After living there three years they came to Coopersville, Mich., and have lived at the old homestead for the last forty-five years.
  Mr. and Mrs. Laug came to Michigan in company with the families of Henry Lubben and Henry Busman.

They also bought forty acres, now owned by Albert Busmap, which was cleared and could be cultivated.
