TIMELINE


Sadie and Albert lived in a variety of locations, as can be noted from the birthplaces of their children. For a number of years they lived on West Fourth St. in Marshfield in a two story home which the children called "the black house," because its exterior covering was tarpaper. Apparently they owned this property, but sold it in the early 1930's. Son Washington purchased the adjoining lot and he and Ruth later built a home there. Earlier, in about 1928, Earl Cox had built a small home there for himself and Myrtle. 

Sadie and Albert then purchased raw timber land, complete with snakes, out in the country where they attempted dairy farming. One day, while prowling in the woods, I saw a snake and went into terrified flight over a barbed wire fence. In the process, my left palm was ripped open on a barb and I have a 1-1/2 inch scar still. We traveled to the doctor, probably in Greenwood, in a touring car with isinglass curtains. My memories also include a vivid picture of going with "Little Grandpa" in his open "truck" (which may have been his conversion of a Model T Ford) to deliver milk, probably to a cheese factory, although my picture includes the trip only, with the lush growth of brush glistening with dew as we traveled down a narrow lane. Albert built a small one-room cabin which was a delight to the grandchildren but was probably not much fun for Sadie. There was a stove, table and chairs, cupboard, and built-in double bunk beds. We slept on the top bunk and were threatened with dire consequences if we wet the bed, since Little Grandpa (to distinguish from his father, Big Grandpa) said what we did up there would leak down on him. It was a joke to me, but apparently my sister, Joan, took it to heart and now thinks she did wet the bed. A small barn housed a few cows named for his granddaughters! I wanted to learn to milk a cow and during my first and only lesson Patty, the cow, (for Patty Parmelee) stepped on my foot. I limped for several days and had no further desire to milk cows. A wall of the barn bore the pelts of skunks, and the "oil" of the skunks had somehow been extracted and was used as a rub for chest colds. My memory doesn't include a bad smell, but Joan says "It stunk like skunk!" In any case, it was as slippery and slimy as any oil could possibly be. Ugh! This farming venture failed and they returned to Marshfield to live in rental properties, sharing one with Myrtle and Earl. In the mid-1930's, before the death of daughter June, Albert decided to go to California, probably in pursuit of that state's "golden promise" during the Great Depression years. Sadie did not go with him, and he did not return. 

Sadie, while visiting with relatives in the Wausau area, accepted a position as housekeeper-companion with the Holeton family, father and daughter Elizabeth, on the outskirts of Wausau. Mrs. Holeton was recently deceased and Mr. Holeton wanted to provide assistance for his daughter, who was diabetic and not in good health. Sadie remained with Elizabeth for the rest of her life, and the relationship developed almost into that of mother and daughter. After Mr. Holeton's death, the farm was sold and they moved into Wausau proper where they lived together until Sadie was placed in a nursing home, where Elizabeth visited her every day. 

"Gran-Gran", the pet name given her by her first grandchild, yours truly, was a short, plump lady with curly, curly hair. She was good-natured and loving and was loved in turn by all who met her. Her grandchildren loved to hear her "spooky" stories, told in a dark room. One story consisted of bones coming down from the attic and joining up to form a skeleton, which yelled "gotcha!" at the end. Even though we all knew what was corning, she would build the suspense, and we jumped and screamed when the "gotcha" arrived. She had a clear, sweet singing voice and loved to sing hymns, but she would, on occasion, sing the songs that were popular when she was young, one of them being "After the Ball". She was religious and quietly spiritual and was the person who introduced me to the idea of reincarnation. A Paulson-Shidell relative had a childhood memory of her as having false teeth which clicked (true) and telling fortunes from tea leaves. She also told fortunes with cards and we would beg to have our fortunes told, but with us she would only pretend and would predict fantastic and sometimes outrageous futures. She was a "storybook" grandmother and it was a privilege to have know her. 

Sadie died in Wausau, WI, on 3 July 1967 and is buried next to her daughter, June, in Hillside Cemetery, Marshfield, WI.
