The father brought his family to the United States in 1864, settling in Sheboygan County, this State.

He also ran a stage and carried the mail from Hillsboro to Newburg for three years; next kept a hotel in Caledonia, Moorhead and Fargo, North Dakota, and then settled on his farm, where he remained eight years. He subsequently returned to Sheboygan County, remained three years, after which he sold out and returned to California. He again returned to Sheboygan County, and in 1890 came to Thorp, whree he owns property and is engaged in a meat market.
