He claimed to be an oiler when the outfit was in operation on July 16, 1919
     The eight men in the partnership are C. W. E. Sponneman, Ferdinand Keller, Jr., William Hoefel, Henry Raubach, Oscar Horstman, Julius Wille, George Koenig and Gus Zulzind. The outfit was maintained mainly to thresh wheat on the eight farms but the company does work for others.
