Her father’s helper toiling the soil

Harriet Meyhoff was born in Center and lived there most of her years until this past winter. But at one time she probably knew as much about early day farming as many men.

The second child of Fred and Alma (Schmeling) Kuch, Harriet has deep roots in Mercer and Oliver counties. Fred was the third child of German-Russian homesteaders who settled near Krem. Today the Kuch family lies buried in the Krem Cemetery.
