Earl and Meta Nash

When my daughter, Lindsey, as born in 1981, I thought she might someday like to know about her ancestors. I contacted my grandparents, Earl and Meta Nash of Spring Valley. They had memories to contribute which inspired me to research their family history further, and I would like to share what I found with you.

Earl's mother was Florence N. Smith (born at Spring Valley on February 2, 1863). She was the daughter of Dryden and Elizabeth (Hines) Smith, who were among the early settlers of Spring Valley, coming in 1860, Florence received her education in the schools of Spring Valley, and taught ten years in the country.

Both Dryden Smith and Elizabeth (Hines) were direct descendents of Revolutionary War stock. In 1804, John M. Smith, (Dryden's father and Earl's great-grandfather) with some young Kentuckians, accompanied Lewis and Clark from St. Louis to Council Bluffs, Iowa in their expedition to Oregon. He also raised a company of Tennessee riflemen and stood at the battle of New Orleans and assisted in building forts Rock Island and Peoria. John M. Smith's father, Andrew Smith, was in the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War. Another of Earl's great-grandfathers, Cornelius Hines, also fought in the War for Independence.

Moving to the paternal side of Earl's family, we find Francis Nash, his fifth generation grandfather, listed in the 1675 Braintree, Massachusetts records, when he was a soldier in King Phillips War. Other records date relatives to within ten years of the Pilgrim's landing in New England. Loren, Earl's father, was a native of Harmony, New York, born October 29, 1842. He lived with his parents in that state until he was fourteen years old, and then moved with them to Forestville, Minnesota, where he attended school and worked on a farm. On January 4, 1864, he enlisted in the army, served with Company H. 8th Regiment, Minnesota Infantry, until the close of the Civil War.

In 1889 he married Florence Smith, who later gave birth to ten children, four of whom died in infancy. Earl was born May 13, 1890, in Cherry Grove and attended Spring Valley schools.  He married Meta Westphal on April 28, 1920 in Wykoff. They farmed east of Wykoff until 1977, when the moved to Spring Valley.  Earl was a member of the Farmers' Union and served on the Spring School Board.  Most of my grandmother Meta's family were farmers.  Minnie Kraling Westphal, her mother, was the oldest child of the Fredrick Kraling family.  Minnie was born  October 24, 1859 in the kingdom of Prussia, in the province of Hintern Pommern.  Her father and mother, Hannah Sophie (Krueger) Kraling, her grandmother Kraling and her younger sister, Emelia, left the country we call Germany when she was two.  They first lived in Harmony when they came to this country, but Minnie and her family of eight brothers and sisters grew to adulthood Northeast of Wykoff.  Minnie met Fredrick Westphal, who born in Pommern, Germany August 4, 1858, and in 1853 he came to Black River Falls and LaCrosse, Wisconsin, before Wykoff.  They married February 8, 1887 and farmed east of Wykoff.  Fred died in September 3, 1935 and Minnie died July 6, 1941.  Meta was the youngest of four children of Fred and Minnie Westphal, and lived  in the parental Westphal home east of Wykoff. Earl and Meta raised eight children: Mrs. Clayton (Frances) Tammel, Clarence, Mrs. Dolores Thiemann, Mrs. Floyd (Florene) Whipple, Mrs. Maynard (Phyllis) Root, Donald, Harvey, and Mrs. Gloria Engle.  In sharing my grandparents' family history with you, I tried in my own way small way to pay tribute to my grandfather, Earl, who passed away on March 20, 1983. Submitted by Mr. Roger L. Thiemann.[Broderbund Family Archive #110, Vol. 2 M-Z, Ed. 6, Social Security Death Index: U.S., Date of Import: Jun 8, 2001, Internal Ref. #1.112.6.29040.182]

My Life Story by Donald Thiemann - October 1997

      I was born on Nov. 3, 1924 at Fairmont, Minnesota. to Hugo and Frieda Thiemann.
I was the oldest of 5 children, 4 boys and 1 girl, my brothers were called Harold,
Willard and Merle, my sisters name was Betty. My youngest brother Merle died as a baby from pneumonia at 5 months of age.
     We lived on a farm until I graduated from high school and entered the U.S. Marine Corp. during World War 2. I went to a one room country grade school thru the 8 grade. All of the time at that school there were only 3 to 4 kids in each class, during the 8th year I was the only one in that grade. I had a job at the school the last 2 years that I went there, I had the job of starting the furnace, a wood and coal burner during cold weather, it was not a very exciting job when it was 20 below Zero during the winter.
     One day one of the boys put a small can of cocoa on top of the furnace to warm it up for lunch, he did not open the cover and it got too hot and blew up all over the room. We had to write a story for our English class and it was the cocoa disaster that was the subject that I choose as my subject. My teacher thought that was a very good story so she entered me into a speech contest with my story and I happened to win 1st place there. That was about the high light of My grade school time.
     I had the normal good times that a young boy has on a farm, getting to drive the big tractor when I was in the 7th grade and helping my dad doing some of the field work, we also had horses that did a lot of the field work also, that part I did not enjoy as much as there was always the work of taking care of them, feeding them and the other animals that we had, cows, pigs, horses and always chickens, all of which had to be fed and watered, and then the milking of the cows twice a day which I did from the time I was big enough to carry a milk pail.
     It was not all work and no play on the farm either, we had a creek that run thru the farm and we used to catch small fish and in the winter we would go ice skating and my dad made us a pair of ski from old barrel staves and we would ride one of the horses and pull one another with a rope. We always had neighbor kids to play with and we had many ball games in the summer. We had a number of lakes and parks that we went to in the summer time, for picnics and fishing, it was not all that boring. We had a couple of horses that we could ride so we would take one of them to go out to the pasture to get the cows at milking time.
     We had apple trees on the farm and always Mom had a big garden that kept us in fresh produce, it was always canned when there was more than we could eat. Dad would always butcher a pig or some chickens which were canned also as we did not have an ice box nor did we have electric lights. A gas lantern or lamp was our light. There was no T.V. but we did have a radio that was run by a car battery that Dad took out of the car at night to power the radio. We hardly ever got to go to town in the winter time as the small country road that we lived on did not get plowed unless the farmers living along it did it themselves.
     I started High School at Fairmont, Minnesota in 1938 and went there until March of 1939 when we moved to a farm by Claremont, Minnesota. We lived 7 miles from Fairmont and I rode to school with one of the neighbor boys who drove a car. When I started in Claremont I had to walk, it was just a mile to the school house and was good exercise. When it was too cold, my dad would take us when he took the cream to the creamery. I took the regular classes that were available in a small school. I think that I enjoyed Physics and geography the most. I played baseball, football and basketball for sports. I played center field for baseball, Center on the football team and center on the basketball team, mainly because I was the tallest boy in school.
     I belonged to the 4H club for a couple of years, one year I had a garden for my project and a calf for the rest of the time. My garden was destroyed the night before the leader was to do the annual judging by someone who didn't want me to win, I guess. I was also in the senior class play also, which took care of my acting stint.    We would have what was called spring break, which gave us farm kids a week off to help get the field work done in the spring.
     During the summer when there was not much to help Dad with the field work I got a job for one of the other farmers doing field work. My first job paid 25 cents an hour pulling weeds out of the bean fields. Then I got to drive tractors which was a lot more fun. When I graduated in 1942, I got a job driving a gravel truck and also drove a truck picking up milk in 10 gal. cans and took them to the creamery. After I was done with that I helped in the creamery where they also dried milk and I helped package it in big barrels and then took them to a ware house by the railroad tracks where it was loaded and sent off to the Government.
     The second World War had started and I had to register for the Draft. As I was still helping Dad on the farm also I was not called up until 1943 in Dec. I had my physical in St. Paul, Minnesota at Fort Snelling where I was assigned to the Marine Corps. I left the day after Xmas for San Diego, CA where I went to Boot Camp. I was tested and they seemed to think that I would make a good Radar Operator.
     While I was waiting to go to the school, which was in NORTH CAROLINA, I came down with Strep Throat. But they put a few of us on a train for there, and when we got there I went to the sick bay where they found that I had gotten Rheumatic Fever so I was in the hospital there for a month. The Doctors at that time thought that a warm dry climate would help cure faster so they shipped me back out to the Naval Hospital in Long Beach, CA where I spent a couple more months before I was ready to go back to duty. I was sent to the Naval Air Station on Terminal island, CA where I was made an M.P. It was a good job. I was a Corporal of the Guard at the main gate most of the time. We worked 3 days and then had 2 off so I had a lot of spare time, went to a lot of dances with some of the big name bands of the time. Went to Hollywood and seen some of the movie stars, went to the beach a lot too.
     There was a big park like on the beach, it had a lot of carnival rides and a big roller coaster that I and my best friend would ride for hours. All of this time I was still a Private, I did not get promoted to P.F.C. until I went over seas in Jan. of 1945. First I was sent to Pearl Harbor, where I was first assigned to be a truck driver, I was sent to the Island of Maui where I joined the 3rd Amphibious Tractor Battalion, where I stayed all of the time that I was over seas. After loading ships, LST's we wet sail for the Island of Guam and Saipan, which was still under attack. Japs running all over the place yet. I stayed there until the fighting for Iwo Jima was over.
     Our outfit had Amphibious tanks, of which I had to learn to drive also but my main truck was a semi that was a tank retriever, but I hauled everything from food to cranes and bulldozers, to lumber to make bridges. We also had to do guard duty, it was very scary at night in the jungle After Iwo Jima was taken we went back to Maui for a while. Then we were sent to the big Island, to Hilo where we loaded ships again, we did not know it but it was meant to be the attack on Japan. But the war ended while we were on our way there. We stopped at Okinawa and then went on to the town of Sasebo, Japan for occupation duty. We were the first to enter the town and did not know what to expect but there was nobody in site. It was 3 days before we seen anyone and then it was just old people and little kids, all of the rest of the people had hid out in the hills, afraid of what we might do I guess. All of the time I was there I drove the nite shift, 6 PM to 6 AM unloading ships.
     We were on 30 some miles from Nagasaki where the A bomb hit but we were not allowed to go there because of the radioactivity, but we did travel around some. We found a Jap speed boat that we fixed up and sped around the Bay. Sasebo was a big seaport, but most of it was leveled, bombed out, except the port equipment. The Navy Seabees had the job of taking the guns and torpedo tubes off of the Jap ships so I hauled some of them to a stock pile where it was cut up for scrap. We lived in a big old submarine repair warehouse that was made into barracks. Not bad and a lot better than the tents we lived in all of the rest of the time that I was overseas.
     After being in Japan for 9 months we loaded all of the equipment and left for Tokyo where we stopped for a few days and then left for the states. On the way we ran into a typhoon, that was a real experience I don't want to go thru again. If the ship would have rolled to the side 3 more degrees I would not be doing this now. On top of that the ship had a bent drive shaft and could only go about half speed.   So it took us 3 weeks to get to San Diego where we stopped for supplies and to let some of the troops off, those that were to be discharged, all from west of the Mississippi River. I guess that they figure Minn. is east of it so back out on the Pacific and down to the Panama Canal, thru it and up past Cuba to Norfolk, VA where we finally got to get off of the ship. The reason we went to the East Coast was that the 3rd Amphib. was part of the 1st Marine Div. and there home base was Camp Lejune North Carolina. In Norfolk they put the rest of us that was to be discharged on a train to Chicago, at the Great Lakes Naval Base where we were given a physical and our leave papers. As I had been in almost 3 years and had no leave time they sent me home. They made me a Corporal, and after all of my leave time was used up, they sent me my discharge papers. That was the end of my Marine Carrier.
     After my Discharge I took a job driving the school bus for the Claremont school. I drove the sport teams to games at different towns around, besides picking kids up and taking them home from school. After school was out I took a job driving a gravel truck and a milk truck for a short time. Then I took a job as a farm manager for a man from Winona, who had land out in South Dakota and around Claremont, Minnesota. I hired help for some of the farms and drove his semi out to Dakota and bought seed for the farms. I did this for about 3 years.

Thiemann Name Origins

As first Germans, the 'Tingmann' lived around the "Tingplace". Out of it the names of "Thiemann", "Thremes", "Thielmann" developed. 

"Thie" in the Münsterland describes the meeting-point at the lime-tree of the villages. "At the Thie" is a frequent name of streets in Westfalia. Etymological it has something to do with the "Thing-place", which is found in several germanic languages as race-meeting-point and court of justice-place. It is also found in names of towns in Iceland.  The Thiemann-people would not have lived on the lime-trees, but presumable as innkeepers and organizers at the celebrations and parties at the lime-tree.

Hello Roger,
 
I have good news for you:
I got it! I have found your Oberortmannsdorf, the home-town of your ancestors from Germany.
 
I found it by accident, but there is a logical reason why you can not find this town under this name today. Oberortmannsdorf was the former name of the town in the area of the old Germany in the borders before the World Wars. So today, the town does not belong to Germany any more, but is now located in Poland and has also a strange name in polish language.
 
With this mail I send you some links for the www, where you can look at some information about Oberortmannsdorf. The pages are even published in English.
 
If you follow the first one you will see a map of former Germany in the borders of 1871:
http://www.genealogienetz.de/reg/ger1871.html
In the east-south you will find a region, which is called "Schlesien" (english: Silesia). This is the area where Oberortmannsdorf is located, now in Poland.
 
If you follow the map or the next link, you will get to the homepage of Schlesien, with information about it:
http://www.genealogienetz.de/reg/SCI/sil-e.html
 
Then you can come to a list of all towns. At the letter O, you will find in alphabetical order the entry "Ober Örtmannsdorf" in the district of Lauban:
http://www.genealogienetz.de/reg/SCI/ortsliste/deu_O-d.html
 
This is your town you have been searching for. The current name in Poland is: Szyszkowa Gorna.
So now, you can take a look on map services and search for the polish town to see where your ancestors came from.
Perhaps on: http://www.falk.de --> Stadtpläne
 
I hope my information was a little help for you and your genealogy.
By the way: Didn't you get my last mail about "Suttorf"? What is the matter about this topic?
I would appreciate hearing from you again. I would be happy if we could stay in contact.
 
Greetings from Germany and Happy Easter. Thorsten

Subject: Thiemann from Germany again
Hello Roger,  thank you so much for your mail. I was very happy getting into contact with you. First, also a statement to the situation in the US. For us Germans it is also such an unbelievable and terrible thing. I will never forget Sept 11, how I watched TV and saw the holes in the World Trade Center and how the buildings fell down. In 1999 I was the first time in the USA and visited New York. I stood at the WTC, down at the bottom, the place which is now called "Ground Zero". I was high on the Empire State Building, looking to the south of Manhattan and took photos of the Twin Towers. And today they are not there any more. When I see the pictures in TV, I still think it is an action film of the cinema. Unbelievable.
 
OK, your information about Thiemann-genealogy was very helpful for me. Thank you. The mails you sent to me were the exact answers to my questions. Now I will try to translate the text for you into English. I try to translate it word by word if it is possible so far. Otherwise I describe and explain what the authors could have wanted to express. By the way I hope my own grammar is understandable. It is very diffucult to translate the first mail you sent to me, because it is not real german language. It seems to me, that the person does not speak german himself, but wanted to translate into german from another language. So there are many mistakes and sometimes words which do not exist.
 
"Dear Roger! We are all related. As first Germans the 'Tingmann' lived around the 'Tingplace'. ... Out of it the names of 'Thiemann', 'Thremes', 'Thielmann' developed. Otherwise I recommend to you to write to the church-communities of the towns Tharandt, Braunsdorf, Pohrsdorf and Fördergersdorf, 50-75 km away from Dresden. You can also live in our garden-house and search for your signs of your ancestors. It is the Oberlausitz in Saxony and our mother land is wonderful." So far the first one. The second will be a bit easier. "Hello to Minnesota! Unfortunately I can not contribute anything to the Thiemann from Saxony. Without great researches it stands firm that nobody from my relationship from Westfalia and the Rhineland moved from or to Saxony. But one hint to the name: My grandfather told me, that 'Thie' in the Münsterland describes the meeting-point at the lime-tree of the villages. 'At the Thie' is a frequent name of streets in Westfalia. Etymological it has something to do with the 'Thing-place', which is found in several germanic languages as race-meeting-point and court of justice-place. It is also found in names of towns in Iceland. Now, the Thiemann-people would not have lived on the lime-trees, but presumable as innkeepers and organisators at the celebrations and parties at the lime-tree. I myself, have once lived in Cologne in the street 'At the lime-tree' and have married a women named 'lime' , and so I have a double name with indirect twice limes. Good luck with the following researches and greetings from Cologne. Jörg Thiemann-Linden."  Ok Roger, that's it so far. I hope my translation is right and could help you to understand a bit more. I will keep my eyes open by searching the Thiemann-family and genealogy-information. Perhaps I can find something interesting out for you and give you more information for your own genealogy and your unknown home-area around Oberortmannsdorf in Saxony.  During the time I would be glad to stay in contact with you. It is interesting to have found someone with the same name like me but thousands of kilometers and more than an ocean away. But in these technological and communicating times with e-mail and so on the distance is no problem. It is also funny to speak (write) English again. It would be a pity to lose the knowledge of this foreign language. I am looking forward hearing from you again if you want. Thorsten

Hallo nach Minnesota!

leider kann ich zu den sächsischen Thiemännern und -frauen gar nichts beitragen. Ohne große Recherchen steht bei meiner Verwandtschaft fest, dass sich da  keineraus der westfälischen und rheinischen Herkunft nach Sachsen bewegt hat oder von dort herkam.  Noch ein Hinweis zum Namen: mein Großvater hat mich aufgeklärt, das "Thie"  in den Dörfern des Münsterlandes den Versammlungsplatz an der Dorflinde  bezeichnet. "An der Thie" ist ein häufiger Straßenname in Westfalen. Ethymologisch habe das etwas mit dem Thingplatz zu tun hat, den es in mehreren germanischen Sprachen als Stammesversammlungs- und Gerichtsplatz gibt und der z.B. in Island in Ortsnamen auftaucht. Nun werden die Thiemänner nicht auf den Dorflinden gelebt haben, sondern vermutlich eher aus Gastwirte eine Organisationsaufgabe für die Feste an der Linde gehabt haben. Ich selber habe (irgendwann als ich in Köln in der Straße "An der Linde"  gewohnt hatte), eine Frau namens Linden geheiratet und trage seitdem einen Doppelnamen mit indirekt 2 mal Linden .... Viel Glück bei den weiteren Recherchen und herzlichen Gruß aus Köln Jörg Thiemann-Linden.

Hello to Minnesota! unfortunately I cannot contribute Mrs. nothing at all to the Saxonian Thiemaennern and -. Without large 
searches it is certain with my relationship that none moved there from the westfaelischen and rheinischen origin to Saxonia or from there came. Still another note to the name: my grandfather cleared me up, which defines " Thie" in the villages of the cathedral  Muenster the rendevous point at the village lime tree. " to the Thie " a frequent  street name is in Westphalia. Ethymologisch has that something with the Thingplatz to do has, which there is in several Germanic languages as master  meeting and court workstation and that emerge e.g. in Iceland in place names.  Now the Thiemaenner will have lived restaurant 
operators/barkeepers a scheduler task for the celebrations at the lime tree not on the village lime trees, but probably rather out will have had. I married and carry (sometime as I in Cologne in the road " at the lime tree " used had), a woman named lime trees since then a double name with indirectly 2 times lime trees... Much luck with the further searches and cordial greeting from Cologne Joerg Thiemann lime trees.

I am researching the THIEMANN/Leuteritz/Muller families who originated from the Tharandt - Mohorn - Pohrsdorf - Oberortmannsdorf-Oberlausitz - Fodergersdorf area. In 1867 many family members came to the United States. If you know of THIEMANN family members who still live in this region, I would enjoy hearing from them.

Ich erforsche die THIEMANN-/Leuteritz/Mullerfamilien, die vom Tharandt - dem Mohorn - dem Pohrsdorf -
Oberortmannsdorf-Oberlausitz - Bereich Fodergersdorf entstanden. 1867 viel Familie kamen Bauteile in die Vereinigten Staaten. Wenn Sie von den THIEMANN-Familie Bauteilen wissen, denen noch Phasen in dieser Region, ich Hörfähigkeit von ihnen genießen würde.

Lieber Empfänger: leiten Sie Bitte zu Volker Thiemann, Behringstr. 33, 02625 Bautzen weiter. Vielen Dank. 

Lieb Volker, Es ist eine lange Zeit gewesen, da ich an Sie geschrieben habe, deshalb wollte ich lassen, daß Sie wissen, daß ich noch hier bin. Ich habe Ihren Weihnachtsbrief und liebliche Ostern Karte / Bautzen Informationen im März empfangen. Vielen Dank deshalb viel! Ich entschuldige mich für wie zum Beispiel lange Verspätung beim Antworten, aber ich trage Ihre Briefe mit mir in meiner Aktentasche, für irgendeine zusätzliche Zeit hoffend wenn ich zurück zu Ihnen schreiben kann. Schließlich habe ich einen übrigen Moment. Meine Familie wird sehr Sie an mich jedesmal aufgeregt schreiben. Ich teile alle Ihre Briefe mit ihnen. Mein Vater und Mutter wird älter, beide geboren in 1924 jetzt waren. Ich weiß, daß mein Vater Sehen Ihrer Briefe mag. Ich werde Ihnen dies wieder über die E-mail ich vor schicken anredet habe benutzt. Ich hoffe, daß Sie diese Notiz erhalten. Da wir im nördlichen Teil der Vereinigten Staaten leben, haben wir nur ein paar mehr Wochen von nettem warmem Wetter, bevor die Temperaturen beginnen, zu fallen. Durch die Mitte den Oktober werden wir viele Nächte haben, wo die Temperatur unter 0 Graden C ist. Meine drei Kinder (zu Hause) sind 2-7 Jahre alt. Sie wird aufgeregt um Schnee, wieder zu kommen. Selbstverständlich bin ich nicht daß glücklich um es. Es ist auch viel Arbeit, Schnee zu bewegen. Den Winter ist Schnee sehr tief, und alles schaltet während Schneestürme (schlechter Schnee Stürme) ab. Wir schätzen die warmen Temperaturen, die hier vom März durch Octiber sind. Dann ist es nicht gut draußen. Ich weiß nicht, wie Kanadier lebend bleibt! Ich höre, daß Dresden abtrennen, wurde überschwemmt letzten Monat. Ich bin erbärmlich, daß Nachrichten zu hören. Ich hoffe, daß alle Leute in jenem Gebiet des Deutschlands ihre Leben zusammen bald erhalten können. In 1978 haben wir eine servere Flut in meinem hometown von Rochester, Minnesota gehabt. 5 Leute wurden getötet. Das Bild ist unten Ein den ich von Rochester habe genommen, während ich darüber dieser Sommer geflogen bin. Sie können den Fluß in der Aufnahme sehen. Stellen Sie jetzt sich ein drittes von der Stadt, die mit Flut Wasser bedeckt wird vor! Niemand könnte den Fluß kreuzen, damit die Stadt abschaltet. Ich arbeite neben dem großen weißen Gebäude in der Mitte der Aufnahme. Dies ist Mayo Klinik Medizinische Mitte. Sie können davon gehört haben.  Ich will auch Sie, einen photo von mir und meiner Familie (unten) zu haben: Es war heiß deshalb die Jungen nicht glücklich waren.  Ich will eine Einladung zu Ihnen ausdehnen, Besuch uns zu kommen, wenn Sie je es zu den Vereinigten Staaten und ausdrücklicher, Minnesota machen können. Es gibt viele Dinge, hier in diesem Teil Landes - zu sehen, aber kommt den Sommer herein! Wir haben ein großes Heim auf dem Land, mit 5 Schlafzimmern. Es gibt viel Platz für Sie, wenn Sie einen Ort mögen würden, für einen kurzen Urlaub zu bleiben. Wir bedenken einen Haus Gast nicht hat. Wir machen dies auf Anlaß für Freunde, die einen Ort brauchen, für 7-10 Tage zu bleiben. Amerika ist ein schönes Land. Und wir sind eine glücklichen und starken Leute, ungeachtet was anderer versuchen können, zu uns zu machen. Wir sorgen uns um andere und, der es traurig ist, zu sehen, was andere denken, daß ein typischer Amerikaner wie ist. Wir sind gleich wie Sie: Versuch, unsere Familien durch Arbeiten hart zu erheben - zur Arbeit gehend für lange Tage, nach Hause kommend mit unseren Kindern, und Erhöhung zu sein die sie, ehrlich, Geben und compationate Leute zu sein. Das ist mein Leben, und, was viele Mitamerikaner an glauben. Damit ich hoffe daß Sie eine wunderbare Sturz Jahreszeit haben, und meinen Brief hat genossen.  Ich werde versuchen, interessierter zu sein, kurz davor sein, zu Ihnen.. es nur Chaos seit dem September 11th von letztem Jahr ist gewesen. Viele Leute sind arbeitslos, und Leute sind bange, von was die verrückten Leute nächst versuchen werden. Nehmen Sie Sorge. Ich gebe Ihnen und Ihrer Familie mein bestes! Roger

Dear Recipient: Please forward to Volker Thiemann, Behringstr.33,  02625 Bautzen. Thank you.
Dear Volker, It has been a long time since I wrote to you, so I wanted to let you know that I am still here. I received your Christmas letter and lovely Easter card / Bautzen information in March. Thank you so much! I apologize for such as long delay in responding, but I carry your letters with me in my briefcase, hoping for some additional time when I can write back to you. Finally I have a spare moment. My family is very excited every time you write to me. I share all your letters with them. My father and mother are getting older now, both were born in 1924. I know my father likes seeing your letters. I will send this to you again via the email address I've used before. I hope you get this note. Since we live in the northern part of the United States, we only have a few more weeks of nice warm weather before the temperatures begin to fall. By the middle of October we will have many nights where the temperature is below 0 degrees C. My three children (at home) are 2-7 years old. They are getting excited about snow coming again. Needless to say, I am not that happy about it. It is too much work to move snow. The winter snow is very deep, and everything shuts down during blizzards (bad snow storms). We appreciate the warm temperatures that are here from March through Octiber. Then it is not good outside. I don't know how Canadians stay alive! I hear that Dresden was severly flooded last month. I am sorry to hear that news. I hope all of the people in that region of Germany are able to get their lives together soon. In 1978 we had a servere flood in my hometown of Rochester, Minnesota. 5 people were killled. The picture below is one I took of Rochester while I flew over it this summer. You can see the river in the photo. Now imagine one third of the city covered with flood water! No one could cross the river so the city shut down. I work next to the large white building in the middle of the photo. This is Mayo Clinic Medical Center. You may have heard of it. I also want you to have a photo of me and my family (below): It was hot so the boys were not happy. I want to extend an invitation to you to come visit us if you ever can make it to the United States and more specifically, Minnesota. There are many things to see here in this part of country - but come in the summer! We have a large home in the country, with 5 bedrooms. There is plenty of room for you if you would like a place to stay for a short vacation. We do not mind having a house guest. We do this on occasion for friends who need a place to stay for 7-10 days.  America is a beautiful country. And we are a happy and strong people, regardless of what others may try to do to us. We care about others and it's sad to see what others think a typical American is like. We're just like you: trying to raise our families by working hard - going to work for long days, coming home to be with our children, and raising them to be honest, giving and compationate people. That's my life, and what many fellow Americans believe in. So I hope you have a wonderful fall season and have enjoyed my letter. I will try to be more responsive about getting replies to you .. it just has been chaos since September 11th of last year. Many people are out of work, and people are afraid of what those crazy people will try next.  Take care. I give my best to you and your family! Roger
