    Submitted by Florence Harms Entz in the book "Meade, Kansas Centennial, 1885-1985"
    Henry and Maggie Harms moved their household goods, milk cows and a team of purebred Percheron horses from Fairbury, Nebraska to Meade, Kansas in a railroad box car in August, 1920. The couple, with their three children, Florence, Elmer (Merle, as he is known), and Arthur, traveled in a Model T-touring car. The unique aspect of the old Ford was the set of Dad's initials (HRH) stenciled on the narrow panel between the back and front doors. The family never had trouble finding the car. Dad had been assigned as pastor to a small group of believers, with plans to organize a local Evangelical Mennonite Brethren Church southeast of Meade. Our family lived in rural rental houses from 1920-1926. (We moved about once a year). The fall of 1926, Dad and Mother bought Grandmother Thiessen's farm almost two miles east of Sunrise School. This was home until the parents moved to Oregon. The children attended McNulty School and later Sunrise School. There were a total of 10 children in the family.
