They couple made their home in Winneshiek Co, Iowa (immediatly west of Allamakee Co.) until after 1800 when he moved to South Dakota with the rest of the Ecks and many of his relations in the Kumpf, Pieper, and Schwarzhoff families.
He farmed in an area norteast of Florence in Codington County of South Dakota until his death in 1915. He and Mary had at least four children, all born in Iowa: Benedict, William, Clarence, Mary.
