Notes for Walter Tschudin:
Walter Tschudin Family
Walter Tschudin, Sr. was born August 5, 1869 in Basel, Switzerland and came to the United States at the age of 19 years.He came to the home of an uncle in Platte County where and he met and later married Eliza Imhof in 1892.After farming north of Columbus for a few years, they and three children, Martha, Walter and John moved "west", namely Boone County.Here Carl, Oscar and Rose were born.The Rathbuns, Knapps, and Babbits were some of their neighbors.
In 1904, they purchased a farm across the line in Nance County.(This became known as the "home place" for the Ella and Vern Ostrander family after they bought it in 1946).
In 1920, Walter and Eliza Tschudin purchased the section known as the Gould and Baker Ranch 12 miles west of Belgrade.Later they moved to a farm in the Red Wing area.They then spent their last years in Belgrade, very content in the friendly town.
Many are the fond memories of the time when Belgrade was a "booming" town with two lumber yards, two banks, two drug stores, a jewelry shop, and stores of services of all types.The Andrew family sold many a Buick automobile as they came into general use and provided driving lessons to the new owners to assist them in learning the basics of driving a vehicle, that required more than a vocal "whoa" to stop.
The railroad was very important for both business and pleasure.The service enabled people to go visiting or shopping for a day east as far as Columbus and north to Spalding.Before the trucking business came into common use, the railroad was used to send produce (eggs and cream mainly) to markets.Livestock also was sent by rail to Omaha.
Although Eliza and Walter and most of the children have passed away, the descendants meet every June in Belgrade for a reunion.
