    Notes 
    • As far as I know my grandfather never had a vineyard.( Answer to a question by Robin Young) He went to California and he and his brother John and Jeff had a dray business. He homesteaded by
      the Salton Sea in California and was a farmer. I know that he was at Palm
      Springs when they planted the palms there because he helped and he worked for
      some of the orange groves. My mother said that they used cyanide and birds
      would land on the wagons that were used to transport it, peck at them and fall
      over dead. I think he kept books for the groves too. When he moved to
      Minnesota he was the county tax accessor and was told he could use the adding
      machine at the courthouse. It was a hot day so he went home and did the
      figures in his head. He evidently was really adept with numbers
