FAMILY BACKGROUND
Born Sept. 14, 1961. Bob gives a very detailed description of where is family came from in Germany, when they arrived in Illinois, when the barn was built, and possible reasons as to why they came. Has done a lot of research to find this information out. Can trace ancestry on his father's side back to his great-great-grandfather Frederick Wieneke.
FAMILY FARM
Talks about how the family farm was built in the 1850s and still looks and sits in the same spot today. His great-great-grandfather purchased 160 acres and then split off to 80 with a neighbor.
CROPS
His family started an apple orchard business. The area has nice rolling hills which is good for drainage.
