Family History

This was the home of Herman J. Even (1905-1969) and his wife Marie Even (1912-1993) for almost 60 years. The couple married in 1930, and purchased the home soon after. They shared the home with their children, Dorothy, Patricia, Donald and Connie. I wonder how they managed the two bedroom situation, not to mention six people and one bathroom.

Herman was a machinist for John Deere Tractors for 31 years and retired just two years before his death. Marie continued to live in the home until her death in 1993.
