Pre-Colony History:  

Home in Colony: Lived on the first land cleared by colonists after their arrival in Louisiana in 1917; it was located west of the Llano cemetery. In 1935 the crops looked good -- the berries had been gathered that morning, beans looked thrifty, tomato vines loaded down with large fruit, corn yielding roasting ears and sweet potato vines that promised a good harvest.  

Job in Colony:  

Other Info: In 1935 could be found pushing a lawnmower at the Quipp place.

In 1936 her daughter Genevieve, in a well-trained voice, sang a cute little story of "All the Little Chickens," and had to respond with "Why Can't I Have a Beau?" She was accompanied by Mrs. Quipp on the piano.  

Post-Colony History: In July 1937 the family sent a postcard to Ruth Jernberg in the colony to say that they'd finally reached their destination at Spooner, Wisconsin after they'd left a month prior.
