Three Brothers emigrated from Clarholz Germany

Their father explained to them that since the youngest son inheirited the farm, per tradition, they would have the best opportunity in life if they emigrated to America. Johann and Everhardt came to the US about 1850, and Christoph about 5 years later. Christoph at 15 years old, made arrangements with a captain of a small sailing vessel for

    Maybe we need to visit this place someday


    Anne BB gave me some muckerman stuff I think we already have.  She has a note on there she wnet to school with all the Blumeyer kids (on the Descendents of John C Muckerman pages 3 & 4) and the Kerckhoffs (p2) lived behind Anne’s house in a family subdivision called Huntleigh Woods in Fronterac Mo 63131.  Because she was friends with Muckerman’s she somehow got this info.

    Mudds Grove house aka Argonne House

    The Mudds Grove house was owned by several families. The Kirkwood Historical Society now operates the house as a museum. Frank and Mina Muckerman lived in the house when my father and his siblings were young. When Frank died, his casket was placed in the front room of this house. Following his death, Mina moved next door to her grandchildren who lived at 54 Hill Drive.


    Anne or Joan, one of them, thought that Granny had put a little bathroom in there. 
    Do you remember ever peeing in there either in the front or the back.  Because if the
    chauffeur slept in there, then it had to have had a bathroom in there for him, right?

    Also, was there some type of little shower thing they put outside anywhere?  Or was there
    just a hose that we could turn on to drink from?

    Papa died when I was only 7 but I have loads of memories of Papa.  But I don't remember being
    in the limo at all but that doesn't mean I wasn't.  And I have seen pictures of the limo and that
    chauffeur in the family movies.

    Do you know if papa kept the chauffeur on until he died in 1954?  Because I know that he also
    drove himself around.  He did when they lived down in Ft. Lauderdate at their motel because
    those cars are shown in our old family movies but no chauffeur in Florida where Anne was born.

    Please answer the above questions for me on what you may remember, OK?


    Other brief thoughts below.
    Joan was born when Mom and Dad lived on Carondelet in a little white cottage house with a
    white picket fence.  That address is on Joan's birth certificate.  She said that it was torn down
    long ago and that a hotel had been built there.  She was born in August 1938.  Mom has a
    newspaper clipping of that house in her scap book.  It is adorable. 

    Then they lived in Florida when they had the Miramar Motel.  Anne was born in Florida in 1940.
    Then they moved back shortly after.

    Subj: Re: at Papa's house on Argonne

    I dont think we called it anything since the north half of it was a tool shed and the south half is where the chauffer slept - he was also the gardner I think.
    We stayed away from it. 
    You probably dont remember riding in papa's limosine, do you?
    It had a window that went up and down between the front of the car and the back.
    The back of the car was huge.  Six to 8 of us could fit in the back. It a set of seats that lifted out of the floor.
    It also had no heat but it did have a thick robe that went over all of us.
    maybe you do remember
    One time to punish art and I for smoking under the porch he took us for a ride in it. It was raining and the sun came out both at the same time
