and on May 4,1856 they came to Chickasaw County,Iowa to join his father and family who came here in preceeding year.
He was always a farmer and a man of great industry and honesty.
Josephus and his bride first lived on the Hines farm; later moving to his own homestead one mile east of Chickasaw and one mile south. This was the home of Joseohus and Mary Jane all their lives; also the home of Josephus C., his youngest son, and now of his grandson Lyle and family.
At the time of his death he owned 680 acres of land, part of which was bought from the government.
Their seven sons were farmers and all lived near the old home. But John had asthma so bad he was compelled to move to North Dakota in 1902. All of John's family live in North Dakota but Clarance who lives in Nashau, Iowa and
