      Paul and Anna had 16 children in their first 22 year of marriage. To provide for the family a large garden was planted which the children helped to hoe and weed. Potatoes, onions, squash, pumpkins, and carrots were put in the cellar under the house for winter use. They had a variety of fruit trees and grapes in their orchard. Five to seven cows were milked every day and they churned their own butter. Chicken and duck eggs were set under hens to hatch. Sometimes they had 24 hens setting at one time. Later the family purchased two incubators. Paul raised Red Polled cattle and hogs. There was a smoke house north of the house which was used to smoke bacon and ham everytime Paul and the sons butchered. The older girls did the cooking and baking. Four large loaves of bread were baked every day.  (History of Milligan, Nebraska, pp. 228-229)
