The Kluth Family came from Germany in the late 1800's. Adolph was born in Hamburg and celebrated his 2nd Birthday on the ship comeing to America. He had two sister born in America after they landed and moved to Marysville, Missouri. Their names were Rosa, and Minnie. They later moved on to Washington where one of their older Daughters husband went to go Gold Prospecting in Alaska. They never went to Alaska but stayed in Washington where Adolph met and married Neta Beardslee. Grandma Kluth helped Neta with her children as she was a great mid-wife. Rosa and Minnie also stayed in Washington and married there. They helped each other out as they could. Adolph was a logger in the Eastern part of Washington. Neta took in other loggers to feed, wash their clothes for them and had beds in the attic for them to sleep in.
They were not rich in the things the world had to offer but they were hard working and loving people. They finally ended up in Pomeroy Washington in their old age, so they could take care of the daughter of one of their boys. Delbert the oldest loved Rodeo riding, but got broken up pretty bad so he went to work helping farmers in the area. Earnie their middle son joined the navy. When Earnie was 12 (1940) he went to work for a farmer in Davenport Washington. He worked for him until 1944. Then various Mills, and Farmers. Harold the youngest joined the Marines having his 21st Birthday with them. Harold married before the Marines Sandy his first wife and had two beautiful little girls, Sylva, and Theresa. Earnie married Nancy in La Mesa, California and they had five wonderful children, Peggy, in the Navy and Linda, Ronald, Roy, and Judy after he was discharged from the Navy. Delbert married once, Kathy, they never had any children.
I have been researching the Kluth family, and the other trees as they have come in contact with ours. I have been researching the tree for about 35 years. What fun, and enjoyment in meeting more family.
We have several reunions that we try to attend some are on the same day so we have to make choices.
I enjoy meeting new family members, and of course try to keep up with both the new and the rest.
