  • Notes 
    • He was a tall man. Leta has a picture or two of him and his new bride

      As per Leta, her dad had done various types of work to support thefamily. It must have been hard to support the 5 children. He worked longand hard for them. Leta said they were poor but didn't know it at thetime.
      Her dad was a farmer, had his own crops. He dug coal from the familiesland and sold it locally. He took it out by hand. She said he had a timegetting the payment from some, their was one individual who would onlypay when it was time to buy more from her father. He owned at varioustimes 2 threshing machines. Her dad name the first one "John" and thesecond one "Jim." They were steam driven, like train engine powered.Actually they were called engines. He stopped using the first one, shedoesn't remember why, and drove it into an area of the farm and left itthere. Leta said it would probably be worth something now as anantique. She is correct again.
      Thrashing was a big project, it would involve the male children andneighbors. Her dad probably sold his services with the Thrasher forcash. She didn't remember him bringing anything else home. He may nothave made much of a profit from this. Her brother Jo would usually help,his job was to keep the steam up.
      He raised a few sheep for wool and lambs for extra money.
      They had a few cows, and chickens for butter and eggs. Her mother wouldsell butter and eggs for her own little spending money.
