Solomon Angst travelled from Switzerland to Canada as a young boy with his family. He settled in Ontario for several years, but then moved all the way to the west coast and settled in Washington state. Like so many of my family, he was a farmer. I find it interesting that he married his first wife when she was 19, and his second two decades later when she was 19 (he was 41 by this time. He is not the first that I have found in the family to marry a much younger wife after being widowed and then expand the family some more.
