Grandma was born in Iowa and when she was about two or three years old she moved with her parents and grandparents Daniel and Sirena Lewis to Cuming County Nebraska where her aunt Nellie and her family were living. A few years later she moved again with her parents and her grandfather Moses Coulter to Rock County, Nebraska. After her Grandpa Coulter died her parents and all of her brother`s and sister`s moved to Missouri and Grandma stayed with her grandparents Daniel and Sirena Lewis and her aunt Gladys in Orchard, Antelope Co., Nebraska.
After Grandma finished school she moved to Tilden and this is where she met George Brixius. They were married in Battle Creek in Madison Co., Nebraska. When they were married Grandpa`s uncle and aunt George and Minnie Reiss were with them as witness to the marriage (as seen on their marriage license). After Grandpa Peter Brixius died they moved to the farm to help Grandpa`s brother Harry with the farm. After Harry died they moved into Creston where they lived for several years. After a couple more moves in Nebraska they moved to the farm in Missouri. This is the only place that I knew as Grandpa and Grandma`s House as I grew up.
I spent one summer with my grandparents and learned a lot about how people lived years ago. Grandma did her washing in a wash tub with a scrub board. They had a pump in the kitchen that looked like an out door pump. That was the only water in the house. The bathroom was out the back door (out house). Grandma had a big garden and the cellar was full of her canned goods. There phone was the old wind up kind and there were 8 to 10 other families on the same line. Grandma was an excellent cook. My favorite dish that she made was Apple Crisp. After Grandpa died Grandma lived alone on the farm in Iowa, were they moved in their later years. She continued working in her garden until she was in her early 90`s. After she fell and broke her hip she moved to Princeton, Missouri where she lived until her death.
