Karel Mulder, the son of the jailer’s hand, was born in 1812 in Goes, Zeeland, in the Netherlands. When he died in 1870, he owned 3/8 of a house in the Papegaaistraatje. It was located in the inner city of Goes, but in a small alley off the main roads.

Look at that! Is it the same swing I swung on or a different one? This is Mom’s cousin Elaine playing at the farm.

Do you have any fond farm memories?
