In 1925, four-year-old John W. Kalpin, Jr. moved to Hillsborough with his Russian immigrant parents and grandparents, one sister, and two brothers. The family had a farm of 55 acres on New Amwell Road between Auten and Triangle (South Triangle). Three more children soon followed, but the death of John Kalpin, Sr. early in the next decade forced John to leave school at the age of 15 to help support the family.
