Hi Andrea, this is Lisa Davis again. Im happy to give you the information you have requested on my Grandma Emma Susanne Josefine Kannenberg. She is my grandmother on my mothers side. Emma was born to John Carl Kannenberg and Amma Krasser in Kirchhayn Wisconsin on Nov. 28 1888. Kirchhayn was a German settlement and Emmas Grandfather, Carl F. Kannenberg (I have one picture of him) was one of the first settlers. They owned alot of land and were farmers. I have more dates and information on Carl and others if you are interested. Emma had a sister, Martha Kannenberg who was born in Kirchhayn also. But I have no other information on her except a beautiful picture of Emma and Martha when they are around 17. My Grandmother Emma lost contact with her sister Martha before they were both married, Grandma always regretted that. Useing Marthas social security number she tracked Martha to New York City and found out she was married to a man with the last name of Parker (we think his first name is Harry). But Grandma Emma never saw her again (so sad). So ofcourse I am keenly interested in any info. you may have on Martha and her family. But, back to Emma. Emma went to school as far as 4th or 6th grade. (I have a picture of her in grade school). She was a maid to a jewish household before she met her husband whom she met at a dance. (Grandpa loved to dance and was a good dancer). Emma and Emil Fredrick Wilhelm Albl were married on June 15, 1912 in Jackson, Washington Wisconsin. Im told that Grandpa rented a buggy with fringe on top for the occashion, which thrilled my Grandmother. (I have wedding pictures). They had 4 children. In order of birth they are: Howard Emil Albl born March 27, 1915. Uncle Howard is still alive with his wife Vera. They are living in Wisconsin. They were unable to have any children. They are a sweet couple. Their second child was Orvilla Emma Albl, born March 26 1919 in Port Washington Wisconsin. Orvilla married Herbers John Wildermuth. Orvilla became a school teacher. They had 3 sons. Orvilla is still alive and living in Wisconsin. The third and four children were twins: Adelin Lillian Albl born Jan. 5, 1926 in Sheboygan Wisconsin. Adeline married Joseph Reichenberger. They had 5 children. I adored Aunt Adeline and Uncle Buddy (Joseph). They have both died. The last child was my mother and Adelines twin sister: Arline Katherine Albl born Jan. 5 1926. Arline married Donald Albert Rhyner and they had two daughter; Linda Sue and Lisa Ann (me). My mother is an angel, one of the kindest hearted persons I have ever been honored to know. We are very close. Now back to Emma Susanne Josephine Kannenberg (Grandma) She was quite shy and very hard workiing. She was very good at cooking and baking, everything from German dishes to doughnuts. She was also and excellent seamstress. She sewed alot of my mothers clothes growing up and some of her formal gowns when my mother was in college. Emma was a well dressed woman, very fashion aware. She loved pretty things and had good taste. She belonged to a few womens clubs, one in which they played cards. I personally have very few memorieds of Grandma Emma because she lived in Wisconsin and I was born and grew up in Calif. The last time I saw her was when I was around 8 years old. She always wore a dress as far as I know. She was a very good woman. I have alot of pictures of her that we recieved upon her death April 19, 1969. Emma was on heart medicine for years. She had a heart attack and ended up in the hospital. While in the hospital she had a second attack and died. Grandpa Albl (her husband) died 7 months later. The family always said he died of a broken heart, he was so lonely after she died. Grandpa Albl (Emil) was a real out doors man. He loved fishing and hunting. He owned severl of his own businesses and ended up in meat business. Grandpas grand children adored him. I have very clear loving memoried of this teddy bear/ Santa Clause man. I worshipped him and so did all the neighbor children! I have more information if you are interested and lots of wonderful picture. Once again, if you have any information on Marth Kannenber I would be so greatful, ive spent hours looking for her. Im glad to have helped you. Take care. And write in at daviswerefamous@juno.com Sincerely, Lisa
