    • Notes 
      • When Joseph married Lillian, he took her to live with his parents at their farm. The Kubesh family home was about 4 miles from Bechyn. The Skoblik farm was about 3/4 miles north of Bechyn and 1/4 miles west in a big grove of trees with an apple orchard to the east. When Martin died, the farm went to Joseph. He built a small house on the farm so his mother could live alone. By 1909 he wished to purchase more land. Since there was none in the area, he and his
      • hired man took a team of horses to South Dakota. There he purchase a 1/2 section in the rural Revillo area. When summer came they went back and plowed, built a house, barn and granery. They returned to Bechyn and loaded livestock, machinery and furniture on boxcars and moved the family to Revillo. Crops were so good that Joseph paid for the farm with his first wheat crop. The second year he heard of land for sale in Montana and bought a section of land. He lost the Montana land and the Revillo farm because of poor crops. The Skobliks lived on the Abe Vandervoort farm during WWI but had to move when the war was over and Abe's son came back to take over the farm. This farm was south of Milbank. Next, they moved to a farm about a mile north of Milbank near the Peter Mublou farm. They were on this same farm when in 1922 Joseph died. Leon was at home with his dad who was in bed with peritonitis while the rest of the family was at church. The pigs were making a lot of noise and Joseph told Leon to go see why. He came back and reported they were out of water. It was a hot day. Joseph got out of bed and carried water to the pigs. The poison circulated through his body and he collapsed and later died. (reported by Leon to JLS, May, 1992.) The family moved to the brick house on the present day Jim Rabe farm near Big Stone City. Josephine died 2 years later from complications after gall bladder surgery. The family tried staying together on the farm with Joe in charge which didn't work. When Agatha married Henry Ross, she took Lloyd and Leon to live with her on the present day John Van Lith farm. Jack went to Springfield, Frank to Tyndall to live with Uncle Frank and Joe moved to ND.
