Joseph Schaus, next to the youngest in the family, is book smart. He was the one that started using the rotary type drilling and has made the business what it is today. Joe does the directional boring and most of the drilling, along with running the business. He is the boss, unless our mom tells him otherwise. Joe has both Michigan and Indiana well drilling licenses.
Edward Kelly Schaus does the hooking up of wells and service calls. Kelly, as he is called, always has a big smile on his face and is attracted to shiny things. If he sees scrap metal lying around, he will ask if you would like him to haul it away for you. With his scrap-hauling money, he has been focusing on his passion for model T cars.
