Moving from Milwaukee

In 1900, Paul and Wilhelmina (Minna) Junghans left Milwaukee with their three children, William, Carl and Paul Jr. Paul left his life as a tanner behind and became a farmer.

According to Paul's grandson, Richard Junghans, Paul left Milwaukee because "he couldn't take it any more in the lye pits at Gallun's leather works."

On March 26, 1900 they purchased a farm in Clark County, Wisconsin. Here is a copy of the original deed:

Paul and Minna bought the farm for $2600. It included:

- the house
- two heifers
- one mower
- one house rake
- two drags
- one plow
- one wagon
- one set of Sleighs
