They purchased a homestead in Glengary Township, Fillmore County, Nebraska. It was located in the W 1/2 NE 1/4 of Section 10. On the 80 acre homestead, a sod house, stable, granary were built, and a well was dug. The family raised wheat, oats, corn, barley and vegetables on their farm. Later, John purchased the SW 1/4 of Section 35 in Liberty Township from the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad Company. It was located about a mile north of their homestead.
