The home of Theodore & Isabelle Siewert is still in the family! Jay, their grandson, and his wife Rapee sent some photos of the homestead–then and now!

Tidbits from Dean… February 5, 2007

-”I don’t know how your Grandma was, but the Siewert clan seemed to be a pretty close-mouth group. Joyce is perhaps the best at story telling of the lot.”

-”My grandma, Isabelle, was very tight lipped and proper. It was sometime around the late 60’s… Grandma had the card club over and they were talking about some mutual friend one of them had seen when they were out shopping. The person of discussion was showing failing capacity due to age/illness and had food stains on her blouse. I just remember grandma commenting that she hoped she died before anything like that would ever happen to her….. We’re all a bunch of good german stoics.”

-”The only story about herself (if you can call two sentences a story) was that she had almost lost a finger to a sickle-bar mower when she was much younger. She didn’t talk much more about her kids. She did credit my Dad’s milk route to being the cause of his bad knees and said he worked too hard.”

Mom sent me a box of goodies for my project.  Tucked inside were a few negatives–copies of some family portraits she had gathered years before.  I was amazed and thrilled to see the images after I scanned them!  I would count us as very lucky to have family portraits that go so far back.  (Grandpa Dickel is my great-great-great grandfather!)  If you’re unsure of who everyone is, check out the family tree.

PS  Friedrich Wilhelm Siewert apparently went by his middle name, Wilhelm….

Thanks Ma!!!

Do you have the Siewert Nose? July 14, 2006

The Siewert Nose

All growing up I’ve heard of the “Siewert Nose”–in fact I still think I might have one myself! I asked my mom to describe it and tell me who had it…….

“The Siewert’s have it… Grandma Siewert, Mother, Beaulah, and Joyce have it… I have it along with Pam, Jill, Janna, etc… YOU may have it if you’re lucky… look at my mother’s HS graduation picture and mine and you should see what I mean… ~Jean”

I’m going to track down those photos and try to post them, as well as compare it to a picture of MY nose! Do you have the Siewert Nose? Care to share a picture?
