Kochazhikathu family in Myladumpara

Mr Kurien who did everything for his future needs in Konthitta, but in the mean time there was an uncontrolled flood in the river Kallada thus everything lost and left the area and gone to a nearby hilly area called Myladumpara in the same year .  In this small place he met  four more neighbours  who reached from the  central travancore area. I take this opportunity to mention their names here.  They are  Mr. Geevarghese from Aranmulla, Mr. Mathunny and Kutty both brothers from Venmony, Mr. Pathrose from Kallumkal.

Mr. Mathunny has handed over the plot to Mr Kurien  which he was made survey for himself for his settlement .  Meanwhile he made his hut  near the houses of  Mr. Mathunny and Kutty.  There also Mr Kurien faced bad days. His wife Mariamma  died due to snake bite when she fall down in the  well  accidently.  It made Mr. Kurien's life more horrible there, but he believed in Christ and everything put on the shoulder of  Jesus Christ and continued the days.
