Married in ?
No children. Joe had children from his first wife.
Joe and his brother were wood carvers from Austra. Many of the local churches had their carvings, and the Milwaukee Museum used some of his carvings in a display. They lived in Oak Creek, just north of Caledonia, Wisconsin, in an old farmhouse, built with handmade wooden pegs in the mortise and tenon joints. Emma was an energetic person and active gardener into her late 80's, growing large pumpkins and tending her raspberries, etc. In this picture, taken just days before Emma's death, you can see a few carved picture frames done by Joe on the wall behind her. There were carvings all over the house. The oak dining table was a masterpiece with squirrels and acorns on the table legs.
