Unknown, possible Hopfinger387 viewsDarlene Acker Burzynski's mother had this picture in her possession. No one in the family knows who it is. Darlene's mother was a Haas. There were Hopfinger, Wolf, and Lander in her line. Darlene's dad was an Acker, with Reis, Rosche, and Helms in his ancestry. It’s possible that this is a Hopfinger, but it’s just a guess. The other women in the family died younger except for Christina Barbara Goedelmann who married first Hermann Acker and then Michael Rosche of Monroe County, IL. Christina Barbara Rosche nee Goedelmann was born on 8 Sep 1819 and died in 1910 and the picture would fit into her time period I believe. Contact Darlene at

Friederich Homestead114 viewsThis was the old homestead, built about 1835. Harold, David and Al were born in this house. The family that lived in it in 1849 died in the Cholera epidemic that swept the country during that period. Joe bought it from his brother, Charles, in about January of 1923. This picture was taken in 1962 while it was going through some painting and after the front porch had been removed.
The picket fenced garden that almost hid the front of the house from the road. It had permanent paths with flowering plants, rose bushes, Peonies, Lilacs, Gooseberry bushes, Rhubarb, Asparagus and vegetable beds... These were all in the distant past, stripping it of the look and feel of the warn happy homestead it had once been... Several years later it was bulldozed into a rubble that lies in a small thicket of white locust trees on the prairie...the only sounds now are the rustle of the leaves in the prairie breezes, the twitter of the birds and the occasional rustle of a cottontail rabbit.
