Joseph and Martha farmed in St. Clair County, Missouri until the fall of 1902 when they traveled with their four small children by train to Montana to join other brothers who had left Missouri for Montana, earlier. They arrived in Billings, in the middle of November, 1902, then rode in the caboose of a slow moving freight train to Red Lodge, Montana. They homesteaded on 160 acres 15 miles west of Red Lodge, arriving there on November 22, 1902. Joe's brother, Tom helped in building their first log cabin home. Six years later they added additional rooms to their home. This home was one mile north of Linley (later Luther), Montana.

The first building in the Luther townsite was a general store belonging to Joe and Alex Boggio. Later there were two general stores, a post office, two saloons, a dance hall, a boarding house, two blacksmith shops, Dr. Carl Koehn's office and a Methodist Church.
