My grandmother; born in Hooglede, West Flanders, Belgium

I remember Gramma as being a very tiny lady; about 4 feet tall, with a big personality. She had Grampa build a still for her in the basement of their home in Wrenshall, MN. Thus the road they lived on became known as Alcohol Road.

There are two more children in addition to those listed below; Clara Ann Matten Schwer Bulfer (b. 9 April 1929) and Morris Matten, both of whom survive.
