Ted was born October 8, 1909 at Oneida, Kansas. He attended Nemaha, Kansas school.

Ted moved to the Lester area in 1930. He hired out to many area farmers to hand pick ear corn. He recalls a â€Å“good dayâ€Â was picking one acre of corn!

Emma was born January 13, 1910. She attended a country school in Logan Township. She spent many of her youthful years helping mothers with young children and new babies.

Ted and Emma were married November 8. 1932,in Rock Rapids. The day of their wedding was highlighted by a blizzard which many people remember to this day.

Their first home was near Hills, Minnesota, but they moved to a farm southwest of Lester where they farmed and milked cows for many years. Ted and Emma retired and moved to Lester in 1972.

There were seven children born to this union:

Bob married Nancy Wysong, Lester, Iowa.

John,married Donna Moser, Mesa, Arizona.

Ernie married Sharon DeHaan, Indianapolis, Indiana.

Wayne married Dorothy Sabo (deceased), Mansfield, Ohio.

Pauline married Dave Teubel, Larchwood, Iowa.

Bill, married Erma Esslinger, Lester, Iowa.

Jim married Suzanne Miller, Lester, Iowa.

A special highlight since their retirement was being able to celebrate their 50th Anniversary in 1982. At this time Ted keeps busy doing woodworking and Emma enjoys baking, handwork and working for others.

His wife was a member of the Apostolic Christian Church, but apparently he wasn't. They lived well into the woods, and visiting them by horse and carriage meant having to ford a creek.

He was employed by HIX co. as a salesman, hence the "Hix" to distinquish him.

206 From Markus Kaufman on 27 Apr 2013:

On your website, I found an entry of the farm Gratweidli in Escholzmatt. I have myself ancestors who were born in the Gratweidli. For a photobook of our family, we are looking for a photograph of the house Gratweidli. Today this house is not existing anymore and the fields are covered with forest. The current owner is Rosmarie Gerber from Aussergrat. Previously it was owned by a Gerber relative who lives in the US or Canada. He is 85 year old now. If you would have a photograph of this house Gratweidli, who was occupied still in the early 1950 there were still some walls but today nothing is left of this house.

Thank you very much for your help finding a photograph of the house Gratweidli in Escholzmatt, LU. It was occupied until 1920 by the Kaufmanns from the Kurüti (Churüti). Johann Kaufmann moved to the Gratweidli and raised his children there, one of them, Anton Kaufmann, was my grandfahter, he died in 1966.

Sincerely Yours

BIOGRAPHY: The "Traer Star-Clipper" (Fri., Feb. 7, 1958, Trier, Tama Co., IA) newspaper has the following from an interview with Herman F. Blocker. "My father, Asmus Blocker, a native of Germany, who left that country for a new life in the United States, crossed the ocean in a sailing vessel, the voyage requiring 30 days. The wind was against the crew much of the way. The seas were infested with pirate ships at that time. One took after the ship on which my father was a passenger. It had one more sail than the pirate ship and it got away, but not until it had been chased far out of its course - somewhere between Florida and Cuba. Some of the passengers and crew contacted cholera on the trip. Several died, and their bodies buried at sea." However, there were no deaths annotated for the Blöckers.

HABEGGER: Feeding into the Emme is a stream named Ilfis. It is on the hills and valleys that feed into this stream that the Habeggers lived. One kilometer from the village of Barau is a farm complex on a hill named Habegg. It is from this farm that we received our family name. In Switzerland each farm or farm complex has a name. The family or families living on that farm are known by the name of the farm. In the middle ages common people did not have family names. When distinctions needed to be made between persons, family names were added. The name of the farm they were living on frequently became the source of that name. Even today when a farmer goes to town he will frequently be called by the name of the farm rather than by his family name.

The name Habegg is a shortened form of Habichtegg which Hawk Ridge. The Habegg farm is on a hill rising from the valleys to the west and south. It is the shoulder of a higher hill named Riegenen. Hawks can be seen soring on the air currents coming from the valley to the west. The hawk is able to remain motionless by balancing on the upward moving breeze. It was probably from such a common sight that the hill was given its name. It is a place where hawks have been coming for centuries to hunt for rodents.
