Death: Mar. 15, 1954

Emilie was born in a Catholic Hospital and the nuns spelled her name as Amelia. The family talked about having the birth certificate changed, but decided that it was too much trouble.

Emilie lost her mother when she was only two years old and her father sent her to live with Herman and Emilie Neitzel, her uncle and aunt. She stayed with them until around 1906 after her father remarried.

Emilie is purported to have been a troubled child and suffered from bipolar disease as an adult.

Emil and Amelia were blessed with seven children in spite of Amelia's ill health most of their married life. She suffered from bi-polar disorder which took a huge toll on their family life.

Their firstborn , Raymond Emil was born in 1922 and was given up for adoption at 4 month of age to James and Florence W. Doud who changed his name to James Desmond Doud.

Emil and Amelia moved to Sisston where they rented a farm on a half-share basis and stayed there for two years. Emil sold his half-share and moved the family back to Ipswich. He purchased land, cattle, horses, etc. so he could farm.

Emil was also a horse trader and was involved in real estate. He also operated the Ipswich Rooming House.

A daughter, Pauline was born in 1931 and given to Julius and Melba Hardt 1 and a half years of age. Amelia was able to raise the other five children herself.

Emil and Amelia retired to Ipswich and moved into the Rooming House.
