The Broder Boysen Family
Broder Boysen was born in Holstein, Germany on Nov. 25, 1850. He married Katherine Petersen on June 22, 1872 in Germany. She was born in Germany on Aug. 6, 1852. Four of their children were born in Germany. They were: Richard, August, Margaret, and Siegfred.. Broder, his wife and children came to the United States in April of 1880. They settled in Madison County.
Broder had a brother, Matt, who lived in California. Matt had a son, Rudolph Boysen, who experimented with plants. He discovered the "Boysenberry" by crossing a blackberry, loganberry, and a raspberry. This was done at Anaheim, California and the berry was promoted by the Walter Knott's Berry Farm in 1927. The berry was named after its founder and called Boysenberry.
Broder Boysen lived on the farm until 1911 when he and his wife moved to Madison. He died on July 21, 1930. A short time later his wife, Katherine, died on August 3, 1930. They were both buried in a Madison Cemetery.
Many of the children of Broder Boysen remained in the Madison area until their death. Some of his children died quite young.
