He was always dreaming of coming to America. The cargo wasn't doing to well. He was saving his money to pay for the trip. Mom's two brothers were here already & earged (her spelling) him to come. He had mother as his girl friend he told her when he was settled on a farm he would send her money to come to America too. Dad settled near Forrest (Illinois) as farm laborer he saved his money & took farm implements as wages or horses, cows, and pigs till he was ready to farm. He had moms brothers write to mom and send her the money for her to come to America. She worked as a maid till Dad married her & moved to the farm dad rented.
Their first Baby was born dead. The next 2 years later a son died of a broken apendix or so they thought. He was walking in a furrow behind Dads' plow he cried was bent over with pain.
