Business: Early Well Drillers


Surnames: Mack, Schuld, Klimmer

----Source: Family Scrapbook

According to the verbal historians of the area, the Macks were the "well" men of their day there are a few wells left around the country side which have been stoned up without mortar and are still in excellent condition.

The stones of which some are monstrous were placed so that they did not fall in the well. These wells had been dug by hand with the diggings palled up in a bucket and the stones let down the same way.

Later Joseph and Adam Schuld were well drillers (1896) and Simon Schuld and Frank Klimmer were also in the same business together. There seems to be no record of the village having a dug a well although many private wells were here.
