Full title:The Kusudo brothers and their families in front of their typical New England house at Red Bird Farm, Wrentham, Mass. From left to right, Ted Kusudo and his wife, Kay [Kiyo]; Hiroshi Kusudo and his wife, Jeannie, and their children Jean and Linda. Ted and Kiyo were from Gila River, while Hiroshi and Jeannie were from Rohwer. Ted and Kiyo Kusudo left Gila River in the early summer of 1943 to accept seasonal work on a fruit farm in Pennsylvania, and later in the year they joined Ted's brother, Hiro, at the Wee Laddie Farm near Worcester, Mass. This farm is a poultry and orchard farm but they were principally interested in the poultry. Hiro Kusudo came to New England directly from Rohwer in August, 1943, and accepted employment on the Wee Laddie Farm. Jeannie and the children joined Hiro during this last summer. Both Ted and Hiro are expert chick sexors and both are interested in poultry work. Since joining forces in New England they have been together on the same farm where housing was provided. They have recently accepted a new position with one of the more up-to-date poultry plants in New England. Since coming East, Mr. and Mrs. Ted Kusudo have become the proud parents of Jo Anne, born September 2, 1944. Before evacuation the families had lived in the vicinity of Los Angeles.<lb /> Photographer: Iwasaki, Hikaru<lb /> Wrentham, Massachusetts.
