4. I consider the bUl for the loss of the small launch a just one and recommend its allowance.

5. An agreement of Giesing Bros, to accept the amount, $100, is herewith in duplicate.

Later he bought out his brother and continued in business until 1911. His wife had a restaurant adjoining the saloon on the west side of Main at Pacific. In that year he sold out and organized with others the Chamois Milling Company of which he was made general manager and secretary and built a large mill at Chamois. A Catholic, Lorenz belonged to the Modern Woodmen of America, of which he later was Head Council. Residence: year 1915 Crawford Township, Linn, Osage County, Missouri.

LORENZ JOHN MERTENS.
One of the foremost industries of Osage county is the Chamois Milling Company at Chamois, of which Lorenz J. Mertens is general manager and secretary. Mr. Mertens is yet a young man, his birth having occurred near Loose Creek, Osage county, November 19, 1880. His parents. John and Agnes (Messen) Mertens, were old settlers of this state who originally came from Germany. The father is still engaged in farming near Loose Creek, but the mother has passed away. In their family were twelve children, of whom the following now reside in Chamois: Lorenz John, of this review; Frank; Peter; and Martha, a vocalist of, more than local reputation.

Lorenz J. Mertens spent his youth upon his father's farm, attending the public schools of the neighborhood. When twenty-one years of age he took a course in Beasley's Academy at Columbia, where he studied business and commercial science. In 1902 he settled in Luystown, where he clerked for a time in his uncle's store, working there for six months. At the end of that time he accepted a position as bookkeeper and general manager for the Morrison Milling Company, with which firm he was connected for one year. He then married and was engaged in business in Morrison until 1905. He also owned an establishment at Chamois, which latter he operated until 1911. In that year he sold out and organized the Chamois Milling Company, which was incorporated for twenty-five thousand dollars fully paid up. Mr. Mertens was made general manager and secretary and built a large mill in Chamois, which has a capacity of one hundred and fifty barrels per day and the business has grown from month to month ever since the company was organized. Much of its success is due to the ability of Mr. Mertens, who is still general manager and secretary. He also organized the Peoples Bank of Chamois, of which he is a director, and he is a stockholder in the Bank of Chamois. He is also interested in the International Insurance Company and holds stock in the Continental Portland Cement Company of St. Louis. He owns a handsome residence in Chamois besides business property and also holds title to oil lands in Texas.

In 1903 Mr. Mertens married Miss Anna D. Giesing, a native of Missouri and a daughter of Gerard and Rosa (Reymer) Giesing, the former a farmer of Osage county. In their family were eight children. Mr. and Mrs. Mertens are the parents of three children, Josephine, Gerard and Leona, all of whom are attending school.

Mr. Mertens is a democrat, thoroughly in accord with his party but not an office seeker. He is an adherent of the Catholic church and fraternally belongs to the Catholic Knights of America and the Modern Woodmen of America, of which latter he is head consul. At a comparatively early age he has attained to an important position in the industrial world of his native county and great credit is due him for what he has accomplished. His success is not only individual but is also a part of the development which has made Osage county the prosperous region that it is today.

Paul married Marie L. Sanserevino on 22 April 1950 in Jackson County, Missouri. Marie was born on 25 June 1920 and died on 25 July 2015 in Kansas City, Missouri at age 95.

General Notes: A 95-year-old Kansas City woman is being remembered by friends and family after an accident on Saturday, July 18, took her life.

A car hit Marie Giesing in the parking lot at Governor Stumpys Grill House in the Waldo area. Friends say Marie Giesing had walked the mile to her church, Saint Elizabeth Church at Two East 75th Street. A restaurant employee was backing up her car when she hit what she thought was a bag of trash, but when bystanders flagged down the driver, she discovered she had hit Marie.

A week later, Marie died.

God reached out and said, Come on, Marie. There’s no doubt in my mind, said one of Maries best friends, Carol Chatfield.

Marie had lived in the Waldo area for 50 years, and many in the community knew her.

Marie was also an avid walker and always on-the-go.

She was like the Energizer Bunny. Her friend remembers finding her at the back door one day, standing in the doorway with her arms raised, doing arm exercises.

Marie Giesing worked at Macys, Dillards and was once a waitress, her friend told FOX 4 Robert Townsend.

After Maries husband died almost five years ago at age 86, Marie continued to live in Waldo. Her friend says she loved to watch the children.

Marie was also described as spunky, alert and frugal.

She just really liked to spend a dollar on stuff. A dollar was kind of her thing and when she bought bananas she bought one banana.

We would hug and she told me she loved me. It was a wonderful friendship, Chatfield said. She was just a hoot. She was so funny.

Her friend says Marie recently found $20 and instead of saving it or spending it on herself, she bought things for others.

She was a very caring person. She looked out for other people, very kind, Chatfield said. She was delightful. She was truly a gift.

1923 - Lorraine Giesing Wagenbach
I arrived in Golden in the summer of 1923, My family made the trip on the train from Colorado Springs where I was born five years before. We moved into a new house in Wide Acres, which with two bedrooms was considered a new concept in housing. The following year I entered the first grade in Golden and attended Golden schools for twelve years. We rode the interurban streetcar which we boarded at "Wide Acres" station, a small green building similar to others along the interurban route. The streetcar, No.84, ran every hour and was always on time regardless of the weather. The conductor and motorman were Ted and Sam, who knew every passenger by name. The school provided free tickets for our transportation through the eighth grade, but in high school we had to pay our own fare.
Going to school was indeed the big event in our lives. Although there were two other girls in the neighborhood to play with, my sister and I met new friends, found new interests, and learned many valuable lessons through our school experiences. Teachers were revered. I especially remember Bess Wylie, who taught both my children and me our multiplication tables in the fourth grade, and my fifth grade teacher, Grace Jameson Rowe, a legendary educator. Music throughout my twelve years in Golden schools was taught by Earle A. Johnson, who commuted daily from Denver. I still sing the songs he taught and recognize the classics he introduced. He wore a wig, which was the source of constant amusement among his unsophisticated pupils. Edna S. Gray gave me an outstanding English foundation, and Mabel A. Bolitho taught me typing which I have used throughout my working years. Memorization was essential in nearly every class, and I can still recite poems that 1 learned many years ago.
Next to school, church was our big social outlet. My family attended St. Joseph's Catholic Church where under the stewardship of Father John P. Moran we thoroughly memorized the Baltimore Catechism. With only 25 to 50 families in the parish during my early years, we knew nearly all of them.
My first recollection of politics was the Al Smith-Herbert Hoover election, Catholics were an unpopular minority, and there were few Democrats. Although my family supported Al Smith, I found this affiliation a great embarrassment I can remember the long lines of cars that traveled the old Golden cement road in front of our house and then up Lava Lane (Now Quaker Street) in the weekly Ku Klux Klan parade to Castle Rock. I recall people talking of their burning the cross which I never really understood but which I greatly feared. We could see the white hooded robes of the members through the open touring cars.
The Depression of the 1930's brought changes in many lives, and although everyone was financially limited, life in Golden continued to be simple and happy and uncomplicated. We were probably all poor, but it didn't seem to bother any of us. With the family I listened to Franklin D. Roosevelt's fireside chats on the radio, which was our chief source of entertainment.
After graduation from Golden High School in 1936, I attended the University of Denver School of Commerce (Tramway Tech), commuting to Denver on the ever reliable street car. Many of my unemployed friends got coveted jobs at Coors when beer became legal. As the clouds of World War II appeared, others enlisted in the armed forces while still others found work at the Remington Arms Munitions Plant, now the Federal Center. I worked as a secretary in Denver.
In 1942 I married Bill Wagenbach in the old St. Joseph's Church built in 1899 across 14th Street from the new church. The old Catholic church was a red brick traditional church with a high steeple and a large gold cross that glistened in the sun. It had beautiful stained glass windows donated in memory of loved ones. The altar was wood, painted to look like marble, and there were a half dozen life-size statues, The communion rail and pews were carved oak. Unfortunately, prior to demolition, vandals destroyed all of the stained glass windows. The bell that pealed for over fifty years is now at the entrance of the new church.
During World War II there were shortages of tires, gasoline, sugar, butter, and meat, which were rationed. We began to eat oleomargarine which was white and came in a clear plastic bag with a small orange capsule One kneaded the orange pill into the white substance (inside the bag) and Voila: ersatz butter! Often the bag broke which made quite a spread. Soap was difficult to get so I saved all grease and learned to make my own. The rationing of shoes was not a particular hardship.
The 12th Street side of the Golden Mercantile building listed the names of all the Golden boys serving in the armed services. Those killed were marked with a gold star. We knew most of the participants and suffered with their families when casualties occurred.
The 1950's in Golden were calm and bucolic, and we reared our children in an idealistic world. Reality returned in the 60's when the children attended college and our son Jim went to Vietnam. The 70's were quiet years when Bill retired after 37 years at Coors and we began to do the things we never had time for before. My lifetime in Golden marks a period of tranquility and abundance, which may be unequaled in American history.

Lorraine married William Wagenbach in 1942 in St. Joseph Church in Golden, Jefferson County, Colorado. William was born about 1917.

General Notes: Groton, CT - Gregory D.

He was born in New London on July 31, 1980, the son of Brian Giesing of New London and Rae Leonard Giesing of Mystic. He was a loving husband to Laurel Hugh Giesing of Groton.

He would do anything for the people he cared about. Greg was born with Spina Bifida and was confined to a wheelchair all his life. He never thought anything about it except as his method of transportation. His famous quote was "I tried walking once, it's over rated." Greg was a child who lit up every life he touched and grew into a man who others sought out for guidance and advice. A wise and compassionate man he was, to know him was a privilege. Greg was an accomplished guitar player who loved to play any chance he got and wanted nothing more that to share his music with the world. He was also determined to compete in the Boston Marathon and beat the six-time first place record holder in 2008.
He also was a member of the Challenger Baseball League and participated and soared at wheelchair racing in Glastonbury. He had worked as a Black Jack dealer at Foxwoods, and also in the electronics department at Wal Mart in Norwich and before that at the Ames store in Lisbon.

Besides his wife and parents he is survived by three brothers, Jason, Anthony and Evan Giesing; a sister, Casey Giesing; a stepbrother, Anthony VonWinkle; his paternal grandparents, William F. and Marie Giesing, of Clinton; his maternal grandmother, Beverly Simpson, of Norwich; his stepfather, Charles Draughon, of Groton; and his stepmother, Linda Giesing, of New London. Greg also leaves nephews and niece, Gabriel, Nigel and Emma Giesing as well as a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and adopted brothers and sisters, too many to name, all too precious to forget.

A Graveside Service will be held on Wednesday morning, June 7, at 9 o'clock at Smith Lake Cemetery, Groton. Visiting hours will be on Tuesday evening from 5 until 8 o'clock at the Byles-Groton Memorial Home, 310 Thames St. Donations in his memory may be directed to the Spina Bifida Association, 4590 MacArthur Blvd., NW Suite 250, Washington, DC 20007.

Linda graduated from New London High School in 1974, where she played in the band. She then graduated from Three Rivers Mohegan Campus in 1990, receiving an associate's degree in science - nursing. She also received a certificate as a veterinary assistant from Three Rivers. She last worked as a case manager for Connecticut Community Care in Norwich and also worked as a home care nurse for Utopia Home Care. She had worked at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in both the orthopedic unit and the NICU as a pediatric nurse.

Linda was active in local politics serving on the New London Republican Town Committee, was a candidate for the New London Board of Education, and served on the city personnel, transportation, and handicapped commissions. She was a proud member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and after the loss of her beloved son, Derek and step-son, Greg, became active in the Survivors of Homicide. She had also testified in front of the state legislature on reporting lost or stolen guns and lived to see successful passage of that legistation.

In addition to her father, Dan, she is survived by her husband, Brian Giesing; sons, Anthony Von Winkle, Evan Giesing, and Casey Giesing, all of New London; stepsons, Jason Giesing and Tony Giesing of Norwich; her brother, Tim West and his wife, Valerie, of New London; and step-sister, Virginia Ryan. She was predeceased by sons, Baby Anthony and Derek Von Winkle and step-son, Gregory Giesing. Linda is now reunited with her special "Noonie", Mildred Wright, who stepped in as surrogate grandmother to her children until her passing. She had many aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, and nieces, but was especially close to her cousins, Nancy, Robert, and Gary Gramolini and Judy Hall, who she thought of as sisters and brothers. She had a special connection with Drew, Alli, Sal, Nick, and Gabrielle. Linda had a special love for animals which included a grey cat named Candy known for her very special talent, a black cat named Darth which was a gift from her daughter, a one-eyed pug named Rosie, along with two German shepards, Morgan and the one she personally named, Bane. She will be remembered as a kind, caring, loving, tenacious woman with a strong sense of justice. She was a woman who lost her mother and spent her whole life looking for her, a woman who lost her first born and spent her whole life imagining him.

Her children will go on living life in her memory, and her husband, Brian will go on with her in his heart for a lifetime. A graveside service will held 10 a.m. Monday at Cedar Grove Cemetery, 638 Broad St., New London.

MY LIFE:

I was told that when I was four in 1942 and my mother was pregnant with my brother Richard, we had to be removed from a flooded home in a row boat. It was near the Mississippi River near Foley, Missouri. My dad was a guard at the Lock and Dam during World War Two.

When my uncle who was in the Marine Corps came home from fighting the Japanese, he gave me a large red fire truck for my birthday. This was the same day he got married. One summer he let me use his carbine from the Marine Corps to kill snakes on my great-grandfathers farm.

I went to Immaculate Conception grade school. I was the teachers pet for all eight years because I always helped them. At the end of the school year, the nuns always gave me some gift. When I was in grade eight, I did their errands for them during school time and in the summer I would help them also.

After grade school, I was going to study to be a Catholic priest. My biggest mistake in my life was that I did not do it. God forgive me!

Then I went to St. Francis Borgia High School. No sports or anything after school because I had to ride the school bus and did not have a car. My last year at school, I was the artist for the school paper and year book.

When I became 16, (sophomore in school) I joined the National Guard (Heavy Mortar Company). Since I did not have a car, my sergeant would take me to the weekly meetings. In the summer we spent two weeks at an army base. We had training in riot control in case of a riot at the state prison. After I was 18 years old, I enlisted in the Navy but failed my physical. The Draft Board made me 4-F. I received an honorable discharge 8 years later.

My summers before I was 18, I spent walking or riding my bike around town and visiting the lady at the Draft Board and my great aunt, who was the secretary to the County School Superintendent. Also talked to the old men who spent their time sitting on the benches at the courthouse. Also spent time at the soda counters. Learned a lot from these people.

Had different jobs from 1956 to 2000. Run a bowling alley, 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. Ground up meat for a pot pie factory. Inventory control at a factory that made metal sewer pipes. St. Louis Police department telephone switchboard keeping track of beat policeman (before walkie-talkies) they used phones (call boxes) on street corners to call in once an hour. Counting money at a bank and working in the stockroom and printing department at the same bank. Pattern maker at a shoe factory. Inventory and Quality Control at a place that made wall paneling. Shipping-Receiving clerk at a shoe factory. Quality Control at a factory that made ring binders and office supplies.

Had to retire early in 2001 because the place where I worked moved to Mexico. Had to sell house and used the profit to buy a used mobile home. Over the years, four places that I worked at closed their doors. Over the years because of the closings, I had lost two homes, one mobile home and three cars.

I was fired for the following reasons:
#1- Fired because I had TB. (I did not have TB).
#2- Fired for asking for a raise in pay that I was promised.
#3- Fired for not talking to my ex wife. Both of us fired!


MY HOBBY:

Since 1985, I have been researching families that are related to me and my family. I started out with a little note book that my dad had written that had his siblings and uncles and aunts.

Then I went to a lot of cemeteries checking for relatives. Also wrote to every one in Germany that had my dad and mom's last name. After I got internet service in the 90's, I put what I had on a website. Some saw the website and sent me information from Germany, France, Netherlands and United States.

One day going to a cemetery, my son and I almost died when we were going down a hill (at bottom is Missouri River) and the brakes on the car did not work. I made a quick right turn and the car hit a ditch right at the cemetery that we were looking to check. After checking the cemetery and getting pulled out of the ditch, I drove the car 85 miles back home without brakes because it was Sunday and no repair shops were open. Found out later that the brake line broke and leaked fluid.

Now you can check on the internet for the same information that I risked my life to get. Makes it a lot easier.
