Full Circle 157

This Full Circle began with an email. A relative found the photo and emailed me.
Hello
I am contacting you to let you know the gentleman in the picture #2525 of your files is a relative of mine.
Hiram Rodee was my great-great Grandfather. My mother was a Rodee. Her father Floyd Rodee and Elizabeth Scott (the name with the picture) were siblings.
I would love to acquire the photo if possible. I can even see if any of Elizabeths family would care to have it.
Please let me know how to proceed.
Respectfully
Tim

I was happy to mail the photo to Tim.
I heard from him by email.

Connie
I think what you are doing is such a great thing. My mother, Hirams great granddaughter, would be so pleased. She passed away 8 years ago. She was very proud of her Rodee roots. Hiram's descendants still hold reunions, both in South Dakota and New York.

Yes I will send you more information about Hiram and his family when I have a little more time.
Again, thank you,
Tim

I mailed off the photo.

Connie,
I have received your package last Thursday and am so happy to have Hiram back in the family where he belongs.

Hiram A. Rodee was born in New York state in 1837. He was a school teacher for a short time before he took up the grain milling trade. Both his father and grandfather were millers also.
He started his family in New York. He married his wife Cornelia and they had four children, Mary Adele, Leslie, Henry, and Hiram. Henry was my Great Grandfather.

Henry had four children. two of which were Floyd, my grandfather and Elizabeth, (Bessie) the name referenced on the back of the picture.

​Hiram homesteaded in Dakota Territory in 1880 settling near what is now Forrestburg, SD. He was active in local government being appointed as one of the first county commissioners, for Sanborn County. Hiram passed away in 1918. He is buried at Artesian, SD. Some of his descendants still live there in the family home.

Again I want to thank you for your efforts and wish you well.
Thanks,
Tim

I am happy that Hiram made the Full Circle trip back to relatives too!

Thanks for stopping by.

Full Circle 156

This Full Circle began when Karen left a comment on the blog. “Christian Milsten is a brother in law to my great uncle. Is this picture still available?  Thank you.” She contacted me by email and I mailed the photo to her.Mrs Chris Milstin DL antNumber 2002 (2)
Mrs Chris Milsten  Photo Number 2002
I mailed the photo and Karen said she would get back to me with some family info. 

Hi Connie:  I apologize for the delay in sending you info on Helene.   I have 2 relatives who married  sisters to Christian Milsten. Helene was married to Christian Milsten.  Christian was a brother in law to my 1st cousin, 2 times removed.  His name was Gunder Pladsen.  Gunder was married to Randine Milsten who is a younger sister of Christian.  We remain in touch with the Pladsen relative who now live by Watford City, ND.

Then my great uncle, Ole Aasen married Mari Milsten who was a younger sister of Christian's.  Ole was an uncle to my Dad.  They moved to Melfort, Saskatchwan.  Ole and Mari had 9 children.  We keep in touch with this branch of the family also.
According to Christian Milsten's obituary:  He was 
a most highly respected citizen of Gary, MN.  He came to this country at the age of 21 and settled in Freeborn County.  He was married to Helena on 12/28/1876.  Helena and he moved to Norman County in 1880 where they settled on their homestead n the town of Strand.  They lived there for 10-12 years.  Then they bought a farm in Bear Park where lived for a few years.  Then they moved to Gary went into business.  Christian died before Helena.  They had no children.

That is a short summary of how Helena Hanson is related to us.  Thank you for the picture.
Karen

It is wonderful when relatives give us a little insight into their relatives lives!
Thanks for stopping by.

Ina Ada and Bill benorden DL ant back
Ina Ada + Bill Benorden
I believe that the Benorden  family and the Zeilinger family  are somehow connected, not sure how perhaps they we both just known by the person who had the photos.
Thanks for stopping by.
Update from Iggy:
Ina was the oldest, born in 1896, she married Otto Albert Buttke.

Ada was born about 1901 and married Ivan B Picard.


William Benorden April 9 1910 -Aug 6 1974. He was married to Alice Hoppe Benorden. William is buried in Zion Lutheran Cemetery Jubilee Iowa, Black Hawk County

From this info the photo and the birth dates don't make sense.    I wonder if the girls are Ina and Ada but the boy is someone other than Bill?   Someone born between 1897 and 1900???
