Took the words out of my mouth! The fact that some of their children were born along a major thoroughfare (now Interstate 35) 'causes me to believe the family performed harvesting work for other farmers. It's no shame 'cause farming was the major industry during that era and location. They simply accumulated money then moved westward to purchase land.
