THE ED KUHNHAUSEN FARM

I know. This is kind of a blurry photo. It is from a member of the Kuhnhausen family.
Charles Edward Kuhnhausen was one of the brothers who came to Glenwood from Germany with his parents and siblings.
He is featured in the previous Kuhnhausen family photo along with children Elizabeth, Minnie, Frank, Herbert and Will. His wife, Elizabeth Johanna died in 1900 so she is not featured in the family photo.
Ed later married Johanna Jorke. In the 1920's he moved to the Portland area.
Can you tell where this farm is located? The house is no longer there.

    I think that the big hay barn in the photo might be the barn that's on Troh lane where Chris tyndall lives.

    Sorry for not giving an answer to this sooner. This farm is where Paul and Mary Ladiges lived. Leona Garner lives there now. I think the barn that you see between the house and a shed is still standing.
