Additional information submitted by pMcP

Albert Kasowski emigrated to the United States in 1851, first locating in Pennsylvania, where he remained for a brief period then went to Texas. During the succeeding year he hauled merchandise with an ox team from St. Louis to Texas. He next took a position on a boat on the Mississippi where he handled freight for a year, then returning to Pennsylvania, in 1854, he was married to Josephine Pulaski. In 1856 they came to Iowa, locating in Jefferson county. Here, he and his brother bought a 40 acre tract in Walnut township, erecting thereon a log cabin, which for some years thereafter served as their residence. They placed their land under cultivation and when he was not engaged in the operation of his fields, Mr. Kasowski worked out. After 3 years he bought the interest of his brother in their little farm. By reason of unremitting energy, self denial and frugal habits he and his wife acquired the means to enable him to buy other land from time to time, until he owned 160 acres, which he farmed until his death.
