was an accomplished pianist. He played in the movie houses before

there was sound -- suspense music for mysteries and so forth. He is

said to have had a wonderful sense of humor.

Karl worked for the Springfield Street Railway in the trolley car days

as a bookkeeper.

Karl had blue eyes and brown hair, and he was short with a medium

build, according to his draft registration card. He was disqualified

for WWI service on Sept. 12, 1918 because of his withered limb.

Hilda spent most of her time up in her room. She was very

intelligent, though, and loved crossword puzzles. She also watched a

lot of TV, including football games.

The other 12 siblings died fairly young, but Hilda lived to be almost

95 years old.
