I came across your site tonight as I was looking up my uncle Lonnie (my dad was Jim Kasperbauer). I was in iowa this summer for uncle pats grandsons wedding and hoped to see uncle Lonnie then, but his brakes were messed up in his car and he didn’t make the trip to iowa city for the wedding. Now I wish I had driven to Des Moines to see him.

I think the last time I saw uncle Lonnie was at my uncle Fred’s funeral (Fitzsimmons).

Thanks for all information you post on your page. The search of 1966 really demonstrated how hard you work on it. I graduated with your brother Doug that year so there were a lot of pictures I remembered. The picture of my mother, Ida Musfeldt in the kitchen band, was one I bet she hid from me, what a hoot! Should I ever get back to Manning, I will bring a small number of items you may want to scan and add to your history. Keep up the good work!
Best regards, Phillip Musfeldt

Mr. Kusel,

Deep appreciations for your detailed and fascinating webpage. I was a very young man the last time I was in Manning (for my Grandfather - Herald Vehrs's funeral). Your page brings back many wonderful memories of Manning. For me it has always been a very special place. My father (Richard) served a career in the Air Force and whenever we moved to a different base, we came to Manning for transitional leave. Manning is magical. The people make it that way. I am now retired from the Army and considering a visit to see the beautiful changes and growth the town has made.
SALUTE to you for all of your hard work keeping this up!

My sister Cindy Tuttle told me of your website. I was excited to see your picture of the 1950 confirmation picture of Zion Lutheran as my grandfather Edwin Grimm was in that picture. I am the daughter of Virgene "Jean" Doris Grimm. Ed's oldest daughter. I haven't been back to Manning for quite awhile but I really appreciate what you are doing. thanks Anita

Dave, I got a new laptop for Christmas and have been reading your webpage.....looking through many pages you have. Found one of your Mom's pictures and found a picture of the old Zion Lutheran Church and often wondered what happened to that beautiful altar. It breaks my heart that it was torn out and sent to the dump.....I knew that it was a Baptist church that aquired the building. Living in the South and having been in several Baptist churches, I knew they do not have altars, much less, a beautiful one and feared that was probably what happened. Its something I just dont understand.

Well, another year has come and gone.
It's been 27 years since I first created my web page.
Back then there weren't many web pages, some bulletin boards but no social media sites.
I had lots of people from around the world sign my guestbook back then but now, my web pages are not even a grain of sand in the sea.
But that is OK because my site is about Manning/area, its people and their history, and this is what I concentrate on.
Until 2024
Dave Kusel
