He assisted his father on the farm and later took over management of the same.
In 1900 Charles and I married. After a short honeymoon in Chicago and Milwaukee we returned to the farm where his home became our home. Here we spent 45 years sharing our joys and responsibilities. Here our six children were born and grew to man and womanhood. They all went to Witen School which was abandoned last year when it became part of the Black Hawk consolidated school. They all graduated from Prairie High School during the time R.S. Babington was principal and Walter Doll was reacher. Three of the boys, Howard, Carl and Wallace took a short course in agriculture at the U. of Wisconsin. ...we as a family attended and were active in the Evangelical church of Honey Creek.
