    Notes 
    • He attended rural school #85 in Saline County. As a young man, he earned his living by working on threshing crews and corn shelling crews. During the harvest time, the hired men slept in a hayloft or hay rack. On 5 September 1918, he enlisted in the U.S. Army. He was a private in the Model Machine Gun Company A, 163rd Battalion and was stationed at Camp Hancoda in Georgia. During basic training, he contracted the influenza that was sieging the country, and was unable to embark overseas with this company. He received an honorable discharge at Camp Dodge, Iowa on February 28, 1919. After his discharge, he engaged in farming west of Geneva. Anton worked with horses, and had many scars that resulted when he was breaking the young colts. He was in a threshing crew with the Spicka brothers, Joseph Herynk and Ed Kuss. To supplement the farm income during the depression, he used his team of horses to help with WPA road construction in Saline County (Milligan, pp 265-266).
