFTER his 1946 retirement purchased a home. His interests were gardening, photography and some genealogy.
