General Notes:

[Source: TOM MULVANEY'S TREE.FTW]

At the age of 23 yrs, left Pultz in the province of Prusia and came to America, landing at Philadelphia where he was at once sold to pay his passage - about $80.00. After serving his master for 3 years he began work for himself and purchased a farm in the fertile Northumberland valley where he lived for a short time and then died, leaving his wife and 5 children (Catherine, Erhart, Christina, Conrad, and Valentine.) The stone farm is situated on the south side of Lehigh Hill 2 miles south of Bethleham, in Lower Sagamore township, Northampton Co.
When the father died young ERHART found himself loaded down with responsibilities as fall to few young men. On the death of his mother he purchased from the heirs the farm where he had spent the best years of his life. Singularly enough, this farm which cost him so much hard work never profited him a cent as he shortly afterwords sold it for $6000.00. and did not receive anything because of a title mixup.
Feeling so discouraged at the state of his affairs at this time and having a wife, SUSANNA KIDD whom he had married 17 yrs before, and 9 children, he left home on a horseback and came to Dansville, New York, to settle. Shortly afterwords he brought his family and was accompanied by 18 people. For over 2 yrs. he kept a tavern in the village. He then turned his attention to farming and at one time owned nearly 1,500 acres in Sparta, New York.
He leaves behind him an honorable life, not all of which was spent in selfish purposes, but a large share devoted to the service of God whom he recognized as the one to whom he owed all his success in life. He was the father of 16 children: Benjamin, Daniel, Joseph, Samuel, John, George, Elizabeth (Betsy) Wambold, Ana Maria (Polly ) Carney, Susan Johns, Hiram, Sarah (Sally) Traxler, Henry, Mary Ann Strong, Owen, David, and Nelson.

1. Probably born in Neubalach, Schwartzwald, Wurttemberg, Germany
Possible birth date: 27 May 1742; Probable birth date: 27 April 1741; One source shows year of birth as 1760 in Pennsylvania, which is obviously in error.
Some sources show born Kleinimstadt, Wurtemburg, Germany.

2. Came to America on ship Minerva (Broderbund WFT, Vol. 1, Ed. 1, Tree #4973, Date of Import 31 January 1997)

3. Source: Strassburger and Hinke, "Pennsylvania German Pioneers", Vol. I, pp. 720-722:
The ship "Minerva", which departed from Rotterdam and stopped at Portsmouth for provisions, carried 247 passengers and was captained by Thomas Arnott, Master. It arrived at the port of Philadelphia on 10 October 1768. On the same day, Johann Conrad Rau and George Adam Rau signed the required oath of abjuration before Samuel Shoemaker Esq. and Isaac Jones Esq., Mayor.

4. Susan Johanson says:
John Conrad RAU came to America on a ship called the Minerva. He landed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania October 10, 1768. He was one of 247 passengers to travel from Rotterdam, through Portsmouth, England, to America. His name is number #57 on the list. Passenger #58 is listed as Georg Adam RAU. I wonder if this is a brother, cousin, uncle or even father? Upon arrival in America, Conrad RAU (as he made himself known in the new land) served a three year indenture to pay his passage. Then he began saving for land. He bought some land in Northampton Co., Pennsylvania, married and fathered six children. When his family was still young, he died. The family lost the property due to a mismanagement of land titles.

5. Ida Rau Arnold, "History of the Rau Family, 20 August 1958, says:
"In the year of 1764 there were four Rau brothers who came from Wurtenburg, Germany. They took the oath of allegiance or citizenship to the British in 1768, at Philadelphia. Their names were Conrad Rau, Johann Conrad Rau, John Conrad Rau and Johannes Adam Rau. It seems to me these boys' mother might have been named Conrad, as all three had that name."

NOTE: This information contradicts other information on Johan Conrad Rau (in particular, that of Susan Johanson).

6. Worked as an indentured servant for three years to pay passage (Broderbund WFT, Vol. 1, Ed. 1, Tree #4973, Date of Import 31 January 1997)

7. DEATH: Death date taken from county administration records. John Conrad RAU died without leaving a will. His estate was administered by his eldest son Erhard. His widow Margareth signed her rights of administration over to "my son, Erhard RAU." (Estate file #2555, Register of Wills, Northampton Co. courthouse, Easton, PA)

8. One source (Ida Rau Arnold) gives year of death as 1803 (Ida Rau Arnold, "History of the Rau Family", 20 August 1958, p. 2)

9. According to listings of tombstone inscriptions, Johann Conrad Rau is buried in the old cemetery at Friedensville in Upper Saucon Twp., Lehigh Co., PA. The inscription on his tombstone says he was born in Kleinemstadt, Germany.

At one time he possessed over 1,500 acres of land which was later divided among his sons and daughters. Fifteen of the children married and have descendants living. One child when a boy of fifteen years, was killed by the falling of a tree. Mrs. Sally Ann Traxler and Mrs. Mary Strong of Sparta and Mrs. Susan Johns of Danville are the daughters who still survive. (Portions missing from copy) The descendants of Erhard Rau are estimated to be over 300 strong.

Death of Erhardt Rau

Erhardt Rau, a well known pioneer of this section, died on Saturday last at the residence of his son-in-law James Stong, in Sparta, at the advanced age of 97 years. Mr. Rau was born at Lower Sagamore, Northhampton county, Pa. Sept. 3d, 1787, and came to Dansville, then in the town of Sparta, when forty years of age, making the journey on horseback. He soon after returned for his family. After keeping tavern for two years he bought a farm in the town which he faithfully tilled and added to from time to time, until his possessions were goodly. His wife, whose maiden name was Susannah Kidd, died some fourteen years ago. Their union blessed by sixteen children, only three of whom preceded them to the other world. The living are the following well known persons: Benjamin, Daniel, Joseph, John, George, Owen, Hiram, David E., Mrs. John Wampole, Mrs. Hugh Carney, Mrs. George H. Johns, Mrs. James Stong, Mrs. Edward Traxler. There are about two hundred descendants of the sturdy couple who made this section their home two generations ago, and lived beyond the usual limits of life, to be blessed in worldly goods and in children to the fourth generation. Mr. Rau was one of the first officers of St. John's Lutheran church of Sparta which was organized in 1837, a church edifice being erected three years later. His associate officers were Peter Kuhn, Bernard Hamsher, Peter Traxler, Michael Klein and John Kohler.
The funeral was conducted on Tuesday by Rev. Mr. McCutcheon.

General Notes:

[Source: The Hannam Genealogy, compiled by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.]

Below is a transcription by Mary Rau (January 1951) of a letter from Annie Rau Patterson, 6 November 1937:

"Grandmother Rau was a Luckenbach and married Conrad Rau who was a brother of Simon Rau* the druggist on Main Street (Bethlehem). Grandmother Rau went to Moravian School when she was a girl and was quite a musician. Her parents were Moravians and she belonged to the church on Main Street. When I was a little girl she would take me with her to church.
Her parents were farmers and lived where the Bethlehem Steel works now stand and that is where she was born.
The old Luckenbach grist mill was built by Grandmother's brothers, by two of them. She had six sisters and seven (or 2) brothers and all the Luckenbachs in Bethlehem belong to that family."

* Notes from John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 12 April 1998:
1. Apparently, the original letter was hand-written and difficult to read. That, combined with Grandma Mary Rau's notoriously poor typing, probably accounts for the punctuation (some of which I tried to correct!) and the question about the number of Catharina Luckenbach's brothers.

2. Simon Rau was indeed a druggist in Bethlehem. However, as far as I can tell from extant records, Simon was NOT a brother of Conrad. Simon was a son of Conrad's brother, Valendin.

Also known as Catherina Luckenback (From Susan Johanson, 21 Mar 1997)

In 1850 Benjamin Rau, age 39 a farmer, was living at Springwater, Livingston Co., NY with his second wife, Huldah age 24, and nine children; John W. age 16 a laborer, Mariette age 14, Martha age 12, Harriet M. age 10, Benjamin F. age 8, Erhart S. age 6, Sarah C. age 4, David J. age 1 and Margaret E. age 1. Also living in their household was Hiram Rau, age 27 a farmer (probably Benjamin's brother, counted twice in the census).

Benjamin married Hulda Roberts, daughter of David Cranmore 20 and Martha Stackhouse,20 after 14 Sep 1849. Hulda was born in 1817,20 died before 1857 in Sparta, Livingston, New York, and was buried in Rau Cemetery, Sparta, Livingston, New York.20 Another name for Hulda was Huldah Cranmer.20

General Notes:

! It is possible, entirely probable, but not provable, that Hulda Roberts RAU died as a complication of childbirth after the birth of her son Sidney, who was born in 1854 in Sparta, Livingston County, New York.

----------------------------------

This source indicates Huldah's last name was Cranmer or Cranmore and a sister of Benjamin's first wife, Margaret. The Roberts surname probably indicates a previous marriage.

The records state that David RAU, twin to Margaret Elizabeth RAU, died in infancy. His mother also died in the year of his birth. I believe that Margaret CRANMORE RAU delivered the first twin, Margaret Elizabeth RAU, and
died trying to deliver the second twin, David RAU. At this point, April 1996, I have no proof other than my personal belief that this is so.

Possibly /probably born 9 January 1817 (Research by Cindy Long).

Frank Madison Rau (d. 6/24/1907 48y7m18d) possibly a son of Nathan and Elizabeth (Research by Cindy Long)

GENEALOGY NOTE:
It has not been conclusively proven that Nathan Rau (1818-1862) was a son of J. Conrad and Catharine (Luckenbach) Rau. The baptismal record of Nathan at St. Paul's Union (aka. Blue) Church in Upper Saucon Twp., Lehigh Co., PA gives the names of Nathan's parents as "John and Catharina". However, the sponsors at the baptism were "Peter Rau and his wife, Rahel", who have yet to be identified. If the "John and Catharina" in the church record were actually J. Conrad and Catharine (Luckenbach) Rau, then who is this unknown Peter Rau and how was he related?

Also, the short biography of Conrad and Catharine (Luckenbach) Rau in "Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of The Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania" by Jordan, Green and Ettinger (1905), Vol. I, p. 263, which names all of their children, does not mention Nathan as one of them.

The above evidence indicates that Nathan should probably be deleted as a son of J. Conrad and Catharine Rau. However, he has been left in the database for the time being, pending further research and proof of his actual parentage.

Noted events in his life were:

• Fact 1: 21 Possibly /probably born 9 January 1817

• Fact 2: 21 Frank Madison Rau (d. 6/24/1907 48y7m18d) possibly a son of Nathan and Elizabeth

• Fact 4: 21 Baptism: St. Paul Blue

• Fact 5: 21 Cindy Long also lists date of birth as 9 Jan 1816 on her spreadsheet

• Fact 6: 21 Cindy Long identifies Nathan's parents as John Rau and Catharina (spreadsheet)

• Fact 7: 21 Buried at St. Paul Blue by Rev. William Rath (Cindy Long - spreadsheet)

Adam Rau and John Adam Rau.

General Notes:

[Source: Dale Berger, Rau_From_Dale_Berger.GED]

Possibly named John A. Rau or John Adam Rau (Cindy Long).

Adam Rau was married to Ellen Gangawere by Pastor F. Schultz. Their marriage announcement appeared in the 10 July 1851 edition of the "Jugend Freund" newspaper in Allentown, PA.

In the 1870 census, Adam Rau, age 40 a carpenter, was living in the second ward of Bethlehem, PA with his mother, Catharine Rau age 79, and sister, Caroline Opp age 50. The head of the household was listed as Milton H. Derr, age 29 a sewing machine agent, who was living there with his wife, Sarah C. age 26 and one son, Edward age 6. However, the real estate, valued at $6,000, was apparently owned by Adam Rau. Adam's wife and children were not listed in this household. His wife may have died before 1870 and the children may have been living with guardians. It is also possible that Adam was visiting in Bethlehem on the day the census was taken and his wife and children could be listed elsewhere in the census.
(1870 census, Northampton Co., PA, Bethlehem, p. 293, house #155)

In Union/West End Cemetery, Allentown, PA, there is a tombstone for a "J. Adam Rau, born 10 June 1825 and died 8 January 1906". Buried next to him is a "Susanna Rau, born 14 December 1838 and died 6 February 1910", who is probably his wife. This may or may not be Adam Rau, son of J. Conrad Rau.

[Source: Dale Berger, Rau_From_Dale_Berger.GED]

GENEALOGY NOTE:
At least one secondary source shows that Henrich (aka. Henry) Rau, born in 1817, was the first child and eldest son of Valentin and Elizabeth (Fenner) Rau. However, it has not been conclusively proven that he was their child and the following evidence indicates that he was most likely from another, yet identified, Rau family:

1. Henrich (aka. Henry) is not listed among the known children of Valentin and Elizabeth (Fenner) Rau in the short biography of Valentin's family in "Historic Homes and Institutions and Genealogical and Personal Memoirs of The Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania" by Jordan, Green and Ettinger (1905), Vol. I, pp. 263-264.

2. The marriage and obituary records of Bethlehem Moravian Church show that Simon Rau, not Henrich, was the eldest son of Valentin Rau. Simon Rau was born in 1818.

The above evidence indicates that Henrich should probably be deleted as a son of Valentin and Elizabeth. However, he has been left in the database for the time being, pending further research and proof of his actual parentage.

Noted events in his life were:

• Alt. Birth: 1817. Pennsylvania

Henrich married Annie Marie in Shoenersville Lutheran Church, Hanover Twp., Lehigh Co., PA. Annie was born before 1832.

"Simon Rau married Lucy Ann Luckenbach, of Goshen, Ohio. Simon was born in 1818 in Lower Saucon Township, where his parents lived at that time, later moving to Pittston, Pa. At the age of 7 years he was brought to Bethlehem by Dr. Freytag to make his home with his family and help him in the Drug Store, which he owned. It was later known as Rau's Drug Store, and was the first Drug Store in the United States. It was started 2 years after Bethlehem was founded as a settlement in 1741. In 1743 Dr. Frederick Otto, one of the first settlers from Germany, started the Drug Store and later Dr. Freytag, the fourth owner, bought the store. It was in 1825 that Dr. Freytag brought Simon to Bethlehem, and in 1870 Simon took over the Drug Store with his brother, David. Simon's son, Eugene and David's son, Robert, conducted the Drug Store under the name of Rau's Drug Store for 65 years. The drug store was visited by George and Martha Washington and many other notables while they were visitors in Bethlehem."

Simon Rau was the eldest of ten children of Valentine and Elizabeth (Fenner) Rau, and was born in Hanover Township, in the neighborhood of Schoenersville, Lehigh Co., PA, April 24, 1818. From 1825 to 1830 he attended the Moravian Parochial School at Bethlehem, PA, and then entered the employ of Dr. Eberhard Freytag in the only drug store then existing in the town. This store had been managed as the property of the congregation from 1752 to 1790, first in the "Bell House", and then in the building at the corner of Main Street and Church Alley, successively by John Frederick Otto and John Matthew Otto. Dr. Eberhard Freytag took charge of this store in 1790, and in 1796 bought the stock from the Moravian congregation. Simon Rau in turn bought the stock from Dr. Freytag in 1839, and this drug store was the scene of his business activity for the rest of his life. As partners he successively associated with himself, his brother David Rau in 1849, his nephew Robert Rau in 1860, and his son Eugene A. Rau in 1870, the firm name being Simon Rau & Co. Since 1889 he was not in active connection with the firm.

He was one of the organizers of the Bethlehem Home Missionary Society in 1849, and its Treasurer from 1862 to 1904. He was a member of the Board of Elders from 1866 to 1902. He was President of the Widow's Society from 1872 to 1901. From 1857 to 1901 he was Secretary and Treasurer of the Board of Almoners. He served several terms in Town Council, and in one way or another was in constant touch with many enterprises which have had to do with the upbuilding of the Bethlehems.

On May 22, 1842 he married Miss Lucy Ann Luckenbach, daughter of Abraham and Rosina (Heckewelder) Luckenbach. He died August 9, 1910.

Brother Rau became a life member of the Historical Society in 1868 and ever took an active interest in the affairs of the Society.

It is possible that Marietta is not the twin of Erhard Selmser RAU. An alternate birthdate for Marietta RAU is 1841. However, according to the 1860 Sparta Census, Marietta was 23 years old, a spinster school teacher living with her grandmother Martha CRANMORE. So, I believe that the 1837 birthyear is correct, making her a twin to Erhard Selmser RAU. There are LOTS of twins in the family!

Surviving her are two of her four children, a son, Jay of Scottsburg, and a daughter, Mrs. James Stewart, Silver Creek, with whom she was staying at the time of her death. Also ten grand-children, 23 great-grandchildren, and 11great-great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.

General Notes:

LDW was born on Webster homestead on Marrowback, Town of Conesus. (Buildings on the farm--2 houses and 2 barns--now gone, either burned or razed. Farm now part of St. Michael's Mission property. Farm was located one lot west of ? and on both sides of east- west road extending west of Marrowback Road.

LDW was a farmer until 1923 when he and family moved to South Livonia. He drove truck several years hauling railroad ties. In the early Depression years he built the first mobile hammer grist mill in the area.

He drove truck for the Livingston County Highway Dept. from the middle 1930's until he retired about 1958. During this time he developed and invented various devices for trucks and highway equipment. He secured US patents on two.

In the early period (1910's and early 20's) he played violin for various activities. He had a dance orchestra which included his sister Susan Webster, Charlie Price and Frank Roberts. He also played trombone.

From "The First Mobile Field Grinder in the Livonia Area" by Lawrence J. Webster, March 8, 1969

From the Foreward:
After the master copies for the accompanying article had been out, I showed the first rough draft to Walter Holmes of South Livonia, New York, who filled me in on this story.

Walt is a lifetime neighbor of the Webster family, both in South Livonia and also on Marrowback Hill in the Town o f Conesus, N.Y., when both families lived there.

The Webster farm was just west of the vineyard and wine cellar, which is now part of the Divine Word Mission property. There were two houses and two barns. All of the buildings have either burned or have been torn down.

The John Holmes family (Walt's father) lived on the Partridge Road at a location near the present Town of Livonia Water Supply Dam.

After Walt finished school in 1915, he worked for Ed Mulvaney, who managed the vineyard, farm and winery then owned by the Catholic Diocese of Rochester. He also worked for my father. Lawrence D. Webster , on the Webster farm, until he was drafted into the army in 1918 during World War I. When he returned, he applied for the appointment as rural mail carrier, a job he held until her retired.

L.D. Webster worked the farm until 1923, when our family moved to South Livonia. About the following year, the large lower barn burned.

Walt recollects that in the period between 1915 and 1918, L.D. mounted a burr type grist mill on a farm wagon, along with a car motor (perhaps a Merz). This setup he hauled with a team of horses to nearby farms, such as Don Payne's and Durkee's, in Marrowback Hill.

This, Walt believes was the first mobile feed grinder in the area. He thinks that the mill burned in the barn fire. I remember the burr mill, but not the set up.

The First Mobile Feed Grinder in the Livonia Area

In the early Depression years of the thirties, Lawrence D. Webster of South Livonia developed the first traveling grist mill in the area. We are not sure whether it was entirely his own idea, or whether he had read of the initial use of such mobile mills in the Midwest.

At any rate, he borrowed money on his life insurance policy and bought a Sears & Roebuck hammer mill which he bolted on a Model-T Ford truck.

Noted events in his life were:

• Fact 1: member of Masonic Lodge No. 778 of Livonia

• Fact 2: member of South Livonia Congregational Church

• Fact 3: buried South Livonia Cemetery

Children from this marriage were:

Storm Stressed.

Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Rau, the latter a daughter of Rev. and Mrs. 0. A. Melchoir, had a terrifying experience on Wednesday of last week. Rev. Melchoir is a graduate of Gettysburg College and Seminary and his wife was Miss Mary Montfort, of this place.
Their daughter and her husband live at Springtown and at 2 o'clock Wednesday morning an electric storm passed over their residence. The lightning struck their home and started fire in five different places, including the matterss on which they slept. The bolt entered the house along the telephone or radio wires and completely destroyed them.
Mr. and Mrs. Rau, sleeping in a front room, were awakened by the crash, and awoke to see fire dancing about their bed, while other fires were burning in several places on the woodwork of the room. Extinguishing the flames, they made an investigation of the damage done and found that the woodwork about the doors had been ripped away, a hole torn in the wall back of the bed, a bedpost completely shattered and telephone and radio wires melted. Three rooms on the first floor and two on the second floor had been visited by the lightning, which had wrought damage everywhere. Three children in a rear room were not harmed.

The Department of Public Speaking is attracting the attention of parents, and has been favorably commented upon and strongly endorsed by the mothers of the members of the graduating class. Few High School pupils have the natural ability, or experience, to speak in public, and yet this is one of the most desirable accomplishments. The work done along this line during the past season by Miss Mary Melchior, instructor in the Department of Public Speaking, is deserving of the highest praise. Members of the Freshman and Senior Classes have had weekly lessons throughout the season, and every day some members of the Sophomore, Junior and Senior Classes have appeared on the platform and taken part in the chapel exercises

One of the oldest and most venerable members of the family passed away in the person of Mrs. 0. H. Melchor, wife of the late Rev, 0. H. Melchor, well known Springtown Lutheran clergyman. A son of Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Kiser was the other death which took place.
Nuptial events were recorded when Miss Katie Worman became the bride of Clyde Beer, and Mr. and Mrs. Milton Melchor were united in marriage..
With Oliver Melchor, Ferndale. who was elected president, presiding, various committees were appointed. Miss Eveilyn Beer was chosen secretary. To serve on the program committee President Melchor appointed Mrs. Hobart Myers, Anna Melchor and Mrs. Elwood B. Melchor.
Elwood B. Melchor, Ravid (sic) Rau and Mrs Walter Wolfinger will serve on the sport's committee. Announcement was also made that Mr. and Mrs. Samuel L Shaddinger, Curley Hill Road, will entertain the clan next year on the third Thursday in August.
Greetings in which they expressed their desire to be present were received from Montfort Melchor and William Melchor, both of whom found it impossible to attend yesterday's reunion.
The business meeting opened with the entire group singing "America", followed by a prayer by Mrs. Rau. Mrs. Wolfinger, the hostess, gave a short "welcome" reading.
A song by Caroline and Helen Shull: a piano duet by Harold Landes and Richard Shaddinger; recitations by Buddy and Doris Myers, and a solo by Helen Kanusky were numbers of the program which were well received. Nine-year-old Jean Bader, gave several short exhibition dances.
Speaking briefly on the charm and spiritual value of family reunions, William Taggert urged those present, to keep up the family bonds and associations.

What Our Readers Think

Contest Editor,
Dear Sir:
Enjoying the Intelligencer as I do. there still are improvements and additions that I think would produce an even better paper.

For us old folks, as well as the new Bucks County resIdents, we do not know enough, or appreciate what we do know about our History. My late father was an active member of the Historical Society but we know so little about it today. I would suggest that about twice a week an article be written about some item on exhibit at the museum. If not too expensive, a picture would help, but I do know that is not always possible. On alternate days, or once a week, an article on some historic place in the County. Incidently the upper part of the Country is always somewhat neglected!

For your own benefit, a tour of this section with sample copies and request for subscriptions might bring results.

Request that all advertisements include both address and telephone no. would be of great help. There have been several advertisements in which I have been interested but being a widow of small income I don't feel I can afford to pay the calls to the lower part of the County when I am not sure of any resuits.

Towards spring write ups of the especially lovely rides in the County, could be of help to folks unf amiliar with our lovely places. Small pen sketches of directions could be given.

Pictures of unsightly and negIected places could be published and of course identification not given, but the caption "Do you OWN this?" Many would hustle to cut THEIR weeds and mend the fence so you WOULDN'T take a picture of their place.

I most heartily agree with an editorial printed some weeks ago that all papers would do a great service if they stopped headlining spectacular divorces and actresses that specialize in divorces.

My only real criticism of the intelligencer is that too often it misses the mail which makes my copy often TWO days late.

Although Mary Rau was the only grandparent I ever knew (her husband died in 1946 and my French grandparents both died while I was very young), I sadly know very little about her. She died in a nursing home when I was in my early twenties and living in San Antonio (August 1975).

I have fond memories of visiting her in Pennsylvania every summer. I remember the coal stove she used for cooking, the grandfather clock (my sister tells me it was a mantle clock) at the bottom of the stairs, and the freezing cold upstairs bedrooms (I must have been there during the winter as well). I remember hating the canned peas she always served but loving her scrambled eggs made with milk. Until she finally got indoor plumbing, I remember sleeping with a bedpan under the bed. When she would visit us in New Jersey, I remember her watching game shows on television (boring!) while darning our socks (much to my mother's chagrin!). My first and only train ride was with her as we travelled from New Jersey to Pennsylvania one summer.

Apparently, my mother and grandmother never got along very well and basically tolerated each other but I never knew the reason. My mother told me once, bitterly it seemed, that her mother was always 'sickly' while my grandfather was alive but seemed to miriculously improve in the years after his death. Perhaps my mother harbored some resentment over this, I do not know.

I remember she always had a beautiful yard with multiple flower beds she lovingly tended. I beleve she actually won some local awards for her flowers. Mary Rau was fairly vigorous about writing letters to the editor (see above). She was also a member of the Grange and active in flower clubs (see above).

In the year or two before she died and after I moved to San Antonio, she apparently was showing the early signs of Alzheimer's. In those days, of course, we called it "senility". I know that on at least one occasion she started herself on fire by backing up to the stove she had forgotten was lit. Sadly, she was becoming a danger to herself so my parents and her step-children, David Rau and Agnes Kline, decided to put her into a nursing home. She was there for only a few months before her death. Her minister was at her side and apparently praying with her, when she sat up, smiled, and then peacefully passed away. I assume the pastor related this to my mother who passed it on to me sometime after Mary Rau's death.

I do know that my grandmother was interested in genealogy. In fact, one of the first sources I had available to me when I started with my own genealogical efforts was from her. Like most genealogical attempts, including my own, there were some blanks and errors but it gave me a good starting point. She was extremely proud of her father, O.H. Melchior (a popular and long-serving Lutheran pastor in Bucks County, Pennsylvania), her mother (who lived in Gettysburg during the 1863 battle and who saw Abraham Lincoln give his Gettysburg Address), and her three brothers.

During the last year or so of her life, Mary Rau shared a home with an old friend (beau?) named Walter Unangst (1891 - 1982). They lived in a home in Richlandtown (near Quakertown), Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Mary Rau actually died in a nursing home after it became apparent she could no longer care for herself.

Agnes Rau Kline was a school nurse at Palisades High School in Kintnersville, Pennsylvania, for a number of years. I do not know when she started there or when she retired but I do know she was the nurse during my years at Palisades (1968 - 1971). The Doylestown Daily Intelligencer dated 16 April 1955 lists her as school nurse for the Palisades School District.

While I was painting a house in Springtown, Pennsylvania, "Aunt Agnes" is the one who came to tell me my mother had been in an accident and had been rushed to the hospital in Doylestown. During my mother's convalescence and until her death in 1982, Agnes was a source of strength for her and helped out a great deal. She moved to Florida around 1973 or 1974 and lived there for several years but returned to Pennsylvania sometime (date unknown) before my mother died.

She never remarried after her husband, Hollis, died in 1954. At some point she moved from the farm she and Hollis owned and lived in a small apartment over the Post Office in Springtown. Sometime, around 1973 or 1974, she moved to Florida but returned to Pennsylvania where she lived until her death. She may have had other residences before that time but I am not aware of them.

For a period of time in the late 1960s and early 1970s (perhaps longer), she had a "special friend" in Joseph Fink, a former elementary principal in the Palisades School District. I know very little of Mr. Fink other than he seemed nice and gave me some oil paints of his as a starter kit for my art box.

I have only the fondest memories of her - a sweet, dear lady.

Springtown, Nov. 8-Miss Agnes Isabel Rau, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Rau of this place, became the bride of Hollis Kline, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Kline, Kintnersviile, at a pretty wedding Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock in the Durham church.

Autumn leaves and chrysanthemums adorned the church.
The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, was becomingly gowned in white satin, with veil of tulle caught at the sides with orange blossoms. She carried white chrysanthemums.
Miss Gladys Myers, Bethlehem, and Miss Anna Melchior, Springtown, cousins of the bride, were the bridal attendants, They wore gowns of maroon and green velvet, respectively, with matching turbans, and carried bronze chrysanthemums.
David Rau, brother of the bride, was best man. William Witte and Russell Hess, Riegelsville, were ushers.
After a reception held at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Kline left on a southern wedding trip by motor. They will make their home on the Kline grape farm at Kintnersville.
The bride is well known in Bethlehem, having graduated from St. Luke's Hospital Training School with the class of 1931, after her graduation from Springfield High School.

General Notes:

John and Eliza Kline were living with daughter, Susan (age 25), son Hollis (age 18) and son Larue (age 9) in the 1920 Census. They were living next to Adolph and Emilie Hoffman in Nockamixon Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Source: 1930 US Federal Census, http://www.ancestry.com]

There was a Hollis "Kleine" who was living with his parents and a younger brother during the 1930 census. Hollis was probably the son of John (age 65, farmer) and Eliza Kleine (age 63) who were living in Nockamixon Township, Bucks County, Pennsylvania on property valued at $18,000 in 1930. Hollis, age 28, was living with them as well as a younger son, Larue, age 19. Hollis and LaRue were listed as farm helpers, probably their father's farm. The future wife of Hollis (if this is our Hollis), Agnes Rau, was still living with her parents, Floyd and Mary (stepmother) Rau during the 1930 census.

"My mom [Joanne Rau Kline] told me he died from a blood disorder. They think from mixing chemicals for the farm."

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Source: Telephone conversation with Henry Hannam, 12 November 2012]

Henry Hannam thought that Hollis possibly died from the bite of a poisonous insect or spider at the fruit stand where he used to deliver asparagus. Henry (Hank) thought it may have been a spider found on bananas from South America and that Hollis died within a day or two after the bite. However, he was not positive about the cause of death. He also remembered Hollis as "somewhat garrulous and prone to profanity".

Noted events in his life were:

• Occupation: 50 Hollis was a fruit farmer.

• Alt. Birth: Abt 1902. 141 Pennsylvania

General Notes:

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., updated 11 March 2009]

Born a little more than a month after the Bolshevik execution of Tsar Nicholas and his family and shortly before the end of World War I, Mary Katharyn Rau (Buckley) (Hannam) lived her entire life in a world threatened by Communism As a young child, she lived through the Roaring Twenties, Prohibition and the Great Depression. However, living in a rural Pennsylvania setting, she was probably little affected by either. As a young adult, she witnessed Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal and as a young mother, the horrors of World War II. She also saw the Korean War, the Cuban Missile Crisis, the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the Vietnam War, the moon landing, the resignation of Richard M. Nixon and the Falklands War. Through it all, she remained a devout Christian wife and mother. She raised her family as members of the Methodist Church even though she herself had been raised a Lutheran. Her grandfather, Oliver H. Melchior, was a beloved Lutheran pastor in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She lived long enough to see several of her grandchildren (Henry's three children, Benjamin, Matthew and Sarah Hannam; Becky's son, Justin Thomas; and Christy's first child, Sarah Wright) but not long enough to see the collapse of the Soviet Union or the Gulf War. Nor, thankfully, did she live long enough to witness the shenanigans of Bill Clinton and his lovely wife! Sadly for my own children, she had already been dead over three years before the birth of my first son, John-Pierre Hannam, Jr.

First married to Henry Albin Buckley--father of her first son, Henry (born 23 December 1941). According to Mary Susanna Melchior Rau, Katharyn and Henry divorced, remarried, and then divorced again. Anecdotes and periodic family conversations indicate that her first husband was abusive to her and Henry and was probably an alcoholic.

Katharyn married Pierre Hannam on 14 February 1953 but they also claimed to have been married in October 1952 in Maryland. This fluidity of their marriage date probably had something to do with my birth on 6 August 1953 (you do the math)! In a letter to me dated sometime before 14 February 1978, Katharyn "fessed up" and told me the true story (see the excerpt from this letter under Marriage Notes for Pierre and Katharyn).

Katharyn (called by some people Kitty) died on 22 May 1982 due to complications of her hospitalization at St. Luke's Hospital in Bethlehem. She had been in an accident in May 1972 in which she lost one kidney and was paralyzed for life. She almost died but was "brought back" in the emergency room at Doylestown hospital. For the rest of her life, she was a quadriplegic with total loss of her legs and almost total loss of her arms (she could type with one finger, move her arms, talk, etc.) but she was essentially confined to her home -- with occasional outings -- in the last years of her life. She was hospitalized at St. Luke's in 1982 for (initially) kidney dialysis. However, as her stay progressed, things got worse (due to lousy care and medical incompetence?). She got an infection, had to be placed on a respirator and other life support equipment, had her pericardium removed due to the infection (for a while she was in isolation) and finally died of cardiac arrest. My father, Pierre, and my sister (Christianne) informed her doctors that she had made a living will instructing that no "heroic" measures be taken to save her. Consequently, she was allowed to slip away.

According to an entry in Floyd Rau's New Indexed Bible (Revised Edition), Mary Katharyn Rau was educated at Springfield High School in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and at Moravian College in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. While a junior high school teacher at Bridgeton Junior High School in Bridgeton, New Jersey, she studied at Glassboro State College (presumably to receive her Master's Degree). In the mid-1960s, she had breast cancer but survived it. She was a well-loved schoolteacher in Pennsylvania from 1968 until her accident in May of 1972.


A number of her devoted friends and neighbors (Leah Kneebone, Laura Momich, Patty Murphy and many others) spent countless hours helping out at our home (bathing her, cleaning, cooking, visiting, etc.) for a number of years until her death. God bless them all for their tireless efforts to make her life more comfortable. Through it all, she was stoic and heroic, or pretended to be, and seldom shed a tear for her own plight. I still miss her after more than twenty-five years.

The Palisades school district board "approved the reassignment of Mrs. Kathryn R. Hannam (Springfield, language arts) to the position of reading specialist with no salary change ..."

-------------------------------------------------------------------

[Source: Doylestown Daily Intelligencer, Wednesday, November 10, 1971, page 17 (Palisades Tutors Visit Reading Clinic)]

Twenty-one Palisades reading tutors and aides, accompanied by Philip Swayne and Katharyn Hannam, administrative members, visited the Beaver College Reading Clinic.
The clinic is operated by Dr. Adeline Gomberg, professor of education and director of the reading clinic and serves as a training school for her senior education students.
The tutors observed Dr. Gomberg as she conducted her clinic, using specially selected students from the Philadelphia public schools.
Since Palisades is deeply involved in an individualized reading tutor program, the methods and media used by Dr. Gomberg were studied and evaluated with interest.
At present, reading aides and tutors are working individually with 124 students meeting them from two to five times weekly.

Helping the survivor
'Write about these wonderful women who care for me'

By KATHY CLARK
Intelligencer Writer

Tragedy strikes unexpectedly and without reason, either ending a life or shattering it beyond repair. We read now and then of the accident victim who survives, what has happened to his life, the courage he has shown, the spirit.
But what of the other lives that have touched, are touching or will touch the victim of a tragic accident? How does it affect them?
In the case of Katharyn Hannam, an Upper Bucks woman who was almost a statistic, a holiday fatality, tragedy has brought great pain and sadness to those who love the bright and spirited woman, but it has brought also a richness of feeling, a tenderness and a deeper appreciation for almost everything.
More than seven years ago Katharyn Hannam left her home in rural Springtown to attend a Memorial Day parade in Ferndale. It was the last time she was to walk out of that house or any other. When the returned to it months later it was as a paralytic, the victim of a devastating accident.
The mother of four who also taught fifth and sixth grade language arts at Springfield Elementary School had been busy preparing a picnic luncheon for her daughter Becky's 16th birthday party to go to see the Palisades High School Band perform in the holiday parade.
She called goodby to her husband Pierre who was bent over the green shoots in the garden outside the old farmhouse that snuggles against Route 212. In a very short time she lay trapped under the tire of a car, her spine crushed, never to walk again - indeed, perhaps not to live.
The doctors at Doylestown Hospital revived her twice when her heart stopped beating. When Pierre arrived at the hospital they would not even let him see her and they gave him no hope for her survival.
Survive she has, though, and if her body is imprisoned, it is obvious that per mind and spirit are not. There is a very special quality about the woman who welcomes so many visitors to the bed-sitting room on the first floor of her 150-year-old farmhouse, once her grandfather's home.
Gray bangs fringe her round face and dance above her fiery brown eyes as she pronounces most emphatically, "I am not an invalid. That's one thing you've got to get straight. I can't walk, I can't use my fingers. I've got a urinary diversion. I'm a paralytic, but I'm NOT sick."
There is something of the general in her tone. What could have been a sickbed has become a command post.
"There are two things that helped me adjust to this life - sublimation and compensation" she says. "You must remember every single thing I loved and wanted to do, I can't do anymore - oh, I can read, but that's the only thing.
"I've learned to channel my energies into different directions. My life was so full of activity. I was so busy I didn't really spend too much time with people, but now people have taken the place of my gardening."
"Don't write about me," she says. "Write about these wonderful women who care for me. Two of them, Louisa Gerenser and Marjorie Werkheiser are here now.
"Marjorie," says Katharyn, " was one of my first pupils. She also is my shopper, my alter ego.
"Louisa has never worked for money in her life before this. She is a woman of the earth - as I am - she delights in growing things.
"And Patty Murphy, Louisa's niece, isn't yet 20. She started as a little girl, giving me showers, doing all the intimate things. She still comes in on weekends. And Patty's mother, Ann helps, too.
"Laura Momich was with me when the accident happened. She believes it was meant to be. She feels she was spared in order to help take care of me."
There are other women who help and most of them live within a few miles of the Hannam house. The Hannams pay them all to come in a few hours a day to care for Katharyn. Her physical needs are many since she is paralyzed to just under the arms. Her bathroom is specially equipped and a lift is used to move her from her bed.
Marjorie and Louisa sit companionably in Katharyn's dining room. They talk softly, Marjorie somewhat reticently, and Louisa, eagerly, about Katharyn, Tears spill often from their eyes, but they are as often tears of admiration and tenderness as they are of sadness.
What do they do for Katharyn? Whatever they have to do - they bathe her in her special shower, they do range-of-motion exercises, they dress her.
"She's not in bed because she's sick," explains Marjorie. "She's in bed because it's more convenient for her to be in bed.
"She gets out of bed and into her wheelchair for the afternoon and evening when the evening lady comes." The evening lady, Iona Unangst, drives over from New Jersey every day. She also cooks dinner for Katharyn and Pierre.
"Katharyn taught me in the first and second grade at the old West Springfield School," adds Marjorie. "She was always as spirited as she is now. She listens to our problems, but she doesn't tell her own - ever.
"What a horrible adjustment it was for her - but she's a very religious woman. I think she figures God gave her a life and evidently He isn't finished with her. I think she wonders what He wants of her.
"All of her children were here then. I shouldn't say this, I guess, but maybe the kids would still be here if she hadn't sent them off to live their own lives. She definitely is an inspiration - I don't think you could feel any other way."
"Katharyn," says Louisa, "has worked out a system. She conducts everything from her bed and everything moves along smoothly. Last year, on her 60th birthday, instead of having a party for herself, she gave the ladies a party. There were, I think 17 of us, all of whom have worked here at some time or other since the accident. She organized everything from her bed. It was fantastic."
"I'm glad she was here at home when it happened. At least here she can be with her friends. She and Pierre lived in New Jersey for years. They had a store there and it was burned down twice, I think, during some racial strife. Here, though, she says she can look out the window and look across the same fields she knew as a child. I think that gives her strength.
"But all of us, we come here and work and we get to talking about our problems and we tell her. She never complains. She's always cheerful. We get so much more here than we can give."
And Patty Murphy. Why does she, at 19, high school graduate who works in a jewelry store, spend part of her weekends with her former teacher?
"I just like to," says Patty, who has helped out at the Hannam house since Katharyn first came home from the hospital.
"It sounds strange to say, I know, but now it's fun. She's such a fantastic person. She has changed very much since the beginning. During the past three years she's been excellent, I would say - always cheerful."
Patty's mother, Ann Murphy, too, has worked at Hannam's for four years. That time has been inspiring for her. She says, "I went from seeing the woman she was before, a teacher and real active."
"Seeing how she coped with her problems has made me think she is a great woman. She won't allow anyone to volunteer to help. She insists on paying. That gives her a certain sense of independence," she believes.
Laura Momich of Springtown is another of Katharyn Hannam's ladies. She worked at the Hannam home every day for five years. Now she has an ailing father to care for and only fills in when Katharyn needs her.
She was with Katharyn the day of the accident. Katharyn's daughters and Laura's older daughter were marching with the Palisades band and the women had driven down in separate cars to attend the memorial ceremony and see the band perform.
Laura says, "I've re-lived it again and again and again - and it's always the same." Although it has been seven years, she buries her curly dark head in her hands and her shoulders shake with sobs. She regains her composure, apologizes, "It's almost as though it were meant to be. 'Why was I spared?' I always ask myself.
"Katharyn was going home to bake Becky's birthday cake. She walked one way around the band and my daughter and I went on the other side of the band.
"We had to walk in the ditch and there was poison ivy and I thought maybe we should have gone the other way.
"The accident happened then and I saw this ball of blue lying there. It' was Katharyn and I didn't know it. I decided to move away from there because the ambulance would be coming and we walked further down the road and I saw Katharyn's car and I looked for her and I started to get uncomfortable. I hadn't noticed what she'd been wearing. Then I got really worried and a neighbor man was there and he asked if I wanted him to go see if it was her.
"Then I didn't know what to about the girls. The band was getting ready to go down to Ottsville so I got the girls and I drove to Doylestown Hospital. I drove real slow because I didn't want to get there. I was sure she was dead.
"We waited and waited and waited and the doctors wouldn't say anything. Finally, they sent us home. Pierre stayed.
"I didn't see her again until she was out of intensive care. She was in the hospital for weeks and weeks. She still has the marks of the wheels on her body.
"Then when she came home I'd go there every day to help. At first her younger daughter did everything here but Katharyn and Pierre didn't like that. They said she had her own life to lead and they worked out this thing of paying the ladies to come in to help.
"When I first started to work there, I'd go in one morning and we'd both cry the whole time I was there. The next day things would be more cheerful and the next day we'd cry again.
"I don't know how she's managed. She must have worked it out in her own mind in the darkness of night.
"The school had a country fair to raise money for her - they raised thousands. They went back to her the next year and wanted to it again and she said no, there were others who needed help. The Springtown Volunteer Fire Co. then took over the fair and they've held it every year since, but it all started with Katharyn. She's even brought the community together.
"She is so organized, she can tell you exactly what's in her freezer at any given moment. Me? I do my own shopping and I don't know what's in mine.
"Pierre is an exceptional man. He loves her so much and he's stuck right with her through everything. I know I couldn't have learned to cope the way Katharyn has and I doubt my husband would have been as strong, as faithful as Pierre."
"What can I say?" questions Pierre as he raises his hands in a typical Gallic gesture. He has the hearty complexion and pleasant accent of his native Alsace-Lorraine.
"I came to this country in 1951 … speak about that. Katharyn was married before, too. She had a son. We came together. We married. We had a son and two daughters.
"That day," he shakes his head, "she went out to the parade. Later my brother-in-law came for me. He said, 'Come, Pierre, we go to the hospital.' 'What for?' I asked him. I did not know anything." The pain, the horror, still show in his eyes.
He closes them and says, "She is wonderful woman. She's unbelievable. She never complains and it has been so difficult. "How do I have the strength? I don't know. I just have it. Some men would bolt, would run. I stay."
Katharyn is as proud of Pierre as he is of her. "He was deeply hurt by all this and he carries his hurt with him, but we have both come to a stage of acceptance." she says.
Katharyn makes tapes for shut-ins and they are distributed through several churches. With the tapes, she says, "I try to make people realize how many great things they've got going for them. It's my philosophy that you may be shut in but you're not shut out."
She enjoys visits with her children. Henry is married and living in Virginia. Jean-Pierre lives in Texas and is a student at the University of San Antonio. Christianne is a nurse at the University of Penn. Becky, who also is married, lives in Easton.
Katharyn's greatest personal joy, though, comes from her grandsons. There are three of them and she can hold them in her arms, hug them and caress them.
"They've really made everything worthwhile," she says with tears in her eyes. "We're a very close-knit family - there's so much love.
"There is a lot of beauty in tragedy," she says thoughtfully and softly. "Beauty and strength."

The following is a transcription (by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.) of a "Family Diary" written by his mother, Mary Katharyn Hannam, in 1981.

FAMILY DIARY

My name is Mary Katharyn Rau Buckley Hannam. I was born in 1918 to Floyd William Rau and Mary Susannah Melchior and the home was on North Street in Bethlehem, Penna.
Floyd Rau was a widower with two children, Agnes Isabelle and David Meffan. Their mother was Charlotte (Lottie) Meffan and she died in childbirth. Agnes and David were 7 and 8 when Floyd and Mary married.
Floyd Rau was born in Salisbury Township, Northampton Co., Pa. to Antilla Scholl and William Rau. He had brothers Edward and Frank. Sisters were Catherine, Lottie and Marian. Only Frank left no descendants.
Mary Susannah was the youngest child and only daughter of Mary Elizabeth Montfort and (Rev.) Oliver Hoffman Melchior. He was a Lutheran pastor for 49 years. Mary had 3 brothers, Montfort, William and Charles. Each had many descendants.
Mary and Floyd had only one other child, Marian Marguerite, who died at birth.
When Katharyn was 9 months old, the Rau family moved to the Albright home in rural Springtown, 50 yards across the road from the Melchior homestead.
Agnes married Hollis Kline, a fruit farmer, and had one child, Joanne. She married Herbert Ross and had Kevin, Shawn and Holly.

Memorial Day Tribute to [Katharyn Hannam]

May 24, 2014 at 6:23 PM 2 comments

When we think about Memorial Day we picture fighting men and women in uniform courageously doing what it takes to protect their countries, their families, their comrades. We think about war and the people who have fought in wars and the people who have died in wars. But, as each of you know personally, there are many different kinds of soldiers engaged in many different kinds of wars. You each, every one of you dear souls reading this, has suffered your own traumas, fought your own battles, endured your own losses and emerged scarred, wounded, battle-weary and resolute '97 victorious would be greatly over-stating it. No one wins in a war. Every one looses something. On the other hand, each of you joining me here has also gained many things from what you have endured. (STOP IT RIGHT NOW: I CAN HEAR SOME OF YOU DISQUALIFYING YOURSELVES, SAYING YOU DIDN'T SUFFER ENOUGH TO BE INCLUDED. ONCE AGAIN, I HAVE TO ASK YOU TO RE-READ THE INTRODUCTION OF THE MANY FACES OF PTSD. Do you remember? Do not compare your trauma to that of anyone else. It doesn't matter if the elephant is standing on your little toe or your whole foot. For those of you who are very literal, let me explain that the elephant represents the trauma. PLEASE. I BEG YOU. STOP COMPARING.)

So, in honor of those who have fought more personal wars, I dedicate this blog to Aunt Kitty. Let me tell you a small part of her story:

Forty-two years ago this weekend Kathryn Hannam, my beloved Aunt Kitty, was hurrying home from having watched her sixteen year old daughter, Becky, the youngest of her four children, march in a Memorial Day Parade. Extended family and friends were celebrating Becky's birthday that afternoon with a great, happy picnic. As Aunt Kitty sprinted up a hill in her hurry to get home for the party, an elderly woman lost control of her car, running Kathryn over and dragging her. It was a horrific accident. Aunt Kitty died three times on the way to the hospital. For weeks it was touch and go. Family, friends, her husband, Pierre, and her four children, as well as the entire eastern Pennsylvania community and Aunt Kitty's church family were traumatized right along with her, stopped breathing every time she stopped, and rejoiced with each positive step toward life. I can tell you without a doubt in my mind, that only Aunt Kitty could have fought back from this massive trauma. To say she was a tough cookie would be so mild. She was a woman of incredible strength and resolve and determination. I vividly remember my dad, her older brother, calling me to tell me of this tragedy and my simply crumbling down along the nearest wall in horror and disbelief.

When, after six months or so, she had progressed as far as possible, Aunt Kitty found herself a quadriplegic. She had no use of either of her legs or either of her arms. That did not stop her indomitable spirit, nor did it stop her family and community from stepping in and doing everything possible for her. A downstairs room was made into a bedroom and a handicapped-accessible bathroom was added, and home she came to the house that that always comforted her. The house had belonged to her maternal grandparents and after years living elsewhere, she had brought her family back to Bucks County and been fortunate enough to purchase the very home that had meant everything to her when she was a child.

I have a million Aunt Kitty stories to tell you about the ten years in which she lay in that hospital bed looking out over the countryside she so loved and guiding and prodding and encouraging and cherishing those around her. Her church family found a routine in which every night of the week someone from this tiny, country church would come to start supper and clean a bit and talk to her. Her husband and children were ORDERED by her to go on with their lives, and they did, all the while comforting her with their presence and enlarging her world with their outside lives.

My mom told me about a blizzard one winter. My dad was at a meeting and my mom was home alone and apparently Aunt Kitty was home alone, too, in her hospital bed in that downstairs room. The wind was howling and the snow was white needles slicing the air sidewise when the front door blew open. After enduring it for as long as she could, Aunt Kitty called my mom and asked her to drive the mile or so to close the door. My mom said it was the only time, in those ten soul-testing years, that she had ever seen Aunt Kitty cry.

I remember a day when I was visiting with my three little boys. Aunt Kitty's older sister was there also. We were all out in front of the house and the dog house was there, too. My kids had never seen a doghouse and were fascinatedly crawling in and out, pretending to be dogs. Aunt Agnes told them to stop, that it was dirty and germy. Aunt Kitty said, "Oh, Agnes, let them play. They're children."

Aunt Kitty told me that for the first two years after the accident, she prayed for the use of her arms and hands. She didn't so much mind the wheelchair. That she could tolerate. After two years of seemingly unanswered prayer, she decided God must have another plan, and she started praying to accept her life the way it was. Everything changed for her then, I believe. The last eight years of her life were, as far as I know, truly satisfying and fulfilling for her. This formerly vibrant and active fifth grade teacher metamorphosed into the village counselor. You simply did not go past that house without seeing that someone had stopped to talk to Kathryn. She was always in. And she had always been a wise woman, but she became a wiser, more spiritual, more patient, more engaged woman. Perhaps because she, too, needed the interaction, people stopping to talk to her became not an interruption, as they might have been in her former, busy life, but a delight.

Aunt Kitty could easily be a book and is impossible to reduce to a blog. BUT, you get the idea. She is my personal inspiration when I think about a soldier, someone who has fought an impossible battle. I know each of you has inspirations, too. What I think you may not realize, is that each of you is an inspiration to me.

Blessings, susan

Don't forget '97 next week something exciting is going to be added here.

NOTE: I do not know if the following is a record for this person or not. However, the estimated year of birth and previous residence of Jenkintown, PA (where his son, Henry, was born in 1941) makes it possible.
-- John-Pierre M. Haannam, Sr., 2 August 2017

[Source: 1940 US Census, Elmira Reformatory, Elmira, New York, 15 April 1940]

A Henry A. Buckley, age 24, who was born in Pennsylvania and who lived in Jenkintown, Pennsylvania in 1935 was an inmate (possibly an employee) of the Elmira Reformatory in Elmira, New York on 15 April 1940.


The child from this marriage was:

+ 630 M    i. Henry Floyd Hannam 3 was born on 23 Dec 1941 in Jenkintown, Montgomery, Pennsylvania,106 died on 31 Jul 2015 in Forest, Bedford, Virginia at age 73, and was buried on 3 Aug 2015 in Cremated - Family held a private ceremony (with military honors) at his home in Forest, Bedford, Virginia.

Marriage Notes:

[Source: Typewritten letter from Katharyn Hannam to Cathy and John-Pierre Hannam, undated but probably written shortly before 14 February 1978]

... On Feb 14th we celebrate our 25th anniversary. To us it is great because it is a miracle I am alive... and very healthy right now. I am amazed at how thrilled Dad is. There are to be NO gifts. The girls did want an open house but you know Dad and company! So we will have his favorite quiet dinner at home.

Now that you're a "big boy" I will set the record straight. We were "married" on June 8, 1951; we lived together (with Grandma and Henry) until his divorce was final in Nov. '52. We were told (erroneously) that we had to wait 3 months for remarriage. So we set our religious ceremony for Feb 14th and then conceived you about the second week in Nov. After living together for 1 and 1/2 years I hardly think you were a baby born in anything but love and desire. Also we were in our 30's. We regret only that we couldn't have started out young together; we are both against divorce...

Noted events in their marriage were:

• Marriage Fact: 113 Melchior Genealogy (M.S. Rau) - Pierre & Katharyn married 16 Nov 1952

• Death of One Spouse: 22 May 1982. St. Luke's Hospital, Bethlehem, Northampton, Pennsylvania

• Officiant: 14 Feb 1953, Quakertown, Bucks, Pennsylvania. Edmund E. Bieber, Minister of the Gospel

General Notes:

[Source: The Hannam Genealogy, compiled by John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.]

Pierre Hannam died on 22 September 1995 in Pfastatt, France of lung cancer. He was living with his third wife (religious ceremony), Denise Lechleiter Grun, at the time.

Pierre was born in France, served briefly in the French army during World War II, then spent the remainder of the war in Switzerland after the French were defeated [NOTE: This may be incorrect. See the discussion below. - JPMH]. He came to the United States (Texas) in the early 1950's where he stayed with or worked for a friend. Pierre migrated to Pennsylvania where he met Katharyn Rau Buckley who was working as a waitress in a Quakertown restaurant. Pierre and Katharyn later married and had three children. From 1953 until June 1968, they lived in Bridgeton, New Jersey. Pierre originally owned and operated a store, Hannam's Sundry Shop, where he sold cosmetics and other 'sundry' items and operated a soda fountain. His wife, Katharyn, and adopted son, Henry, also worked in the store. This store was on South Avenue (Pierre and his family lived in an apartment over the store). Later, he moved the store to Southeast Avenue in Bridgeton. Toward the end, Pierre converted the store to a pinball and pool table operation. During the racial unrest of the 1960s, the store on Southeast Avenue was burned. Since his business had been failing for some time, Pierre took a job as a radio host at WSNJ-AM. His evening show, quite popular with the ladies due to his Alsatien accent, was called 'Potluck with Pierre'. Finally, he and Katharyn decided to leave Bridgeton (due to a declining neighborhood and constant racial tensions) and purchased the ancestral home of Katharyn's grandparents, Oliver Hoffman Melchior and Mary Elizabeth Montfort, from Mrs. Elmer Markley (widow). Katharyn's mother, Mary Susannah Melchior Rau (widow), lived across the road.

Pierre worked first at Fretz's (a clothing manufacturer) in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Then he got a job with the Pennsylvania Turnpike where he worked as a tollbooth operator until his medical retirement in the late 1970s or early 1980s. After his wife, Katharyn, died in 1982, Pierre decided to return to France where he eventually married the widow of his nephew, Raymond Grun. He and Denise lived in her home in Pfastatt, France, until his death from lung cancer in September 1995.

In his better years, Pierre was quite athletic. Apparently, he played soccer as a youth in France. While in Bridgeton, he played for several years on a local softball team. Throughout his stay in Bridgeton and for awhile in Pennsylvania, Pierre was an excellent table tennis (ping pong) player and had a large collection of championship trophies to prove it. As a child, I remember him showing off by doing handstands and walking across the living room (or back yard) on his hands. I remember being quite impressed by the fact that he could throw a ball so high that it appeared to disappear before returning to earth where he would (usually) catch it. At some point in the 1950s when I was very young, Pierre was injured in a plane crash. He also hurt his back when he accidentally fell through the ceiling of his store on Southeast Avenue .

His favorite pasttimes included listening to the Philadelphia Phillies on the radio or watching them on television, watching old horror movies (Karloff, Lugosi, etc.), and working in his garden and yard in Pennsylvania.

Social Security records give Pierre's date of birth as 12 April 1918 but we (his children) were always told he was born 12 April 1919. I suspect this may have had something to do with the transfer of Alsace (including his hometown of Mulhouse) from Germany back to France at the Treaty of Versailles (28 June 1919). My father, Pierre, was always fiercely loyal to France and, I suspect, he considered it his misfortune to have been born (whether in 1918 or 1919) in German territory but which the French always considered to be French!.

-- John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 2 September 2012

-------------------------------------------------------------------

[Source: Emails from Olivier Golly, based on conversations with his grandmother, Marie-Claire Petit, and his mother, Michele Golly, to John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 12 and 13 Decemer 2016]

Mr. Golly indicates that Pierre Hannam was in the German Wehrmacht before he deserted and fled to Switzerland. This is counter to the information Pierre Hannam provided to his son, John-Pierre. However, Pierre was always hesitant to talk about this period in his life. It is, therefore, very mysterious. Mr. Golly's observations -- based on his conversations with his grandmother, Marie-Claire Petit and his mother, Michele Petit Golly -- certainly would explain the reasons for Pierre's reticence.

"Indeed, my uncle's birth name was indeed "Pierre-Paul" but everyone called him "Paul". He was born during the war but in the same year, in 1941, your father deserted the Wehrmacht and to avoid going to the Military Court, he took refuge in Switzerland. Later, in 1944, my grandmother and Paul as many children of Mulhouse, were evacuated to Switzerland for six months because the city was besieged by the French and the Americans ... "

and

"To reply to your previous mail concerning your father, it should be pointed out that many Alsatians have been forcibly incorporated into the Wehrmacht and even into the SS. This is called "Malgrι-Nous". Your father had the "chance" of being able to desert before being sent to the Russian front. He surely had to hide in Switzerland a good time, but I can not tell you more, because this episode did not say anything to my grandmother either, she had to be too young ... sorry."

--------------

Comment from John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr., 14 December 2016:

My father must have been very conflicted about this period of his life. He was fiercely loyal to France and his family. If he was forced to serve in the German Army as Mr. Golly indicates, he would have been emotionally torn. Having to serve in a military that had just defeated his countrymen -- and historically laid claim to his hometown region of Alsace-Lorraine, would have been anathema to him. I remember, as a teenager, coming home with my recently purchased 'Surfer's Cross' and proudly showing it to him. He got very angry and refused to talk to me for several days. Later, he explained that my 'Surfer's Cross' looked exactly like the German Iron Cross. With that explanation, I understood. My father hated the Nazis and this, perhaps, explains his refusal to talk about his time in the military.

Edgar Rau, 93, Former Palmer Zoning Officer, `Mr. Pa. Exchange'
January 22, 1999|The Morning Call

Edgar J. Rau, 93, of Gracedale, Upper Nazareth Township, formerly of Palmer Township, died Wednesday, Jan. 20, in Gracedale. He was the husband of Mary M. (Morgan) Rau. They were married for 73 years in June.

He was Palmer Township zoning officer for 25 years until retiring in 1988. He previously was an inspector and director of home rehabilitation for the Easton Redevelopment Authority and a residential building contractor for two years. He also worked for his father's business, Rau's Dairy in Palmer Township, for 30 years.

Employee honored for designing museum Web site
By Lisa R. Rhodes Staff writer
Posted 10/27/05

When John-Pierre Hannam received a phone call at home from his boss, David Rose, director of the Directorate of Logistics (DOL), on the night of Oct. 3, he was not sure what to think.

"He doesn't call me very often," said Hannam, a logistics management specialist at DOL, explaining that when he usually receives a call from his boss at home, it's a snowy night and he is getting notice not to come in to work the next day. Hannam said he hoped the phone call wasn't news of a terrorist attack, requiring him to come into work to handle an emergency crisis. "But it was nice news. Very pleasant news," he said.
Rose asked Hannam to attend the weekly garrison management meeting the next morning. There, Hannam received a plaque of appreciation from the Fort Meade Museum Historical Foundation and a $100 gift certificate for his work on the Fort Meade Museum's Web site.

"I was just pleasantly surprised. I wasn't expecting anything. I appreciate the thought and the recognition," said Hannam, who designed the museum's Web site in the spring of 2001 and since then has periodically updated the site.

Robert Johnson, director of the Fort Meade Museum, said the work Hannam has done is "outstanding."

Hannam designed the museum's Web site after former Installation Commander Col. Michael J. Stewart sent out a directive in early 2001 for all directorates to have their own Web site. He'd designed the DOL Web site and gotten so many compliments, the commander asked him to design a Web site for the museum. Hannam, who has an associate's degree in commercial art and once worked as an Air Force photographer, was glad to comply.

"I was very fortunate," said Hannam, saying former DOL Director Lynn Sasser, also a member of the museum board of directors, approved of the project and allowed him to take time during work hours to design the site. Sasser also purchased additional computer software to aid with the design.

Johnson said the museum did not have anyone on staff with the skills to design the site, so Hannam's work is "greatly appreciated." The museum now receives a lot of inquiries about its exhibitions and archives, in part due to the user-friendly accessibility of the site. Hannam said easy accessibility was his goal in designing the Web site, saying people will then visit the museum for further research.

Hannam, who has taken a course in HTML (hypertext markup language) design at a community college to help him design Web pages, consulted with Johnson and Barbara Taylor, exhibits specialist, before going forward with the design. The site features historical photographs of tanks, uniforms, helicopters and memorial headstones, as well as a historical timeline and special event coverage on prisoners of war and Memorial Day activities.

Hannam and Johnson are now talking about redesigning the Web site in the near future, to include more interesting graphics and an updated, modern look. "Now I can't wait to add new content," said Hannam, saying recognition for his Web design skills has sparked new motivation for his work for the museum.

Labels and the Libertarian
By John-Pierre M.Hannam Sr.
Lantern Lit Contributor

Labels! Labels! Labels everywhere! As humans, we seem to have a penchant for labeling things. Christian-Jew-Muslim-Atheist. Black-White-Hispanic. Straight-gay-asexual. Married-single-separated. Rich-poor-middle class. Male-female. French-German-Mexican-Asian-African American. Republican-Democrat-Libertarian. Conservative-liberal-moderate. I could go on and on but you get the idea. We all do it. We put labels on things - especially on people - even if we don't consciously do so. In some ways, assigning labels helps us to categorize and make sense of the world around us.
Sadly, our tendency to put labels on others often leads to alienation, hostility, and even hatred. It sets us apart from each other. When people are different from us, we tend to judge them. And this, alas, is seldom good.
One label to which I gladly subscribe is 'Christian'. I'm not a very good Christian, but I want to be and try to be. One thing Jesus said was, 'Judge not, lest ye be judged.' He also said, 'Do to others what you would want them to do to you.' You may know this as the Golden Rule. Most religions have similar guidelines. Personally, I think it's a good philosophy whether you are Christian or not. I wish more people would observe these simple 'rules' because our world would be a much nicer place in which to live.
Another label to which I grudgingly subscribe is 'libertarian'. Not Libertarian as in the political party, but libertarian as in the philosophy. People who subscribe to this philosophy are no better or worse than anyone else. We are all human and imperfect. The big difference, in my view, is that libertarians try to observe the Golden Rule even if they don't necessarily recognize that they are doing so. In a nutshell, we believe in 'live and let live'.
As a libertarian, I may not agree with something you do but I think you have every right to do it as long as you don't harm anyone else in the process. As a Christian, I believe God ultimately will judge each and every one of us. In the meantime, please try to refrain from judging me or the person next to you. If you smoke, that is your right as long as you don't blow it in my face. If you drink, that is your right as long as you don't get in your car and endanger others. If you gamble, that is your right as long as you don't starve your children in the process. I may not like the music you listen to, but you have every right to play it as long as you don't keep me awake at three in the morning. If you don't like guns, that is your right but don't try to infringe my right to own one. Again, I could go on and on. Just because you like or dislike something, you have no right to try to impose your feelings and beliefs - your likes and dislikes - on me.
My biggest problem with politicians - yes, mostly Democrats and Republicans - is that they try to change ME and YOU through legislation and taxes. Democrats don't like cigarettes or liquor so they try to tax it out of existence while salivating over the extra money those taxes bring. Republicans try to change moral behavior by imposing their beliefs on others. Most of them - Democrat and Republican alike - ignore the very Constitution that forms the basis for this nation. All of them ignore their oaths to uphold the Constitution. Every last one of them ignores the Golden Rule.
Sometimes it's really hard to label our politicians because they don't even bother to follow the principles of their own respective parties. Hence, we have labels such as 'RINO' (Republican-in-name-only) and 'blue-dog Democrats' who tend to be more conservative in some of their political outlooks. In some respects, it's good that they don't follow the party-line in lockstep but it also tends to blur the differences between them.
In fact, I see very little difference between the Republicans and the Democrats these days. It's tweedle-dee and tweedle-dum when it comes to our choices at the polls. Have you ever noticed how politicians scramble to be the tweedle-dumbest?
Seriously, it really bothers me that our president and legislators have no qualms about sending our young men and women into harm's way. They think nothing of 'spreading democracy' to other less-enlightened countries by spending our national wealth in terms of dollars and lives. We send billions of dollars each year to foreign dictators knowing all the time that none of that money actually goes to the people in need. We blithely send cruise missiles and drones to obliterate houses and towns on the off-chance we might actually kill a terrorist or two. If we kill a few women and children in the process, we ask, 'So what?' We call it 'collateral damage' and go on our way. That latest episode of 'Survivor' beckons! I might fall behind in my Facebook game so let me get to it. Meanwhile, our brave soldiers are on the ground all over the world, sent there basically to serve as targets for those who hate us. And when those brave young men and women come back with missing arms and legs or mental issues, the same politicians who sent them turn their cowardly heads and ignore them.
Libertarians, in general, are not 'isolationists' as some Republicans like to call them. Instead, most of us try to rely on the Constitution which limits the federal government to protecting our borders and our security and very few other things. We tend to be 'non-interventionist' unless our national security is directly threatened. When it is, watch out! The United States is the most powerful nation on earth and can and should use its might to defend our own country and our allies. We should use our military might then, and only then. We should not, and cannot, be the policemen of the world.
Libertarians are also wrong on some issues - like abortion - in my opinion. Democrats, who tend to be more 'liberal', support abortion and by so doing pander to women. Republicans, who are only slightly more 'conservative' than Democrats, generally oppose abortion and by so doing pander to the religious right. Libertarians are all over the board on abortion but tend to believe it is an issue that should be decided by each state. I don't know about your state government, but mine is run by idiots and I have no faith in them to make a sensible decision. Personally, I oppose abortion because it flies in the face of that libertarian principle of 'do no harm'. I personally believe abortion is murder. The same people who pass laws making suicide illegal or who oppose the death penalty, blindly support a woman's 'right to choose'. I have a different take on it. A murderer makes a choice to harm another and, when properly convicted by a jury of his peers, deserves the death penalty. Likewise, suicide is a personal choice. I personally believe it is a sin but only God can judge. Who am I to say that a person suffering intractable pain from cancer is wrong to end his suffering early? In the case of abortion, I say let the baby decide. If the baby says, "It's okay with me", then go ahead and have the abortion. Without that explicit permission, you are doing harm to another where you have no right to do so. This is one area libertarians and I diverge.
So, folks, how about we just try to live our lives and stop worrying about what other people are doing? Your sins are no better or worse than my sins. They are just different sins. And, ultimately, whether you choose to believe it or not, God will have the final say. And that is my take on things - whether you want to label me 'libertarian' or something else.

The following is a Facebook post from John-Pierre (J-P) Hannam on his father's 63rd birthday, It meant a lot to him.

Today is my Dad's birthday. Also today one of my buddies made me aware that they've re-released Crystal Pepsi. Remember that stuff? It wasn't around for long. Maybe 1993. It's strange, the associations you make with people, places, and things. To me, Crystal Pepsi will always remind me of the time I went with my Dad to Ft. Meade for one of those "bring your kids to work" day things. I remember he bought me one because I thought it looked cool. It may be the only time I've had one, but I've checked a couple places today looking for it, mostly for the memory. It was a good day. He's probably shaking his head thinking, "how random!" But the random things sometimes are the best...

I went fishing last weekend for the first time in maybe 15 years. Didn't catch a damn thing, which seems familiar too! But I will never in my life be able to go fishing and not think of my Dad, and my brother. Those are some of my best memories. I'll never drink a Slurpee, pass by a Dunkin' Donuts, or watch a baseball game without thinking of him. He and Mom raised us right, raised us well, and gave us the tools to be the men we are today. I hope we've made them proud. I think we have!

My search for Crystal Pepsi will continue so I can bring him one! Even though, another lesson he taught me when I was young is that Coke is far superior. If we are disappointed, at least we can share it together in all of it's transparent glory.

Happy Birthday, Dad! I love you!

Noted events in their marriage were:

• Cohabited: 1973-1974, Allentown, Lehigh, Pennsylvania. Lived together at 435 Liberty Street, Allentown, Pennsylvania, for approximately 10 months before marriage.

Maid of Honor: Rebecca J. Hannam

• Officiant: 8 Jun 1974, Springtown, Bucks, Pennsylvania. Rev. John Kulp, Pastor, Pleasant Valley Mennonite Church (also a substitute teacher at Palisades High School)

• Fact 1: 16 Apr 1983, Crownsville, Anne Arundel, Maryland. 174 Cathy Hannam left John-Pierre M. Hannam on this date taking her car and several other items. She said at the time that she was going to stay at the home of a friend, Michele Oliver, for one week.

• Separation: 7 May 1983, Maryland. This is the date given in the separation agreement as the date parties "agreed to separate". However, Cathy walked out on 16 April 1983.

• Fact 2: 2 Jun 1983, Crownsville, Anne Arundel, Maryland. 174 On the morning of 2 June 1983, while Jake was at work, his neighbor called to report that Cathy M.

General Notes:

[Source: John-Pierre M. Hannam, Sr.]

Anyone who knows my first-born son, John-Pierre Jr., or J-P as we call him, knows he is a wonderful young man. He is sensitive, kind, extremely intelligent, and talented in more ways than I can count. He is very artistic, an excellent musician, a loving husband, a loyal friend, and a true patriot. One measure of a man is how he responds to children and animals. J-P is a 'cuddly bear' when it comes to both. They love him! Before he got married, he volunteered for the Laurel Rescue Squad #49 and served there for several years as a firefighter and EMT.

He has a wonderful sense of humor and always makes me laugh with his witty remarks and comebacks. I wish my brain was even half as quick as his! Despite all his capabilities and accomplishments, he is humble, honest and self-deprecating. He is a joy to be around as is evident from his wide range of friends. He is loyal and stands by his friends and family, a trait not seen often these days.

It's because of his personality, honesty, and dedication that I think he would be a fine politician. He has the character to be a good one and would never be seduced by the money and power other politicians crave. No matter what he does in life, I know he will always do his best.

I am very proud of him and love him with all my heart. His mother and I are blessed.



John-Pierre married Meredith Grace Poehlman,178 daughter of Norman Diering Poehlman II 178 and Nancy Lee Commander,178 on 16 Jun 2012 in Overhillls Mansion, 916 South Rolling Road, Catonsville, Baltimore, Maryland.179 Meredith was born on 16 Feb 1982.178

UM Student Selected for Prestigious Truman Scholarship

Junior Phillip Hannam has been selected as a 2008 Truman Scholar.

College Park, Md.--University of Maryland junior Phillip Hannam has been awarded a Truman Scholarship, the Harry S. Truman Scholarship Foundation announced this week. Before speaking to a group of prospective students and parents, Hannam was given the news by University of Maryland President C.D. Mote, Jr.

"The University is very proud that Phillip Hannam has been selected as a Truman Scholar," said Mote. "He is a talented young man who has demonstrated commitment to public service through his leadership in the Maryland chapter of Engineers Without Borders. His qualifications fit perfectly with the goals of the Truman Scholars program."

Hannam is one of 65 students from 55 U.S. colleges and universities selected on the basis of leadership potential, intellectual ability, and likelihood of 'making a difference.' Truman Scholars are chosen by a selection panel, which typically include a university president, a federal judge, a distinguished public servant and a past Truman Scholar.

The $30,000 merit-based scholarship is presented each year to college juniors, from across the country, who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and wish to attend graduate school in preparation for careers in government or public service.

Hannam, a mechanical engineering major in the A. James Clark School of Engineering, has been an active member of Engineers Without Borders since his freshman year and currently serves as the Burkina Faso solar water pumping project leader. He is also a member of the Gemstone Program, a multidisciplinary four-year research program for selected undergraduate honors students of all majors. Hannam, through several student groups, has also worked to raise awareness of climate change and clean energy on campus. After graduating from Maryland in 2009, he plans to pursue dual master's degrees in mechanical engineering and public policy.

"To be selected amongst some of the finest aspiring public servants in the country is an immense honor," said Hannam. "Meeting fellow leaders throughout the Truman process gives me faith in our collective ability to overcome challenges, while also giving me faith in my own abilities. I am forever thankful to my friends and family for their support and guidance."

As part of the Truman Scholarship, students receive leadership training, graduate school counseling, preferential admission and merit-based aid to some premier graduate institutions, and internship opportunities with federal agencies. Truman Scholars are required to work in public service for three of the seven years following completion of a graduate degree program.

Hannam will be recognized at an awards ceremony in May at the Harry S. Truman Library in Independence, Mo.

This year, four UM students were chosen as finalists for the 2008 Truman Scholarship. In addition to Hannam, Lida Zlatic, a classics major; Tsehaitu Retta, a government & politics major; and Jason Shelton, a Russian and government & politics major were selected from more than 600 applications to be among the 211 finalists from 139 institutions.

Our first grandson arrived by C-section last night. Howard Chase Hackelton (who will be called Chase). 9 lbs. 6 oz. 21 ". Pudgy and adorable. He initially had some respiratory distress but this am is off oxygen and doing better. Sarah has been unable to spend any time with him yet.
If you would join us in prayer, Sarah is having some complications this morning, having been in extreme pain since delivery. They have switched IV meds as her uterus was not contracting well enough to pass clots that need to come out. She is possibly facing more surgery.
Thanks for supporting us.
Lynn and Christy

Hello to All,
Hope you are all doing well. Chase just turned 6 mos. old so we figured we should catch everyone up on what's been going on.
Our family is all doing really well. I LOVE being home with Chase! I truly enjoy taking care of our home, learning how to cook (better!) and spending time with our little guy. We just came back from the doctor's for a well visit and Chase is 26 1/2" long and weighs 15lbs 14 1/2 oz so he is healthy and gaining normally. He has 7 teeth that started coming in as of 3 months! I stopped nursing right before he turned 5 months old for the same reason. Teeth hurt!!! :-)
Chase rolls all over the place now. We put him on the floor and before you know it he's across the room. One of the pictures we are sending shows him in his Bumbo seat. It helps a child sit properly when they can't on their own. He loves the change of position and we are able to interact with him in an upright position. He will sit up for short periods of time if you prop him up but he immediately tries to roll onto his stomach and move. He is 100% boy! The movement and the noise never stops. He has been introducing us to a bunch of new sounds as well as his version of singing which is adorable. Also, just today he started pulling his legs underneath himself and practicing pushing forward with them so I wouldn't be surprised if he isn't crawling really soon.
Howard and I absolutely love being parents. It's been neat for both of us watching how the other interacts with the baby. Howard is a great dad and Chase gets so excited when Howard comes home from work. The arms and legs start flailing and he will let out happy shrieks. Chase also has been sleeping through the night since about 3 mos. I read an article about sleep training babies and since he was old enough we started working with him. Within 2 nights our little guy was sleeping 9 hours a night! Hurray!!! We've just adjusted his schedule to longer awake time and only two naps during the day. He now goes down at 8pm and wakes up at 7am. It is wonderful and Chase, Howard and I are all happy because of it.
Howard is in the midst of his busy season with work so there have been some late days on and off. He is so looking forward to lay off this year and the opportunity to spend a lot of time with our son. I keep busy with housework (I am a neat freak) and the cooking but my favorite part is that since I am home all day I can do more time consuming baking. I LOVE to bake! Chase and I try to get out for a walk everyday and I do workouts with videos we have if I can. Plus, we try to visit his "Nee Nee" (my mom) once a week if possible. She calls him "Bonkie" which his Aunt Kendal has picked up and started calling him as well.
We are very busy but also very happy. Chase has added so much fun to our days. We will be in touch again before to long.
Love,
Sarah, Howard and Chase
