Russia, homesteaded here and, with the help of his young wife whom he married in S. Russia, and who survives her husband, carved out a real American home in which he successfully raised a large family of seven sons and five daughters. He was respected and honored by all his neighbors and friends and his passing leaves a sad vacancy in the community which cannot be filled.
