They then selected 160 acres of land at Djuan where they lived for the rest of their lives. The four children of the family were all born in Germany - Wilhelm, Gottfried, Heinrich and Earnestina.

    Wilhelm, who married Caralone Morgenstern before coming to this country selected land at Upper Djuan and engaged in farming including dairying, pig raising, maize, wheat and potato growing. They reared a family of five boys and five girls.
