In 1878, the Henry Disque and Peter Krautwurst families came by invitation to Kansas together from Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. They traveled on the Kansas Pacific Railway (later renamed the Union Pacific in 1880) and stopped off at either Ellsworth or Wilson, Kansas. From there they made there way twenty miles south to Barton County. This is where the Jacob Good family was already living. Mrs. Annie Elizabeth Good, Mrs. Louise Krautwurst, and Mrs. Katherine Disque were sisters. They were 3 of the 5 daughters of John Theobold and Katherine (Rosche) Deibel.The Jacob Good homestead farm description was the South ½ of Section 33-16-11, Cleveland Township, six miles north of the yet to be organized city of Claflin, Kansas. Both of the families lived with the Good family until their own homes were started on land they also acquired from the Kansa Pacific Railway by land grant.The Disque homestead is 4-½miles north of the present city of Claflin and is on Section 9-17-11 of Independent township. Census records list the family as living in Independent, Barton, Kansas.Both families build small wood frame houses which were later replaced by the more sturdy native limestone houses built between 1860 and 1866. The limestone was quarried locally. The youngest daughter of Henry and Katherine, Louise, was borne as the limestone house was being built.Henry Disque, Sr. died on the farm on Decembe 9th, 1906 and Katherine then moved to a new home in the city of Claflin in 1909. She resided in the house in Claflin until her death on January 31st, 1916. Her son, Adam, took over the family farm in 1906.

In his younger days, was an excellent baseball pitcher - his was a paid position on the team in North Star, Ohio. He started farming with a team of horses and later bought Farmall tractors, etc. He had worked for Frigidaire in Dayton, Ohio, worked in construction of metal buildings for Alvin Gilbert, was a Trustee for Brown Twp, and a school bus driver for Ansonia Schools.

My father was ever so loving, gentle and caring. Very hard working for his family without complaint. After his dear wife was aflicted with Alzheimer's Disease, he assumed all duties of the home without complaint and also her care until he could no longer due to his own medical problems. He made the best orange cookies, ie "Birthday Cookies" and was very precise in sending birthday greetings to all in the family. He is dearly missed!

J. Earl, the youngest of three children, was never sure of the date of his birth but his older sister, Laura, thought it was the 27th. Court records later showed that it actually was the 24th. His father died of TB when he was 4 and his mother died when he was 13. He and his older sister Cora were taken in by his Aunt Margaret who sent him to a strict German Lutheran school. The church services were in German but the only German he ever learned was "service is over."

At 16 J. Earl quit school because he didn't like his teacher. He had had the same teacher the year before. He moved to Indianapolis with Uncle Charley who worked as a gardener for a Brush family. His sister Cora followed him to Indianapolis a few years later. She died at age 20. His sister Laura stayed on in Olney and married a John Taylor.

His obituary says that he worked for the Wege Marble & Tile Co for 30 years and was a member and former deacon of the Southport Presbyterian Church. He died at the age of 77 just two months before his wife of 53 years.

My dad used to tell me Grandma's sister (Alice) married someone who had been "gassed" during WWI and had some sort of effects from that which made him unable to keep a job. So periodically they could not pay the rent and would get evicted and move in, bringing along how ever many kids they had at the time - 4? - with Grandma et al. Dad said Grandma never refused them and always managed to feed them. He said the kids would have to sleep on the floor etc. Then Alice's husband would find another job, get an apartment, and they would move out. I was under the impression this happened several times.

118 Cal.App.2d 851 (1953)
Court of Appeals of California, First District, Division One.
July 1, 1953.

There is no conflict in the testimony, the claimed conflict being in the inferences to be drawn therefrom and in the construction of the letter. Decedent was a woman 89 years of age, growing blind, and while in good health, was not strong. She had one son, Ralph A. Beebee, who predeceased her by two days, and two grandsons, Ralph A. Beebee, Jr., the child of Ralph Sr. and his first wife, and Robert A. Beebee, a minor, the son of Ralph Sr. and his second wife, who after her divorce remarried and is Mrs. Irene Meniktos. Ralph Jr. disappeared around 1930, was never afterwards heard of by decedent, and was disinherited. Decedent had deposited with the Wells Fargo Bank and Union Trust Company, the executor and trustee under the will and codicil originally admitted to probate, a will made in 1940. On April 26, 1944, Mr. Falconer, one of the attorneys for the bank, drew a will for decedent which she executed. This will left a piano to her grandson Robert, and the rest of her furniture to her son Ralph Sr. The rest of her estate was to be converted into cash, an endowment policy for $500 on Robert's life to be purchased, and the balance used to procure a life annuity for Ralph Sr. In the event of his death, prior to the purchase of the annuity, the estate was to go to Bertha Richardson, Ralph Sr.'s wife by his first marriage, Evelyn Jacobs, a protegee, Elizabeth B. Snell, Lillian James Larson and Josephine Woolf, intimate friends. This will was deposited with the bank. From time to time the trust department sent out notices to decedent, as well as others, to look over their present wills to see if they desired to make changes. On July 3, 1947, decedent drew a codicil dated that day, which read, "I, Sarah A. Beebee, bequeath to my grandson, Ralph Augustus Beebee, $10.00." It was signed by her. This she sent Mr. Falconer in a letter in which she asked if it could be legally attached to her will, and if not what she could do to make it legal. July 7th Mr. Falconer wrote her to the effect that the proposed codicil was legal but suggested that in view of the reasons she had given in her letter for limiting her grandson Ralph Jr. to only $10, she sign a codicil which contained a "non-contest clause," form of which he enclosed. He suggested that if she could not come to his office she copy the form in her own handwriting. This she did, dated it July 8th, and sent it to be, and it was, deposited with the bank. According to Mrs. Snell, a close friend of decedent, when decedent had anything to write that was important,
[ 118 Cal.App.2d 855 ]

she would first write a draft of it, then rewrite it, sometimes making minor changes. She would keep the first draft as a copy. She also told Mrs. Snell many times, even as late as within two weeks of her death, that she would be afraid to make a will without an attorney's advice. Prior to 1950 Ralph Sr., having been divorced from his second wife, returned to live with decedent in the home which she owned. In March, 1950, Ralph Sr. was engaged in the contracting business and needed money. Decedent had given him all she could to help him, and through him, had put her property up for sale so as to get more money for him. The sale did not go through. About March 14th, Mr. Scott received the following letter (exhibit 1):

Dear Mr. Scott:
"Conditions have changed making it desirable that I revoke all former wills and codicils made by me, and wish to leave my entire estate to my son, Ralph Agustus Beebee without reservations. I am 89 years old, Helpless and growing blind. Please help me either to add a new codicil or to make a new will

Frau in Lebensgefahr Hausbrand in der Südpfalz - ein Toter

Trauriger Einsatz für die Feuerwehr in Gossersweiler-Stein (Landkreis Südliche Weinstraße): Beim Brand eines Hauses ist ein Mann in den Flammen ums Leben gekommen. Seine Ehefrau kämpft im Krankenhaus ums Überleben.

Wie die Polizei mitteilte, ist das Feuer in der Nacht zum Samstag im Erdgeschoss des Mehrfamilienhauses ausgebrochen. Der 60 Jahre alte Mann kam in den Flammen ums Leben, seine 54-jährige Frau wurde lebensgefährlich verletzt. In dem Haus waren auch noch drei teils erwachsene Kinder. Sie erlitten ebenso wie ein Sanitäter und ein Feuerwehrmann Rauchvergiftungen. Alle fünf konnten das Krankenhaus inzwischen aber wieder verlassen.

Sachverständige der Polizei suchen nach der Ursache für das Feuer. Die Polizei schätzt den Sachschaden auf mindestens 100.000 Euro.

Große Teile des Hauses sind nach den Löscharbeiten unbewohnbar.
Frau erliegt schweren Verletzungen

Zehn Tage nach einem Brand in Gossersweiler-Stein (Kreis Südliche Weinstraße) ist eine Frau an ihren Verletzungen gestorben. Sie hatte sich bei dem Versuch, ihren Ehemann zu retten eine schwere Rauchgasvergiftung zugezogen.

Blick in ein Haus in Gossersweiler nach einem Brand.

Das Feuer war im Erdgeschoss ausgebrochen.

Der 60 Jahre alte Ehemann war bei dem Feuer am 4. Januar nur noch tot geborgen worden. Er starb durch das Einatmen von Rauchgasen. Er war auf eine Gehhilfe angewiesen und hatte sich vermutlich nicht mehr selbst in Sicherheit bringen können. Seine 54-jährige Frau hatte offenbar versucht, ihn aus dem brennenden Haus zu retten.

Zudem hatten noch die drei Kinder des Paares sowie zwei Rettungskräfte Rauchgasvergiftungen erlitten. Sie konnten das Krankenhaus bald wieder verlassen.
Keine Hinweise auf Brandstiftung

Die Polizei geht davon aus, dass ein fahrlässiger Umgang mit einer Kerze oder einer Zigarette den Brand in dem Wohnhaus ausgelöst hat. Nach früheren Angaben war das Feuer im Wohnzimmer im Bereich eines Sofas ausgebrochen.

Es gebe keine Hinweise "auf eine Einwirkung durch Dritte", bekräftigte die Polizei in Landau am Donnerstag noch einmal. Der Sachschaden war auf mindestens 100.000 Euro geschätzt worden.

One of the Eureka community pioneers, who has seen this section grow from a
prairie wilderness to a region of fine farms and enterprising towns, is George
J. Hieb. In coming here with the great majority of Eureka folk, he is a native
of South Russia, having been born near Odessa on February 12, 1860. His parents
were Jacob and Clara Hieb. The family ancestors came from Wuertemburg, Germany,
in 1812, when Adam Hieb and his parents joined the tide of immigration to the
region around the Black Sea in Russia. Adam Hieb was the grandfather of the
subject of this sketch.

When political and social conditions in Russia made it an unpleasant place to
live for the freedom-loving Germans, they decided to seek new homes in America.
Among them were the Hiebs. On May 2, 1874, George Hieb, then a lad of 12,
accompanied his parents on the long journey to America. After an ocean journey
of two weeks and eleven days of travel by rail, the family arrived in Yankton,
Dakota Territory, on May 27 of that year.

A few weeks later the Hiebs settled in Hutchinson County where they made their
home for several years. Meanwhile, young George grew up, and on December 17,
1883, took unto himself a wife. She was Katharina Perman, born on December 4,
1863, the daughter of Christoph Perman, a resident of that community. To this
union was born a family of children that would have delighted President
Theodore Roosevelt, as there were no less than 16 boys and girls.

However, soon after their marriage the Hiebs decided to join the tide of
immigration to McPherson County where there was still land open to homestead,
pre-emption and tree claim entry. Accordingly, George and his young wife loaded
their movable property on a freight car on May 2, 1884, and left Menno,
traveling by rail to Frederick, via Aberdeen. Frederick was then the nearest or
most convenient railroad town to the far-flung stretches of McPherson County.
Here they loaded their wagon and started the slow trek toward their future

It was an interesting train. They had two mares, two years old, a pair of oxen,
two cows, six chickens, a wagon, and a breaking plow. Most important, they had
$40.00 in cash. They drove westward as far as Spring Creek in Campbell County.
But the young couple didn't like the land so well there and retraced their
tracks back to McPherson County where they selected their claims in Section 11,
Township 127, Range 71.

The land had been surveyed only into townships, so each family picked their
locations by guess. There were, namely ten families who came with the Hiebs and
were a part of the exploratory trip. On May 19, 1884, the Hiebs pitched camp on
the site of their new home. Their first concern was of course to provide some
sort of shelter, but it must not require too much time. Accordingly, they built
a wall of sod and leaned a few scrap boards against it at an angle. This was
their first home in McPherson County.

But an even more important worry met them the day after they arrived on the
claim. Mrs. Hieb discovered they were out of bread and the water jug was empty.
They had no stove nor oven. Necessity, the mother of invention, stood by. Young
Hieb scooped a hollow in the earth in an adjacent bank and drove a pole from
the top, which, when removed, provided an opening for a chimney. Then came the
question of fuel. The young couple hitched up trusty oxen and drove over to a
valley, which to this day known as Hieb's hay lake. There they cut the long dry
grass with a bread knife, tied it into wisps of suitable size for the
fireplace. The balance was used for a bed in the improvised house. The oven
worked admirably and Hieb recalls the bread was extra good. The slough water
was, of course, not good for drinking purposes, so they called the cow over for
a cup of milk whenever they felt in of liquid refreshment.

It was not long, however, until a well was dug and a good supply of drinking
water obtained. Day by day they worked and provided one after another the
little comforts that make life more pleasant. All of it made them very happy.

The coming of the winter made a more substantial house imperative and this was
one of the principal occupations for some time. They built not only a house but
a barn of sod, both of which had roofs of rafters and boards, covered with sod
smeared over with mud in order to make them as waterproof as possible. In order
to complete the houses a trip to Frederick was necessary, since that was the
nearest source of supply for lumber. The horses were too young to drive, so the
trip was made with the ox team and required four days -- a decided contrast to
the rapid means of travel of the present time.

Making hay was quite as imperative as providing shelter. But cutting the hay
with the bread knife might have been all right to provide fuel for baking
bread, but the oxen, the young mares and the cow would need a good supply of
fodder for the winter -- and the Hiebs had no mower -- and the precious forty
dollars must be conserved.

George Hieb had a good neighbor, however, in the person of Valentine Mettler,
and best of all, Mettler had a mower and a rake and was willing to loan them.
So the hay was made.

All work and no play is not so good, the saying goes. The Hiebs therefore took
the opportunity to make a visit to the old home at Menno while their neighbor,
Mr. Stein, took care of the cows and chickens in return for the use of the oxen
in breaking some sod on his claim. The Hiebs together with Mr. and Mrs. George
Neuharth, made the trip which required four days. While in Menno, the Hiebs
helped their parents harvest the crop and stayed for the threshing, earning a
bit of money.

This done, both the Hiebs and the Neuharths gathered up seed wheat, feed and
other necessities and loaded all of it, including their teams, in a freight
car, shipping it to Frederick. Reaching that point they unloaded and proceeded
with the teams and wagons loaded to capacity to their claims. Part of the
supplies had to be left behind and another trip was necessary to haul them to
the new homes.

On the return trip to Frederick, the pioneers gathered buffalo bones along the
trail, loading their wagons with about a ton or so. These bones were in demand
and brought them about $8.00 per ton. In November came another long trip, this
one to Aberdeen where the new settlers filed their final papers on the claims
they had taken, at the U. S. Land Office at that place.

The first crop was seeded in the spring of 1885. The yield was small and the
prices of grain low. Mr. Hieb now recalls his wheat yielded only 10 bushels per
acre and brought from 35 to 40 cents per bushel. Flax sold for 90 cents to a
dollar a bushel and yielded 8 bushels per acre, and oats only 15 bushels per
acre. The latter grain was saved for seed and feed.

The crop was harvested with a combination mower and harvester purchased in
Ipswich at a cost of about $100. This trip to Ipswich remains vivid in Mr.
Hieb's memory as it took four and a half days, the traveling being mainly at
night in order to escape the heat of the day. Oxen were unable to stand
traveling in hot weather, Mr. Hieb says. While the oxen were resting he was
busy picking buffalo bones and had accumulated about a ton when he reached the
town. These he sold for $13.00.

The new town, Eureka, did not come into being until three years after the Hiebs
settled on their claims. Soon after the first trains arrived George Hieb,
together with Jacob Hoffman, drove to the new town to get a load of lumber
each. But they were disappointed as no lumber had as yet arrived. The town was
composed of a mere half dozen buildings or so, he recalls, all situated east of
the railroad tracks on what was known as the school section. The present site
of the town had not yet been surveyed, he says.

Mr. Hieb continued his farming operations until 1927, when he retired to a
comfortable home in Eureka. At the time of his retirement he had added to his
original land holdings, owning over fourteen quarter sections, passing the task
of cultivating the tract to younger shoulders after forty-three years of active

Talking over old days with Jubilee book writers, he recalls that of the ten
families who came with himself and his wife to McPherson County, only six
persons survive, namely, Mr. and Mrs. George Neuharth, Henry Schnabel, Nick
Lechner and himself. Mrs. Hieb died in 1933. He still makes his home in Eureka,
but has spent the winter months in the milder climate of California with his
son, George, who resides at Lodi, in the Golden Gate state.

There, as snow covers the wide fields of his old farm, he perhaps dreams of the
old days, the cold, stormy winters of Dakota and the memorable blizzard of
January 12, 1888. He perhaps remembers drouths of other years and compares them
in retrospect with the most severe of all, those of 1936-36. In spite of all
hardships and privations, it may safely be guessed that his farm and the men
and women who passed through the pioneer period with him still hold an
important place in his affections.

Micheal Bollinger Family

Micheal Bollinger was born May 6, 1870, in Neudarf, Russia. Margaretta Huber was born Sept. 20, 1874 in Glucksthal, Russia. They were married on Jan. 28, 1897 in Russia.

The reason for leaving Russia was for freedom of religion. They left in 1903 with their two children, Jacob and Carrie. Freddie, their first born died in Russia at the age of four. They arrived in New York and came to Redfield by train. After spending only a couple of days in Redfield, they came to Seneca.

Here they stayed with Mrs. Bollinger's parents. That summer they worked for Mr. Rudolph Reinecke. The following year they lived near Mother Bollinger's uncle.

They worked for him in the fields. The children were left with a cousin who lived nearby. The cousin went to the Bollinger home to bake her bread. She started the fire to heat the oven. Somehow the fire got out of control, burning the home and all of the Bollinger's belongings. They were left homeless with only the clothes on their backs and three children. Friends and neighbors opened their hearts and homes to them.

Alma, Katie, Maggie, Lydia, Adolph, Jake, Rose, Carrie, Martha, Emma

Later they purchased land seven miles northeast of Tolstoy. Here they built a humble home and other necessary buildings. It was all prairie, complete with many rocks. They cleared the land of rocks and tilled the ground with a one bottom walking plow. After years of hard labor and sweat they lost their farm due to drought. They rented farms for several years. In 1918 they purchased a small farm northeast of Tolstoy. They lived here until 1937. At this time they retired and purchased a small home in Tolstoy. Their family members were: Jacob; Carrie (Maier); Katherine (Dufloth); Rose (Klein); (Holweger); Lydia (died at the age of 33); Emma (Bovee); Edward (died at the age of 14 days); Maggie (Boone); Adolph; Martha (Christiansen); and Alma ( Houghton).

They had many hardships in their life time. With faith in God and His loving care they managed to get along. Mrs. Bollinger passed away on Sept. 27 1952.

Mr. Bollinger made his home with his children for several years until he needed special nursing care. He spent 3 1/2 years of his life in a nursing home. Mr. Bollinger passed away on Feb. 24, 1965.

Betty Jean Olshaskie

Betty Jean Olshaskie of Lodi passed away in Sacramento at the age of 68 on November 29, 2005.

Mrs. Olshaskie was born in Shelbyville, Illinois on November 11, 1937 to Joseph Apple and Clara Foelsing. She married Thornton Garrett Olshaskie on December 14, 1958 in Shelbyville, Illinois. They moved to California in the late 1960?s and eventually settled in Union City, moving to Lodi in 2002. She was a case worker for the County of Alameda Social Welfare Department for 15 years before retiring in 2001.

She enjoyed gardening, cooking, shopping, traveling, and decorating. With a child-like passion she enjoyed visiting casinoís and would spend hours pulling reels on the nickel slot machines hoping for her jackpot, no matter how small. Allotting herself $20 to spend, she would somehow make it last throughout her hours of fun.

Her main passion in life was in spending time with and talking with her children and grandchildren. She spent her entire life trying to ensure their happiness and wellbeing. Her own needs and wants always took a backseat when it came to her children as she strived to always be there for them no matter the need, no matter the situation. She taught her children the true meaning of unconditional love and gifted them with the eternal feeling in their hearts of her powerful love.

Her loss will be painfullyfelt by those who loved her from the deepest depths of their heart and soul leaving a hole which can never be filled.

Mrs. Olshaskie is survived by her husband, Thornton Olshaskie of Lodi; daughters, Ricki Lynn Sullivan of Nokomis, Illinois, Kelly Jean Olshaskie, Lori Anne Olshaskie, both of Lodi, sons, Robert Allen Olshaskie of Arroyo Grande and Steven Lee Olshaskie of El Dorado Hills; 12 grandchildren, Gary Fisher, Sarah and Josh Sullivan, Erin Harris, Richard, Rhiannon and Ian Rodriquez, Ryan and Alexandra Hodge, Joshua and Holli Arrieta, Olivia Ton Olshaskie; 1great grandchild, Dayvin Fisher, sisters, Dorothy Arthur, Carol Muto; brothers, Donald, Bill, James and Richard Apple.

To the day he remembers with gratitude the Bottineau bussiness people who donated money to help pay for his first artificial limb. His first artificial limb cost $25, the last one $1004.00.

Otto never did let his artificial leg slow him down too much. He liked sports. He was especially interested in hockey, & for 15 years he was the team's manager. After high school & 15 years working for HL Wood in Wood's oil station, Otto opened his sporting goods store on 6th & Main Streets & called it Corby's Trading Post. Civic minded as well as sports minded, Otto served as president of the Bottineau Chamber of Commerce, president of the Wildlife Club, & member of the Bottineau Fire Department. Later he was president of the Lake Metigoshe Improvement Association.

In 1935, Otto married Alma Brunsell. They had 3 children: Donald, now a science teacher in Fort Collins, Colorado (married with 5 children); Larry, who lives in Tempe, Arizona, & works for the US Government; & Patricia, who lives in Arizona & is employed by a doctor.

50 Thomas H. Larscheid, Eckelshiem, Germany
Ancestral villages: Karlsruhe, Landau and Speyer (Beresan District)

I was born in Dell Rapids, South Dakota, on May 18, 1948, 100 years to the day that the first democratic German parliament met in St. Paul's Church, in Frankfurt, Germany. Some say it explains my political views and absolute commitment to Freiheit (freedom).

Although I have lived in Europe (Germany and Belgium) for 20-plus years, I still struggle with German. I have been told I speak without much of an accent but my memory does not retain much. The verbs are killers!

My father's ancestors came to America in 1842, settling in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They were Rheinlanders from a village called Neideradenau. I was the first Larscheid from America to visit this village in 1990. My paternal grandfather, Tony, moved to Mott, North Dakota, around 1911 with his brother to farm. The brother, unable to adapt to the plains, returned to Wisconsin a few years later. My grandmother, Pauline, was half-Flemish and half-German. Tony and Pauline spoke German but did not pass it on to their children.

My maternal grandfather, Bartel Braun, and grandmother, Monica Dauenhauer, are from the Beresan District, immigrating to Richardton, North Dakota, in the 1890s. They later moved to Mott. Both spoke Russian and German; my grandfather spoke Low German, my grandmother High German. It is said my great-grandfather, Markus Dauenhauer (born in Landau, Russia, August 12, 1850), did not favor the marriage. Markus Dauenhauer was a very successful farmer in Russia and America. He gave or sold, there is a dispute, the land for Assumption Abbey in Richardton.

The Great Depression forced my parents to move from North Dakota to South Dakota. I lost my entire German-Russian heritage, save for a few stories from my mother, because of this. My mother grew up speaking German, but World War I put a stop to that. They were forbidden to speak German in public, especially in school. My grandfather was very pro Kaiser and grandmother worried constantly about him getting into trouble.

I spent 12 years in a Catholic school in Dell Rapids, South Dakota, St. Mary's, graduating in 1966. I attended South Dakota State University in Brookings, receiving a BA in Speech (broadcast journalism) in 1971. After working 6 months in Pierre South Dakota, with the Department of Public Instruction as an information specialist, I entered the Army to fulfill my duty commitment.

I spent 5.5 years on active duty in Pirmasens, Germany, not knowing until after I was discharged that this was the area from where my maternal ancestors went to Russia in 1809.

Currently I am an editor-writer at the U.S. Army European headquarters in Heidelberg, Germany.

My wife, Carol-Ann (Whipple) Larscheid, also has ancestral roots in Russia. Her grandmother (Schumacher) also came from the Odessa area, but we have little information.

I'm looking forward to an exciting trip. 
Braun, Bartholomäus (I88754)
