Notes
a. Note:   Joseph "Henry" Von Lehmden was born on November 30, 1874 on the Von Lehmden Family Farm. He was a son of Frank (F.H.) and Marianne (Klostermann) Von Lehmden. At age 22, Henry married Mary Sabers on January 19, 1896 at St. Boniface Church, New Vienna. A few years later, after the marriage, Henry bought his homestead farm in July 1901. Henry (J.H.) Von Lehmden, a gentle, soft-spoken man, was hardworking and a good provider. He enjoyed an incisive mind, and although his education was limited to elementary school, he astounded others with his ability to solve math problems mentally and helping one of the siblings who had skipped fourth and sixth grades master fractions and decimals. A slender 5' 8", he was fair skinned and had the rare combination of deep blue eyes and black hair. Ahead of others in the neighborhood, he was the first to own a car, generate electricity for the farm, pipe water for the cattle, and have a record player with a sizable collection of records for which he himself shopped as a rule. A lover of music, he played the accordion, yodeled, and arranged frequent sing-alongs for home entertainment. For these he provided an organ and a piano. He and each of the children played a mouth organ. A caring man, he readily came to the rescue of his neighbors and a Mr. Wessels for whom he donated skin after sustaining severe extensive burns from a steam threshing engine. A sincere, practicing Catholic, he and his wife Mary and the children prayed the rosary daily during Advent, Lent, and October. All had to kneel erect. During his two month bout with painful cancer, he was uncomplaining. He died on March 29, 1921, age 45.
