The neat home shown in the photo was put up by Emil in 1945, the large barn in 1953, and other buildings were 'erected along 'the way. Mr Schumacher handles a general farming operation. and had a fine Holstein herd until, wanting to ease up a bit, he sold it off. Mrs Schumacher is the former Laura Klatt, and the couple was married in June 1924. They have no children.
