This is the year 2008, so I will call the woman of 1909 a farmer as well.
Sometime around their marriage, Herman Henry Meyer and Anna Wilhelmina Seil took a portrait at Des Moines Iowa, and then headed for Sunnyslope Farm in the plains of Minnesota somewhat south of Mankato. They did actually buy a new car. I really don't know when they bought it, or what kind it was. They did use it for many trips.
