Hi All you Kautz's. I am still trying to find out if I am one of you or if I am of a different line. I know that there is a Kautz family tree and one of these days I will find the missing branch. My father is Steve E. Kautz, his father was Edward Kautz.

Biographical Sketch of Joseph H. Page, Lafayette County, Missouri

This file was contributed for use in the USGenWeb Archives by: Joe Miller mio@netins.net Penny (Eisenbarger) Harrell <Incog3678@aol.com>
 

From "History of Lafayette County, Mo., carefully written and compiled

from the most authentic official and private sources" St. Louis, Mo.

Historical Company, 1881.

 

Joseph H. Page, farmer, P. O. Page City.  Born in Warren county, Ky.,

April 16, 1813.  Came with his father and family to Lafayette county in1827.  They traveled the whole distance in wagons, which contained alltheir worldly possessions.  Lived in the wagons until they succeeded inerecting some cabins sufficient for their protection, which were located within a few rods of his present residence.  Here he lived the life of a pioneer in the full sense of the word.  In 1830 he went to Fort Gibson, in Cherokee Nation, where he worked eleven months, clothing himself, and saving the sum of $60 out of his wages, which he sent to his father.  In 1835 he again went to the Cherokee Nation, and returned at the end of  six months after experiencing many privations, with $150.  On January 7, 1836, he was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Couts, a native of Kentucky, born September 5, 1819, and who is still enjoying good health; able to do her own work.  When first married they commenced housekeeping in a manner consistent with their means, thereby escaping the trials incident to the lives of young married couples, who desire to make a showing which their income will not warrent.  They lived in a little cabin with simple furniture, Mr. Page making his own table out of a  plank, caught in a drift, in Little Tebo.  Mrs. Page's dowry consisted of a cow, a calf, and a bedstead.  Comfortably situated as they are now, surrounded by all of the comforts and many of the luxuries of life, the aged couple may review their past experiences with complacency, and  point with pride to their luxurious home, acquired by their own unaided efforts and unremitting economy.  They are the parents of fifteen children, twelve of whom are now living.  Two died in infancy, and the other at the age of 22.  All live in this state.  Mr. and Mrs. Page are members of the Reformed Church.  Mr. Page is a member of the A. F. & A. M., Lexington Lodge.  The farm upon which Mr. Page resides is a fine one, with all the necessary improvements in the way of buildings, machinery, orchards, etc.  One apple tree in his orchard measures nine feet in circumference.  Probably Mr. Page has done more than any other one man, towards developing the resources of this county.  Active and energetic, he is always on the alert and ready to put his shoulder to the wheel in the prosecution of any enterprise which meets with the approbation of his well matured judgement.
