Birth: Aug. 24, 1906

Washington County
Illinois, USA
Death: Jun. 7, 1939
Wheat Ridge
Jefferson County
Colorado, USA

My Dad was born and raised on the Brinkmann Farm North of New Minden, IL. and farmed with his father. He married my mother, Elda Maschhoff on 2-10-1929 and they lived on the Brinkmann Farm with Grandpa. My brother and I were born on the farm: Roger A. Brinkmann 11-21-1929 & Hilbert P. Brinkmann 11-15-1932.

After becoming ill with T.B. for some time, my Dad went by train to the Lutheran Sanitarium in Wheat Ridge, CO for care, where he resided for 4 years,until he passed away. I was only 2-1/2 years old when my Dad went to Colorado, so I really have no memories of my Dad being at the farm. My Dad and Mother and Grandpa & Grandma Brinkmann are buried in St John's Lutheran cemetery at New Minden, Illinois.

My brother Roger and I and my mother made one trip by train to Colorado to visit my Dad and that is really the only memory that I have of seeing my Dad. I do have memories of living on the Brinkmann farm during those 4 years with Grandpa Brinkmann, who helped take Good care of us. I also have some fond memories of receiving Christmas Boxes from the 3 Uncles in Denver CO.

In the late summer of 1939, after my Dad passed away, we had a Public Sale of all the Farm Equipment. Grandpa, then moved in with his son Walter & family until he passed away in January of 1940.

Mother, Roger & I then moved to Hoyleton, IL and lived with my Great Aunt Lena Maschhoff for nearly two years. We then moved to the Maschhoff Home place North of Hoyleton. I attended First Grade at New Minden Lutheran Schooled and then Hoyleton Lutheran School.
