On June 12, 1899, they bought a farm three miles north, and one mile east of Abbotsford, and, in 1902, they bought an additional farm three miles north of Abbotsford on Highway 13. They lived on one of these two farms for 47 years, then in 1946, sold the home to their son, John, and moved to Abbotsford, Wis. They celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1949.
