Amanuensis Monday - Rosiere School Photo

Clipping from the "Algoma Record-Herald", unknown date
"JOHN MURPHY was the teacher when this picture of the Rosiere school was taken about 1907 or 1908.

The picture originally belonged to Mr. and Mrs. Hubert Guilette and was provided the Record-Herald by the daughter, Mrs. Lewis (Hazel) Lemens.

Although not listed in rows, the following are among the pupils pictured:

Emil Kaye, Agnes Novak, Anna Tlachac, Emma Kaye, Xavier Naze, Leona LeDocq, John Hucek, Laura Cayemberg, Emil Dlorig, Frances Svoboda, Emily Kaye, Steve Tlachac, Frank Cayemberg, Martin Joseph Cayemberg, Henry Cayemberg, Lucy Cayemberg, Ella Cayemberg, Felix Cayemberg, Augusta Martin, Eddie Undlack, John LeCloux, Adele LeDocq, John Dlorig, Charles LeDocq, Fred Naze, Fred Charles, Henry DeVillers, John Hucek, Joe Tlachac, William Hucek, Josephine DeVillers, Philip DeVillers, Math Tlachac, Owen DeVillers, Harry DeVillers, Ida Wautlet, Madeline Wautlet, Bill Andre, Anna Cayemberg, Agnes Tlachac, Mayme DeVillers, Ella Andre, Alice Andre and Henry Vandermause.

The identification was provided Mrs. Lemes by some of these early Rosiere pupils."

So sad that it isn't by row!  It would be great to see all the Cayembergs.  I don't have pictures of all of them.  Lots of familiar names.  Names of family members and possible family members.  I've seen many of these names in funeral cards that I have, but haven't made connections with.  Seeing all these names helps to remind me that they may not all be related.  They may have been school friends as well.

Sunday's Obituary - Mrs. Nick Uelman

Unknown Wisconsin newspaper clipping
"Mrs. Nick Uelman [hand-dated Nov. 30, 1961]

Funeral services for Mrs. Nick Uelman, 76, West Bend, who died today at St. Joseph's hospital there, will be Monday at 9 a.m. at Millers Funeral home, Kewaskum, and at 9:30 a.m. at St. Michael's church at St. Michael.  The Rev. Matthew Urban will officiate.

Mrs. Uelman had been in ill health for six months.  She was born April 20, 1885, near St. Killian and lived there until 1921.  Between 1921 and 1958 she resided in the St. Michael area.  She moved to West Bend three and one-half years ago.

In 1908 she married Andrew Delling, who preceded her in death in 1915.  She married Nick Uelmen April 5, 1921, at St. Killian.

Surviving are her widower; one daughter, Mrs. Roman Boegel, Theresa; three step-children, Mrs. Herbert Donath, West Bend, Frank Uelman, West Bend, and Elroy Uelman, West Bend; 13 grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Mrs. Al Herriges, Wayne Center, and Mrs. Ben Wondra, Theresa.

Friends may call at the funeral home after 2 p.m. Sunday until the time of services."

Very odd that they don't mention her maiden name or parents in the obituary, but I suppose they may not have known (or felt it important).

NOTE:  Surname is spelled Uelman and Uelmen in this article.  I have seen several variations in different articles and memorial cards.
