I knew the 2 girls very well. The Weise family were raised at Owatona, Minnesota. As the two girls got old enough they left home and came to Sleepy Eye.

Frederick William Kissner

M, b. 14 May 1844, d. 13 January 1921

Frederick Kissner
  • Misc*: Frederick William Kissner was Born in Ratschin, Prussia (now Raczyn, Poland) he emigrated to the US with his parents and siblings in July 1862, settling near Green Lake, WI., then moved to Owatonna MN and then to Sleepy Eye, MN. He had a farm NW of Sleepy Eye and raised five children: Louis, Laura (Werner), Lydia (Sasse), Amanda (Brand) and Josephine (Moll). One son died in infancy.
    His death came at 8:30 pm Thursday, Jan. 13th while attending prayer meeting at the home of his neighbor Dan Moll. The quick summons by heart failure was a shock to his family and friends but to those who knew his condition for weeks were not surprised by his sudden taking off.
    As a friend and neighbor he was always kind, considerate and generous with good cheer and encouragement. He tried to make your and my pathway lighter and pleasant. - taken from the Sleepy Eye Herald obit.1
  • Note*: ...Next in line was Fred Kissner (my father) who was born in Germany in 1844 and came to America at the age of 17 years, on the same boat with his parents. The whole Ludwig Kissner family came to America at that time in 1861. The trip was made in a sail boat. They wre on the water four weeks and could only move when the wind would blow. Not only that--the wind would have to come from the right direction. I remember Dad saying that some days the wind was so still you could throw a feather out on the water and it would not move and their boat also laid just that still. Toward the end of the trip they were running low on food and water, which had to be rationed. At last they made it and were they ever a happy people as they again set foot on solid ground. Grandfather took his entire family inland as far as Wisconsin. My dad then must have spent the first period of his life in Wisconsin--about seven or eight years. I remember him telling of Dolph Gardinear, a farmer who he worked for for three years. Gardinear was an Englishman and a good farmer--up to date as it was practiced at that time. Here Did got a big part of his training as a farmer which stood him in good stead in later years. This man kept three hired men the year 'round and at plowing time he'd get his men out to plow so early in the morning they'd sit on the plows waiting for daylight. This training made a good farmer out of my Dad, passed on his methods to me. I dare say that we hauled out more manure than any other neighbor farmers for miles around. I guess that is why I got to be six foot tall. There were five in our family, my four sisters and myself. I don't remember that Father ever mentioned the salary he got as he worked for that farmer in Wisconsin but imagine it was plenty low. Dod, at that time, probably was quite a sporty gudy as he was plenty hard up even after he had worked out for 7 or 8 years.
    He came to Minnesota in 1869 and found a piece of land four miles northwest of Sleepy Eye. This was before the town was settled and the land cost hime $1.25 per acre. There was nothing but raw prairie as he stood and looked over miles and miles of grass. The most pressing need was shelter and while building a shack he slept in the wagon box, turning it upside down in rainy weather. The nearest place to get logs was at the Minnesota River 7 or 8 miles away. He managed to get them hauled, hewed them so at least one side would be flat and smooth, and notched the ends so they'd fit at the corners. Then they'd find some pure clay, add enough water to make mud and then mix a certain amount of straw in the mud to make it more binding. This mixtures was used to fill the spaces between the logs, to make an air-tight wall. This was our home for twelve years and it became my birthplace, but I never got to be the President of the United States.
    In 1870 took onto himself a wife. That is quite a complicated story. In the little country of Denmark a young grl only sixteen years old got the idea that she wanted to go to America. Her parents ojected, felling that she was much too young for an adventure like that. But one thing was in her favor--she had an older brother who had gone on before and he wrote interesting letters about his job in a lumber camp in northern Wisconsin. She was so persistent that at last the family allowed her to go. She crossed the ocean by steam ship in fine shape and came on to Milwaukee, where she found her brother, Christ. She had the good fortune to get work as a housekeeper for a most refined family there in Milwaukee. She learned the English language and the art of good housekeeping. She worked for these people for three years. Her parents also sold out in Denmark and came to America, coming directly to Minnesota. They bought land that joined my dad's farm and the two neighbors quickly became acquainted. Dad, being a bachelor, asked these people to bake bread for him which they willingly did. After a short time, mrs. Anderosn took sick and was forced to write to her daughter, Anna, in Milwaukee to come and take care of her. Anna answered the call for help and made the trip to Minnesota. With no Sleepy Eye on the map she thought Golden Gate would be the nearest settlement to her father's farm so she took the stage to Golden Gate which was on the Minnesota River. She inquired for the John Anderson's but nobody knew them and she had quite a time before she found her parents.
    When young Fred Kissner went to get his bread this girl from Milwaukee met him at the door. Don't ask me how it all went! There were six or seven bachelors in this neighborhood and it did not take long before this girl from Milwaukee had just that many callers, but Fred Kissner, a German, became the winner even over some of her own countrymen. They were married in 1870 and became the parents of five children: Louis, Laura, Lydia, Amanda and Sophia....2

  • Note*: ...Next in line in the Ludwig Kissner family was Wilimina. She was a very attractive girl as I remember her. She had wuite a few callers but none seemd to be quite satisfactory. She said if Fred Radetzke would come then it might be. It happened that Fred did call and they joined hands for life. Uncle Fred bought a farm four miles northeast of Sleepy Eye and there is where they lived for many years. They raised a family of eight boys and two girls and were a very fine family. Our folks would visit the Radetzke family once or twice a year as I was growing up. It was always something special when we would go to Uncled Radetzke's, seven or eight miles from our farm. It must be thirty years since the Radetzkes sold their fine farm at Sleepy Eye and moved to Echo, Minnesota where they bough a much larger farm and lived there the rest of their days. They are now at rest in the cemetary at Echo, Minnesota...1

William Ludwig Kissner

M, b. 13 March 1849, d. 23 September 1926

William Ludwig Kissner. Photo couresty of C L Kissner.
  • Misc*: William Ludwig Kissner was Born to Augusta Gronke and Ludwig Kissner in Ratschin Prussia (now Raczyn Poland), he emigrated with his family in July 1862 to Morrison Wisconsin. The family later moved to Owatonna MN and then to Sleepy Eye MN. William farmed there until moving to Mulhall Oklahoma. He married Mathilda Catherine Manweiler 23 Jan 1872 and their children are: Augusta who died at six weeks, Bertha Augusta (Prosch), William Theodore, Minnie Rosa (Koester), Reuben Otto, Louisa Matilda (McGaugh/Ellis).1
  • Note*: ...Uncle Bill, as we always called him, was next in line. I got to know him very well. They lived on a farm three miles northwest of Sleepy eye for a number of years. Then on account o fht epoor health of his wife, Aunt matilda, mee Manweiler, he rented his farm and moved to Sleepy Eye. He worked there for a few years in a grain elevator. At that time there was not much 'elevator' about it. Grains were handled with scoop shovel, a strong back and a two wheeled cart. After a few years he became a live stock buy in partnership with two other men. In that business he was exposed to the old time saloon life every day and got to drinking more than he ever should, although not quite as bad as his partners. He admitted he was not making any headway so we went back to the farm again. Now see what strong drink will do. He wanted to quite or at least cut down but found himself not strong enough to say, "so much and no more." Every time he'd go to town his wife had to go along and help him get away from the crowd. Uncle bill then made quite a decision. He decided that if he'd get away from his old crowd altogether he could quit drinking. So he up and moved to Mulhall, Oklahoma with his family . I have been told that in Oklahoma, he got the best of the drink habit and so got to be the master of himself. They bought quite a large farm in Oklahoma and farmed heavily for a number of years, prospering in the process. They retired and lived at ease for several years but are now at eternal rest in the cemetary at Mulhall, Oklahoma. They raised a family of two boys and three girls who have all found their place in this world and are making good....2

  • Note*: ...I got to know Uncle Theodore Kissner least of all the brothers. I remember different things my father told about him. They lived in Owatonna, a hundred miles away. I remember as I was still very young that he and his family made us a visit at Sleepy Eye. Uncle Theodore was the straightest and tallest of all the Kissner boys and also the most athletic. He was especially good at turning handsprings. He was also quite a hunter as they lived not far from Rice Lake. In season large numbers of wild geese and ducks would settle there. he thus had opportunity to shoot many a wild goose. Its too bad Uncle Theodore had to leave this world so early in life. One morning he was go go [sic] to his neighbor on some errand. He planned to ride horseback and as he was about to mount the horse something happened. Apparently he suffered a heart attack and that was the end. He was 48 years old. He left a family of five girls and one boy and his widow, Aunt Augusta, to carry on alone. They all found their place. One of them said that none of them set the world on fire but all are there. Aunt Augusta is the only aunt we have left and she is now over 90 years of age. Anna, Melba and I drove to Owatonna and called on her and some of the others who all showed us a most agreeable time. We found Aunt Augusta lying on her couch as she is stricked with arthritis and has to spend most of her time on the couch or in a wheel chair. Her mind is clear and she does not show her age too much...1

  • Note*: ...Augusta was the youngest of the Ludwig Kissner family. She was born in America and grew to womanhood at Owatonna. I never got to know her as a girl but remember she was married to August Utah [sic]. My father and young Utah got to be quite intimate friends and Dad must have told him that he had a sister at Owatonna. In time they made the trip to that city and all worked out as planned. Utah was one fo the largest farmers around Sleepy Eye. He was a good horseman and drove about the finest team for miles around. As a farmer he did very well. Their farm was four miles north of Sleepy Eye, where they raised their family of four girls, and one boy Fred, I might mention here that Fred died of the 'flu' during World war I. The girls all married men who died early in life and all are widows now...1

  • Misc*: August K Kissner was Born to Carl Kissner and Augusta Gronke in Ratschin, Prussia (now Raczyn Poland). August emigrated to the US in 1857, and according to the Louis Kissner History of the Kissner Family written in 1950, August did so on another man's pass. He lived in Champaign, Illinois for a few years, then moving to Wisconsin, and then to Minnesota. He farmed near Sleepy Eye MN. He married Augusta Nadler in 1862 (she also emigrated in 1857) and their children are: William Samuel, Charles L., Bertha (McElmurray) Ida (Hays), Emma (Gerhardt), George, Anna, Robert, and Helene Cilinda (Schaefer). In 1887 he moved his family to Texas.1
  • Note*: ...August, the elder son of Carl and Agusta [sic], grew up on Germany to the draft age of that country. As a boy August never did want to be a soldier. We can't blame him as without a doubt he knew that his Grandad had been killed in war. So some way he figured out if he only could get ot America that would make hime free. But to get out of his country he would have ot have a pass-port from his government, giving him the right to leave the country. That is what he tried to do. But to his great disappointment Germany would not give him a pass-port. Now what next? It seems luck was not altogether against him. After some time he met another soldier who had a pass, but had decided not to go to America. Agust got the idea that maybe he could get to America on the other fellow's pass-port, and so started and bargained for the other fellow's papers. He was able to buy it and was able to pass trhough on the other fellow's pass and in that way was able to get to the free country of America.
    He got as far inland as Wisconsin. He must have made good from the very start as in a few years he had made enough to get settled on a farm. He then arried [sic] Aguata Nadler. She must have been as pretty a girl as could be found anywhere as I always considered her as my prettiest aunt. Now what more happened there in Wisconsin? Some way he got under the influence of the German Evangelical denomination and got under conviction that it was necessary to change his former way of living. He became a devout Christian. He practiced true religion the rest of his life. Now for some reason they decided to sell their farm in Wisconsin and move to Minnesota. And that is what thye did. They bought a farm five miles Northwest of Sleepy Eye, just across the road east of our Dad's place. Uncle August rasied a family of four boys and five girls but had the misfortune of loosing three of them. I was too young to remember as they arrived but do remember them as far back as my memory goes. They were my playmates as I grew up. At different times it happened that I would be at their home in the morning or a breakfast. Uncle would take his Bible and read a portion of Scripture. Then the whole family would kneel while Uncle or Aunt would offer prayer. The impression this made on my young heart I have never forgotten and is there yet. At that time such had not been practiced at our house. It seems Uncle August was of a roving disposition. He soon found faults with Minnesota; mostly the cold winters. He keept reading literature about the south until in 1884 ot '85 he sold their nice farm here and moved to Abilene, Texas with their whole family. It would have been all right but for lack of rain. One dry year followed another and made the going not so good. Now August and wife are bothe buried at Abilene, Texas, and I am sure their souls are resting in perfect peace. I must say all of their family are treading the path of righeousness as their parents had before them..."2

He then bought a farm three miles northeast of Sleepy Eye and raised a family of four boys and four girls. Uncle Charlie joined and belonged to the methodist church and must say a devout Christian he was. At different times I as a boy went to their church when they had revival meetings and there heard Uncle Charlie offer prayer to God and Savior on high. He lived at Sleepy Eye quite a number of years then sold out and moved to Echo, Minnesota. He bought a farm there bur before long was not able to take it. one morning during church services he slumped back on to his seat. His heart had stopped and Uncle Charlie had gone to his reward.

He was born August 28th, 1816 and moved from Guernsey County to Logan County, with his parents in 1835. He said that at that time there was no house closer than 2 or 3 miles, no road, and not a stick of timber cut unless for coon. He has told the writer that he could kill plenty of turkeys but deer was not large enough for him to shoot at. He was married to Julia A Amerine, May 4, 1840 and began housekeeping in a log house on the farm where he resided till his death. They lived in the log house till 1861, where he built a frame one.

  • ObituaryText: Henry Harrison Bell, son of Moses and Julia Amerine Bell, was born March 21 1859, and departed this life August 1, 1931, being the last of this family to survive. With the exception of the last eight years, which had been lived in Walnut Grove, he had lived on the old farm where he was born, just west of West Mansfield. Sept 14, 1882 he was united in marriage to Emma C. Easton, with whom he was permitted to live almost 49 years of happy wedded life. To this union five children born, one dying in infancy. These are left to mourn his passing, his widow and the following children: Webster Lee Bell, of near Bellfountaine; Daisy, wife of George Davis, of near West Mansfield; Ina, wife of Harry Gilbert, of Bellfountaine, and James, who resides on the home farm; also seven grandchildren, all of whom were his special pride and joy.
    Early in the year of 1903 he united with the M.P. Church in Walnut Grove. He was a faithful member, but illness of several months had prevented his attendance. He was a good neighbor, always willing to give a helping hand and a cheerful word. He was progressive, always trying to improve his home methods of farming and stock raising, in which he was always much interested. The following poetry expresses his character very fittingly: "Withhold all eulogies when I am dead, all noisy sorrow; give me the tender word to-day, instead of tears to-marrow. Speak not my name, when I have passed from the earth, in tones of sadness; at thought of me, repress no not of mirth, no burst of gladness. Regard me not as altered, when removed to the hereafter, think of me still as loving, and as loved, with joy and laughter. Pretend not that I merit saintly fame, let mercy save me. Sufficient for my epitaph, the name my mother gave me.
    Card of thanks. We wish to thank those who sent flower, or anyone else who helped with the kind services and sympathy at the time of the death of our husband and father, Harrison Bell - Mrs. Harrison Bell and children (death august 1, 1931.)2
