The Philo Greeg family homesteaded on the Biddle Ranch in Coldwater Kansas and all of the Metzker family at one time or another lived and worked together on this ranch. The ranch is still a working ranch and I was told by one of the older surviving members that it is one of the few ranches in the area that owes no money and still turns a profit. It is quit a beautiful place and has changed little since I was a child. All of the original homes that I remeber as a child some 40 years ago are still standing. Many are still owned by the original decendants of Charles Metzker.
