They came at once to America and settled about 5 ½ miles northwest of Dorchester when the country was practically all heavy woods, and remained on this farm for 36 years. In 1817 he came to the village of Dorchester and lived here until three weeks before his death when he went to live with his son on the home farm. Mrs. Habeck died in 1917.
