Comments: Hi David. My father, now deceased, is
Cyril Kusel. My mother, Sharon Kusel. I was seeking information on Julius
Abraham and Sarah Kusel, which my brother Aaron has portaits of. Many thanks to
you for keeping the family tree. I guess I am the one to do that for my family.
Also, my brother has a framed certificate of sorts that would indicate that
there is a German Baron with the Kusel name in our history. Thanks

Comments: Hope your harvest is going well back
there. It sure is a busy time out here as the beans are just about all in. We
don't have soybeans out here, pretty well all dry edibles (navies, pintos, great
northerns and others) but most of them are cut and windrowed and combined off
the ground. Some farmers are starting to harvest them direct but I don't know
what the loss would be. Sugar beet harvest is in full swing but with this
unusual heat, they have held up a little on them. Corn harvest is just getting
a good start as it's still pretty high moisture. We haven't had a hard freeze
yet but may get one the first of the week. Wheat did pretty well this year.
We've had a very good year as far as moisture goes but not an over abundance of
it like it sounda like you have.

Comments: Hi Dave! My son and daughter-in-law
recently purchased the old pink stucco house at 311 Third Street. I am helping
them research the history of this house and would love to find old photos of the
house back from it's glory days. Mike and Robin (Heaton) have plans to restore
their home to what is used to be while preserving the wonderful features that
lead them to purchasing it in the first place. If you have any info on this
glorious house please let me know! I also have Renee at the library checking on
history. Thanks so much! -Beth Heaton

Comments: Wonderful to see info and pictures of
Ol Mease. Oliver Ulysses Mease was my great grand uncle. Born 1866 Stephenson
County,Illinois. Committed suicide 1927 by hanging himself in his barn. He
raised Percheron horses and is listed as owning several in the Percheron stud
archives. It is nice to see a picture of him with one of his horses. He had no
children of his own. His father, mother and most of his siblings settled in the
Ozarks. Thanks for sharing this wonderful information!
