Paul was the youngest son of Frank and Sophia. He married Ida (1884-1958), and Mildred was their only child.
As the youngest son, Paul inherited the home farm. He and Ida raised Mildred in a sort of "duplex" arrangement, with Frank and Sophia living on the other side of the same house. In later life, Paul lived with Mildred and her husband Rudy for almost twelve years. He was 97 when he passed away.
