This project started with an
Anthropology course in Kinship while I was at Iowa State in
1973. At that time I got information from several people,
including Jim Condon (Condon and Kleckner families), Mrs.
Frances Rogers Kleckner (Kleckner family), Mrs. Sophie Ethen
Finnegan and Fr. Roscoe Finnegan (Weber and Ethen families),
Mrs. Agnes Dowell Rosenbaum (Mitchell family), Mrs. Lucy Baird
Patrick and Mrs. Hilda Kagel Baird (Milton family), and Mrs.
Alex Liston Fischer (Liston family).
In the latter 70's and into the 80's my mother, Betty Condon, continued to collect information, especially on the Kleckner family, and has continued to keep me informed of events (mainly deaths) in all of the families.Since re-starting this project I've gotten additional information from many sources. The table below shows which individuals have helped for each family branch.
|Condon||William Condon [of Illinois], Mary Ann Little, Ed
Ackerman, Mrs. Pat Condon Frank, Mrs. Adrian Hentges, Mrs.
Gerald Hentges, Jim Burke, Mrs. Mary Condon Rice, Doris
Condon, Peg Huffstutler, Sally Moag, Maureen Moag, Kathryn
Edwards, Eileen Edwards
|Kleckner||Jim Weber, Connie Fox Lievrouw, Todd Helfter|
|Gilles||Todd Helfter, Emily Kuntz, Sr. Catherine Gilles
|Ethen||Darrell Schulte,Tom Steichen, Kathy Severance, Mary Kay
Amberg, Denny Ethen, Stephen Schafer
|Meyer/Weber||Don Drimmel, Rose Hemmesch (who compiled the Meyer book in the 1970s)|
|Milton||Don Patrick, Lou Geiger, Allyn Milton
|Mitchell||Mrs. Margaret Wright Schaub|
I'd be remiss if I didn't especially acknowledge the help from Lou Geiger, Mary Ann Little, and Mary Kay Amberg who I've corresponded with extensively, and who have provided a wealth of information. I got a tremendous amount of information from a book on the Milton family, compiled by Don Patrick, and from a book on the Meyer family, a copy of which was provided by Don Drimmel.
I've also gotten help from various other people who have corrected photo identifications, dates, places, etc. I apologize for any errors contained herein--please let me know if you have corrections.
Thanks to all who have
A special note of
thanks, January, 2013.
I was saddened to recently learn of the death of Mary Ann Little of Albany and Salem, Oregon. Mary Ann contributed a wealth of information on the Condon family--not only of her own line, descending from Mary Ann Condon Leonard, but also regarding other family lines. In particular, she sent me many photographs of historic value that I have posted in the Condon photo section. I'll always appreciate her important contributions.
