Came to Canada in 1918 from Austria to Regina, where he worked as a drayman. After getting married, they farmed at Semans, SK for 2 years, but, finding the land too dry, moved to Lintlaw around 1930.
Jacob bought a six cylinder Advance Rumley steam engine, with 4 or 5 plow under it, in 1944. It was later donated to a Saskatoon museum (I believe the Western Development Museum).
In the 1921 census, Jacob, his wife (shown as “Lina”), and their two eldest children (Eva and Ernest) are shown in the Millington sub-district (now defunct) of the Last Mountain district in Saskatchewan (near Strasbourg). They are living in a wood house, on section 4, Twp 26, Rg 20, W2 meridian, and he is listed as a farmer. The census was taken around July, 1921, as Ernest is listed as being 5 months old. It also says that he immigrated to Canada in 1912.
