      I SO hope to go one day. Just to stand outside of the building and to try to get a feel for what it must have looked like all those years ago. Someday. Hopes and dreams.

      So glad to meet you! And I followed you in your description of how you descend from Peter. I have been working on updating this site, and have made better use of the categories. For more stories about our family, check out the category for Fassbender and White Clover Dairy under the Blog heading. If there is something you would like to know about, I would be happy to write a post, or send you information. Thanks for commenting.

    This is Tootsie,Gary’s cousin. When I was four we were staying at Grandma and Grandpa house while our house was being remodeled. I used to accompany Uncle Butch and Marie on their dates. I would sit between them are the monies and stand between them on the front seat of the car. Butcher would walk Marie to the door for some knoodling and leave me in the car. The dog would start barking and I would start to cry and Butcher would have to leave Marie and come to comfort me. I have always just loved both of them to pieces.

      Oh my gosh! You made me laugh out loud. I can just see you with them. Do you have any pictures of you at that age? It would be fun to make an addition to the post with your story. Thanks for writing.

    1. Susan C Fassbender

      Oh my gosh! I would love to see this if you can find it. I would also love to know about this image. Our copy hung on the wall of Henry’s son’s home office for decades. Did you also know that there was a movie made of the process? I have more information about that also.

    I still feel this way. I still think, where is that? Oh! I gave it away. But when you know you also have to pack and move and store etc. you mother’s home of 40 years. It all becomes “things.” Thank you for your kind words.

    Trinity Lutheran Church is located east of Ellington/Stephensville. It was originally the German Methodist Church and is located 1 Road south of S and 1 Road west of A.

    My relatives were the Peters and Langlotz families.

    I like this blog but it is my first visit.

    Susan, I did some thinking on your question on why your Grandmother, my mother, had to have a Birth certificate in 1971. Margot had asked me why several months ago and I have been pondering this. Today I did some simple math and subtracted 1910 from l971 and came up with 61. At age sixty one she was trying to apply for medicare as you apply at least 6 months before you are eligible to receive it. I remember her worrying about it at the time, and I figures it had to be about medicare but until I did the subtraction and remembered you must apply early to get it, I could not figure out why, at that time it became important.

      Good Morning Jen,

      So glad you are enjoying the posts, I love writing them. I have to get back to the Fassbenders soon. I got caught up in a question from another cousin, and time gets away from me, but I have about finished with that particular story.

    Hi, I was the project manager of the restoration of Church of the Resurrection in 2007. We have photos of the original wall paintings, etc. If you are interested in them I can see if I can find the photos and send to you. Also, if you contact the parish office they could send you the history book that was recently put together on the churches that comprise Resurrection (St James and St Mary’s). Also, the baptismal font that is present in the church today is not the original. This font was created in 2007 with the restoration.

    1. Susan C Fassbender

      Thanks so much for your reply! Yes, I will definitely contact the parish office about the history book thank you. I would love to learn more, and I am sure that my aunts would also be very interested. I am a bit disappointed about the baptismal font, although as I stated, I didn’t want to disturb the woman praying, to stomp up front and take a picture, so didn’t get a good look at it. Do you know if the history book has an image of the font? And I would love to see some of the images of the original wall paintings. What an interesting job to be project manager for a restoration of this magnitude. As a remodeler who loves historic restoration, I find it fascinating. I do want to stop in again, and hopefully attend Mass, but in the meantime, thank you again so much for responding to my post.

    Love this idea! I recently told my sister about writing about the entrepreneurlal spirit on both our paternal and maternal lines. I have been wondering about how I could organize this information….. and today I realized I already have a tool in my Legacy Family Tree. Thanks for sharing!!

    1. Susan C Fassbender

      Thanks Christine, for me it works really well, and I just love the flexibility of Legacy to allow me to keep it all in my database. I am not organized enough to have all this information compiled elsewhere.

      Hi Aunt Margot, thanks! You are not the only one having trouble – and I can’t figure it out. Glad you are enjoying them, I really love putting the stories together. We are more than numbers in the Cook Book! 🙂

    Very cool post! It was nice “noodling” through this and other questions with you. You helped me figure out a lot of things in my family history, but also led me to new information and questions that I now need to investigate. Hmmm. Isn’t that the way it goes… the answer to one question leads to ten new questions?! I guess that’s the fun of it all, along with finding and chatting with relatives you didn’t even know were out there and also interested in the family history. Thanks for all of your help (for the research and resource tips, too)! You’re really, really good at this!!! I keep wondering if Trinity is still an active church since I can’t even find a current phone number or anything for them. Please let me know what you think after you drive over there (no hurry). More in an e-mail soon (I’ve had a ton of things on my to-do list the past few days).
    Cousin Bethany 🙂

    Yes, Gretje is my mother’s paternal great-grandmother. Her grandmother could command a post in her own right. Every ancestor on all sides of my family show strength, courage, creativity and are fascinating.

    1. Norman A Tapper

      Susan, no idea if you will ever get this at this late a date, but obviously we are related as Gretja is my great-great- grandmother. Would like to hear your background if you like.

      1. Susan C Fassbender

        Hi Norman, I was out of town for a few days, and so am a bit late in replying. Yes, we are related through Anton and Louise, I am the granddaughter of Roland and Verna, and Gretje is also my great-great grandmother.

    are you Sue Fassbender??? I’ve lost track of you and have meant to see if you want to be a research buddy.
    I may have the same peony in my garden….I dug some up when we sold Unity Dairy Farm, grandfather George’s farm.

    Hi Susan, I’m a descendant of Joseph Peter Fassbender. Joseph is my great-grandfather, Elmer is my grandfather. Thanks for sharing the info you have. I’m into family history also, and enjoy reading your stories here 🙂

    1. Susan C Fassbender

      Hello Jennifer, thanks so much for your comment, and it’s nice to “meet” you. I have much more to tell, and really need to sit down and concentrate on continuing the story. It will be a good goal for the coming year.
