Emil Lipprandt (spelled Liperandt), age 86, a pioneer of the town of Green Grove, passed away on Saturday at the home of his son Reinhold. The funeral was held at the Green Grove Lutheran church on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Goetch officiating. Two other sons, Oscar and Herman also of Green Grove survive.

***Family Note

My g-grandfather, Emil Lipprandt, purchased his three lots of 80 acres each from the Wisconsin Central Railroad Land Company in 1887. This land (Twp. Green Grove) was only sold until the timber that the railroad used for ties and fuel were cut. Apparently the tree cutting area extended about two miles South of the line between Abbotsford and Owen as just to the South of our land in Green Grove, many large pines and hardwoods remained.

From what my father mentioned to me, when my g-grandfather built the three farm houses for his sons, the pine studs in the walls were cut into 15 to 20 foot 2X4's and the length of the walls (of the studs) ran from the sill plate on the foundation to the roof rafters.... I would assume other older farm houses also were built this way.

Regards, Bob~~
