They own their farm without a mortgage. They have been married 21 years.

Nicolas, age 73, was enumerated on the 1930 Federal Census in Cascade, Olmstead County, Minnesota. He rents his dwelling. Clara was enumerated with their daughter, Alice, in San Diego. What is interesting is that she was listed as being married. Nick is given as "single." I wonder if they really divorced or if she was just visiting her daughter and grandkids.9 Nicolas worked as an independent mower sharpener. Follow the link to see the census image.
