  • Note:
    Was only 5'5" tall but weighed over 300 lbs when he was run over by a tractor (in late 40's) on the farm. Farmed whole life until then. Broke many bones in that accident, wore cast on forearm and used cane until death. Died of "old age".

    Yes, he really was 17 and she really was 15 when they got married. They were married for an amazing 73.5 years before she died! They received an award from the President of the US for such an accomplishment. Rode horse-and-buggy in the pouring rain, up a flooded old Shaver Road from Schoolcraft to downtown Kalamazoo, to marry Thelma.

    In 1930 Census, he and family found in Leonidas Twp., St. Joseph County,Michigan.
