The Stump on the Paul Brandt homestead was the place of many family photos. This one has Mary Brandt in the front with Eliza and Amelia in 1907.

Here is my great Aunt, Esther Eicher, with Minnie and Henry Weitzel and Amelia Paul at the famous stump at the Paul-Brandt Farm homestead. Notice what looks like mullein in the hand of Minnie. I common plant that goes in waste areas. Fun to see the detail a century later.

  1. Goiter is the swelling of the thyroid gland which commonly occurs in women. It may follow the development of benign nodules or in rare cases may be triggered by benign or malignant tumors or an iodine deficiency. Some people develop goiter as a result of taking certain drugs, especially those that are used to treat manic-depressive states and diabetes.
