Ethel Mattie Swartz

F, b. 3 May 1897, d. 4 April 1975
  • Note*: FROM: Handwritten note by Ethel
    I don't know if these were poems she remembered or what.

    AGE
    How I know that my youth is all spent
    Well, my get up an go has got up and went,
    But in spite of it all I am able to grin,
    When I think of all the places my get up has been.

    Old age is golden, so I have heard said
    But I sometimes wonder as I hop into bed.
    With my ears in a drawer, my teeth in a cup and
    My eyes on the table 'till I wake up.

    Were sleep dims my eyes I say to myself,
    Is there anything else I can lay on the shelf?
    And am happy to say, as I close the door
    My friends are the same perhaps even more.

    When I was a young thing my slippers were red,
    I could kick up my heels as high as my head.
    Now when I'm older my slippers are blue
    But still I can dance the whole night through.

    Now I am still older my slippers are black
    I walk to the store and pff my way back.
    The reason I know my youth is all spent.
    My Get up and go has got up and went.

    But I really don't mind when i think with a grin
    Of all the grand places my get up has been.
    Since I have retired from life's competition
    I busy myself with complete repetition.

    I get up each morning and dust off my wits
    Pick up the paper and read the obits
    If my name is missing I know I'm not dead
    So I eat a good breakfast and go back to bed.



    WHO THREW THE OVERALLS IN MISTRESS MURPHY"S CHOWDER
    Mistress Murphy gave a party about a week ago. Everything was plentyful, the Murphy's they're not slow. They treated us like gentlemen; we tried to act the same and only for what happened it was an awful shame. When Mrs. Murphy dished the chowder out she fainted on the spot, she found a pair of overalls at the bottom of the pot. Then Nolan, he got ripping mad, his eyes were bulging out, he jumped upon the piano and loudly he did shout:
    (chorus) Who threw the overalls in Mistress Murphy's chowder. Nobody spoke so he hollared all the lowder. It's an irish trick that true, I can like the mick that threw the overalls in Mistress Murphy's chowder.

    The dragged the pants from out the soup and laid them on the floor. Each man swore on his life he'd ne'er seen them before. They were plastered up with Mortor and were worn at the knee, they had their many ups and downs as we could plainly see. When Mistress Murphy she came to she began to cry and pout, she had tem in the wash that day and forgot to take them out. Then Nolan ne excused himself for what he said that night, so we put music to the words and sang with all our might: (chorus.)

Bessie Ella Swartz

F, b. 25 September 1900, d. 11 March 1975
  • Misc*: Bessie Ella Swartz was from Delrose Swartz, 2014 Bess was the true “Oklahoma Bess” – like the character in the movies. Right after we were married, they asked Stan to come down and visit as they wanted him to “farm” the land. Their only son was drowned in the river at age 7 and they never recovered. Dick drank – Bess forever was baking bread with her floury apron & talking up a blue streak. I remember one morning, waking up to her shaking me and saying that she wanted to talk – there was always time for sleeping.
  • Birth*: She was born on 25 September 1900 at Amo township, Cottonwood County, MN, USA.
  • Marriage*: She married Richard Bollenbach on 6 July 1923 at Long Beach, Los Angeles County, CA, USA.1,2

On July 6, 1924 she married Dick Bollenbach at Long Beach, Calif. Shortly thereafter they moved back to Oklahoma and made their home on the farm north of Loyal where Dick was born in 1893. Not long after, His Father staked a claim in the run of the Cheyenne Araphoe Territory. Bess will be remembered for her enthusiasm for living. She enjoyed the country and farm where she lived. When you visited her home, you became aware that she enjoyed raising flowers and peacocks. For her relaxation she spent hours playing on the organ and caring for Lady Bird. Her nieces and nephews looked forward to her letters or the day when Aunt Bess came to their house for a visit. Along with the joys and blessings, she also endured the heartache and disappointments of life. Her only child, a son, preceeded her in death by drowning in the Cimmaron River in 1932. She was also preceded in death by her parents and her husband. She is survived by three sisters: Ethel Smith of Westbrook, Minn, Iris Johnson, Heron Lake, Minn., and Coral Rens of Waterloo, Iowa and one Brother, Clair Swartz of Jeffers, Minn.1
  • Burial*: She was buried after 11 March 1975 at Loyal, Kingfisher County, OK, USA.3

  • ObituaryText: The following letter accompanied the obituary. Our prayers and heartfelt sympathy go out to Mrs. Jensen. May God watch over her and care for her, and may she daily remember the promise: "As thy days, so shall thy strength be."
    Dear Christian Friends, We lived on a small farm. The day my husband died we had been out picking up corn. He had had heart trouble for years. He went to the barn with the horses and I went to the house to try to make something that I thought he could eat. When he did not come for supper when I expected him, I went out to the barn there he lay in front of the manger. I called a doctor as soon as I could. He told me if I had had him in a hospital, and the doctors and nurses waiting around, there was not a thing they could have done. The Lord gives and the Lord takes. I have the hope of meeting him again where there is no pain or death. He has only gone a little before. Sincerely, Mrs. J.P. Jensen, Rt. 2 Dodge Center, Minn.8

    WILMA:Did you tell them it was chicken salad?

  • Note*: FROM: Christmas Letter, 1996
    1996 Greetings from Lillie Ann Stivers.
    Dear Friends,
    It is Christmas once more and I am remembering deep country snows encompassing our bustle of excitement in the charming home of my childhood. At night, thousands of glittering sparkles shone from the glow of kerosene lanterns reflecting on snow bordered windows. Lying warm and snug in my featherbed, I recall awaking to the cinnamon-ginger fragrance of cookies and fruit soup or Mama's thin, round Danish pancakes stacked in great mounds waiting to be rolled with butter and brown sugar filling. Once positioned, I never moved or the toasty warmth of the bed sheets changed instantly to icy cold. Mama waited to call us until after a log in our wood burning cook stove warmed crisp kitchen air. On a very special Christmas evening, the treat accompanying Dad's Bible reading might be an orange. How sweet to recall those treasured memories of family gatherings around our big oak table where we first learned the peace and joy only Christ the Savior brings.
    Located on the gravel road running straight north from Wasioja, is Midway, our second farm. Caroline and Ruth were the oldest. Walter and I were born at this homestead. Danish was often spoken at thome. Wasioja boasted a Methodist, and our Baptist Church where Sunday Services alternated between Danish and English. Social life advanced wherever our feet or the team practically transported us. We walked to Wasioja school, although Ned, our "once upon a time" pony factored in until he caught stragnles and Dad removed him to circumvent loosing the team. On Sundays, church families that drove, tethered or stabled in nearby neighbor barns. No telephone, no automobile, no electricity, and no running water made kerosene lanterns, baths and even apples as the main fruit, take on important proporations. This was an era of neighborly dependence for fellowship, emergencies and shared labor.
    Oh how I wanted a doll buggy. Caroline and Ruth played without, so that determined no buggy for me. Fair, after all, was fair. Walter and I rigged up this interesting conveyance for devised toys, cats and even Walter on one or two occasions. Ths contraption shattered, never to be rebuilt, during his top-over, nightmare spill. That year, I vividly recall receiving my precious doll bed and doll from under the church Christmas tree. As our family filed in, I spotted it right away. Through the entire service, my absorbed mind speculated whose magnificent gift that doll and bed would become. Maybe and probably not vacillated, with hope somewhat slim. Joy of Joys, Dad and Mother had placed it for me. With awe and wonderment I carried the coveted bundle home. On Christmas Day, Grandma's present was a hand-sewn cap, cape, stockings and dress for my beautiful doll. I was enraptured. What a Christmas!
    Our church tree was enchanting with its painted metal clips holding burning, tiny candles. Our first store bought Christmas trimmings and tree stand came with a shyly suggested purchase from a schoolteacher when our room's decorations were dissembled. I cannot remember the particulars but the results extended holiday regalia to include beautiful Christmas windows. The Christmas panolpy greatly extended festive dimensions. For many years we carefully packed and unpacked these treasures. Before its stand arrived, our family tree--really a branch from a pasture fir--was a sort-of table centerpiece. Mother held it in place by pushing table-board leaves together. Stringing popcorm was fun but time consuming. Some of the ropes ended short. Dad wanted the Christ Child the tree emphasis. A commemorative star shown down upon Sunday School pictures carefully cut and lovingly hung. Apples and nuts were popular to tie on.
    The gathering together of family connections found Dad's side missing in Christmas conviviality. He left rural Wisconsin, and two brother's families, for better farming in Minnesota. I recall exciting summer treks; but farming with cows demanding daily care made Wisconsin visits few and far between.
    Grandmother Svendsen, a dear kindred spirit, contributed felicity and wonderful culinary skills. Mother's father, Grandpa Svendsen, died of pneumonia when Mother was two. My capable Grandma managed their farm, two miles north of Hay field, with the aid of hired hands. The Ben Shelsteds and descendents (also Danish) one of grandma's helpers, have remained close family friends for over 100 years. Grandma used to tell me of her frustration and hardship with legal problems of Minnesota widowhood in earlier days. The governing agency restricted her use of their (Grandpa and Grandma's) funds. Grandmother was allowed to purchase either shoes or overshoes for Uncle Chris and mother. Grandmother was of the opinion children required both pairs to trudge the rural miles to school--especially considering Minnesota winters. When I was very young, Christmas included Grandma's parents, who came from Denmark soon after Grandpa's death.
    I remember christmas dinners with Uncle Chris, my beloved Aunt Millie and our cousins, Wilfred and Valdemar. We children rediscovered our gifts for each other's enjoyment. News of neighbors and our world was shared. Christ was honored as we reviewed His birth and purpose. I remember the glorious feeling of Christmas, a secure gladness of loved ones gathered to rejoice. Having company was important. Perhaps the long dark nights and wintry desolation heightened our festive spirits. I know the preparation and anticipation did. It felt wonderful to give presents to those we loved. In summer, Dad paid us a penny a mustard plant pulled. Those precious pennies spent, drew deep wells of pleasure because we knew, if our heart of hearts, the importance our gifts would bring to the lives of the chosen. In later years, I became careful not to overly admire my sister Caroline's possessions for on several occasions she instantly gave them to me.
    Christmas dinner reflected farm bounty. We usually enjoyed stuffed chicken. Some years Mother raised geese for their feathers and down. When roast goose was on the menu, a second meat was offered because Dad's constitution could not tolerate the rich fowl. A replete bird demanded early rising. I can close my eyes and see Mother gently crumbing homemade bread over the great crock bowl on the kitchen table which doubled as a work counter. Oh, the aroma that drifted through our rooms as the skin turned crisp, deep amber from long, slow roasting. Mother had learned the art of regulating the wood-fueled Monarch. The exhaust pip that extended through the ceiling held a circular wire handle that turned to open and close an elevated damper. Adding the proper amount of wood at the right time entered into the expertise. Colorful cranberries, cooked with sugar and water until their skins popped, filled our pretty glass bowl. Potatoes, dug in the fall and stored in our root cellar, were mashed with rich milk and butter. Little imagination is necessary to recall the musty, earth-damp of the feared root cellar. Collecting vegetables was not a task I relished. Salads were commonly apple-nut concoctions, often with whipped cream. One popular vegetable was chips of steaming, buttered rutabaga lightly salted and peppered. I have often wondered how Mother found time to churn her own butter, make and sell cottage cheese and raise her family. The formula worked. She lived to be ninety-four. Pies, usually pumpkin or apple, were made the day before. So was the rice pudding. It was a task to seed the raisins which combined with boiled rice, sweetened milk, eggs and cinnamon before baking. My older sisters were more experienced with out-of-doors chores. This left me to help in the kitchen and around the house. Being the third child had, in my opinion, its advantages.
    Years later, as a young schoolmarm instructing lower grades, I recall one beautiful Christmas production, "When the bells Rang." Mother and Dad drove from our third farm, two miles west of Dodge Center, to join former neighbors and friends in the Wasioja Baptist Church for the community's annual pageant. I don't know if it was the many hours spent creating costumes, the fun break from regular school subjects or admiring the splendid performance of my little troupers, but this long ago evening holds my most memorable Christmas program experience today.
    Ring on, O bells in the steeples
    In honor of Jesus' birth'
    Let the music of your message
    encircle all the earth.
    Sing it on Christmas morning,
    The grand old song again,
    "Glory to God in the highest!"
    "Peace and Good will to men."

    Merry Christmas with love to one and all, Lillie Ann Stivers

    LILLIE: We had an awful lot of fun. As soon as the corn got out of the corn crib, then you know, that was our good playhouse. Walter always wanted a separate playhouse for him.
