Notes for Mildred Caroline Mauntel:
Adolph and Mildred were married in St. Lawrence Catholic Church, in Duelm, MN. Seven children were born to Adolph and Mildred, namely: Aletha, Basil, Alan, Em mett, Frederic, Lorenz, and Eugene. Mildred attended Sentennial School and thre e years at St. Boniface. Moved to Minnesota and attended the St. Cloud Teachers College.
She wrote in 1983 when recalling her past: From my earliest childho od, the only home I remember is that of my grandparents. The earliest recollect ions date back to when Iwas about four years old. I can see Grandma as she carr ied my baby sister Hazel was laid up on it. She had just died. Mamma held siste r Emma and I up to kiss he little hands. That was the one thing I remember most vividly and the death of Grandma four years later. That made me realize the ne ed and love of a father I could not remember. I attended the Sentenial School u ntil I passed the eigth grade, then went to St. Boniface. While there I made my First Communion when I was thirteen. In my third year there, the doctor said m y sisters life depended on taking her to a higher altitude. My mother had a fri end in St. Cloud, MN so it was there we went. Mrs. Bessette became my mother's dearest friend and throught her, Mamma met and married Jacob Abfalter. Adele Be ssette and I ormed a warm and lasting friendship. We still try to see one anoth er every year. She loved our children dearlya nd they returned her affection. M oving to MN was of little avail as far as Emma's health was concerned, for in l ess than tow years she died of Spinal Meninggitis. Just at the age when we coul d have meant so much to each other. I took the Minnesota State High School Exam s, also entrance exams at St. Cloud Teachers's College. Went there two terms an d received Teacher's Certificate. Had two happy years of teaching, then married . Mamma was living on a farm, and I really loved it, the woodlands, birds and f lowers. When we married I naturally wanted to live on a farm. It was a wonderfu l place to raise our family. In 1938 Adolph's health began to fail, so we moved to Princeton, MN. Lived there a short time then World War II struck. We knew t he sorrow of little Frederic's death, but the shock of Emmett's was almost too much for us to bear. Now in my eighteth year, I am still praying for peace and freedom of depressions. I hope this copy of our family history will be perpetua ted by our dearly beloved children.
