Margaret Doris HildebrandRow 1300Plot 1321
Margaret was born in Silberfeld, seven miles southeast of Waldheim. She took her Public School in Silberfeld.
Margaret married John on October 15th, 1939. In 1940, John traded his 1927 Chevrolet for a milking cow, Margaret received a cow from her parents. John bought four horses, second hand implements and started mixed farming.
In 1945 they bought two quarters of land which they had been renting, then rented a third quarter from Jacob Spielman. A few years later they purchased the third quarter.
In the winter time, roads were blown full of snow. So they usually travelled by sleigh; it was a covered sleigh with a little stove, in which we burned firewood. They were very comfortable in their caboose. In later years the roads were opened by forming snow clubs.
In 1969 John and Margaret moved to Waldheim and commuted back and forth to the farm.
In 1970, they lost their son K. Daryl in death after a short illness.
