Further down the road was the home of the Muschany brothers, Bill, Ed, and Louis, pictured here with
their sister, Daisy.  These men lived with their mother, Margaret, in this house (below left) until her death
in 1939.  All three brothers had farmed and worked at a variety of other jobs.  They also had a grist
mill on their property.  Neighbors knew them as the best kind of people.  Louis was known for his
ability to tell stories.  One of his brothers once said of him, "Louis would lie.  He just tells novels."

Margaret Muschany before her death in 1939.  Everyone called her "Grandma."  She smoked a pipe and had a parrot that imitated her voice so perfectly that the men would come in from the fields, thinking she had called them.

Margaret's husband, Civil War veteran John E. Muschany, was the last person to be buried in the Muschany family cemetery, which is located on property owned in 1940 by the McKenneys (see D-238).

Louis, Ed, and Bill moved to this house in Wright City
after their property was taken for the TNT plant.
