Dedicated to:

To the memory of the people who came before us and formed the land and the roots of this
family. For the ones who are living now, who are carrying this family on. For the ones too
small, for whom the future is for.




Acknowledgments:

Howard Kraay and Florence (Kraay) High both had started working gathering names dates and
family history. Many other family members have contributed to the list. I, Erwin Engert, have
put this information together in this form to share will all members..
                                                                                                       3
The following pages are about the two brothers who married two sisters, their family trees are
on pages 26 - 38 They started the tradition of an annual family reunion currently held in
Logansport, Indiana the 4th Sunday of July. This encouraged family members to get together at
least once a year.
         The purpose of this book is to connect as many of their descendants to each other. The
first two family trees are part of the family trees of both parents of the two brothers. Each tree
starts with a married couple and lists each of their children, and in turn each of their marriages
and children and so on.
         The tree structure is based on an outline format: I. A. 1. a. i., each level is a new
generation and each child is in order of birth. After each descendant comes - date of birth - date
of death the following line is for the date of marriage the next line is the spouse's name - date of
birth - date of death.

The following example should help.

                             James Strait & Flora Ann Allman
         James Strait, son of Henry and Mary Strait, was born in Shawnee, Ohio on May 10, 1842. He was reared
on his fathers farm, by Christian parents, and at an early age united with the Methodist Church.
         At the age of twenty, he enlisted in the 90th Ohio company "H" Volunteer Infantry serving his country
faithfully under General Thomas from August 1862 until he received his honorable discharge at the close of the
war in June 1865.
         Corporal Strait was engaged in twenty one major battles in which he received no wounds, but suffered
severe illness, due to hardships and rigors of war. With never a leave of absence from his regiment from the
time of enlistment until the war was ended, so had an enviable record of loyalty and valor. Let it be said in
passing that as a Christian, Mr. Strait did not believe in war or warfare, but as a Citizen, he believed it his
patriotic duty to serve his country this way.
         In the spring of 1866 he came to Lexington, Missouri, where he engaged in farming until 1871, when he
returned to Bates County where he had previously visited and had met Mrs. Flora (Allman) Heness. Here they
married on February 2, 1871 and began house keeping on a farm purchased by them, and located 13 miles west
of Butler, Missouri. This was the home from which their eleven children were born and over a period of thirty
eight years, he was a tiller of the same farm. Flora Ann Heness had a daugther Mary Alice Heness who died in
Nov. 8, 1878 at the age of eleven.
         In 1907, Mr. and Mrs. Strait retired from active farming to a small place at the edge of Amoret, Missouri
where they had spent their remaining years. Abut this time he became a member of the United Presbyterian
Church, in which capacity he remained a loyal supporter.
         He passed form this life at the age of ninety one years three months and twenty eight days, at 3 AM on
Friday, September 8, 1933 and is survived by his widow and nine children, as follows: Ross, Anna, James, and
Ethel of Kansas City Missouri. Drusilla of Monticello Indiana, Robert of Ranchester, Wyoming, Clay of
Danforth Illinois, Earl of Moberly, Missouri, and Bessie of the home.
         A kind and thoughtful husband, a just and righteous father a devout Christian a worthy citizen has gone
to his reward.
                                                                                                                  2
              William John Kraay & Amarenthia Jeske Sterrenberg
         William J. Kraay was born in Holland on May 12, 1852. He was the oldest of seven children; William,
John, Richard, Art, Annie, Jane, and Carrie Kraai. The name was originally spelled Kraai in Holland. After
their father died, their mother came with her 7 children to America by boat. William being the eldest and while
the youngest was only an infant in arms when they arrived here in the early spring of 1869. They settled in a
Dutch community near Grand Rapids, Michigan, where they became gardeners, teachers and minsters. William
received his naturalization papers in October 1876. William J. Kraay died May 3, 1934 at the age of 81 years in
his daughters home of Lena Kraay Vandervliet in Danforth, Illinois from complications after falling and breaking
his hip in 1933.
         Amarenthia Jeske Sterrenberg was born in Germany in 1851, came to the United States of America
during young womanhood. Jeske Sterrenberg married William J. Kraay on November 1873 in Danforth, Illinois.
 William and Jeske had four children who were: Lena (Kraay) Vandervliet born on September 27, 1874 and died
on December 15, 1948; Arthur W. Kraay born on April 20, 1876 and died on November 18, 1952; Emma
(Kraay) Koster born on August 23, 1880 died on March 18, 1974; and John J. Kraay born on July 13, 1882 died
on June 28, 1928. Jeske died in Kankakee, Illinois November 1, 1927 from the result of a fall at the age 76 years
on November 1, 1927. William J. Kraay, Jeske Kraay, John J. Kraay, and grandson John S. Kraay are buried in
a family lot in the cemetery just east of Danforth, Illinois. All their names are on one stone on the South East
side of the cemetery, see map at end of book. Note: Arthur W. Kraay and John J. Kraay being blood brothers
married blood sisters Drusilla Strait and Anna Strait, Arthur W. to Drusilla and John J. to Anna.

        Here is another account from Russ Kraay. My Grandfather Jan Johannes Kraay wrote a personal history
in 1941 it is not complete and may not be entirely accurate. It has bits and pieces going back to 1771 to the birth
of his grandmother.
        We arrived in New York Sept. 13, 1867. Our destination was Pella, Iowa. In Chicago father wanted to
stop and visit Domince Koopman who lived in South Holland. Soon after we moved into the parsonage of the
Dutch Reform Church in South Holland. The following Spring father bought a plot of ground (10 acres) on
which we moved, and lived there five years. After that we went to Danforth, Illinois.
        Another place he mentions knowing his father for 20 years and his mother for 60 years. Since he was 11
when they came to America this would indicate that Aart Kraay came to America at the age of 61. Great
Grandmother was born in 1822, she would have been 45.

      This account comes from Robert and Betty Jo Kraay. We know that Art and Trentje were in Illinois in
1870 with their children. We know that Trentje married Jacob Vanden Bosch some place in Illinois verse
Michigan, and lived in Michigan.


                             Arthur W. Kraay & Drusilla Strait
        Arthur W. Kraay, first son of William J. and Jeske Kraay, was born on the farm near Danforth, Illinois.
He lived in that area until February 1897, when he came with his father, William, sister Emma and brother John
to Amoret, Missouri where they lived on a farm 1/2 mile east of Amoret. He attended the same church as
Drusilla Strait where they first met, later courted, and found true love. Arthur Kraay married Drusilla Strait on
November 21, 1900, they were married at the home of the bride by Reverend L. W. Williamson. The witnesses
were Emma Kraay younger sister of the groom, and Flora Strait the sister of the bride. She was the daughter of
James and Flora Strait who lived 1 mile west of Amoret, Missouri, which is near the Kansas line. His sister
Emma was Maid of honor. They started housekeeping on a farm in Wolf, Missouri where they lived 3 years, and
where their 2 oldest children were born. John was born on December 13, 1901 and Robert was born on June 10,
                                                                                                                 3
1903.
         Other posiable spellings for Kraay are Kraai and Kraaij. From the spelling of Kraaij could have come
Kraay, someone may have thought that the Y had two dots above it. Stanley Kraay fould this spelling in his
reaearch on that family name and members.
.        Uncle John Kraay found an opportunity for them to rent one of Fred Snow's farms which was half way
between Ashkum and Danforth, Illinois. Arthur went by train in the early fall of 1903 to look the situation over.
  Upon returning, they discussed the opportunity and her personal views of leaving her native community. Both
decided to take advantage of this opportunity as he was considered the master earner and she was willing to
follow him wherever! In December of 1903, he moved their belongings in a train boxcar to Danforth, Illinois.
In January 1904 she came by train with their two sons John, 2 years and Robert, 7 months and they lived on this
farm until March, 1912. It was on this farm that the following were born: Ernest on February 21, 1905, James on
September 18, 1906, Florence on January 31, 1908, and Dorothy on February 2, 1912. With their 6 children they
then moved to Monticello, Indiana to a 300 acre farm owned by the same landlord, Fred Snow. It was on this
farm that Chester A. November 4, 1913 (died July 23, 1917); Edna on October 12, 1916; Harold on December
20, 1920 and at last, Howard on July 28, 1922 were born. Florence thinks they purchased their farm in 1926.
This farm was located 2 miles North of Lake Cicott, Indiana, on the west side of county road 800W at 175N 1
3/4 miles north of US 24, where they lived the rest of their lives. They moved early in the year of 1928 and
Florence quit her work in Indianapolis to come home and help mother get their house redecorated. He died
November 18, 1952. Both parents are buried in IOOF Riverview Cemetery, Monticello, Indiana with brother
Chester.
         Drusilla said of her husband "He was a good provider, a devoted husband and father. He was a good
farmer and manager. By putting our heads together, we reared our family to manhood and womanhood through
hardships and so forth. No one had to go hungry or without clothes to keep warm. With so many children, we as
a family had our share of happy times. Each child got the opportunity for the education they desired. I'm a proud
mother to say they're good citizens of our country and hope in generations to come."
         Howard's remark "we as your children are, too, very proud to be called your children and feel particularly
blessed to have been put on this earth by such wonderful parents and under the good guidance of God Loving
parents."
         Drusilla's grandfather, Asberry Strait was born in England, and came to the USA and settled in Ohio
when he was a young man, and married Miss Mary Duncan. James Asberry Strait, oldest child of Mary and
Asberry Strait was born near Shawnee Ohio, on May 10, 1842. He was reared on his father's farm, by christian
parents, and at an early age united with the Methodist Church.
         At the age of 20, he enlisted in the 90th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and fought in the Civil War. He served
his country faithfully under General Thomas from August, 1862 until he received his honorable discharge at the
close of the war in June, 1865. Corporal Strait was engaged in 21 major battles, and had one close call. His
army hat was shot off but he did not get a scratch. During the war he received no wounds, but suffered a severe
illness, due to the hardships and rigors of the Civil War. With never a leave of absence from his regiment from
the time of enlistment until the war was ended, he had an enviable record of loyalty and valor. Let it be said in
passing that as a Christian, Mr. Strait did not believe in war or warfare, but as a citizen, he believed it his
patriotic duty to serve his country this way.
         In the spring of 1866 he came to Lexington, Missouri, where he engaged in farming until 1871, when he
returned to Bates County, Missouri where he had previously visited, and had met Mrs. Flora Allman Heness.
Here they were Married on February 2, 1871, and began housekeeping on a farm purchased by them, and located
thirteen miles west of Butler, Missouri This was the home from which their eleven children were born, and over
a period of thirty eight years, he was tiller of this same farm. In 1907, Mr. and Mrs. Strait retired from active
farming to a small place at the edge of Amoret, Missouri, where they spent their remaining years. At about this
time he became a member of the United Presbyterian Church, in which capacity he remained a loyal supporter.
         James passed from this life on September 8, 1933 of dysentery, at the age of 91 years, and was survived
by his widow and nine children as follows: Ross, Anna, James, and Ethel, of Kansas City, Missouri; Drusilla of
                                                                                                               4
Monticello, Indiana, Robert of Ranchester, Wyoming; Clay of Danforth, Illinois; Earl of Moberly, Missouri; and
Bessie at home. He was preceded in death by two children: Bradford and Nellie. Bradford died as a result of an
illness he contracted during the Spanish American War. A kind and thoughtful husband, a just and righteous
father, a devout Christian and a worthy citizen had gone to his reward.
        Flora Ann Allman Heness Strait daughter of William and Terry Allman, was born near Circleville, Ohio
on September 19, 1849. William Allman was born in Virginia in 1816. His nationality was Pennsylvania Dutch,

It is now the time for the next generation to record their life and become part of the recorded family chain. The
following letters are by and about the children of Arthur and Drusilla Kraay, to let the next generations know of
what they did to add to the history of the family name.




                                          John Arthur Kraay
     John Arthur Kraay, the first child born to Arthur W. Kraay and Drusilla (Strait) Kraay, was born on
December 13, 1901 on the farm near Wolf, Missouri.
     John supervised a maintenance crew on US 24 Logansport, Indiana.
     John died in Logansport, Indiana at home.

                                        Robert Edward Kraay
       Robert Edward Kraay, the second child born to Arthur W. Kraay and Drusilla (Strait) Kraay, was born on
June 10, 1903 on the farm near Wolf, Missouri and died on July 27, 1977. He married Ida McIntosh on
December 2, 1930.
       Robert worked in the office at a grain elevator in Monticello, Indiana.

                                        Ernest Wellsby Kraay
        Ernest Wellsby Kraay, the third child born to Arthur W. Kraay and Drusilla (Strait) Kraay, was born on
February 21, 1905 near the town of Ashkum in Iroquois County, Illinois. His parents moved to White County,
Indiana, near the town of Monticello, he believes in the year of 1912 when he was six years old.
        He stayed at home on the farm until he was 21 years old in 1926 and then went to Detroit Michigan. He
got a job with Packard Motor Car Company and worked with them until January 1929, when he joined the
Marine Corps. He served in the Marine Corps with continuous active duty from January 25, 1929 until April 1,
1959, when he retired as commissioned warrant officer--Grade IV which is the highest grade a warrant officer
                                                                                                                5
can hold. During his years in the Marine Corps he traveled many places in the world and enjoyed the Marine
Corps to the fullest. He Married Mable (Teston) Holt on January 14, 1941. He was in Iceland at the outbreak of
World War II, December 8, 1941, the same day his daughter Edna was born. He left there for the South Pacific
in April 1942 where he moved from Island to Island chasing Japs until December 1944 when he returned to the
United States. In early 1946 he was stationed in Japan where he stayed and did a lot of cleaning up of ordnance
equipment and explosives the Japanese had stored, mostly under ground in tunnels, which was a hazardous job.
He supervised the blowing up of many tons of explosives with Japanese laborers as his hired hands. After
completing that mission he was transferred to Teirtsin (Nonbojing) China and stayed until his division left China
in 1947 and came back to the United States. It was in 1947 that he became a distinguished rifle shooter which
was an accomplishment he had always set as a goal for himself. From 1947 to 1959 his time was served in the
United States except for a two or three month periods of maneuvers on the Island of Vieguis one of the Puerto
Rican Islands. Their home was built and completed three months before retiring. He will stay until the end, if he
doesn't get washed away by a terrible hurricane, such as the one that hit South Carolina in 1989, which shows no
mercy when they land.

                                         James William Kraay
        I was born September 18,1906 in Iroquois County, Illinois an a farm two miles north of Danforth (or two
miles south of Ashkum), then close to 1/4 mile west on the north side of the east-west road. My father also was
born near that same location on April 20th, 1876. Back in those days, there were several unemployed people and
were spoken of as tramps who wandered around though the country by walking and riding freight cars free. I
recall of my father telling of many times finding tramps in the hay loft of the barn. One morning he went to the
barn with a lantern for light and went to get hay for the horses and sticking his hay fork into the loose hay he had
thrown down the night before, he stuck a tramp in the lag and both were very surprised.
        One incident I personally remember was folks had a very large St. Bernard dog. They had a wagon for us
kids and we four older boys had this dog hitched to the wagon and we had ridden up to the railroad tracks just
east of the house about 1/4 mile and had started back when a large crash of thunder came and scared the dog and
he took us back to the house on a fast return. The dog ran under our front porch which was about two feet off the
ground. The dash board on the wagon stopped us short of going under. The dog broke loose from the wagon
and no one got hurt! Give thanks to a strong built dash board on the wagon.
        The owner of the farm where the folks lived in 1905 was the Snow family. They told the folks that they
decided they would like to sell that farm. Also said if they could get some one interested in buying it they would
give them the first chance of renting a farm in Iowa, or one of three different farms in Indiana. The folks said
they would not consider the Iowa farm. The Snow's found someone who did buy the Illinois farm. Then my
father came to look over the three different locations in Indiana. They decided to rent a 320 acre place three
miles west and one mile south of Monticello. March of 1912 the folks came to Indiana.
        Dad and my two older brothers, John and Robert, and two neighbors drove wagons and teams of horses
through. Mom, Ernest, myself, and two of my sisters, Florence and Dorothy (a very young baby) came through
on the train. When we got to the depot in Monticello, there was a box wagon and team waiting to take us to our
new home in sub zero weather. Bill Bakes was the driver. He had put a lot of loose straw in the wagon and
blankets for us to wrap up in. That was a very long cold ride late in the evening after dark.
        This was my first year of school that fall. John and Bob always said they had to drag me to school. I
never liked school, guess that is why it was hard for me. I walked to a one room school 1 1/4 miles south of
home for my grade schooling. Winters seemed so much more severe back in those days. I can recall walking
over top of a row of hedge trees that were at least 15 to 20 feet tall going to school. That was an extreme case.
Very few times were we hauled to school or brought home by wagon or carriage. I had two years of high school
taken to and from school in a Model T Ford school bus.
        Those days most all farmers had chickens, ducks or geese, milk cows, beef herd, hogs and horses. My
first chores were watering and feeding the chickens, 50 to 60 hens and about six roosters. Then gathering of eggs
                                                                                                                    6
which were used for food and to trade in for groceries at the store or huckster wagon that brought groceries to the
country. My brother Ernest and I did the milking, and ran it through the separator which took the cream out for
richness for cooking and making butter. Made a lot of cottage cheese out of the skim milk, then the waste was
fed to the hogs. The chores grew as I got older and had to stay out of school to help get crops planted in the
spring. I plowed with five horses on a gang plow, cultivated with three horses on a 2-row cultivator.
         During 1925, 26 and 27 Dad and I were doing most of the farming ourselves on the 320 acres. In 1926
Dad got an International 10-20 tractor to plow, disc and harrow the ground. I was the operator of the tractor.
Sure put a lot of time in with it. I was paid $40 a month for helping my folks farm from 1926 through 1928.
         In 1928 I moved with my folks to a 100 acre farm one mile north of Lake Cicott that they had purchased
in the spring of 1926, and rented two years. After moving to this farm in 1928. I rented some extra ground in
the neighborhood and farmed it. Folks paid me $45 per month. May of 1928 I met a neighbor girl and started
dating her some off and on as she was going to teachers college in Muncie, Indiana. Did some other dating for a
year of so and finally decided which one I wanted. It was Mary Barr. She taught three terms, 1929-30, 1930-31,
and 1931-32. We were married on February 20, 1932, the deep year of the great depression. At that time, a
married girl was not hired, so no longer could she teach.
         In the spring of 1932, we rented a 160 acre farm (owned by an insurance company) about five miles south
and west of where we live now. We borrowed $2,000 to start up farming. At that time we purchased a nice team
of percheron mares, a walking cultivator, a walking plow, a harrow, and a few other things. We bought a sow
that raised us nine nice pigs.
         I started plowing for spring crops. Went several days around a 20 acre field. Got very discouraged
thinking I would never get done. We went up to my folks and tried to get my Dad to sell his 10-20 tractor
(which he could not run) for $800. He said "no - he wanted $1,000". I finally got it and the plow, disc, and
harrow. So the farming went real good for two years on that place. I think it was our happiest years of marriage
- no phone, radio, or electricity. We did little going because a lack of money kept us home. Saturday nights we
would go in and get a few groceries and on Sundays we seldom missed going to Sunday School and Church
which we have done all of our lives.
         The first hogs we sold in 1932 we only got $2.95 per 100 lbs. Also sold the insurance company's half of
the corn for 13 cents a bushel. We kept our share of the corn as we wanted to raise more hogs. Spring of 1933
we had five sows to farrow and raised 43 pigs. That fall when part of those were ready for market, banks were
closing around here and businesses were closing. Jack Hawkins put an ad in our daily newspaper that he would
pay $4 per 100 lbs for hogs in cash. I got in a truck and sold several head and that sure helped us on our bills we
had to pay. By 1934, things started getting a little more stable .
         Winter of 1933 and 34, Mary's folks asked us to come and farm their place, and move in with them until
they could get a new house built on the West side of the place. I said "no", because I felt the togetherness may
cause hard feeling, and I did not want any of that. Mary's father's health was not good, and they kept on insisting
we farm for them as they said Mary's brother, Robert, was not doing a good job. Robert did well with the
orchard and selling insurance - which did not help his parents farm. I gave in and we moved in with them the
last few days of February 1934. I helped haul a lot of gravel out of the pit in our pasture over to the building site.
 In August of that year, they moved into their new home. Stanley was born May 28th that year - same day as the
Dion quintuplets. So we had plenty of help caring for our new baby. Norma came on March 13, 1936 on a very
cold Friday. Jerry was born August 24, 1944. He gasped a couple times for breath but could not make it.
Elizabeth was born February 16, 1949.
         Our farming the first 20 years or so here consisted of milking 8 to 10 cows, raising pigs from 8 to 16
sows. We farmed both places, the 120 acres and my father-in-laws, until the early 40's. Husking all the corn by
hand and shoveling it into the cribs. In 1936 or 37 I was the corn husking champion in Cass Co. Then we took
on the Young farm of 80 acres in the late 40's. Guess my reputation as a farmer must have spread as I never had
to ask if we could farm a place. I was always asked by the owner if I would consider farming it. We were never
late in paying our bills. Many times bills were paid in advance of due dates.
         In the early 50's, we sold our milk herd and purchased feeder caves in the spring. We ran them on grass
                                                                                                                  7
and fed some grain, then sold in the fall. That eliminated a lot of work in the winter months. I think it was 1948
that I purchased an old Massey Harris tractor that I could work the ground and also cultivate the corn and bean
crops with. Early 50's I purchased an old two-row Case corn picker which sped up the corn harvesting. I usually
hired someone to shovel the corn off into the crib. Next came an elevator to eliminate the hired hand. Also did a
little custom picking for others. In 1949, I also started farming my folks 100 acres as my Dad's health was not
good. Farmed until my Mother passed away on June 4, 1959. In 1960 we purchased the 120 acre farm on the
East side of us that I had farmed for a few years after we moved here. Then in the year of 1972, we were told by
a widowed lady that her husband had told her a couple years before he passed away, that if anything should
happen to him, for her to go to Jim Kraay for advice. Her decision was to ask us to farm her ground which was
260 acres. We worked it for 8 years and with my age, I felt we should slow down. Then comes another man
wanting us to farm his 45 acres close by. Did his for 3 years, then gave it up. Spring of 1987 we started cash
renting to a large farmer. We do keep a good bit of pasture land for our angus beef herd. We gave our son
Stanley, 1/4 interest in the caves born since 1974 which is about all the herd now. They sure don't care for your
land like we used to.

                                    Leeona Florence Kraay
         I was the fifth child - first daughter born to Arthur W. and Drusilla Strait Kraay on January 31, 1908 in
Iroquois County Illinois between the towns of Danforth and Ashkum on a farm owned by Fred Snow of
Kankakee, Illinois. Theordor Roosvelt was president at the time.
         In reminiscing, as small children, my brother James and I were venturesome and climbed to the very top
of the windmill on the farm in Illinois and afraid to answer our mothers calls to us. She finally spied us and I'm
sure was more frightened than either of us were - "why mothers prematurely get white hair early in life."
         In 1912 the family moved to a farm (owned by the same landlord) in White County, near Monticello,
Indiana. We lived only 1¼ mile from the grade school we would attend and I was eager. All 8 grades in the one
room school called Ward.
         With the exception of bad weather we walked to and from with neighbor children and that was fun. We
carried our lunches. On frigid days our mother would send hot soup at noon or something very special that
would be warm. There were special programs - box socials, etc. that we all enjoyed as well as having our parents
there. We didn't know the word being "bored" we made our own fun and were kept busy. 8th grade graduation
was always special.
         In 1922 White County Schools were consolidated so all grades and high school students were furnished
transportation to Monticello - at that time called "school hacks." That was my freshmen year in High School -
quite an adjustment from a one room school in the country. I graduated with the class of 1926. In 1927 I
graduated from Indiana Business College in the spring. I worked for my board and room while in Logansport
and was sent to finish office training in Indianapolis. I temporarly worked for the Board of Trade. A classmate
friend and I rented a one bedroom apartment 14 blocks from where I got my first steady job with a brokerage
firm. I soon learned some persons were rich one day and broke the next. Thankfully my salary was good and
steady and with the wise and Christian upbringing of my parents, I learned to manage on my income. It was a
thrill to be able to purchase a dress or whatever with my own money. My roommate Mabel Crumbaugh and I
shared all living expenses and responsibilities that went with. Our parents helped greatly as they were concerned
that we wouldn't eat healthy. My parents brought meat and home canned fruits and vegetables. Mabels parents
owned a grocery store — so we didn't want for healthy meals. How it was appreciated!
         We would often walk the 14 blocks to and from work and spend street car fares on other needs. I think of
one time we were afraid to walk home. We had been told about this Spiritualist and both decided to attend this
Seance on Sunday evening. That was quite a different experience for each of us and enough to last a life time.
How thankful for freedom of religion!
         In the Spring of 1928 my parents moved onto the farm they had previously purchased and Mother asked
if I would consider coming home to help her as she planned to refinish a lot of the woodwork and paper and
                                                                                                                 8
paint all the rooms. How could I say no? She had done so much for me and paid me a weekly salary to add to
my savings.
         In May Mr. Snow asked if I would be interested in being bookkeeper at the Snow Bank in Sheldon,
Illinois to replace his longtime employee who took a job working at Kankakee Federal Savings and Loan in
Kankakee. He explained that I would sometimes wait on customers, answer phone calls and do posting of the
books — sometimes as a teller. Sounded interesting. The employees were the Cashier - Assistant Cashier -
Teller - all men with families and they treated me like one of their own family. The bank had no posting
machine at that time so all had to be done by hand and the end of the day the books had to balance.
         So from being a Country girl to City life in Logansport and Indianapolis back to the farm then to the
small friendly town of Sheldon. No apartments available. The ones of us three maiden school teachers and I
with no cars rented sleeping rooms and bought meal tickets at a family restaurant. I was fortunate to get a room
at the home of the owner of the restaurant. They had a 4 year old son who was a joy. They had a dear nanny for
him who was a former nurse I was treated like family (as both parents worked) both at home and in the
restaurant.
         I had been raised in the Presbyterian Church in Monticello but in Sheldon there was no Presbyterian
Church so I attended the Methodist Church there and since have become Methodist since married to my husband
Joseph High, June 16, 1929. We dated a year and all went quite well until the Great Depression. Like the rest of
the nation we had tough times. With the help and caring of all and each other we were indeed blessed.
         We were blessed with two daughters, Phyllis Lorraine born June 11, 1930 and Barbara Jean born
November 19, 1931. We have 4 Grandchildren Kathy, Kay, Warren and Cynthia Shaw. Five great
grandchildren Jeffry and Brian Engert, Jessica and Krista Shaw, and Sharin Amin Fares who are all dearly loved.

       Joe had failing health and decided he must retire from farming in 1960. He rented the farm to a nephew
and did help him some at harvest time. We remained in the farm home until August 1973 when we sold the farm
and moved to our present home where I hope to remain to the end of living on this earth if health allows.
       We had many joyous family times and trips I never dreamed of. Joe died August 20, 1985
       Dwelling on happy times and knowing we are never alone.
       Praise God!

                                       Dorothy Marie Kraay
        Dorothy Marie Kraay - Sixth Child born to Arthur W. Kraay and Drusilla (Strait) Kraay on February 2,
1912 - on a farm located between Danforth and Ashkum, Illinois in Iroquois County - into a family of ten
children.
        Our parents moved to White County near Monticello Indian on one of the Fred Snow farms, March 1912.
 Since the folks had four boys ranging in ages from 5 years to 11 years. Mr. Snow thought our Dad and his four
sons would be one of the best farmers to take care of 312 acres of land, to farm with horses and all the chores
that go with farming in those days, and our mother as chief cook, bottle washer - housekeeping - sewing and
bring a good mother and wife to the best of their abilities at the time - with no electricity and driving horse buggy
or carriage for our transportation and walking of times. They had a family Bible and a doctors book that we
learned to read and often times used home remedies for when illness presented itself. The doctor came to the
home when a new baby was born.
        I started to school at the age of five - walked 1 1/4 miles to a one room country school. After my fifth
grade the Ward School was consolidated, so we rode on the school hack to Monticello City School. During my
Junior year. The folks moved to their own 100 acre farm - 1 1/4 miles north of Lake Cicott, about 10 miles west
of Logansport. Finished my junior year at Monticello. Senior year at Burnettsville and graduated May 1929
when depression came into being. Thought Id like to take nurses training to realized I had to make my living.
So Started to doing domestic work in homes also helping to take care of sick also of children - located
Logansport and surrounding country - Kankakee, Illinois, Grand Rapids Michigan Back to Monticello worked in
                                                                                                               9
dress shop for a period Gossand Co. then to a dental assistant in Logansport. My parents afforded piano lessons
that I enjoyed for the rest of my life. Stayed at YWCA. Then when WWII in 1945. The soldiers and boys who
had been serving in armed services returned to their homes. So then I met Harold L. Lowe. He phoned me later
and asked for a date, we kept up the dating and were married May 12, 1946, and enjoyed a wonderful honey
moon trip and two week stay at Smokey Mountains Gatlinburg Tennessee. Harold was fireman on Pennsylvania
Rail Road at the time and soon promoted to engineer. Then special duty instruction for air brakes to many rail
road employees. Attended diesel schools when they first came in. We were kept busy. He didn't want me to
work away from home because his hours were so different and could hardly see each other if I would be gone.
And he could provide for both of us. Had hope of small family and did have two miscarriages and at our ages it
was dismissed. He was promoted to assistant road foeman and to located at Richmond, Indiana 1950 and 1951.
Probably 1952 we were transferred and moved to Crestline, Ohio, 1953 transferred and moved to Lansdowne,
Pennsylvania. His work and responsibility was Philadelphia Pennsylvania and the expected him to work 28
hours out of 24 hours. He did help to solve many of their labor problems. In 1955 we decided to move back to
Logansport, Indiana, in exercise his seniority as engineer. We rented a house in town a few months and then
purchased 116 acres on South River Road along the Wabash River. I Think we farmed near 60 of land. There
was a creek woods and permanent pasture land a flowing well hills and valleys an old stone house and a
wonderful garden spot. We raised some cattle, always had a german shepherd dog and enjoyed our working
together with other responsibilities. Harold died suddenly May 26, 1973. It was a difficult times and period for
me. The Lord other members of family relatives and friends have helped me over the humps and through much.
 Rejoice in the Lord.

                                           Chester A. Kraay
        Chester A. Kraay, the seventh child of Arthur and Drusilla Strait Kraay, was born on November 4, 1913
on the farm near Monticello, Indiana and died on July 23, 1917.
        As Florence Kraay High remembers, during the summer Ernest, James, and Florence were to watch
Doroth and Chester, while Arthur and his two sons John and Robert were out in the field. This was the time
when their mother was Ill. During the summer Chester ate some grapes that were still green. Eating such grapes
can cause summer complaint. The doctor came to the house, when he came in to the kitchen after checking
Chester, and told the whole family that due to the high tempeisure he would not live much longer. Florence
remembered the doctor telling them of his pending death. He was laid to rest in the wide hallway in the home. It
was a common practice to have the body viewed in the home. He is buried next to his parents in the IOOF
Riverview Cemetery in Monticello, Indiana.

                                           Edna May Kraay
        I was born on October 12, 1916, in a large white (hotel like looking) home four miles southwest of
Monticello, Indiana, on Range Line Road. I was the eighth child and the third daughter of Arthur and Drusilla
Strait Kraay, during President Woodrow Wilson's reign.
        I have been told that my mother became mentally ill when I was an infant and no one can remember just
how long she had to be away. I was taken in by Mr. and Mrs. James Christianson, good Danish neighbors. They
were elderly looking people from the picture I have but they had daughters who helped care for me. I remember
hearing my family speak of Minnie often. There were three girls and one son, I have been told.
        Since I was the third girl I was to be my dads helper. I remember having to keep the wood box filled with
kindling, going after the cows and helping to milk morning and evening and mow grass with the push mower. I
thought Harold and Howard (4 and 5 years younger) were never going to get old enough to help me.
        We had time for fun in the evenings and Sunday afternoons playing croquet, baseball, Andy Over and
watched the boys and Dad pitch horse shoes. On winter evenings we played "Rook a lot. Mother usually had a
                                                                                                                10
quilt in the frames while she listened in or Dorothy would play the piano and Dad the harmonica and the rest of
us sing along.
         Sunday found the Kraay family going to the Monticello Presbyterian Church until 1928. This is the year
our family moved from the Snow farm to our very own 100 acres two miles North of Lake Cicott. Center
Presbyterian became our "country church" home here.
         After graduating from High School at Royal Center in 1935. I worked in a Logansport home for my
room and board and borrowed $100 to graduate from Business College.
         While being employed in secretarial work, I lived at the YWCA for several years. Along came a shy
young man with a dry whit that had me laughing a lot. My mother was overjoyed with this new friend (she had
been soooo opposed to a former boyfriend because his parents were "divorced"). Robert was active in Rural
Youth Church and secretary for our County Farm Bureau with a sold background.
         I married Robert, I had $25 in my purse, a set of Heirloom silver and a nice wardrobe. He had $900 in
the bank, 30 hogs ready for market in a month and a black '39 Chevy paid for. We were married in my parents
home. Roberts sister played the piano for our wedding and sister Dorothy sang "I Love You Truly". Beautiful
baskets of dahlias from his mothers flower garden decorated our home. Relatives were the only invited guest but
later friends came out to see us off with tin cans plus other junk tied to the car as we began our honeymoon to
Lake Michigan.
         Robert remembers the minster asking someone to stop the windmill during the ceremony. I didn't notice
this squeaky sound as it was just on of those familiar noises of home.

                                          Harold Paul Kraay
        Harold Paul Kraay, the ninth child of Arthur and Drusilla Strait Kraay, was born on December 20, 1920,
on the farm near Monticello, Indiana.

                                      Howard Glenn Kraay
        I write this based on memory over the past seventy years of my life. I was born July 28, 1922 on the farm
where we lived in White County West of Monticello, Indiana. The story my mother often told me of the day of
my birth was a day which the fall harvest or thrashing was taking place on the farm which we lived. Mother's
responsibility was to prepare a noon meal for a number of participants involved in the thrashing ring. While in
the process of preparing the meal mother encountered some discomfort, she simply went upstairs with a Mrs.
Ferguson and Howard Glenn Kraay was born. I was the last and tenth child of the Arthur W. and Drusilla Kraay
family to be born.
        My earliest recollection was in 1926 when brother Harold and I were instructed to pick up the ears of
corn from the overflow being dumped from the wagons into the trough of the corn elevator. The elevator being
powered by a team of horses revolving around a gear box converting physical energy to mechanical motion
through a tumbler shaft which was bolted together near the trough where brother Harold and I were; suddenly
brother Harold screamed which frightened me when I saw his foot and leg wound around the shaft.
        A mystery that was never solved was; how Howard and Harold being only five and six years of age
managed to pull the two seated buggy from the shed into the field with a horse harness, harnessed the cow then
hitched her to the buggy and while enjoying our Sunday afternoon ride around the field. To have all our fun and
work interrupted by our elders spoiled our day!
        I can vaguely remember the old and first automobile, I understood my parents bought which was a
Studebaker touring car then came a model-T Ford four door sedan with flower vases on each side, for Sunday
often times flowers were put into those vases when going to attend church (Presbyterian) in Monticello, Indiana.
        While I was the youngest member of the family I was the first and only to attend Kindergarten (now
known as pre-school) for the beginning of my education. I too recall in those days of helping stuff mattress
                                                                                                                  11
covers with corn shucks and when they became lumpy it was time to re-stuff them. Carrying warm bricks or
stones wrapped in cloth to bed with us on cold winger nights was not uncommon. Our pillows were stuffed with
feathers and down from ducks and geese.
        In 1928 I moved with the family from Monticello to a farm 1-2 miles north of lake Cicott, Indiana which
my father purchased. I started my first grade education at Jefferson Township School which accommodated
grades 1 through 8. Brother Harold and I were in the same grade together grade 2 through grade 10 when brother
Harold dropped out and decided to become a farmer. I was especially privileged to have had a third grade
teacher by the name of Mary Barr, who at that time had a special interest in my older brother James. My home
work entailed bringing or carrying notes home to my brother, if necessary taking them into the field where-ever
he was for they were important. We were privileged not to have enjoyed in-door toilets, water, electricity or
central heat.
        My Grandfather William J. Kraay many times came to stay with us for short periods of time, often he
would give me money to purchase a small bag of Golden Grain smoking tobacco for his pipe while he always
allowed me a penny to buy a piece of candy, so I would pester him with saying, "Grandpa, don't you meed some
tobacco today?" Grandpa Kraay died May 3, 1934. Brother Robert who had a Model-A Ford Roadster at that
time drove my father with Brother Harold and I in the rumble seat to Danforth, Illinois that evening where
Grandpa made his home with his daughter (Aunt Lena and Uncle Mino Vandervliet). There was an old Dutch
custom explained to me at the time of my Grandfathers death, that the body was to be prepared for burial at the
home, then to church or often services were conducted in the home and the body was taken to the cemetery. My
Grandpa Kraay was the first corpse I had ever seen.
        Perhaps it was no different for me than it was for the elders of my family, I was given responsibilities and
expected to carry them out at a very young age. I attribute those responsibilities to having built character with
determination, patience, faith, self-confidence, respect for others as well for ones-self. All of the attributes
handed down by parents as a good example were great inspirations to work hard for what-ever we wanted.
During the year of the "Great Depression" 1929-32, I remember going to Burnettsville State Bank with my
mother, father, Brother Harold and I; we kids stayed in the car, when Mother and Dad returned to the car, our
Father was crying. I later learned they had lost most of their money through bankruptcy and all of their stock
inverted in International Harvester Corporation.
        While our water consumption at home depended upon wind energy which powered our windmill, there
were many times when there was no wind so it became necessary to either pump water by hand or use the
internal-combustion engine for we had no electricity. Often times difficulty of starting the old one cylinder
engine; which meant we either start it or pump the water by hand for all the animals, fowl and personal needs. I
often would simply crank and keep on cranking with determination to get it running, after succeeding I was
accused of knowing something of secret or just being mechanically inclined while it must have happened or was
coincidental, my secret was that I would always say, "God please help me start this engine so I don't have to
pump that water by hand", bingo! It would start every time. We had a windcharger mounted on the rooftop of
the barn that would charge up a six volt battery used for lights in the barn for during late chores in the evening or
early in the morning, it was also used with a radio inside the home for entertainment. What a relief to have
electrical lines through the community in the late 1930's. There was a huckster wagon (a sort of general store on
wheels with chicken crates carried beneath it) came to the farm regularity when mother would often exchange
poultry and eggs for essential needs of the household. When I ever felt ill of injured mother would refer to a
home remedy book called "Peoples Library" and treat us with perhaps herbs or some concoction from the kitchen
pantry to fit our needs. Of course after having gone through nine other kids in the family, it became a simple
matter to diagnosis my problems and ills except for time as medicine had advanced so much.
        Brother Harold and I were often sent to Burnettsville which was approximately five miles from the farm
with a team of horses pulling a box-wagon filled with grain and were to return with a load of corn cobs for
starting fires in the fall and winter months. We experienced a run-a-way team (Tom and Fred) leaving the
elevator, suddenly a train whistle blew which excited the team; what a well remembered ride!
        My father hired me out a few times for money or an exchange of deeds while explaining to me that I had
                                                                                                                    12
no rights to make any decisions until attaining the age of twenty-one when I would become a man. He advocated
and believed that all rewards came from hard work which I questioned whether or not it only referred to farming.
  I questioned my father's interpretation of farm work being more important than education, I fully understood his
views for often during planting, tilling, harvest time and other various needs be attended for successful farming,
we were expected to stay home and work as opposed to going to school. School schedules in rural communities
were adjusted and tailored to fit the farmer's needs such as the season, hours and curriculum. Brother Harold
dropped out of Royal Center High School after completing the tenth grade in 1938 to become a farmer. At this
juncture of my life I was experiencing conflicting problems with my father for I wanted to pursue an education
and play sports in High School which my father did not agree. For a short period of time I lived with my older
brother Jim trying to earn my keep while destine to finish High School and play sports. During a part of my
senior year in High School I lived on Market St. in Logansport working three jobs while going to school between
Walgreens's, Kroeger's grocery and the bowling alley's where we set the pins by hand. Before graduation mother
ask that I return home as my father realized that I did not want to become a farmer, so I did return home until
after graduating from Royal Center High School in 1940.
         Due to my needs of finances; a gentleman by the name of George Raub who was the president of the
Farmers and Merchant State Bank in Logansport, Indiana advised me to join the Army, then apply to the Army
Air Corps for acceptance based on my interest in aeronautical engineering. Another important factor that helped
me make the decision was the compulsory draft laws of the times, were to serve your country for a two year
period. September of 1940 I followed Mr. Raub's advice and joined the service, with success I was transferred
from the Army into the U.S. Army Air Corps. I managed to achieve high grades in all of the courses given in
aircraft structure, engines, electrical, hydraulics, instruments and propellers; with these certifications on my
service records I chose Panama for my first assignment in 1941. Shortly after arriving there we were sent to Rio
Hati where we were assigned to a sqdn. of P-26A fighter planes, our runways were grass, one two story barracks
to sleep in, a small shed for our mess hall, one hanger for major maintenance and no hospital.
         While I was destined to save money to pursue an education, my base pay was $21.00 each month, after
our laundry and other contributions were deducted we were left with $17.50. I would then go to the Base Postal
service and purchase a $15.00 money order and send home to my mother for safe keeping, which left me with
$2.50 each month to spend. After buying razor blades, tooth paste, soap, stamps and writing paper I might have
had five cents left to buy either a package of chewing gum or candy bar. I studied and memorized the manuals to
become well versed in aircraft mechanics to attain a promotion to a Private First Class Mechanic which was
based on exams offered periodically. We had to take our turns to pulling guard duty at various ammunition
storage areas generally located within a few miles of the Air Base at Rio Hati. The entire area surrounding the
airfield was eerie, natives were posted to watch over their coconut groves until harvest time- the native drums
beating up in the mountains all night long. While I was guard duty one night at one of our ammunition storage
sites approximately five miles from the base an arousing alarm of noise to which I was blind in darkness had
taken place, I, following my guard duty General Orders; (Yell Halt three times then shoot to kill); I carried out
my orders, I fired-the results. I heard this groan so I called the guard house and the officer of the Day arrived to
learn I have shot a native cow. I was called on the carpet for not having made sure of my target.
         When Pearl Harbor was bombed we were alerted and told that the Japanese were of their way to bomb
the Panama Canal. We stayed up for three days and nights without sleep getting weapons out of storage and
planes equipped with armor then transferred to France Field to protect the Panama Canal. Promotions and rank
seemed to come rapidly as our responsibilities increased, I first worked on the engineering crew doing major
maintenance and overhaul -crew chief-flight chief and as a flight engineer.
         A strange coincident took place when one of our pilots of then P-39's went down as a results of a mid-air
collision, his name was Orzolek, while not realizing then that I was to marry his cousin Frances Orzolek five
years later. One of our P-40 pilots crashed then taking off on a standby alert status as he was about airborne
another taxied onto the runway into his path, his mane was William Grosvenor Jr. (his father was the president
and editor of the National Geographic Magazine) His plane burst into flames with high octane gas and live
ammunition exploding, being near and determined after three attempts with a tarpaulin over my head enabled me
                                                                                                                  13
to drag him clear. Bill was half scalped, burned badly, scarred for life but lived to fight again with the Flying
Tigers under General Chenault in China where he became a war Ace. Bill returned to the United States with
another war Ace in 1943 to organize the Air Commando Group who were to be trained to fight on land, sea or in
the air. This group was to be made up of an all volunteer seasoned veterans. I volunteered to return to the
China-Burma-India area to fight for our rights, freedoms and to protect our great country with my comrades.
What more could one offer that their life to protect the principles for which they stand? That experience in
combat was the nearest thing to hell on earth that I could possibly imagine- I was there. I had often times
thought of my Grandfather when he spoke of the rigors of war, now was my time to have served my country. It
was a great feeling when "D" day was announced, for I had forth-one months of combat duty on my record which
put me on top of the list to be returned home. We returned home by air routed through the middle east, after
take-off my Squadron flew up along the side of us to present an aerial salute and farewell. We experienced a
near crash during a very violent thunder and electrical storm being only one hour off the coast of Florida, there
was a chaplin aboard with us and we were all praying and saying, "Oh God why now?"
        I so much wanted to get on with my life after receiving a honorable discharge. It seemed like a sudden
shock trying to get back in to a civilian life style and how to pursue a better and more constructive life. Family
and friends were helpful however I quickly realized that I was on my own. I immediately went to work upon
arriving home after my discharge for the Studebaker dealer (Elmer Wills) of Logansport, Indiana as a mechanic
which seemed so simple as compared to aircraft which I had been accustom to. It was at this dealership late one
evening when I was awaiting to meet Harold Lowe who had also served in the miliary in India where I too had
served; shortly after Harold arrived and we were getting acquainted, I noticed my sister Dorothy with friends
walk by the show room so I invited them in and introduced them to Harold Lowe. Sister Dorothy later married
Harold Lowe.
        1945 I applied to Purdue University School of Science and was excepted and attended for three
semesters. 1947 I joined up with an old Air Force buddy and his family to form a corporation, constructed a
building accordingly to the Chevrolet Division of General Motors specifications and was granted a Chevrolet
Dealership in the town of Great Barrington, Massachusetts. I took the responsibility of the service department
and customer relations. While my brother-in-law to be was learning auto mechanics under the G.I. Bill in my
department he suggested I should go out and enjoy the evening socializing with friends; so it was with his lady
friend's sister who now is my wife Frances Orzolek Kraay. We had purchased our first home in Sheffield,
Massachusetts two months before we were married for Ten-thousand dollars. We were married December 25,
1947, it was the greatest Christmas of my life! August 13 which was on a Friday 1948 son Thomas Arthur was
born, his middle name Arthur was taken after my father. September 28, 1949 son Eugene Stanley was born, his
middle name Stanley was taken after Frances's Father. Frances now had her hands full with two in diapers at the
same time while we had no throw-a-way diapers at that time. During the mean time we had moved from
Sheffield, Massachusetts to Great Barrington, Massachusetts.
        In 1948 I and my business partner purchased an old antique bi-plane that had been dis-assembled and
stored in an attic of a private hanger owned by a well known aviator, designer, barnstormer of his day, his name
Nick Parrish who had competed against Jimmy Doolittle and Eddie Rickenbacker in the old well known
Cleveland, Ohio Air Races. I rebuilt and refurbished the entire plane except for the fabric. While it had not been
airborne for twenty years I volunteered to test fly it to demonstrate my self-confidence. It was quite an
experience for the terrain past the end of the runway wasn't exactly an ideal place to have an emergency landing.
        My business normally required eighty-three hours per week, which left me with very little time other that
what was required for rest, I always felt more contented while staying busy with my head and as well with my
hands. In 1950 for my spare time enjoyment I personally made a deal with a farmer who had an old 1921 4-
cylinder 90 h.p. Chevrolet touring car where a barn had caved in on it with eleven thousand miles on the
odometer, we had agreed that I would dig it out when I returned home from a weeks vacation. Upon return I
learned my partners whom I was incorporated with went out to the farm and dug it out and laid claim to the
vehicle. Even though I felt it was very unfair I proceeded to completely rebuild the car, only occasionally to
enjoy a Sunday afternoon drive through the country of maybe a parade. This was the beginning of dissolving my
                                                                                                                14
interest in the corporation.
        I passed my commercial pilots exams in 1950 which I never used beyond personal enjoyment. 1951 I
was offered a field service representatives position with the Chevrolet division of General Motors Corporation,
during the meantime the superintendent of the Pittsfield, Massachusetts School system was encouraging me to go
for my teaching degree in education. At this juncture I decided to go for my degree based on the desire to be
near my family.
        1952 I went to work for a Cadillac and Oldsmobile dealership in Pittsfield, Massachusetts where I moved
with my family. At the end of my eight hour working day, I then would travel sixty miles to Holyoke College to
earn transferrable credits toward a degree and finally arrived back home between eleven and twelve P.M. three
nights a week until the course was completed. I took the summer off in 1952 to attend Fitchburg State Teachers
College where I earned my teaching degree while Frances supported the family; which I was forever greatful!
Upon the completion of my certification I was awarded a full time teaching position at Pittsfield High School
stating the fall semester of 1952. My first seven years of teaching I covered three subjects, Mathematics, Science
and Mechanical Drawing. 1953 The University of Massachusetts offered me an extra teaching job for evening
school classed; teaching Supervisor and Foreman training classed for industries in the area of Pittsfield,
Massachusetts and Berkshire county. Because it was mandatory for teachers to meet the Professional
Improvement standards in the Pittsfield school system I took courses from many different learning institutions,
colleges of Universities, which led me to a Masters level in education. Each year for over a twenty year period I
would have attended one of the following; Fitchburg state Teachers College, Westfield State Teachers College,
Springfield College, University of Massachusetts and or Ford, Chrysler, or General Motors Institute. 1959 I
taught Automechanics summer school.
        In 1951 I drove to Quantico, Virginia to visit brother Ernest, from there Ernest and I drove to Indiana
after learning of our father's failing health. I shall never forget our Father-Son talk which only now brother
Ernest can attest to for what ever differences we may have had toward pursuing an education and or leaving
home was clearly resolved at that time. 1952 my father died, I loved his very strong determination, his attitude
toward hard work to achieve what ever he wanted, his example as a provider. Whatever was worth starting was
worth finishing.
        1959 I lost my mother who always tried to encourage me in everything I was interested in doing and to do
it well. She always told me that I must go where-ever my lively-hood should lead me. She always gave me love
and great moral support throughout my life. She always emphasized that there was more to life than just hard
work! With that expression standing out in my mine; with the small inheritance I received from my mother and
father's estate I was able to purchase enough supplies and material to enable Frances, Thomas, Eugene and
myself to build our very own cabin on top of Mt. Washington, Massachusetts on a five acre plot of land which
we cleared and built on weekends. It was great to get away from all of your other daily and professional
responsibilities for it was forty miles from Pittsfield where we lived and worked. There on the mountain we
enjoyed each other so much without much outside interference, yet so close to Gods nature.
        1961 We built our new home on Barker Road, Pittsfield, Massachusetts with the help from two of my
fellow teachers, it was here where we lived until retirement.
        1964 I taught a course in school for the University of Massachusetts for persons interested in taking
exams to become Registry of Motor Vehicle Inspectors for the State of Massachusetts. The course covered laws,
regulations and mechanics for all types of vehicles.
        1965 Son Thomas earned his appointment to the United States Air Force Academy. 1966 Son Eugene
earned his appointment to the United States Air Force Academy. 1970 Eugene graduated from the United States
Air Force Academy where he had become All-American in soccer as well, Gene went on to earn his Wings and
brother Ernest and Art Kraay attended. Brother Ernest pinned Gene's wings on as he graduated. 1971 brother
Ernest having been a retired Commissioned Officer in the United States Marine Corps, commissioned Son
Thomas into the United States Air Force.
        1972 After having served on the Massachusetts Vocational Association Board for nine years I was
elected President of the Association.
                                                                                                                 15
        1973 I took the two summer months I had off from teaching and flew to Alaska to visit with Gene as he
had a home in Eagle River, Alaska
        1977 Frances and I purchased an eighty acre farm in Holland Patent, New York.
        1978 I was awarded "Teacher of the Year" in the State of Massachusetts. Frances retired from the New
England Telephone Company as a Chief Operator while I retired from the Pittsfield School Department. We
moved to Holland Patent, New York.
        1985 Frances and I moved to Logansport, Indiana temporarily with Sister Dorothy until we were able to
purchase a home of our liking which resulted in purchasing a home on 3000 Woodland Drive, Logansport.
        While I had enjoyed many years of woodworking as a hobby, having built a cabin, home, Grandfathers
clock, hutch, writing desk, a few pieces of furniture and picture frames it was now time to look for a new hobby.
 I become fascinated with stained glass, I built each of my Granddaughters a Granddaughters Clock of stained
glass, each of my Grandsons a replica of the Old School Clock; with each clock a story about TIME. The hobby
became so creative that it inspired me to new challenges which led me to making the emblem of our National
Security Affairs Support Association being our American Eagle in flight carrying a banner unfurled with the
World in its claws of stained glass forty eight inches by twenty two inches in size. The results were that I was
invited to Washington as an honored guest for it to be presented to the president of the Association. The piece
now is mounted in the reception room of their building in Annapolis, Maryland with my name engraved on a
gold plate attached.
        1991 I and Frances each encounter a few health problems and while distance separated us from our
children and grandchildren, Gene and Marie had purchased a large home with a parents suite had invited us to
come share with them so we moved from Logansport, Indiana to 1616 Gettysburg Ldng. St. Charles, Missouri
where we now reside in the same residence.
                                                                                                                   16
What makes a cousin

Cousins are related by a common ancestor, but are not a brother or sister. Children of brothers and sisters are
first or full cousins to each other. First cousin's closest ancestor is one set of their grandparents. The children of
first cousins, but are not a brother or sister, are second cousins, their closest ancestors is one set of their great
grandparents.

To be removed means that the two people are not first or second cousins, but rather removed by one or two
generations. Your first cousin's children are your first cousin once removed. Your first cousins's grand children
are your first cousin twice removed. Your second cousin's children are your second cousin once removed. First
find the first or second, etc. cousin then find how many generations removed you are from the other person.

The misuse of the terms first cousin once removed as being a second cousin and first cousin twice removed as a
third cousin has led to confusion.




The past is never really past; it forever remains a part of us.
