Notes For Alexander Leiker:
Alex had a severely damaged heart with leakage of the valves causing the heart to enlarge to double its normal size. He had rhemumatic fever at the age of 14. Alex worked as a farmer, carpenter, and a sheet metal man. He was a quality carpenter as he was quiet, patient and artculate in whatever he started. The way he taught his sons how to saw wood reflected his approach to life and people in general. He said that you let the saw ride without effort and never force it. He related that if one forces something, it just gets much harder to accomplish. He did not have taste for discipling his children and would rarely become irritated or angry. When he had to discipline he did it only half-hearted. It was obvious that he had his Mother's compassion and patience.

The year prior to his death, he built a new home for the family and did all the finished carpentry work himself. He had to rest for extended periods of time but then would procede to work again. After Christmas he developed psnumonia and died January 3, 1953 of a combination of pneumonia, congestive heart failure and lung cancer.

Burial: January 10, 1953, Liebenthal, Kansas
Cause of death: Congestive Heart Failure damaged by Rheumatic Fever at age 14.
Medical Information: Developed Lung Cancer shortly before his death. He was a smoker of cigarettes.

Notes for Christina Enslinger:
Christina was a farmer, creamery and feed stor operator, an avid gardener, ironed clothes for a living and her last employment was as a housekeepr for St. Anthony's Hospital until she retired.

Her husband was an invalid due to a severe heart condition and so she primarily had to be the provider and care giver. She was only 4' 10" tall and was called "Christinya." She had ten children of which the first was still-born after a very difficult birth. She almost single-handed raised nine children, made sure they all went to High school and they never went hungry. She made sure they had proper clothing even if she had to sew most of the items herself. They were never without proper shelter or medical care. She routinely would betcher 50 chickens, with the assistance of the children, in one day and would sell them to a local hospital. Her garden was large with a wide assortment of vegetables and for many yers grew three acres of potatoes. She canned anything not consumed immediately including beef and pork. A typical Saturday meant baking a dozen pies. Bread was baked at least every day. She baked many wedding cakes. On Mondays she washed and it was no uncommon for her to wash as many as twenty loads plus loads of wash and iron up to forty shirts since she had six sons and a husband. Until 1952 she cooked on a kerosene stove, had no refrigerator, and used a gas iron to iron clothing. Her washing machine was a gas powered machine.

Burial: November 1988, Buried in St. Joseph Cem. in Liebenthal, Kansas.
Cause of death: CHF
Medical Information: Developed dementia a few years prior to death, probably caused by TIAs causing O.B.S.
The Wasingers
The ancestry of Franz Wasinger and Anna Scheck is shown as far as can be ascertained from church records in St. Fidelsis Monastery, Victoria, Kansas, and from vistis with siome of the older people who knew Franz and Anna Wasinger. The parents of Franz Wasinger and Anna Scheck are known and documented. The grandparents of Franz Wasinger are in doubt. In the mid 1930's Frank Windholtz visited with Franz Wasinger about his grandparents. Franz Wasinger said that his grandfather was Christopher Wasinger. He did not know the name of his grandmother. Helen Hall in her These Are Our Religion has a Johannes Wasinger, spouse known, as the grandfather of Franz.
In "History from 1760 to 1938 of Joe Wasinger, G. Peter Wasinger, Anton Wasinger, SR., Anton D. Wasinger" translated by Anton D. Wasinger, is an account of a Joe Wasinger, married to a young woaman named Mareda, who migrated with the Germans to Russia 1764. THis JOe, about thirty years old, was the father of Johannes, a Christopher, and none other children. This Johannes is supposedly the great great grandfather of this writer. The Christopher is the forebear of nother group of Wasingers who came to the United States at the time.
This writer does not know who his great great grandfather Wasinger was, but likes to believe that Grandfather Franz Wasinger knew who his grandfather was. Grandfather Franz Wasinger was about sisxty-six years old in 1935 to 1936 when Franz Windholz interviewed him. According to Windholz, Grandfather had a clear, sharp mind and a good memory. So this writer likes to believe that his great great grandfather and the great great grandfather of all the third generation descendants of Franz and Anna Wasinger was a Christopher Wasinger.

Genealogy of Fredrich and Lucy Werth

Co-Founders of Schoenchen, Kansas

By Rev. Alvin V. Werth, O.F. M. Cap., M.A.

Saint Joseph Catholic Center
215 West 13th Street
Hays, Kansas 67601

Three days after ALVIN WERTH's death, his guardiann EARL MEYER began his funeral homily saying, "It would be difficult for anyone on such short notice and. with such limited time to offer an adequate reflection "on Alvin's long and full life. Three months later it is still difficult."
"Anyone who knew Fr. Alvin will recall," Fr. Earl continued, "that he was meticious and extracatious in planning. all the details of his life." Perhaps it is not so well known that he was also very carerful in documenting most of it.
Alvin understood the value of documentaation for any history, and left 15 cartons of it to be digested at some future date. One of the most precious of these records is a 56-year-old motionpicture of his first mass at Schoenchen. He also left reams of notes on local and family history, thousands of sermonds, and a box after box of photographs.
There are also about 500 cassette tapes which will need to be carefully sifted before deciding what to keep. Many were taped off Mother Angelia's Eternal Word Television Network, which he loved to watch in his last years, but many others are recordings of interviews he conducted over the years of family members and other people from earlier eras.
Promptled by the 80-year-old four-seasons candle which, at the urging of Alvin's mother, had burned at Alvins' baptism, his first Mass, his 25th and 50th jubilies, and now his funeral, Earl summed up his life byy referring to and commenting on four overlappping seasons of Alvin's life: his family, his priesthood, his mature study, and his retirement.
Alvin, the 3rd oldest of the 12 children of Nikolaus and Magdalena (Hertel) Werth, was born 29 Augg. 1907 and baptised under the name Vincennt the following day by Fr, Charles Minig. DUrinng high school at Hays Catholic College, he played the violin in the school orchestra and sang in the Messiah chorous at the normal school (now Ft Hays State University. At the age of 18, he graduated first in his class from junior college at Hays Catholic College, and soon after left for the noviate at Herman.
Earl added that "In one sense he never left home. He spoke of his parents often and as though they were still alive. He followed every detail, almost daily events of his extended family and the activities of his hometown. More than once, when he was too sick or too waek to make a trip to Victoria, when news came that a grandniece or grandnephew was being married in Kansas City or Chicago; he instantly recovered and enjoyed the trip."
Alvin's sudden death cut short the completion of a family-related project he had been working on for some time, a genealogical study of the Werth family he was nearly ready to take to printers.
Alvin received minor orders from. Bp. John M. McNamara in Cumberland on 4 Oct. 1930, and the three major orders from Bishop Francis Tief in May of 1932: subdiaconate May 1 at Concordia, diaconate May 5 at Victoria, and priesthood May 8 at Hays.
"He was rightly proud of being the first priest froom his home parish at Schoenchen." Fr. Earl commented. "He enjoyed his work as a priest and found personal fulfillment in his priestly duties which were many and varied. He was a pastor, a chaplain, an administrator, a religious superior, and an author in Maryland, Missouri and his native Kansas. Even late in the hospital to visit the sick; and everyone got a personal prrayeer and Fr. Alvin's special blessing."
Alvin was happy in all of the pastoral assignments he held between 1933 and 1977 and corresponded withmany people in all of these places. Shortly before attending the Cresaptown MD centennary in 1985, he wrotte some old friends that he doubted whether his health would permit his traveling there, but that he would be there in spirit. "If I don't get to see you again in this life." he wrote, "I'll see you. in heaven, where there is no more pain and suffering, nothing but ssupreme happiness."
In his final bulletin at Antonio, Alvin said that he left with a heavy heart because "I like it here," but added quoted Mac. 6, 22, that he had submitted to his provincial's will".. . . in a noble manner, worthy of his years, the dignity of his advanced age, and the merited distinction of his gray hair."
During the course of his 80 years, Alvin seemed to have left the U.S. four times: at lesat there are references to that many foreign trips in the many boxes of documentation he left behind: a tour of 15 Italian cities, with the Fratellanza Society of St. Louis in August of 1968; a pilgrimage retreat at Our Lady of the Cape in Three Rivers, Quebec, in May 1969; a trip to Puerto Rico in 1980; and his goldenn jubilee tree in Munich, Heidelberg, Frankfort and various places in Switzerland and Austria in August of 1983.
Winter for Alvin, Earl said, was a retirement, which was neither bleak no cold, but rather thoroughly enjoyed. "He dabbled into family history and church history. He renewed old aquaintances and made new ones. He relished the opportunity to observe and comment on the busy life around him... He spent many hours in the chapel. He seldom missed a service or a devotion in churchh. For all practical purposes the only television he watched were programs on religion...His interests even in retirement were apostolic."
ALVIN WERTH had many periods of illness during his life, but her was able to keep active till the day of his death June 27, 1988. After a normal day's activities, he asked to be taken to the hospital and, to the surprise of even the doctor in attendance, died shortly thereafter.

The origin and history of the name WERTH

The surname WERTH, sometimes spelled Woerth, comes from the Gothic surname Worth. Werth, according to THE CLASSIC GERMAN DICTIONARY. (Follet Publishing Company, Chicago, IL.,) means value, worth.
In 1968, this writer was in London, England, I found numerous entries of the surname Werth in the London telephone directory. I consulted a professor in a London Museum about the name Werth and he replied that a youngster he had studied about warlord general from Sussex, England by the name Werth.
The Werth Coat-of-Arms (by John W. Ward and Co., 171 Meeting St. Charleston, SC) shows that people of northwest Europe having the surname Werth belonged to the Saxton tribe.
In 1983 I toook a tour through Germany and Switzerland. I visited my friends, Rita and Wolfgand Shafers, in Warburg, Westphalia, Germany. In a Warburg cemetery I found a well-kept lot in which the family members of Henry Werth were interred. I also spoke with two gentlemen by telephone in Warburg who were namned Werth; one was a printer and the other was a dealer in lumber.
The surname Weth also appears in Hesse, Bavaria, Baden-Wurtemburg, Germany. It appears in the cantons of Bern and Graubunden, Switzerland (B. Nussbaumer, Altmanwweg 1, CH-9012, St. Gallen, Switzerland).
The WERTH FAMILY HEREITAGE BOOK (piblished by Beatrice Bayley, Inc., Sterling, PA, 1981) lists 223 Werth families in the USA. The Hays telephone directory of. 1980, in addition to Werth families that I know who live in other states, number 108 Werth families not listed in the WERTH FAMILY HERITAGE BOOK. To the best of my knowledge, there are at least 331 Werth families in the United States in 1987.
The birth place of Fredrich and Lucy (Ebel) Werth is Schoenchen, Russia, located on the east side of the Volga River in the District of Samara, Russia. Schoenchen was founded there in 1770, approximately 40 miles northeast of Katharinenstadt. Schoenchen, a catholic village, was located between two Catholic villages, Solothurn (Wittman) to the north and Zug (Gattung) to the south. By 1773 Schoenchen had 54 families. In 1860 it had a population of 1200, and in 1918 it had 3194 parishioners. Capuchin priests were the first to minister ot the people of Schoenchen, followed by George Leibham, a native from German colony near Odessa, Russia, was a pastor at the time when many coolonists left for America. He built a beautiful stone church in 1903-04. He died in Schoenchen, Russia in 1910.
The S.S> Suevia departed from hamburg, Germany on July 19, 1876. It landed in New York August 3, 1876.
On the ship were a number of Volga German people who come from Schoenchen, Russia on the Volga.
Among them were:
WERTH-Fredrich and his wife Lucia and 4 children. They settled in Ellis Co. Kansas in the town of Schoenchen.
The grandparents of Fredrich Werth were Carl and Catherine (Kern) Werth. THe death certificate of John Peter Werth (State of Kansas Division of Vital Statistics, 26-641) sates that Carl Werth and Catherine Kern are the parents of John Peter Werth, who was born on July 21, 18366 in Schoenchen, Russia. John Peter Werth was the youngest brother of John Werth. Therefore (concluded that the parents of JOhn Werth were Carl and Catherine (Kern) Werth. They lived and died in Russia.
John Werth (1827-1875) married Anna Mertz in Schoenchen, Russia. They lived and died in Russia. John Werth farmed on a small scale and hauled the daily water supply for the village of Schoenchen from the Volga River. John and Anna (Mertz) Werth were the parents of Frederich Werth, who was born on August 15, 1846.

PARENTS OF LUCY EBEL
JOHN HENRY AND CLEMENTIME (LEIKAM) EBEL
The father of Lucy Ebel was John Henry Ebel (the surname Ebel appears in Alsace-Lorraine, France), and her mother was Clementina Leikam. John Henry Ebel was born 1820 at Schoenchen, district of Samara, Russia. He was an attorney and a district judge. Fredrick Werth Sr., the son-in-law of John Henry Ebel, called him "Der grosse Richter" (district Judge). For a number of years John Henry Ebel kept records at Schoenchen of all marriages, births, deaths, funerals, and handled other legal documents. At the end of each year he sent all records to the city of Sarratove, Russia, where they kept on file. John Henry Ebel was also a grain merchant; he bought and sold wheat in Russia.
John Henry and Clementina Ebel lived and died in Russia. THeir daughter Lucy Ebel was born Nov. 1, 1850. She married Fredrich Werth, Sr. on Sept. 27, 1867.
VOYAGE TO AMERICA
A few years after their marriage, together with other emigrants of Schoenchen, Munjor, and Liebenthal, Frederich and Lucyy Werth, and their childre, left the upper Volga region in June, 1876, to tavel to Saratov. After the emigrants arrived at Sartov, they boarded a train to Warsaw, Poland, Berlin, and Hamburg, Germany. They left Hamburg on the ship Suevia on July 19, 1876 and arrived a;t New York after a voyage of about three weeks. In New YOrk they made arrangements with Mr. Adam Roedelheimer, an agent of the Kansas Pacific Railraod, for transportation to Ellis County, Kansas, for the sum of $11.52 per passenger. They arrived in Hays, Kansas at 10th and Main Street, during the first part of August, 1876. On August 14, they arrived at Big timber Township in Rush County, Kansas and settled a few miles north of Liebenthal, Kansas. On Sept. 6, 1876, Fredrich and Lucy Werth's only daughter, Clementina, was born in a hastily impoverished sod hut.
During May of 1877, the Frederich Werth family helped to found Schoenchen, Kansas when they moved to the Wouthwest Quarter of Section 28, Township 15, Range 18, which is still the site of Schoenchen in 1988.
JoSEPTEMBERh Linen Berger, son of Melchoir Linen Berger and Katherine Margaret Klipphahn Schreiner Von Riedel Salzman, was born NOVEMBER ember 22, 1838, in Herzog, Russia. In 1857 he married Katherine Younger, born in 1840, in Herzog, Russia.
Katherine died in 1857 after the birth of a son, Andrew. In 1859 Joseph married Margaret Schamme. Nineteen years later on AUGUSTust 8, 1878, one of the largest transports of German-Russian emigrants left Herzog, Russia, for America under the leadership of JoSEPTEMBERh. Included in this transport was his wife, Margaret and their seven children.

JoSEPTEMBERh and family came to Ellis County, Kansa, and settled at Victoria until he had bought a farm where they made their next home. The Linen Berger land, purchased at $1.25 per acre, was one mile ast and a half mile north of Victoria. Here JoSEPTEMBERh struggled with the elements of the soil as a farmer. In his spare time he was busy with he carpenter tools making various household furnishings, his specialty being closet chests. In every event of a death, Joseph as a carpenter was asked to make the coffins for the settlers at Victoria, and its vicinity.
In 1899 Margaret, Joseph’s wife died leaving him and ten children. Three of their children were married; Herman the youngest was three years olDIED In 1898, a son Peter having taken over the farm, JoSEPTEMBERh moved to Victoria with his three youngest children. After all the children were married, JoSEPTEMBERh retired and lived with his son Herman and family.
In appearance JoSEPTEMBERh was tall and robust. He enjoyed good health all of his life. When he was young he lost an eye which was pierced by a pitch fork. This did not hinder him from making a living for his family or from working on his various hobbies, such as woodworking, reading or writing.

JoSEPTEMBERh Linen Berger, son of Melchoir Linen Berger and Katherine Margaret Klipphahn Schreiner Von Riedel Salzman, was born NOVEMBER ember 22, 1838, in Herzog, Russia. In 1857 he married Katherine Younger, born in 1840, in Herzog, Russia.
Katherine died in 1857 after the birth of a son, Andrew. In 1859 Joseph married Margaret Schamme. Nineteen years later on AUGUSTust 8, 1878, one of the largest transports of German-Russian emigrants left Herzog, Russia, for America under the leadership of JoSEPTEMBERh. Included in this transport was his wife, Margaret and their seven children.

JoSEPTEMBERh and family came to Ellis County, Kansa, and settled at Victoria until he had bought a farm where they made their next home. The Linen Berger land, purchased at $1.25 per acre, was one mile as and a half mile north of Victoria. Here JoSEPTEMBERh struggled with the elements of the soil as a farmer. In his spare time he was busy with he carpenter tools making various household furnishings, his specialty being closet chests. In every event of a death, Joseph as a carpenter was asked to make the coffins for the settlers at Victoria, and its vicinity.
In 1899 Margaret, Joseph’s wife died leaving him and ten children. Three of their children were married; Herman the youngest was three years olDIED In 1898, a son Peter having taken over the farm, JoSEPTEMBERh moved to Victoria with his three youngest children. After all the children were married, JoSEPTEMBERh retired and lived with his son Herman and family.
In appearance JoSEPTEMBERh was tall and robust. He enjoyed good health all of his life. When he was young he lost an eye which was pierced by a pitch fork. This did not hinder him from making a living for his family or from working on his various hobbies, such as woodworking, reading or writing.
JoSEPTEMBERh attended the schools of the times, but most of his education was self-august. He read everything he could get his hands on. His handwriting was beautiful and legible.

While in retirement he wrote his book. the book relates the hardships and joys of the Germans who migrated to Russia. It tells of the attacks by the Kirghiz and their capture of his grandfather, Hanjoerg Linen Berger. It gives an account of this transport from Russia to America and arrival in Victoria, Kansas.
Still very active and with desire to see his birthplace, Herzog, Russia, JoSEPTEMBERh and John Pfeifer left Victoria on MAY 4, 1910, for a tour of Europe.

I am trying to research my Mother's family; her father was Harold Rankin from Melcher, Iowa who married Myra Valentine. Her mother was Millicent Shaw and their family came from EnglanDIED

Dorothea Christina HERTEL, dAUGUSThter of Friedrich Hertel, married Christoph Gottlieb Schlegel (1640 to 1697). Their children include Christoph Friedrich Schlegel (1676 to 1772) who married Anna Maria (Mary) Eyster (1697/98 to 1779). Friedrich Hertel is my 7th great grandfather. He and his dAUGUSThter are the only people named Hertel in my genealogy so far. Is any of your researching this family? They were in or near Grimma, Saxony, Germany, but Christoph Friedrich Schlegel was in Germantown, Pennsylvania by 1700.
JoSEPTEMBERh was the son of Matthias HERTEL, BORN 27 FEBRUARYORN 1802 in Germany. Matthias emigrated to America abt 1847 with his sons and married Mary E. LEE, BORN abt. 1824 in TN. Mary's parents came from KY and died in Springfield I have been trying to find them, but no luck yet. I am researching their son, George HERTEL who married Lizzie TEAL. Below is the census info from 1860:
Cheryl

1860 CENSUS: - HERTEL
Town of Elkhart, IL - Sangamon County, census enumeration
1860:
HERTEL, MATTHIAS
Matthias was 50, M, shoe & boot maker, BORN in Germany
HERTEL, Mary, 33, F, BORN KY (Other census and children's parent info shows TN)
Hertel, GEORGE, 11, M, BORN IL
Hertel, Mary, 9, F, BORN IL
Hertel, Jos., 6, M, BORN IL (This would be abt. 1854)
Hertel, Thos., 6, M, BORN IL
Hertel, Sarah, 1, F, BORN IL
LEE, CORDELIA, 25, F, BORN KY (Mary LEE was George's mother)
Boggs, Jos., 28, M, shoemaker employee, BORN Penn.
I have several papers from my grandfather Russell Hertel (JoSEPTEMBERh's son) that refer to Matthias but I didn't have a definite connection. According to my research Matthias was married to Barbara Krell and had 4 other children when he came over from Germany. I'm guessing Barbara died and then he married Mary with whom he had the rest of the children including my great grandfather JoSEPTEMBERh (Josiah) who was a twin. The 1860 census info was very helpful.
John was born about 1867 in Germany and came to the US through Ellis IslanDIED Elizabeth was born about 1868 in Germany and came to the US through Ellis IslanDIED Their son George Martin Hertel was born 8 APRIL 1893 in International waters. (From him forward, I have info.)Cannot find when they died, where buried, etc. They are not in the same cemeteries in St. Louis as the rest of the families. I am having problems finding them in census also. They lived in St Louis City and county at various times.
Have seen the name spelled Hartel/Haertel/Hertel; Hertel being latest usage.
Johann HERTEL came from Saxony to NSW as a free settler with several children, Adam Ferdinand being my direct ancestor. I have info on their time in Australia but am seeking more from their time in Germany.
Anna Dorothea Hertel (Meyers) was born September 30, 1848 in Marktredwitz, Bavaria, Germany. She came to US just after the Civil war. I found that a ship "cambria" came to the US with
An Anna (21)Hertel and a Carl (18) Hamburg-NY AUGUST 11 1868
Louise Hertel who was born (according to the LDS website) MAY 30, 1814 in <Berlin, Brandenburg, Prussia> and died AUGUSTust 06, 1932 in Draper, Utah. I believe that Draper was where they eventually settleDIED Her husbands name was Ernst Ferdinand Feltner born in 1810 in <Berlin, Brandenburg, Prussia>. His wife's name was My grandmother's name was Anna AUGUSTusta Pauline and listed as her last name is Stein. Which was probably a previous marriage? She also had a dAUGUSThter named Martha Chwalcieck so she MAY have been married twice before she married John Paul Herman Thiede.
HAROLD HERTEL BORN 7/5/09 TO JOHN AND ANNA HERTEL THEY WERE FROM NYC AREA AND BORN ABOUT 1875. HAROLD HAD A BROTHER FRANK 2-3 YEARS OLDER. HAROLD DIED 1957, FRANK ABOUT 1990. HAROLD SAID RELATIVES WERE IN FRENCH AND INDIAN WARS 1750’S??

On FEBRUARYORN 2, 1830 John Christian Fredrick Hertel was born in North Warren, Mecklenburg, and Schwinn. On June 11, 1833 his wife Christiana, Marie Dorothea Hertel was born in North Lutz, Mecklenburg, and Schwinn. Their children were Frances, born on the ocean April 20, 1855, Charley--born in Halfway MARCH 23, 1857, Fred--born in Halfway NOVEMBER.5,1859, Dora--born in Halfway OCTOBER.5, 1862, Louis--born JANUARY.? 25, 1862, Ernest born NOVEMBER. 30, 1868 and Julius--born OCTOBER. 7, 1873. Julius fathered Idela, Estelle, Louise, John and Dolly. Julius, son John (Fredrick)
Children names were Louis and Julius DAUGUSThters married Footes and Esdohr. Wife's name was Dorthea Schroeder born in Libz Germany 1833. Apparently came from Alsace Lorraine
Charles Hertle born September. 10 1846 in Germany. Married AUGUSTusta (unknown) bore September 21 1847 also in Germany. Came to the U.S.A. before 1870 (their first child was born in Ohio in 1870)and settled in Salineville, Columbiana County, Ohio
Frederick Ertel BORN 27 MAY 1816 in Kandel, Germany. His Ertel ancestors were from Neuburg am Rhine. His brother Philip BORN 1813 arrived in the states in 1837. Date of arrival of Frederick is unknown. They jointly purchased land in Ripley County, IN 1846.

The Immigrant Ships Transcribers Guild shows the ship Mayflower leaving Havre, France arriving New Orleans JANUARYuary 17th, 1842. One of the passengers was a Frederick Hertel, age 28 and was from Bavaria
Philip also departed from Havre.

There is a 2 year difference in age of the two Fredericks.

I am wondering if Frederick Hertel could have been an Ertel.
Christian Hertel/Hertz BORN 1832 and Anna Uhl/Uhll BORN 1846 both born in Germany.
Julius Wilhelm Hertel emigrated to America around 1852 or 54 from Salzungen (now Bad Salzungen) Germany. Father Ludwig Gotthelf Elias Hertel. Married Emily Pruden of Coldwater, Michigan.

Charlotte Schumacher, was born to Wilhelm Schumacher. They lived in Aalen, Germany. There were eight children, five boys, three girls. Each dAUGUSThter married an officer in the U.S. Military, during or after the second world war. Charlotte, was 18, when she married my grandfather, Donald Harn. They resided in Hunnewell,Mo where they had three children. Charlotte's sisters, Magda and Heidi, moved to Illinois and Texas. One of Charlotte's brothers served in the German Army while Hitler was in power(not exactly a good thing, but it’s a fact.) Now, Wilhelm Schumacher, was in the furniture and clothing business, there in Aalen. And in former years had been considered a friend of General Rome, who only lived 15 miles away, and led Hitler's African Campaigns. This is all I know, from an old yellowed, Newspaper clipping of my grandparents wedding announcement. Charlotte was the first German war bride to be brought to that part of Missouri, at the time. And had been married twice. Once in Aalen, as is custom, and once in the U.S.
John Schumacher and Catherine Sophia Lindeman.
John was born SEPTEMBER 08, 1823 in Mecklenburg, parents unknown.
Sophia Lindeman was born JUNE 08, 1824 in Mecklenburg, parents also unknown. They were married and their first son was born about 1847. They MAY have lived in Gamzug, Mecklenburg around the time of their marriage. Family oral history has it that Sophia's parents disapproved of her marriage and "confined" her for a number of years between 1847 and 1856. When Sophia "escaped", their second son was born in 1856 and they came to America about 1859-60. John filed a DECEMBERlaration of Intent to become an American citizen Mar 31, 1860. They lived in Ray Township, Macomb County, Michigan. They MAY have been accompanied to Michigan by two brothers or relatives of John: JoSEPTEMBERh and Henry Schumacher. John Schumacher died MAY 08, 1891 and Sophia Lindeman Schumacher died Mar 28, 1901. They are buried in Meade Cemetery, Macomb County, Michigan.

Character study on Christof & Helen Stoecklein
The thoughts and recollections of them come to us through their youngest daughter, who at this writing was still living in Hays, Kansas. She is Catherine Zimmerman (Stoecklein). Both her parents, Christof and Helen came over to America on the same steam boat "SUEVIA" which landed in New York on AUGUST 3, 1876. With the help of guides and contacts there, they traveled westward, until they eventually landed in Victoria, KS. With this famous father, Peter Stoecklein, who was one of the five scouts to America from Russia before this trip took place, Christof and the Peter Stoecklein family finally moved to Munjor, Kansas.
Christof was 17 years old at the time they came to America. There were six children living, as they landed and Christof was the third oldest living, but the fourth oldest born, since the oldest daughter Anna died on the voyage, and had to be buried at sea.
The first job was to find work, and to. Raise money. Christof and his three brothers go some work on the United Pacific Rail4roaDIED His father, Peter Stoecklein, obtained a Homestead certificate # 991 in Wakeny, Kansas on AUGUST 1, 1883. He got 80 acres of land, seven miles south of Hays, KS. CHristof also got a Homestead Certificate #2854, adjacent to his fathers land, on AUGUST 7, 1888. He married Helena Herklotz on JANUARY 26, 1880, in Munjor, Kansas. With the Homestead Certificate, he obtained 180 acres of land right adjacent to his father, Peter Stoecklein. He farmed this land, as well as some plots of land near by, until his son Alexander went into the army for World War I. He then moved to Munjor, where he had a small home, and lived in their small Munjor home for the remainder of his life. He was always very quiet and never got overly excited He bore his burden of poverty graciously and his family honored him for it. He had cancer, and was sick quite a number of years. He died DECEMBER. 2, 1936, at the age of 76 years. He was married 56 years and reared their nine children.
She was commonly called by the endearing name of "Lehnya". Her parents were Gottfried Herklotz and Mary Catherine Boos. When the people were making ready to leave Russia for America, Helena desperately wants to come along to America with her brother Carl Anton. Carl gave his parents a solemn promise that he personally would take care of "Little Lehnya." So, with that assurance, she came along. According to church records, she was born in "Paninskojje", or Schoenchen Russia, on MARCH 2, 1859. She came on the same boat as Christof. When Helena's group went westward, they first land in Leibenthal, and from there to Schoenchen, KS.
Helena was by nature a kind girl and one who always helped others. She was happiest when she could do someone a favor. This story tells something about her spirit of congeniality. "She spent most of her life on her feet." This happened on the earliest times in Ellis County; the family needed jobs and money desperately. Her brother Carl told her that there were jobs in Salina, Kansas. "How do were eget there?" Henea asked "we walk there" was the answer. So they set our toward Salina, Kansas via the railroad tracks. When they finally got there, Helena's legs and feet were terribly sore and swollen. They took off their shoes but they couldn't get them back on again. So, Helena sat around the track, while her brother went to look for jobs. Luckily, after some time, he did return, with jobs for both of the MARRIED so they worked in Salina for a time.
Christof and Helen were married in Munjor and started their life of their own. This started a long fifty six years of married life for them on the farm, which was situated seven miles south of Hays, KS. Here she spent many years with busy hands and busy feet. She always had a nice garden on that farm She grew many vegetables. One time she had an exceptionally large watermelon. She took this melon and toted it on foot, to Hays and sold it. With the money she brought back several shirts for Christof and his younger brother and a few other little things. She was very tired, but when she was the happy faces on the men who got the shirts, she forgot her pains and was just as happy as they wren. It was harder to tell who was happier, the recipient or the giver.
Schooling was not open to all the children. The younger ones got to go, but not so the older ones, since they were needed on the far MARRIED after they moved down to Munjor, he did practically no work. His health was failing. It was common sight to see him on the porch, rocking him and smoking his pipe, while she kept rising around and in and out of the house. He finally died of cancer, and following this, she would stay with the children of her family, spending some time with all of the MARRIED she spent most of her years in Hays, where she died at the age of 92 years. All in Hays neighborhood where she stayed knew her and loved her. She never wore a hat in her life. She always wore dark clothes and a kerchief over her head called a "Babushka." After she died, the people missed that familiar figure, dressed in dark, walking to church, with the quick rapid steps.

Reflections on Carl and Anna (Doefler) Stoecklein
Carl H. Stoecklein was second oldest of the Christof and Helena Stoecklein family. The older children of Christof had to do a lot of heavy work in the family, since there was no help from any outside the family. The beginning years of the Stoecklin family were hard years. Carl was born SEPTEMBER 1, 1883, in Munjor, KS. He lived on his father's farm about seven miles south of Hays, KS. At the age of 21 years, on OCTOBER 25, 1904, he got married to Anna Dueler, in Munjor, Kansas. By this time, the ninth child was already born, and the Grandparents' family was already on handed
after this marriage with Anna, they moved a few miles south of Munjor, KS. They lived there until 1907. Their farming and family increased, so they sold this small farm and came to Ness City, of Ness County, and bought a quarter section of land south of Ness City. In a few years latter, they bought another quarter section. They also rented some land to farm Added to this, they had some cattle, mostly for their own use and hogs and chickens. Farming was a family affair, and with five healthy boys, he got the work done. Carl was remembered as a tall, lanky and quiet man, with good judgment and a good father. He died DECEMBER 8, 1970 in Ness County, Ness City, and age 66 years.
Anna Doefler, the mother, was born FEBRUARY. 16, 1886. She was the daughter of Conrad DOEFLER AND Elizabeth Schumacher. Elizabeth was the widow of Stanislaus Ruder and second wife of Conrad Doefler. This pair raised eleven children, one boy and one girl died young. The education of the parents was quite elemental, because the circumstances were quite different than they were for their children. They were all educated in the schools, and even high school.
Raising the folder on the farm was different from raising them in a city, where the father was in businesses. On the farms, both the father and mother were present to control and mold the family. This they did with equal authority. It was a busy farm, but a happy farm they were most generous hosts when relatives and friends visited the MARRIED Deep religious instructions were always top priority. As could be seen from their children, the Faith was deeply implanting Died Anna Died Augustus 5, 1971 in Ness City, age 85 years.
2. The John and Anna Margaret Schumacher Family
John Schumacher was born in Munjor, NOVEMBER 6, 1883. His parents were Anton Schumacher and Pauline (Ruder). John's father moved to Victoria, and had a General Merchandise store there in Victoria. He seemed to do well. John showed great interest in the business, so his father sent him to Salina, Kansas, to attend a business school there, so as to be able to run the affairs of the store. John married Anna Margaret Stoecklein on NOVEMBER, 22, 1904 in Victoria, KS. Business must have been good, because John’s father opened another store in Ellis, KS which John was destined to manage. This he did with great energy and dedication. John was business and Anna Margaret took care of the family. The two first children, of the five were born in Victoria.
Those who vested at the Schumacher home were always met with a family that was enthusiastic and the welcome was warm and cordial. It was a real tragedy when John contacted a serious illness, and before toad long, died, living the mother the chore of raising the five children.
Anna Margaret, or "Ammagrate" as she was usually called, was the mother of this small and unfulfilled family. She was born in Munjor, KS, FEBRUARY 21, 1886. She was, as were many of the girls of the Stoecklein family, very calm, and quiet, but a very good mother. When her husband John died, she immediately inherited a bundle of responsibility. There were now five children, the last girl, Lietta, being born only three months after her father's death. How to finance a family of five children was a real problem the grandmother, Mrs. Pauline Schumacher was a fair Godmother to this family. She took care of the furnishing of the clothing of the children and also many other sundry needs of the children. Added to that, Anna Margaret inherited 320 acres of land out near Ogalla, Kansas, from her grandfather Schumacher. This helped to keep body and soul together.
Additional income was on hand through Anna Margaret's daily work as seamstress, which she built up into a business, but which was conducted from her home. She did not live far from the church, so when the priests needed someone who could cook for them, Anna Margaret was always glad to oblige. The priests paid MAY even social calls on her to encourage her in her big task. The children were in all agreement about their mother's character: She was extremely kind and never had an enemy. She was most generous with her help and work. She died at the age of 87 years, after a completed full life.

Adam Rohleder MARRIED to Eva Maria, migrated to Gross-Winternheim in 1670. Nowhere does it say where they came from He was a master tailor. He belonged to the Catholic parish. He was a respected man and elected major of the city.

Philip Rohleder
Son of Adam was born in 1673.

Johann Theodore Rohleder
Son of Philip was born in 1708 and died in 1793, at age 85 in OberIngelheim

Peter Rohleder
Born in 1732 died in 1779 at age 47 in Ober-Ingelheim

Dr. Hellriegel told me to write to Scwabenheim, Germany where he felt records would show those who in 1765 migrated from Germany.

Peter Rohleder married Catherine Niederquell. (Both lived in Russia) approx. 1800. The Niederquells were of the Lutheran faith. It is note-worthy that Niderquell is found today in Mainz, Germany near the village where the Rholeders live.

Anton Rohleder married Barbara Meier. (Both lived and died in Russia). Anton died JANUARY. 13, 1903 and Barbara died AUGUST. 24, 1907.

Nicholas Rohleder married Clementina Geier; 2 Mary Herman. The name was also spelled Herrmann, and Herman.

Nicholas was born MARCH 25, 1861 in Graf, Russia and died APRIL 14, 1939 in Victoria, Kansas.

His 1st wife Clementina was born in Graf, Russia and died in North Brothers Island, New York in Mar of 1892. Nicholas had 2 children from this wife: Mary born in 1888 and Peter or Pete in 1890.

Nicholas Rohleder and Clemintina and the 2 children left Graf, Russia for America in the early part of 1892. They boarded the S.S. Gelelrt in Hamburg, Germany and after a long trip landed in New York Mar 14, 1892. When they arrived Clemintina was sick with a contagious disease. She died shortly thereafter and in buried in North Brothers Island, New York.

Nicholas then came west with the 2 small children to Victoria, KS early in 1892. His aunt Catherine (Rohleder) Dreiling helped with the children. One can imagine the grief, the heartache as Nicholas left his young wife behind in a cemetery in New York and the train trip with the two small children must have seemed like an eternity until he reached Victoria, KS. He was a typical German man, stoic, religious and great faith. This is what sustained his difficult time.

On JANUARY. 16, 1893, Nicholas married Mary Herman, a single girl and daughter of Anton Herman and Elizabeth Dreiling. He was 32 years old and Mary was 20 years old Mary had a fairly good background She was the great-granddaughter of Barbara Goetz and John Dreiling III-2 fine families in the history of our people. Mary and Nicolas had 12 children together. Along with the 2 children from his 1st wife, they raised 14 children.

Nicolas and Mary lived on a far northwest of Emmer Married He purchased land from the railroaded they attended church in Emmer an, Kansas. At one time there was a church, school, and grocery store along with a number of small houses in the community. Nicolas and Mary owned one of these houses which were used on Sunday's but was an un-occupied during the remainder of the week.

Nicholas and Mary retired in 1924 and moved to Victoria, KS where they lived across from the cathedral of the Plains. Mary died MAY 9, 1931 in Victoria and Nicholas died APRIL 14, 1939.

A brief history taken from the Brungardt Genealogy, Volume I, by Helen Hall, tells us that a widow Brungardt, her two sons and a daughter migratted from Germany to Russia in 1767-68. They were of the Luthern Faith. The widow and one son settled in Herzog, Russia and accepted the Catholic Faith.

Here the assumption is made that Adam Brungardt, gradson to the widow Brungardt was born in 1780. He married Katharina Dreiling. Thanks to Helen L. Hall for her research many years ago, we can accept Adam and Katharina Brungardt as our ancestral grandparents.

Adam married Katharina Dreiling. He was born in 1780 in Russia and married in Russia. Katharina Dreiling was born in Russia also. They both died in Russia.

Children
Franz Brungardt married Anna Maria Riedel
Magdalena Brungardt married Peter Sander
John George Brungardt married Margaret Rome
Bathasar Brungardt married Margaret Schmamme
Katharina Brungardt married John Kuhn I
Elizabeth Brungardt married Christopher Wassinger
John Brungardt married Anna Appelhans

Only two of the above seven children of Adam and Katharina Brungardt came to America. They were Franz, married to Anna Maria Riedel, and Magdalena married to Peter Sander. However, all of the descendants of the above seven children came to America unless stated otherwise.

According to the Brungardt Genealogy Volume I the "Brungardts" left Herzog, Russia enroute to America on June 22, 1876, arrived in New York aboard the |North German Lloyd Line "Morsel". After going through customs at port of entry they were allowed to board a train enroute to western Kansas. They arrive in Ellis County on August 3, 1876.

I will begin my genealogy with the fourth child of Adam and Katharina Brungardt because of the direct bloodline. Therefore the following families will be direct descendants of Balthazar and Margaret Brungardt.

ADAM BRUNGARDT AND KATHARINA DREILING
BALTHASAR BRUNGARDT MARRIED MARGARET SCHMAME. THEY WERE BORN IN RUSSIA AND DIED THERE.

Andrew Linenberger our (Grandfather), Born 4-19-1858 in Herzog, Russia. He married Margaret Brungardt in 1877, (1877-1858) age 19.

When Andrew and Margaret came to America they homesteaded tow and 1/2 miles north of Victoria until 1893. In 1896 Andrew purchased land near Emmeram, Kansas.

On December 2, 1900, Margaret died. Thirteen boys were born to Andrew & Margaret Five sons died before they reached adulthood.

Andrew then married Barbara Quint, a widow with nine children, five girls and four boys.

From 1877 when Andrew married Margaret till 1900 when Margaret died. They had undertaken to come to America from Russia. Had lost five children, gave 8 children a home. Andrew was left widowed and had their youngest boy (Vince) burned to death. After those hardships Andrew undertook fatherhood for Barbara Quints 9 children.

I think we all know Victor remembers Grandpa Andrew Linenberger, filed for, or went bankrupt. But I don't know any details. So here I will tell what I was told by Frank Gilchrist, he is our cousin Bill Linenberger's step-son.

Anyway, Al I suppose your fingers still tingle. You remember when we were out plowing with the old Dodge, northwest of the house and it quit on us. You were doing the driving and I was to run the plow probably just ride along I reckon. Anyway it quit and just wouldn't start. You knew enough to know it had to have fire to start. So you told me to turn the crank while you held the plug wire to see if it had fire. Well fine you took the plug wire off and I turned the crank and it shocked you. And brother you grabbed me and you beat me, man you pretty near beat me to pulp because it shocked you. When we got done fighting the motor had cooled off enough so it started again. I don't remember how much plowing we done, but that is how it worked that time. I remember we used it several times.

You Al remember the time me and you were picking corn for Earl Nutter up there by Steel City and Earl Nutter and that other guy I don't know his name. But they were telling about their horses, runaways really I guess it was and this other guy told about his team he had. They could run fast enough that the chain tugs, he was using would float in mid air straight back.

Well Al I don't think you got Pat and Daze to run that fast.

Then I always windup not windup but I have to bring it to an end. Because by now I have laughed and balled myself half to death. And life must go on.

You remember the time when you took our pigs to Fairbury to the sale. I imagine Dad told us to sell'im, anyway you took them to the sale. Boy I was all set to see what it was going to be like to have a pocket full of money that was going to be a thrill. But anyway that evening you told me well Omer I spent your half of the money to buy a ring for Josephine. And I remember I thought to myself, now that's a hell-of-a-note. I bought the ring and it's your girl. And you assured me you would pay me on your next payday. And you did I knew you would.

Al if you ever hear this (God Bless you) for the hundreds and hundreds of times that the thoughts of yours and my growing up days helped me through some lonely days. I suppose every widow or widower has their own way of doing it. But Al this has been such a wonderful thing to think back on and outside of exercising my lungs, it helped me lots and lots of times in keeping me from going crazy. I know it's just a bunch of foolishness. But I have no family but you guys, I don't know how else to say it and Al you are in the thoughts.

Al do you suppose our folks ever in their lifetime believed me and you that we didn't set that lousy fire over Southwest about a mile or whatever. But that is one time we didn't even attempt to lie to the folks did we. Because we just absolutely didn't start that fire that's all there is to it; isn't it.

Al am I right I often think about it, I guess it's just idle thoughts. But I got a feeling that's how you learned about Santa Claus, when we lived by Collyer and Dad sent you out to close the henhouse, granary or whatever and you stumbled over the toys on the step by the door. Santa Claus had left the toys there according to Dad. That's all I can remember about it. I do remember that you were the one Dad picked to go outside to do whatever you were to do.

I often wondered in my lifetime not having a family of my own just how children learn. Whether it's a natural thing for them to learn on their own. That it’s all just a make believe. Because for myself I remember when we lived by Grinnell, one Christmas Eve, mom sent me upstairs to change cloths before Santa Claus came. And she sent Isabel up with me and in reality Isabel was supposed to explain Santa Claus to me. And she did, she made a believer out of me I guess. Because I remember the next morning as Dad, Victor, you Al, me and Isabel were going out to milk. I can just plainly see Dad out there with mile pails hanging in his arm and getting himself a chew of tobacco out of his tobacco sack. If I remember right he smoked and chewed (Advertiser). But anyway he made sure he walked right next to me. Now whether he had asked if Isabel told me I don't know. And I spoke up and said Dad you've been lying to me and Dad said oh how come. And I said here I found out or Isabel explained (Santa Claus) to me last night. Brother I no more than had that said and boy he slapped me alongside the head. When I think about that I pretty near always, after I have my spell of balling or something whatever I do anything to pass my time. Of course then when I come to my senses, I am blessed by liking to write letters and read. So I am sure that's part of Bridget's training me for being left alone. Because she lost her mother when she was just a little girl and from then on she was pretty much the house mother. I am sure no one in the world could have done more for me to get me ready for this than Bridget did.

But I can recall when I was teaching Agnes to drive, I say I because it was me. She would agree. Anyway this one morning we were coming home from church in that 1948 Ford I had and Agnes was driving it was a new car, but she had driven all my car's before and she missed the drive like I did out there by (Orion) and run in the ditch and put a tiny little dent in the fender. And Agnes cried and wasn't ever going to drive again she couldn't eat that noon; she knew that I would be mad at her. I often think about them things it passes time.

When I think about Bridget driving after we came to Salina. She drove quite a little out on the farm. She never drove to town but she would drive to the neighbors. And in Salina she drove pretty often coming home from church or if we were out in the country, lots of times she could only drive a block or less she was that sick. And she would always stop and put the car in low gear before starting up our drive. That was real smart, but this one time she drove in and put the transmission from low to reverse without stopping and it damaged the gears. And Bridget swore she would never drive again and she never did. And it probably was a blessing.

All I have to say to you Brother Al if you happen to be the one to get this tape after I am gone. And you don't like what's on here please throw it away because then you will do me a favor then. Otherwise I hope you also get a laugh out of it too. Maybe you think about those things too. I know it's just a bunch of foolishness. But it has sure done a lot of good for my time after I was a widower.

Al you remember the time me and you were coming home from Morrowville with your Model T Ford, at least I think you owned it. Boy we were going down the road lickity split, happy as a lark and a rod flew out through the block and brother we came to a screeching halt better then any brake could have done.

I remember a few of Bridget's memories. Bridget and Brother John were papering their kitchen. John was hanging the paper and he walked off the bench. Bridget's family had a cousin that lived 1/2 mile from them; this cousin had a bull that he couldn't keep at home. One day Bridget's three brothers caught this (bull) in their barn. They got the bull down, tied his head down and started to drill a hole in his nose with a brace and wood bits. When this cousin walked in, he said hold everything. Let me do that, I want the fun drilling that hole. Bridget got a pleasure out of telling about her grandmother (being blind) would hold and carry Bridget upside down and try to feed or change Bridget.


December 3-1992

The reason for me writing the following is to have on paper, just in case (they) whoever they are come and ask me again whether I would share what I done to help pass my time after I was left a widower.

On December 9-1992 after the 6:30 mass as we came out of the church, I was asked by a lady to meet her at Hardies café for coffee. We did have coffee. Two other people were also asked to be there. But only me and the lady were there. The lady asked whether I would tell her what if anyone thing I done besides praying. I see you do about every morning. I told her after balling, walking, reading and whatever. But my thoughts of my growing up days always brought on a laugh for me. She said oh wouldn't that be wonderful. I wish the other two were here.

I told her Bridget and I used to write down some of our growing up memories.

On Tape #1A history Side A

After Bridget passed away I decided to put my part on tape and threw all our memories away. And that lady said again Oh I wish the other two were here. Then she asked if I would share that tape with others. I agreed to. She left for Texas that week.

Bridget and my married life according to my memory

In June 1951 I met my wife Bridget. We had written to each other as early as April 1951. We knew each other only from June till we got married September 24-1951, in the Catholic Church in St. Peter, Kansas. We spent our honeymoon in Wakeeny, Kansas in the hotel. From 12:30 a.m. till 8:45 a.m. September 25-1951. After Bridget was dressed that morning, she said Omer, I think if you don't mind, I should go back home and do Dad and Johns washing and clean house for them. Do you mind? I told her no if that is what she wants. So that's what we done. Her Dad was a widower. Dad and her brother John they were going to batch, till whenever. We went back home. Bridget washed, cleaned house done some cooking and changed all the bedding. I helped Bridget. We had planned on taking a week long trip. I had time off my job. I worked and lived in Washington, Kansas at the time. After Bridget done the cleaning etc at her home, we went back to Washington. We lived and worked there. In about Jan. 1952, Bridget's dad got sick; they put him in the hospital in Salina, Kansas. He lived 31/2 miles West and 3 North of St. Peter, Kansas. That is where Bridget was born. St. Peter is located about half way between Collyer, KS and Morland, Ks. Dad was in the Salina hospital a long time. Then when he was well, John got sick and developed rhumatic fever; he was put in the hospital and stayed in Salina a long time. We would drive out to visit her Dad a lot and came to Salina to visit John often. Bridget told me Omer I see the writing on the wall. Worse is coming for me and you. Soon after that John asked us to give up our job and house (we had bought a house) in Washington. John asked us to move back out home live with Dad & John and do their farming. He knew and said there isn't a house big enough on earth for 2 families to live in. We took John home; he was in a hospital bed a long time. In 1953 John got well enough that he said I have to try to do my own farming again. Do you mind if I pay you off. We were with Dad and John 11 months. So we went back to our house in Washington. I again worked for Car & Tractor dealers. I got ahead of my story the night before we got married, we were asked by the Parish Priest to come to St. Peter for a little instruction. He first asked us both in; he talked to us about married life in general. The good, bad etc. then he called Bridget in alone. Then he asked me in alone. He said Omer I don't want to hurt you, nor discourage you. But I want to know Bridget is sick. I know her condition, you can back out yet tonight if you want to, and there is nothing wrong with that. I know Bridget is sick. But I am too, I said. I have a bad stomach; there are a lot of things I can't eat. Fr. said has Bridget told you. Sure she has, and I told her. Then I said Father I would rather do it this way. If I can make a home for Bridget isn't she entitle to that as much as anyone else. He said of course she is Omer, as long as you know there will be obstructions. And when I told Bridget about my stomach, she said Omer don't worry about that, cause I had to cook special for my dad for 10 years. Father asked Bridget to come back in. And told us if you can't have children, make real sure Bridget you are able to be a good adopted mother before you try to adopt. This Priest was a brother to Bridget's sister’s husband. After John got well, we moved back to Washington. In July 1956 a cousin to Bridget died of a heart attack. His wife asked us to rent that farm, which we did. In November 1956 we moved on that farm 2 miles from Bridget's home place. During our time in Washington from 1953 thru 1956, two parish priests talked to us about adoption, which we had tried but didn't qualify. One Priest understood, the other priest told us do you want a baby, we thought we did but didn't qualify. Father John said no just give me a little time. After a while he came and told me and Bridget, I can't get you a baby there are lots of babies but you don't qualify he said. Bridget spoke up and said well isn't that what we tried to tell you.

About 3 weeks or so after we moved out on the farm we rented. I had to take Bridget to Wakeeney Kansas, 30 miles away. That is where we were going to Doctor. The doctor examined Bridget. Then he explained how sick Bridget's heart was. He asked whether she knew. She knew. Then the doctor gave us a heck of a scolding for bringing Bridget out of a town. Not because he thought we shouldn't try farming. But surely in town we would have indoor plumbing and cloths dryer if we could. And surely a doctor would be pretty close. He knew we lived 30 miles from Wakeeney. In fact the man who owned the farm was a patient of this Doctor. We doctored with him going every 3 weeks, then every 2 weeks, then once and twice a week and several times twice a day till May 1960, the medicine kept getting stronger. Doc kept telling Bridget you have to give in to heart surgery. No way was all Bridget would say. During early spring in 1960, Doc kept saying Bridget me and you aren’t getting along there’s no use of you coming back. But he would schedule appointments. We kept coming for help. This Doctor had scheduled me for hemorrhoid surgery the next Monday after he seen Bridget that time. Doc told us has John bring you in Omer, and stop at my office before going to the hospital. We did as Doc told us. I walked in and Doc said John bring you. I said he sure did. Then Doc said is Bridget here, no I said, she stayed home because I am scheduled for surgery. Good Doc said I hoped she would stay home. Because Bridget has only about 2 months left if she doesn’t give in to heart surgery. And Omer you can live with your trouble the rest of you life. You had them a long time, haven’t you? I did since I was 10-12 years old. The Doctor then said Omer a Doctor Brungardt in Salina, Kansas, that has lived with a heart condition like Bridget has. I am going to call him and ask him to accept Bridget, to check her. He phone Dr. Brungardt, I heard him talk. He then turned to me and said Bridget has an appointment this Thursday, We came to Dr. Brungardt. Bridget got on the examining table. Soon Dr. Brungardt said (Bridget) Dr. Bise at Wakeeney is right, you have to have heart surgery if you want to live. But I think if you are only a few minutes away from a doctor you may have a chance. You will have an appointment here 3 weeks from now. And then your address must be Salina, Kansas, I mean in town. If you want to be my patient. But come back before 3 weeks if you need to. With that we decided on the way home to have a sale, let it be known why. In hopes we could have a sale and move to Salina in 3 weeks. May 19-1960 we had our sale, May 20. Bridget was to see Dr. Brungardt. On our way to Salina we decided to buy a house if we could with our means. Bridget said buy if we can, let’s not rent. Then if I die soon like we were told then just walk off Omer and don’t pay anymore. Dr. Brungardt had told us (Bridget) you have about 3 weeks left is all, if you don’t give in to heart surgery. On May 20 1960 we bought our house we lived in the rest of Bridget's life. On May 20th we went home and on may 26-1960 we moved to Salina. We got to our house a little after 4 p.m. between then and midnight I called Dr. Brungardt twice for help. He told me what to do. But bring Bridget in by 8 o’clock the next morning, which we done. From then on for about a year Bridget went to doctor Brungardt 3 times a week, lots of times once and twice a day. It did get better for Bridget, and then she went every 2 weeks till Dr. Brungardt died in 1962. His wife asked us to go to another Dr Here in Salina. This Dr. had us come in every 2 weeks some times sooner from 1962 till 1968 when Bridget was sent to the KU Med Center in Kansas City, KS knowing they would do heart surgery. They replaced her aorta valve that time June 1968. In 1970 Bridget had her gallbladder removed in 1980 Bridget was sent to St. Lukes Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri to have another heart surgery, the mistral valve was replaced. The aorta valve was a plastic valve ball in a cage; the mistral valve was a metal baffle type on a hinge. In 1986 Bridget was to have another valve replaced at St. Lukes. But the Doctors decided that would do more harm than good, so she was sent home to die. From May 1960 till April 27-1990 when Bridget and I (Omer) was asked by 2 priest, 2 Drs. and several nurses to pray Bridget can die, not that she will die for that is wrong. For the 1968 valve our insurance paid $41,000.00. People donated 26 pints of blood, for Bridget and for the 1980 valve the same insurance paid $141,000.00, we didn’t know how much blood was donated. I retired in 1984 from the Postal Service at the age of 62½ years.


The following is repeat Tape #1A some how

(Omer) remembering life this way

on Tape #2A, Side B

I am Omer the 5th child of the 13. I was born on Feb. 6-1922, on a farm northeast of Hays, Kansas about 20 miles. I don’t remember anything about my birthplace. Our folks moved from there to a farm, about 8 miles Southeast of Collyer, Kansas when I was 3 years old. On this place I remember the poor house, and our Dad bringing a tree trunk home to put across the barn that had been dug in a bank. I think the tree trunk was about 40 foot long. The tree was used as the main roof support. I remember mom getting her new sewing machine and Dad trading their Model T Ford car for a used Chevy car I think in 1928. I remember our mail box was about 2 miles from our house. I started school; it was a little over 2 miles from our house. On this place I remember (my growing up days began) accidents, fights, serious playing, eating poison milkweed, play farming and fear,

For details listen to tape number 1 and 2

I remember moving from this farm to a farm southwest of Grinnell, Kansas, there our mailbox and school, both were about ½ mile from our house. I remember the teacher there gave me a good spanking. That was my second spanking; the teacher at Collyer also laid the ruler on me. Both times it was because I cried my eyes out, for no reason. On this place I learned how to skin (cats the animal) and haul feed.

For details listen to tape number 1 and 2.

I remember moving from this farm to a farm 20 miles southeast of Oakley Kansas or 3 miles west and 2 miles south of (Orion, Kansas our address). While we lived on this farm I helped or learned cow or cattle herding. Driving the cow herd, 2 miles morning and evening 6 and 7 days a week, 2 summers. I learned how to get home after the buggy wheel brakes down, how to use a buggy for fun. I remember the folks built all the buildings on this farm. It had no buildings or well when the folks bought it. Our mailbox was 2¼ miles from the house. Our schoolhouse was 2½ miles from the house. On this farm we planted 4 crops of wheat and 3 plantings of corn and never got enough rain to sport the kernels. The drought and dust storms caused mom and dad to lose this farm. From there I remember moving to a farm 1 mile east ¼ mile north of Enosdale, Kansas or 6 miles south 1 mile east of Morrowville, Kansas. Our mailbox was ¼ mile from this house; our schoolhouse was 1½ miles from this house. I finished my schooling (8th grade) in that school. On this farm I remember me nursing a mule colt back to life. I remember also plowing with a 1926 Dodge car on this farm I had my last fight or beating.

For details listen to tape number 1 and 2.

From this farm I remember moving to a farm 2 miles West and 8½ miles north of Morrowville, Kansas. On this farm I learned how it feels to be told after my brother and I sold our pigs. Well Omer I spent you half of the money to buy a ring.

For details listen to tape number 1 and 2.

From this farm I went to the Army. While I was in the Army, only 5 months. Dad and Mom moved to a farm 2½ miles south of Washington, Kansas. On this farm I remember (me) saving a litter of 7 pigs. The mother died soon after giving birth. I took a pie tin with milk in it and somehow I got all 7 to drink out of the pie tin. They all 7 grew up. From this farm I went on my own working for other farmers, then car and tractor dealers in Washington till after me and Bridget got married at the age of 29½ both the same age. In the St. Peters, Kansas Catholic Church. I remember in 1937 I was glad to go to my last day of my school classes. I remember the local draft board classified me 4F twice, and then I asked the draft board to please put me in 1A. Then in Nov. 1942 I was drafted and inducted in the Army 104 Infantry. In April of 1943 I was medically discharged. I remember my major sickness in my life (71 years to date) besides a belly ache all my life. In 1934 appendicitis surgery, 1935 dust pneumonia, 1937 Dr. Bitzer sent me to K.U. Med Center for my stomach trouble, double hernia and vasectomy surgery to correct my hernia and testicle swelling, prostrate surgery, lower back surgery and left rotator cuff surgery and hemorrhoid surgery.

I being too young to have many responsibilities I have no right to explain the 1930’s dust storms or the 1930’s depression. I do remember the dust storms, I wore a cloth over my nose and mouth after I had dust pneumonia, and I do remember the complete crop failures 4 or 5 years.

Our, the 13 brothers & sisters parent hardships can be heard on Tape

number 0, or what our mother wrote. In what Norman Moore wrote in 1977, or a book called (making do and doing without, Kansas in the Great Depression)

on page 3B I will go in detail on what I know about the move.


This is on side B, Tape #2A

I do remember the move from the farm 3 miles west and 2 miles south of Orion, Kansas, to the farm 1 miles East of Enosdale, Kansas in 1936. Dad had taken the farm machinery all apart. The 28 foot semi truck was sent out from Belleville, Kansas by August Nutsch. In that truck dad put the household items (what all I don’t remember) the farm machinery, 4 cows, 1 or 2 calves, 5 horses, 2 pigs, 1 dog, 2 cats and 12 chickens. Brother Elmer and I 9Omer) got in with the driver and took off. Dad, mom, Irene, Edna, Haddie, Jack, Agnes, Phillip and Betty took off in a 1929 Chevy car with a 2 wheel trailer hooked on. We with the truck went 1 mile east of Enosdale there we should have turned north to get to the place the folds had rented. But we turned south and went ½ miles to a vacant place, there we unloaded the truck. The driver then took me and Elmer about 15 miles north to August Nutsch, we got there a little after midnight, the next morning me, Elmer, Richard and August Nutsch went to check on our goods. We didn’t find it where it was to be. So we looked for and found it a mile South. So we moved our belongings to the place it belonged. Our parents came three days after that. I think it was 284 miles from Orion to Enosdale. I remember our parents never (ever) had indoor plumbing, never had electricity till 1945 or 1946. Cow chips (dry cow manure) were their fuel for cooking and heating till 1936. The first telephone we had was 1940 or 1941. Our parents bought their first radio in 1937 or 1938, powered by 1, 6 volt battery. When I say our folks never had electricity or running water I mean before the folks moved into town. There of course they had it.

This is on Tape #2 A Side B

Tape # 01 and side A

A few thoughts about the cattle herding that I played a part in. In the fore part of the 1930’s dad acquired the right to graze our cattle on ground 2 miles from where we lived. I think it was on 640 acres we could graze. Our folks had 110 of cattle. My brother Albinus and I would drive the herd 2 miles to graze in the morning. We would leave home anytime after sunup; we had 1 pony or saddle horse and 1 light weight work horse. We didn’t have any saddle, we rode bare back. We stayed with the herd till around mid afternoon, and then we drove them home. After a while another brother Elmer joined us two. From then on two of us rode the same horse. I don’t remember us boys taking a lunch with us. We may have water we took along, or go to a close neighbor for water.

I started working for farmers in the summer of 1937 for $2.50 a week and room and board. I worked full time for farmers starting in 1939. In 1941 I learned to pick corn. I had picked corn before. But in 1941 I hired out to pick corn for 4¢ a bushel. I hired out to Joe Weber and the first thing Joe said when I came to his place. He said I am going to go with you this first morning and show you how to pick so you can make good wages. And I did learn and had no problem picking up to 100 bushels a day and unloaded it by shoveling it in the corn crib. From then on I picked up to about 5000 bushels each fall. Then I would stop picking per bushel and goes work for farmers by the month doing all kinds of farm work. I recall one guy hired me to pick corn. I had told him his wagon wheels are not good enough. He was a John Deere dealer. The second day about 4:00 I had a full wagon piled high but it would hold the rest of the 2 rows which is what you picked as you went. The one rear wheel broke down, as it went down it also broke the wagon box apart.

In November of 1942 I went to the Army 104th Infantry. I was in the Army only 5 months. I spent over 2 months of that time in the hospital. I was sick before, during, after and still have the same bad stomach. April 1943 I was discharged with a medical discharge. (In May 1943 I went to work for Uncle Tony Kinderknecht at Parks, Kansas. There we hauled 43 loads of sand to build their new house. After we shoveled the sand on Uncle Tony's 1931 Ford 1½ ton truck we took it 8 miles to shovel the sand off, we made 2 trips a day. I done the farming when Uncle Tony wasn’t able he was sick a lot at harvest Aunt Susan and I done the harvesting. Uncle Tony was out in the truck to watch and haul the wheat to town when he was able. When the wheat had to be shoveled in the bin, then I done that and Aunt Susan would go to the house till I was unloaded. After harvest we moved Uncle Tony and family into an old Butcher shop building setting in their yard, and we tore down their old house the house our Grandparents build. Uncle Tony got well enough to help tear down some and do some of his farming. When he wasn’t able then I done most of the farming at night because I was to help tear down the house for time reasons. So the new house could be started. Since the butcher shop building was too small for all of us to sleep in. Uncle Tony and family slept in that place and I had the truck or barn to sleep in which is how it should be. Only 2 times I can remember I had any unwelcome guest. Both times I slept in the barn, when I woke up in the morning there was a rat sitting on my stomach. Neither time did the rat bite me? The new basement was dug and poured. We mixed the cement with an old type mixer the mixture was for each batch 40 shovels of sand and 10 shovels of Portland cement. The mixture was poured in a wheel-barrow, and then the loaded wheelbarrow was pushed to the proper spot and dumped into the basement form. Digging the basement Uncle Tony and I done alone using 4 horses, a walking plow, spades, 1 fresseno. For tearing the old house down and running the cement, neighbors, Uncle Alex, 2 of his boys and the carpenter our Uncle Andrew Linenberger were there. I think in September 1943 I came back to Washington to pick corn. When I left Uncle Tony his new house was just the basement, it was done, but on hold.

In March or April 1944 I went back out to Uncle Tony to do his farming when he was not able and during the daytime I helped build the house to finish. Uncle Tony was in the Quinter, KS hospital and laid up about 2 months.

In 1944 while the new house was being build. Myself a nephew to Uncle Tony and a nephew to Aunt Susan worked there. The big difference I could see was from 8 to 5 the carpenter and the other nephew was part of the crew. But at 5:00 the other nephew and Uncle Andrew Linenberger went to town to live. I helped do chores before 8:00 a.m., helped do chores and or done the farming after 5:00 p.m. and I got $60.00 a month plus room and board. The other nephew got $60.00 a month and dinner only. After the house was done, Uncle Tony and I set into digging 2 cesspools. One was 6 feet across and 31 feet deep and 1 on the other side of the house was 7 foot across 27 feet deep, plus 5-8 inch post holes beyond the 27 feet. I myself dug every inch of both. We put a tripod over the hole with an attached pulley and a rope tied to a 15 gallon barrel and attached the rope to a single tree so 1 horse hitched to it, would pull the barrel of dirt up to be dumped. Uncle Tony was able to handle the horse and at times he could dump the barrel other times other help handled that part. When the cesspools were done, we set out to dig the water line trench from the house to the well a little over 200 feet, for that we used a walking plow, 2 horses and long handled shovels. Uncle Tony was able to help some on that otherwise, I done it alone. After the fall work was pretty well done, I come back to Washington to pick corn in the fall of 1944. After that I started to work in town and farmers.

In 1945 I started to work for car and tractor dealer. In 1945 or 1946 I bought the acreage that brother Victor and Katie lived on and they bought the acreage from me. In 1944 I slept in the basement instead of the barn or the truck. Uncle Tony, Alex and Felix Kinderknecht, helped each other in 1943 and 1944, so when Alex or Felix needed extra help, I was sent to help them. Which is how it should be? Uncle Tony had a 3 day limit for me to help the other two.

I do believe one of my most treasured thoughts I have of my single life is, knowing I gave 50¢ out of every dollar I earned to my parents, after I was out on my own till four years before I got married. Before that I like my sisters and brothers gave all our money earned to Dad and Mom.

The water line trench was 36 inches deep. I think I had to make it about 18 inches wide so I could dig and shovel out the ground.

Getting the sand for the new house

Uncle Tony and I took his farm tractor, his 1½ ton 1931 Ford truck and a 6 foot freeseno, about 8 miles north to the Saline River to the sand bar. Uncle Tony drove the tractor hitched to the freeseno out on the sand bar to drag the sand out on the grass, put on windrows. I handled the freeseno by controlling the handle loaded and followed behind to the place where, by controlling the fresseno handle the sand was dumped on windrows. After a few days we would have enough sand windrows for several days of hauling. We would park the truck beside the windrow. Then shovel the sand up on the truck bed. Go home and shovel the sand off for latter use. We hauled enough sand on three piles so the whole house could be and was built.

After the room partitions or studs were in the house we nailed lath to the ceiling joist and wall studs. (Lath) are narrow strips of lumber 4 ft long to be nailed with 1 nail for each ceiling joists, which were 16 or 24 inches apart, and to each partition studding. The Lath nails were number 5 made for lath. Buted or treated so they wouldn’t rust. The lath were spaced, the thickness of a lath apart the lath were 5/16 inch thick. That left an open slit between laths to let the plaster cement mixture to cling to, on the back side the cement would form a little roll like. The lath was used before sheetrock or drywall was used to enclose the inner walls or ceiling joists.

The plaster cement was prepared by screening the sand I think we used number 16 screen. For each batch we shoveled in 30 shovels of sand, 10 shovels of plaster cement, 3 shovels nun slacked lime and enough water. It was put in a mixing box ours was 24” wide, 6 ft long, 6 inches deep. It was mixed with a mortar hoe, which was a large hoe with a hole in the hoe on each side of the handle. The cement was mixed, then shoveled in a pail and carried in the house, dumped on a table. The man doing the plastering would take this cement to apply it to the lath with a plastering trowel. Putting on enough pressure so the cement mixture would go through the slits in between the lath and smooth it as you plastered. The thickness of the plaster or (mixture) plus the lath was to be ¾ inch, the lath 5/16”, the plaster 3/8”. When this layer was dry then a 1/16 in finish coat, cement, water, and sand that had been through or over a screen I think number 24 screen. For the basement walls and floor, the sand we hauled was used as it came. Then for laying up the brick the sand was shoveled over a number 10 screen, I think #10. The brick mortar was 20 shovels of sand, 5 shovels of mortar cement and water that was mixed in a mortar box 2 ft wide, 6 ft long, 6 inches deep, then shoveled in a pail and taken to the brick layer. Myself and Aunt Susan’s nephew took turns mixing the cement and carrying it and carrying the brick, and doing the jointing which is using a round iron to smooth out the cement between each two brick or joint. I do not remember the number of sacks of mortar cement we mixed each day. I do remember Uncle Andrew laid up to 1500 brick per day. And I remember when the house was

PREFACE
TO THE
LINENBERGER GENEALOGY
The purpose in establishing a record of the Linenberger family is to revive the history of our forebears who migrated from Germany to Russia and thence to America.
This compilation of historical material includes: Dates of births, marriages, and deaths of the older members together with a genealogical record of all generations from 1765 to the present time. In addition, some mention is made of their spiritual, financial, and educational advancements.
This compilation has been carried on for nearly four years, during which the authors have extended every effort to collect data and material to make accurate record possible.
In the pursuance of this research, a great deal of time, work, and money was spent in order to gather the required information. To contact the numerous families, there was a constant stream of correspondence and telephone calls. Also, in connection with this work, there were frequent trips to libraries, rectories, and cemeteries. Extensive research regarding the family line was being done in Germany; while also work was being done in exchange for information with the genealogical library at Salt Lake City, Utah.
It is the sincere wish of the authors that this book, which has been written in memory of the persistent struggle and hardships of our ancestors, will find a place in every home of the Linenberger descendants; and that they regard it with esteem to their predecessors.
The purpose of the Linenberger Genealogy is to establish a record for posterity. To the author's knowledge, there was only new Linenberger family which migrated from Germany to Russia during the period 1766-68. It was the family of Joseph Linenberger, which located in Mariental, on the east side of the Volga River.
Joseph was a carpenter and contractor by trade. But the Linenbergers, like the Germans who settled in the Volga region, were poor, and, to help make a living, established a Kavak (tavern). They also raised sheep and swine.
The Linenbergers had only one child, Hanjoerg. At the age of none years, while herding sheep and swine, Hanjoerg was take prisoner during one of the raids by Kirghiz from the East. After living with them for eleven years, he escaped and returned to the home of his parents at Mariental.
Hanjoerg marred Margaret Fisher. At the time of his marriage, he was about thirty years old. Five children were born to Hanjoerg and Margaret--two sons and three daughters. Only descendants of the two sons came to America. The authors were unable to secure a record of the three daughters.
Hanjoerg's oldest son, Melchoir, married twice. His first marriage was to Katherine (Kattel) and Maria Eva. There was a record of the marriages of these three children, but only descendants of Johannes came to America. One daughter of Johannes Linenberger and Maria Younger, Anna, came to America and married John Knoll.
Melchoir married a second time--this time to Katherine Margaret Klipphahn Schreiner von Riedel Salzman. It was her fourth marriage. To Melchoir and Katharine Margaret, six children were born. Five of these and their families came to America. Katharine (a daughter) married Nickolaus Schmamme and remained in Russia. However, Katherine's son, Gottfried, came to America with his family.
Katharine Margaet, before her union with Melchoir Linenberger, had married and had lost, through death, three husbands. The first of these was Peter Schreiner. She had only one son by him. His name was Joseph. Joseph was married three times. There is a record of the marriages, but only Andreas, the son of Joseph Schreiner and Maria Schnell (his second marriage), came to America. The other descendants remained in Russia.
Katharine Margaret Klipphahn Schreiner then married Mathaeus von Riedel. It was the second marriage for both. They had one son, Johannes. Two of Johannes Riedel and Anna Richmeier's children and families and descendants of two others came to America.
Katharine Margaret Klipphahn Schreiner von Reidel next married Johannes Salzman. One child lived to marry Johannes Goetz. Three children of Johannes Goetz and Margaret Salzman and descendants of a fourth one came to America.
John Michael Linenberger, second son of Hanjoerg, also married and had three sons. There is no record of daughters of this marriage, but Peter, a son of John Michael, married Margaret Legleiter and came to America with their son, John Michael. Later another son, Alex, was born in America.
The first Linenbergers who came to America were the fourth and fifth generation descendants of the Joseph Linenberger who came to America, some going into the eighth and ninth generations.
The Linenbergers in America had correspondence with their relatives in Russia for many years, but, unfortunately, the connection was broken and the tracing of the family line in Russia was made impossible on account of the Red Russian revolution after World War I, the destruction of churches and records, the repatriation of the Germans from the Volga region to Asiatic Russia during the siege of Stalin grad in World War II, and the Iron Curtain since the war.
The authors were fortunate in being able to get most of the dates and the history from the time of the migration to Russia up to and including the migration to America. It was more difficult to obtain dates for later generations, and for that reason space has been provided in this book where each family may keep its own record.
It is the sincere hope of the authors that family pride will prompt each Linenberger descendant to expand this genealogy, and to keep a complete record of succeeding generations. And, who knows, but some future Linenberger will see fit to establish Linenberger archives to house the complete tree and other records to this tribe of stalwarts whose past reflects sacrifice, ability and stamina worthy of emulation by anyone who bears this honored family name.

Character study on Christof & Helen Stoecklein
The thoughts and recollections of them come to us through their youngest dAUGUSThter, who at this writing was still living in Hays, Kansas. She is Catherine Zimmerman (Stoecklein). Both her parents, Christof and Helen came over to America on the same steam boat "SUEVIA" which landed in New York on AUGUSTust 3, 1876. With the help of guides and contacts there, they traveled westward, until they eventually landed in Victoria, KS. With this famous father, Peter Stoecklein, who was one of the five scouts to America from Russia before this trip took place, Christof and the Peter Stoecklein family finally moved to Munjor, Kansas.
Christof was 17 years old at the time they came to America. There were six children living, as they landed and Christof was the third oldest living, but the fourth oldest born, since the oldest dAUGUSThter Anna died on the voyage, and had to be buried at sea.
The first job was to find work, and to. raise money. Christof and his three brothers go some work on the United Pacific Rail4roaDIED His father, Peter Stoecklein, obtained a Homestead certificate # 991 in Wakeny, Kansas on AUGUSTust 1, 1883. He got 80 acres of land, seven miles south of Hays, KS. CHristof also got a Homestead Certificate #2854, adjacent to his fathers land, on AUGUSTust 7, 1888. He married Helena Herklotz on JANUARYuary 26, 1880, in Munjor, Kansas. With the Homestead Certificate,, he obtained 180 acres of land right adjacent to his father, Peter Stoecklein. He farmed this land, as well as some plots of land near by, until his son Alexander went into the army for World War I. He then moved to Munjor, where he had a small home, and lived in their small Munjor home for the remainder of his life. He was always very quiet and never got overly exciteDIED He bore his burden of poverty graciously and his family honored him for it. He had cancer, and was sick quite a number of years. He died DECEMBER. 2, 1936, at the age of 76 years. He was married 56 years and reared their nine children.
She was commonly called by the endearing name of "Lehnya". Her parents were Gottfried Herklotz and Mary Catherine Boos. When the people were making ready to leave Russia for America, Helena desperately wants to come along to America with her brother Carl Anton. Carl gave his parents a solemn promise, that he personally would take care of "Little Lehnya." So, with that assurance, she came along. According to church records, she was born in "Paninskojje", or Schoenchen Russia, on MARCH 2, 1859. She came on the same boat as Christof. When Helena's group went Westward, they first land in Leibenthal, and from there to Schoenchen, KS.
Helena was by nature a kind girl and one who always helped others. She was happiest when she could do someone a favor. This story tells something about her spirit of congeniality. "She spent most of her life on her feet." This happened on the earliest times in Ellis County, The family needed jobs and money desperately. Her brother Carl told her that there were jobs in Salina, Kansas. "How do were eget there?" Henea askeDIED "we walk there" was the answer. So they set our toward Salina, Kansas via the railroad tracks. When they finally got there, Helena's legs and feet were terribly sore and swollen. They took off their shoes but they couldn't get them back on again. So, Helena sat around the track, while her brother went to look for jobs. Luckily, after some time, he did return, with jobs for both of the MARRIED So they worked in Salina for a time.
Christof anDIED Helen was married in Munjor and started their life of their own. This started a long fifty six years of married life for them on the farm, which was situated seven miles south of Hays, KS. Here she spent many years with busy hands and busy feet. She always had a nice garden on that farMARRIEDIED She grew many vegetables. One time she had an exceptionally large watermelon. She took this melon and toted it on foot, to Hays and sold it. With the money she brought back several shirts for Christof and his younger brother and a few other little things. She was very tired, but when she was the happy faces on the men who got the shirts, she forgot her pains and was just as happy as they wren. It was harder to tell who was happier, the recipient or the giver.
Schooling was not open to all the children. The younger ones got to go, but not so the older ones, since they were needed on the far MARRIED After they moved down to Munjor, he did practically no work. His health was failing. It was common sight to see him on the porch, rocking himself and smoking his pipe, while she kept rising around and in and out of the house. He finally died of cancer, and following this, she would stay with the children of her family, spending some time with all of the MARRIED She spent most of her years in Hays, where she died at the age of 92 years. All in Hays neighborhood where she stayed, knew her and loved her. She never wore a hat in her life. She always wore dark clothes and a kerchief over her head called a "Babushka." After she died, the people missed that familiar figure, dressed in dark, walking to church, with the quick rapid steps.

The John and Anna Margaret Schumacher Family
John Schumacher was born in Munjor, NOVEMBER ember 6, 1883. His parents were Anton Schumacher and Pauline (Ruder). John's father moved to Victoria, and had a General Merchandise store there in Victoria. He seemed to do well. John showed great interest in the business, so his father sent him to Salina, Kansas, to attend a business school there, so as to be able to run the affairs of the store. John married Anna Margaret Stoecklein on NOVEMBER, 22, 1904 in Victoria, KS. Business must have been good, because John’s father opened another store in Ellis, KS which John was destined to manage. This he did with great energy and dedication. John was business and Anna Margaret took care of the family. The two first children, of the five were born in Victoria.
Those who visited at the Schumacher home, were always met with a family that was enthusiastic and the welcome was warm and cordial. It was a real tragedy when John contacted a serious illness, and before told long, died, leaving the mother the chore of raising the five children.
Anna Margaret, or "Immigrate" as she was usually called, was the mother of this small and unfulfilled family. She was born in Munjor, KS, FEBRUARYruary 21, 1886. She was, as were many of the girls of the Stoecklein family, very calm, and quiet, but a very good mother. When her husband John died, she immediately inherited a bundle of responsibility. There were now five children, the last girl, Lietta, being born only three months after her father's death. How to finance a family of five children, was a real problem The grandmother, Mrs. Pauline Schumacher was a fair Godmother to this family. She took care of the furnishing of the clothing of the children and also many other sundry needs of the children. Added to that, Anna Margaret inherited 320 acres of land out near Ogalla, Kansas, from her grandfather Schumacher. This helped to keep body and soul together.
Additional income was on hand through Anna Margaret's daily work as seamstress, which she built up into a business, but which was conducted from her home. She did not live far from the church, so when the priests needed someone who could cook for them, Anna Margaret was always glad to oblige. The priests paid MAY even social calls on her to encourage her in her big task. The children wren in all agreement about their mother's character: She was extremely kind and never had an enemy. She was most generous with her help and work. She died at the age of 87 years, after a completed full life.

Bridget has been a resident of the St. Peter area her entire life.
She married Seraphine Brungardton MAy 3, 1938 at St. Anthoy's Catholic CHurch; St. Peter, Kansas. They have six children: Phyllis Martin, Rosalita Geci, Sarah herman, Frank, Theresa Staab and Dennis. Bridget and Seraphine would be married for over 56 years. Seraphine died March 24, 1988.

Having volunteered to present a genealogical record of the families of BALTHASAR BRUNGARDT and MARGARET nee SCHAMME BRUNGARDT for the 1985 Brungardt family reunion, I have spent many hours this past year corresponding and getting aquainted with family members. My husband Eugene J. Riedel is the direct descendant of the Brungardts, and since I am the writer in our family, I took it upon myself to compile this genealogy.

Some of my ancestral information was aquired from the GOLDEN JUBILEE OF GERMAN RUSSIAN SETTLEMENTS OF ELLIS AND RUSH COUNTIES OF KANSAS, 1926; THE VOLGA GERMAN HERITAGE OF KANSAS By Richard Keller for some of the superstitious listed; and the BRUNGARDT GENEALOGY by Helen L. Hall, church records, which I have found are not always correct; and last but not least, all the little tidbits remebered from grandparents growing up. Without these sources of information, this genealogy would not be possible.

To all the fine people who were so gacious to retun the family charts, for sending snapshots, and making telephone calls, I give my heartfelt thanks. Without you, I could not have completed this book.

To my husband Gene, who has been so patient during the many hours of silence while I sat at the typewriter inmy endeavor to complete this book on time, thank you for your patience.

Some of the families' records are not complete, simply becasue I could not locate them, or because I lacked information, or I did not receive any acknowledgement of my letters. It is with regret that I have to omit these families.

I wish to add at this point that if someone in the family wishes to explore the family history further, free access to my material will be granted so that our heritage MAY live on for future generations.

If errors have been entered, forgive me, they were not intentional. Good luck and I hope you enoy reading the book as much as I have enjoyed working on it.

Much research has been doen by members of the Brungardt family. Many aspects have been reached, some conclusive, however, as to the exact region in Germany where the Brungardts originateDIED Prospectity and spiritual unity was shattered in europe during the sixteenth century, when Martin Luther, a Greman Priest, launched a protest against the Pope and Holy Roman Empire. Luther's protestant movement gained him thousands of followers.

As a result of the movement, the terrible religious war, caused by Habsburg Emperors to suppress protestantism in Bohemia (now known as Czechoslovakia) and Germany, lasted for thirty years. The many years of constant wasr left Germany so devastated, that when Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia, offered what seemed to be a life of ease and plenty of land, the German people made great efforts to emigrate.

Our ancestors left their homeland with thousands of others in 1765 to trek across a vast domain, thousands of miles, with only bare necessities and much faith and endurance. Many perished on the way due to old age, illness, and exhaustion.

It is believed that the Brungardts were followers of Martin Luther since they were of the Luthern faith. However, upon reaching the steppes of Russia, our ancestoral grandparents made their home in the village of Herzog onm the Meadow-side of the Volga River, and converted to the Catholic faith.

German Cooking

One of the desirable still very much in existence are the delicious recipies used in the kitchens of our ancestral homemakers. It is unknown how far in the past that some of these recipies have been useDIED

Meat was not always available for the simple reason that it could not be kept very long without spoilage. The homemaker could prepare a meal without meat and it would be fit for a KING. All she needed were the basics of mil;k, cream, eggs, flour, sugar, potatoes, and onions.

Animals, mostly hogs, were butchered in early spring, the meat was fried down and put in large crocks or containers, covered with hot lard, and stored in the cellar or cave. Those who were fortunate to have an ice house could keep meat into the latter part of the summer. Thus wa the case of the John MARRIED Brungardt family. Pork put up in the fall of the year was salted down and kepty in a large wooden barrel. It sat outside on the north side of the house where the sun could not reach it, and was covered well with a heavy object to keep animals from getting inside.

Head cheese (Liverwurst) made from the head of the hog, when cooked, was trimmed and the meat ground with liver and heart and stuffed into cleaned entails. This was a delicacy, warmed, and eaten for breakfast.

Chickens were raised by the hundreds in the summer months from setting hens. When the egges were hatched, the little chickens were taken from the hen and the hen set on another batch of eggs. It took four weeks to hatch one batch of eggs. As many as twelve hens were setting on a batch of usually twelve eggs for each hen. Therefore, chicken was eaten often in the late summer months.

Noodles were made every few days. We still use many of the noodle favorites today, such as noodle soup made from either chicken stock or beef, noodles and beans, needle and bean soup seasoned with sour cream, and Kase nedle baked int he oven. These are only a few of the noodle dishes. No doubt, there were many more.

On busy days, another favorite and quick meal was the knebble and kartoffel (dumplings and potatoes), or schmarra made of flour, salt, water and eggs, then frieDIED The schmarra was made without potatoes.

Rivel soup, green nean soup, sauerkraut soup, bean soup. These are only a few of the sous that were always a treat and were eaten at lest once every day.

The delisious baked breads were baked at least every other day. Many varieties of mouth-watering breads came from the ovensof our ancestral homemakers. There were the kuchen and maldasch made with berries, such as the swartzberren brought from their homeland in Russia. The swartzberry, a small black berry, used in pies, kutchen, and maldasch as a desert, and are also cooked with knebble and kartoffel as a main meal.

The cellar was stored with vegetables, both canned and dried for winter use--potatoes and onions being on the top of the list. Then ther were the carrots, which could be buried in the ground or in a container filled with sanDIED Flour, sugar and salt were purchased in towen and usually in fifty and hundred pound bags.

Then in the fall of the year came the trip tp town to purchase cabbage to make sauerkraut. It was shredded with a kraut cutter and put into a large stone crock, usually a twenty-gallon size. After the cabbage had fermented to the desirable taste, it was packed into jars and sealeDIED Many a table was set with delicious sauerkraut soup, cooked with fresh pork. eas homemaker had her own special way of preparing a dish that carried down to the next genration.

Friday was always a ameatless day, because of the religious tradition. Therefore, the dishes of noodles and beans were always a favorite. Sometimes knebble and kartoffel were served for the noon meal. Since the noodles were made of mostly eggs, the protein content was high enough that meat was not necessary. The list of favorite main dishes goes on and on, but I have mentioned the most common ones, and don't they make your mouth water?

Quilts wre made in the same manner as the comforter, only the materials used were light cotton with a light weight cotton batting between and then stitched by hand to make a pleasing design.
