Research Notes


parcels of land there.  That is where my grandma and grandpa first met.  Grandma said she remembered seeing the farm with the old man and all the young kids running around and they would laugh, little realizing that some day she would be marrying one of them.  The Eysnogles then moved back to Richland Co. when grandma was in her teens.  I know they were there in 1900.  Grandpa sometime around then decided to "go a-courtin" and told the folks around that he was going to Chicago to learn the butcher trade.  Instead he went to Richland Co. and married grandma.  They came back to Clark Co., Wisconsin and sometime around that time the Eysnogles came back too. When grandma and grandpa came to the loyal farm they had a log shanty.  Mom has a photo of that and perhaps Gwen Piggott has one too.  The house shown was moved from up the road a ways, I don't know exactly where. One of the places the Eysnogles owned was a brick building originally built as a small hotel or inn.  It is now demolished but mom has the stained glass side panels at the front door.  My cousin, Gwen Piggott, was a small girl and lived there.  I am attaching the wedding photo of Charlie and Blanche Schaeffner.

Conversation of 3-13-07 with Irma Schaeffner Hollister. Grandpa Charlie sold his milk to the cheese factory in Spokeville run by Geo. Fischer or Fisher.  Mr. Fisher got the factory from a Mr. Rhode. The house in the photo was moved from north of Spokeville by moving tractors to its present location. The part moved was the long part in the photo and the front was added on. Grandpa was a practical joker also. One evening with a full moon out, he and the hired man saw the plow of the neighbor across the road, a Mr. Getchell, sitting in the field and he and the hired man connived to put it up in an elm tree in the field. They managed to do it and the next morning Mr. Getchell couldn't find his plow until he looked up and saw it in the tree. Grandpa and the hired man went over and discussed how it had gotten there. Mr. Getchell opined that it had to have been a crew because no two men could have done it. Grandpa finally confessed and they got it down for him and had a good laugh all around. In some respects it beat watching television if they would have had it then.
