He resided in the village of Unity a short time then removed to the town of Eau Pleine where he made his home for 18 years. 4 years ago becoming too old and feeble to do the work on the farm, he sold the homestead and with his wife moved to Colby where he resided until about a year ago when his wife died, since then he has made his home with his daughters in the town of Eau Pleine and the village of Unity.
