John & Catherine (Meyers) Wilshusen
Posted by: Shirla Archibald Klenk Date: July 23, 2000 at 17:11:50
  of 175

Hello,
I am searching for family connections of Catherine (Meyer) & John Wilshusen who came to the U.S. from Prussia after Februrary in 1866. Data which follows has been gathered from a descendant of one of the sons, the daughter of Regina Simmons Sherratt, a great grandaughter of my grandmother and my own background as the descendant of my grandmother Kasina Katrina Maria Wilshusen (name Americanized to "Mary")who married Shelvy Archibald in St. John, Stafford Co., Kansas. When a child she told me all but herself were born in Germany. Since this data was discovered on the internet by Regina, it has come to light that she, being a younger child, was mis-informed, as at least 3 were born in Germany.
Anyone looking at this file need not bother to go past the listing of children of John and Caterine as from that point on it is only a listing of their children and grandchildren.

1 John WILSCHUSEN

Birth:       2 Dec 1836, Hanover (Prussia), Germany
Death:       Between 1904-1928, WFT Est
Occ:       farmer & grist mill owner/operator
Reli:       Lutheran
        My father, Elza, told the story of their trip over, spending 6 weeks scooping leaking water from the ship. It had 4 or 5 sails.
Copied by Maria Wilshusen (Mary) Archibald on Oct 1, 1965 from a sheet he had written in German, and the childrens names from the "Family Songbook of 1854" in which John Wilshusen had written family data in German as follows:
       "We came to this land the 1st of                                    November, 1866 to Missouri & to Kansas                      the 4th day of Sept., 1879, where we                             lived on a farm until 1904 when we moved                      to town. Our home was blessed with 11                      children, 7 sons and 4 daughters of                             which 7 are living."
Grandpa Wilshusen, Mary's father, had ground grain in Germany. He came here and homesteaded 160 acres, a quarter. He created a grist mill here. He built a house with what we now call..(and I stopped recording information there for some reason. Shirla Klenk)

Artistic and musical talents. She and her brother used to play for dances., She was very tiny but with a strong personality. Youngest of her family and one of two daughters (Lena was her older sister), she was apparently rather spoiled and allowed to ride her horse and did little housework, or so the story goes, before her marriage. After marriage for a time the young couple lived with Levi and Celestia which she found quite unpalatable as Celestia had definite ideas about how housework should be accomplished, difficult for this strongminded young woman. It may well have been a difficult adjustment, especially since my father was born in the first year of the marriage. He was a beautiful little curly headed blonde, blue eyed child.
In 1961, after Shelvy died, Grandma Mary moved to Dodge City to be closer to Pearl, Marion Jr. , (Pearls son),& his wife Darlene and their family, and Beulah Mae and Fred Diehl,( Pearls daughter).
13 grandchildren, 33 great grand-children in 1969 when she died . I was one of the grandchildren; Regina one of the great-grandchildren.

Birth:              26 Jul 1903, Stafford Co., Ks
Death:              17 Dec 1999, Las Cruces, N M
Burial:              Vista Memory Gardens, Truth or                                    Consequences, New Mexico
Occ:              barber for a short time, Singer Sewing               Machine Co. sales office manager, salesman,even including repair on occasion!, Real Estate sales for many years, several state real estate licenses. Also sold insurance.
Educ:       Brilliant man, high school education but missed getting his diploma due to a senior prank of putting a cow up in the bell tower of the school. He had been All State end on the Haviland H.S. football team, quite a feat when he was not heavy and about 5ft.10inches.
Reli:       Active in Baptist church with my mother, Maxine. Later, it dominated his life after they were apart and he became a member of the Assembly of God Church, serving as a missionary where he met his last wife, Lynda Rodriguez, the daughter of the family in the home in which he was staying while in the Philippines.

A portrait of him as a blonde angelic looking child with soft curls was on the living room wall and I loved it. When Grandma moved to Dodge City after Shelvys death, John and Mildred and undoubtedly Pearl, cleaned out the home and when next I saw it, my father had rescued it and felt he was helping when he trimmed the decaying edges of the oval picture to one much smaller. I was quite dismayed having seen it in its previous pristine condition.
Sadly enough, much later in his life, he gave to my cousin Archie Wayne Simmons a much coveted (by my siblings and I) hand-carved toy gun made for him as a small boy by my grandmother. We were never allowed to play with it as children and I was devastated upon learning about his having given it to a child from another family. I told my father how upset I was about it and he said he would get it back from Archie and at the time, having just visited I felt bad about aslking for it and later I learned that Dad left it with him. Probably embarrassed about asking for it back. Later I wrote to Archie asking for it, but he never responded to my letter. I will never get over its loss as it is the only example of Grandmother's carving and gift to MY father and we, in our family, will never have possession of what should be ours as we have very little of rememberances of our father. A few photos and that is about it.

Dad was first married to Crystal Carr, but the marriage was annulled. He wanted children, she did not, he said. Mother was #2 and they were married 28 years. He then married Sarah_________, red headed and very thin and quite plain. Next was a woman he met through his church, a Korean woman whom he visited there prior to the marriage who had a small son. She was apparently quite wealthy and brought some beautiful furniture with her to the U.S. which did not fit into his home, which he always bought with cash. It was a 2 or 3 bedroom and of moderate size but not really large. 2 years was all it lasted and they divorced. He was upset as the divorce cost him $2000 and I dont know what else. Then he did a missionary trip to the Philippines and married a woman 40 years his junior who apparently loved him and he, her, so that upon his death she planned to remain in a city she really didnt enjoy to be near his grave. So sad. Her name was Lynda Rodriguez Archibald.
The last 46 years or less, he lived on his bartering, selling and buying real estate, off his investments as he grew too incapacitated to deal as he had always done. He had put in very little to the Social Security fund so could not get much out of that. At 96 and just beginning to lose his ability to remember everything, he was lucid to the end. He shared with me that his breathing wasnt going to get any better. It was a sorrow for both of us.
Never idle in his thinking about ways to improve his and his family's standard of living, when I was in the 7th grade and we lived in Nickerson, Ks, for a short time he put together a crew and installed home insulation as he could see a real opportunity for making some good income.
When visiting him in New Mexico in the summer of 1998, he told me a story: Elza's maternal uncle (which one-there were about 8) gave him a horse named Prince. Grandpa Archibald, dad said, was mean-he gave dad 2 baby mules and dad cared for them, brushed them and they were the fastest ones in the county.
Dad said that Virgil MacDonald got a dose of venereal disease and Grandpa Shelvy let him sleep in Dad's bed so Dad wouldnt sleep at home (good for him) and returned to Byers where he was working as a barber. Dad bought a car and paid for it-had a girlfriend/drove it to Emporia.

She and my mother, Maxine Barnes Archibald, always liked one another, and when my dear mother was in the care of my cousin. Peggy Jo Swonger Pattee in Weatherford, Okla. just prior to her death, due to the ramifications of the quadruple heart surgery she had had, Aunt Pearl came to see her when in the area as her third husbands family lived in Oklahoma. It must have been a sobering experience for these two ladies at the ends of their lives to have met again. Hopefully, it was joyful also. Mother in her 80s and Aunt Pearl about the same age.

When I spoke to Archie in December 1999 after my fathers death, he spoke of how much he loved my mother, Maxine (Aunt Maxine). She was very kind and loving to all of Pearls family. Much to be admired, Archie worked hard and kept his high standards of family and loved ones. He is to be greatly admired for what he has achieved while still keeping close to his heart those high ideals of love, honor and caring. He and Shelby share a fine relationship which many would envy. At the end of his mothers life, he brought her home to live with him in their home in Longmont, Colorado, and enjoyed telling me of getting to know her on another level at this time of her life.
Ever loyal to family, he visited my father, Elza, in Las Cruces, New Mexico on at least one occasion. Earlier, my father had given him the toy wooden gun hand carved by my grandmother, Mary (Maria Kasina Wilschusen) when a small boy, about which I was devastated when shown it as we had never been allowed to even so much as handle it as children as being too precious for us, his children, to play with or even touch. And now he has given it to a cousin. Im sure Archie treasures it, but not to the degree that we, his children would, Im sure.

My grandmother, Mary, must have blamed herself for his death. My father said he sat outside the house listening to Baby Lee cry and cry. The old country doctor apparently couldn't help. My grandmother had to go to a hospital for her severe depression and probably had a nervous breakdown, for a time, I dont know how long, afterward as she was so devastated by her babys death. My father, Elza, had such a soft place in his heart for his mother and always catered to her. He was always especially tender to persons who were experiencing severe illness or surgery, etc. throughout his life.
