Memories of Emeline Rozzella McClaskey– Ingels Scheidegger

Aunt Emeline

1913-2005

Born 1913, the lady who wrote these memories is my grand aunt. Aunt Emeline as I grew up knowing her is my  grandmother’s oldest sister.  These memories are dated: December 27, 1999, and were transcribed by her daughter.  I am grateful that these memories were shared with the family, and am grateful even more to have this insight to the generations past.  By knowing Aunt Emeline, I have only one hand between myself and the people she remembers in these pages, her parents and grandparents.  I will have some notes at the end of the piece. Parts having to do with common ancestry from a generation or two back will be highlighted.

The Robert McClaskey Family

I am going to start this with what I know about my grandparents.

My grandfather McClaskey was born near Milan, Missouri on October 26, 1862. His name was Robert Reason McClaskey1. His parents were James and Elizabeth McClaskey. Grandpa has seven brothers and sisters. They were William Hall, Catherine, John, Elizabeth, Daniel, Robert, Willard, and Mary Jane. My grandmother McClaskey was Rozzella Clapp, she was born near Trenton, Missouri. She had two sisters and three brothers that I know of, Kate, Betty, John, Nute and Lee. They were all born around Trenton, Missouri. Grandpa and Grandma had five children. Harrison, Elizabeth, John (my father), Arthur and Ernest. Harrison married a lady from Texas named Sally and they had one son Charlie. I never saw any of them. Elizabeth married Harry Sparks and they had 13 children. John married Cordelia Stuart and had six children. Arthur married Grace House and they never had any children. and were divorced. He then married Lillie Snyder and they had eight children. Ernest married Thelma Graves and they had four children.

The Stuart Family

My grandpa George Stuart was born in Illinois in 1854. He had a brother Franklin, sister Elvatte, brothers Andrew, John, and William all born m Iconium, Iowa. Grandma Stuart was Emeline Murphy, Born January l, 1882.  She was also born at Iconium, Iowa. They had 12 children Emeline, John, Rhoda. Mary Jane, twins Livi and Clara, Julia, William, Jesse, Herriett, Rachel, and Lillie Bell. All were born m Appanoose County, Iowa. Grandma and Grandpa Stuart had eight children Frank, Essie, Edith, Roy, Ellen, Ona, Cordelia (my mother), and Lewis.

My mother was born in Iconium, Iowa, March 18, 1884. My dad was born in Milan, Missouri on August 27, 1884. They were married in Oklahoma November 29. 1912. They lived in Oklahoma until September 24, 1913 when they and dad’s parents and two brothers went to Matheson, Colorado in three covered wagons.

My parents had six children: Emeline, Pearl, William (Bill), Lillie, Alice Lorene, and Bryan. I was born in Cheyenne, Oklahoma (Roger Mills County). All the other brothers and sisters were born in Matheson, Colorado, except Bryan, who was born at Glade, Kansas. I was only 2 weeks old when my parents left Oklahoma. I don’t know how long it took them to get from Oklahoma to Colorado, but we stayed with Marion and Sadie Ashcraft in Colorado until my grandparents got a farm of their own and my dad got a job. Grandma McClaskey was a midwife and could take care of most any kind of sickness. She was called on most often to deliver babies. She was with my mother when all but the last two of our family was born. After grandma and grandpa moved to Western Colorado, Aunt Sadie Ashcraft took her job of helping the sick. They both should surely have a star in heaven.

My dad had itchy feet and never stayed in one place very long. So about a year after my grandparents moved to Western Colorado, we also moved there (1920). I started to school there. We stayed there two years, and then moved back to Matheson.

My grandparents moved to Osgood, Missouri, where they lived the rest of their lives. Grandpa died September 1931 and grandma died August 5, l 941. They are both buried in a country cemetery between Osgood and Milan, Missouri.

We moved to Glade, Kansas in 1924, where we lived when Bryan was born on September 30, 1925. We moved to Goff Kansas that same year around Christmas time. Then in 1926 we went back to Colorado and lived there until my mother died February 14, 1928. When my mother died we all had scarlet fever and she died of a miscarriage2. I was 14 1/2 at the time. We stayed in Colorado until about April of that year, and then moved back to Goff, Kansas, to be near my Aunt Lillie and Uncle Art, who helped us kids so much until some us were grown. My dad and I worked for the. Hanna Poultry and Egg Company until 1930, when we were both transferred to Horton, Kansas, where I met Frank Ingels who was 20 years old. He was born in Netawaka, Kansas, on March 13, 1910. We were married in Atchison, Kansas on September 17, 1930. We lived in Atchison for four years. Our son Marvin Eugene was born there on August 5, l931. Then Frank was transferred back to Horton. Our second son Kenneth Charles was born on March 1, 1937. Then we moved to St. Joseph, Missouri and our first daughter Darlene Louise was born on October 26, 1940.  We then moved to Holton, Kansas where our second daughter Joyce Maxine was born on May 30, 1945.

I have lived around and in Holton ever since. I have lived around Holton for 54 years. Frank died of a heart attack on January 23, 1966. I sold our farm and moved into Holton in March of 1966. I sold our produce business and went to work for the Ben Franklin Store and worked there eight years. I worked part time for different stores after I retired in 1974. I also sat with some people who could not take care of themselves.

In 1978 I married George Scheidegger. I had been a widow for 12 1/2 years when we were married. He died October 3, 1986.

The next year my son Marvin died on October 31, 1987. He had heart trouble too, He was 56 years old.

Debra has a son Robert and daughter, Stephanie. Linda had one daughter Heather. They lived all their married life in Topeka, Kansas. Elise and Marvin’s daughters still live in Topeka. Marvin worked for Hallmark Cards before getting on at the post office in Topeka. He worked there until he passed away.

Kenneth married Carol Coble July 3, 1957 and they had three children. Robert was born October 14, 1959, Sherry was born July l 5, 1961, and Susan was born November 15, 1966. Kenneth and Carol was later divorced. Kenneth married Mary Beth Wright on June 9, 1989. They have no children of their own but Mary Beth had an adopted daughter Debbie. Robert had a daughter Michelle and a son Jason. Sherry had two daughters Karrie and Shanon. Susan is waiting for her first child soon.

When we were kids and lived in Colorado, we had lots of fun. We were poor as church mice but so was everyone else. Every Sunday someone in the neighborhood had a carryin dinner and that was a big deal then. The older kids played baseball and the younger ones played hide and seek, Annie over the house or blind mans bluff and some other games I have forgotten about in 75 years were favorite games.

We had dear friends Alice, Olive, Walter and Gladys Ashcraft, Kenneth and Mildred Johnson, Edith and Edna Bo1denec and many other kids to play with and to go school with.

My mother (Cordelia Jane Stuart McClaskey) never saw any kind of an electric appliance before she died. But she did see an electric light once.

I went to seven different schools to get my 8th grade education. After mama died I never got to go to school any more. As I was the oldest I had to stay home and care for my younger brothers and sisters. I always wanted to be a nurse, and I have helped a good many sick people. I would do any kind of help for someone in need. I have lived in Southern Heights Apartments for 8 years and have helped lots of the people that need help. I am getting to the point where my health won’t let me help as much as I would like, I have ‘ in my feet and knees, but I like living here.

In 1937 my dad and stepmother, my brothers Bill and Bryan and sister Lillie all moved to Oregon. Where they lived the rest of their lives. I saw my dad once after they moved out there. He and my stepmother had two girls after they moved to Oregon. I have seen one of them several times, but the other one I have never seen. In 1941 my youngest sister Lorene moved there and I didn’t see her for 25 years. In 1954 my sister Pearl moved to Oregon and I was here by myself as far as brothers and sisters. We never had the money to go out there and they didn’t have the money to come back to Kansas. In 1946 my sister Lillie, her husband Orvin and their four sons came back for a visit. My brother Bryan came back a few times to as his wife’s family lived in Horton.

In 1966 I took the train to Oregon and stayed six weeks I got to see most of my nieces and nephews, most l had never seen. I have made 8 or 9 trips out to Oregon since 1966. The last one was October 2, 1993. My children gave me a ticket for my 80th. birthday. My son Kenneth went with me.  My son Marvin and my daughter Darlene went with me once also.

I try to call my sisters once a month to keep up with family news. All my sisters have had a lot of bad health the last 3 or 4 years. I lost a sister in 1998. Thee are only myself, Pearl, and Lorene left.

My brother Bill got killed in a car wreck on January 9, l 962 and my brother Siren died of a heart attack on November 12, 1975. I lost a great-nephew, Billy Rowe in 1993 and another one Earl Rowe earlier. I also lost my nephew Alvin Rowe 10 years ago. He had heart trouble. All my Oregon relatives that have passed away are buried in the Miller Cemetery at Silverton. Oregon. My two brothers, my father, two brother-in-laws, one uncle and one aunt, three nephews, two nieces and now one sister. My aunt Lillie’s father Mr. Suyer, a friend from Kansas is also buried there. I still have one aunt 86 living in Dolares, Colorado, Aunt Thelma, my uncle Ernest’s wife.

Things I Can Remember From When l Was A Kid

The first thing I can remember was when my brother Bill was born. I was about 4 years old and I ask how he got here and grandma told me the mail carrier had brought him. I looked for days for the paper he came wrapped in. When Lillie was born I was six years old and I knew the mailman didn’t bring her. When I was about 5 my uncle Art had to go to the army. It was World War I. Grandma had a going away party for him and of course I went to sleep at the party and didn’t get to tell him good by. I cried all the next day because I thought I would never see him again. But he did come back safe and sound. My uncle Art and uncle Ernest were very dear to me when I was a kid, they took me so many places with them.

I finally got old enough to go to school and I really liked school and was a good student. I got good grades most of the time. My sister Pearl and I went to school with Alice Ollie Ashcraft and I’m good friends with them to this day. There was also Gladys Ashcraft and so many more that I can’t remember that have passed on.

Gladys mother had a baby girl November 9, 1919, Mama had sister Lillie on November 9. 1919, and Aunt Sadie had Walter on December 1, 1919 and the three families were close neighbors and we lived 20 miles from town, so about once a week two of the mothers would take the cream and eggs to town and buy groceries and supplies and the other mother would stay home and keep all the kids, including the three babies. All three were nursing so that mother just fed all three of them. When I was a kid we never got to go to town except to the fair in the fall. We would get 25 cents to spend and we really thought we were rich. The first job I ever had was helping a fiend of mama’s with housework. I got $3.00 per week and I was able to get myself and the other kids some nice clothes.  Mama made all our clothes; you could get enough material for a dress for 75 cents and nice slippers for a $1.00 a pair. The next job I had was working for Hanna Poultry and Egg Company. I was 15 years old. There I broke eggs and candled eggs for 20 cents an hour. I also picked chickens for 3 cents each in the wintertime. I worked for Hanna’s until I got married. I was l 7 years old when I married Frank Ingels. l did that kind of work all my life until 1966 when Frank died after 36 years together. Frank and I owned two produce stations together. We sold the first one and started farming and years later we sold the farm and went back to the produce business, which we still owned when Frank died.

When I had my 75th Birthday the kids had a nice party for me with an open house. The kids gave me a nice sewing machine as a present. I have always liked to sew and have sewn all though the yeas. I made most of the girl’s clothes. I even made Darlene’s winter coats. When I was 80 years old they gave me a ticket to Oregon. This was in 1993. I went to see my relatives out there. My niece had a family reunion on the 3rd of October and I got to see lots of family I wouldn’t have gotten to see otherwise. We had a great time. I met two cousins I had never known before and all my sisters were there. Also most of my nephews and nieces from Oregon and Washington.

Marvin was always accident-prone; when he was about one year old I left him asleep in his crib with my sister to watch him, while I went to the store for groceries.  My sister went to sleep and when she woke up she didn’t hear him and he had tried to get out of the crib and caught his head in the crib and nearly choked to death The doctor said if I had been 3 minutes later he would have-been gone. He also fell with a glass in his hand and broke it and cut his chin and had to have stitches taken in it, he had that scar until he died.  If anything was going around at school he always brought it home to the other kids. He brought home the mumps and two week later Darlene got them, Kenneth and Frank got the next day, Joyce and I got them, the next day and we had to get Franks mother to come take care of us all. Frank sat up on the side of the bed to shave and had a backset and was down another week and a half. Frank did not want to get them so he would peek in the crack in the door to see how the sick were doing and he had them the worse. Marvin was always so sick with all his childhood diseases. Kenneth never had anything very hard and the girls never had things bad either. The measles were the worst for them. Kenneth and Joyce always had the croup every winter. Kenneth had lots of earaches guess that all goes with raising a family.

Marvin was drafted into the Marines in 1952 and was m California for two years. He was discharged in 1954. Kenneth passed his physical but was never called to serve.

1994

This year I went to Kenneth’s and stayed three weeks in June and they took me to Colorado to see my dear friend Ollie and Glen Wilson. Then at Christmas time I went again to Kenneth’s and stayed over Christmas and they brought me back to Topeka where we met all my other kids and had Christmas Dinner with them and then Kenny and Darlene brought me on home.
