He was told by members of the Church(Seventh Day Baptists) that the far m land was rich. He took a train out there to see, saw what he liked and moved there ( prob , around 1910) to the Nortonville, Kansas area- outside of Topeka.

I was told that his wife had a very hard time adjusting to the move. My grandmother'(Jea n Meritt)s sisters and mother went to Kansas to recover from illness for a while. "June" as he was called had a tubucular hip and basicly worked himself to death. -alway s had that limp from contracting TB.
