Randy Knight of Wallace submitted the above two photos and states, “My great grandfather, Peter Kaus, had physical strengths, determination, and knowledge, unimaginable today.  He had no internet or cell phone, but was a competent farmer and logger, with survival skills in husbandry and carpentry.  He never owned a car, or flew on a airplane, but followed the railroads across the country homesteading in Wisconsin, Nebraska and Kansas, leaving Germany as a child in the 1850s.  Finally, homesteading near Ferdinand, as seen in the top photo.  He gave up farming in the 1920s and moved to Cottonwood, where he rests today.  He pioneered the way for the comfortable lives of future generations. “ The lower photo shows the farm today with just the one barn still standing.
