My mom's side of the family is Swedish (and still lives in Sweden) and she instilled in me lots of Swedish heritage and traditions which has made me who I am today. My dad's side of the family is German and Irish and the most likely the side of the family I get all my freckles from. Family is so important, and welcome everyone to discover more about them, their history, and share about their loved ones who make up the history of who we are!

Mr. William Benning Dies Suddenly Alone in the Hay Loft of His Barn. - Funeral Yesterday Afternoon. A sudden and unexpected death occurred on Sunday morning, the circumstanding which are sad in the extreme. Mr. William Benning, one of the old and well known citizens of Clinton county, residing on his farm one and a half miles north-west of Camanche, came to Clinton on Saturday afternoon to do some trading. Before leaving for home he indulged somewhat in liquor, but not to excess. Reaching his home shortly after dark Mr. Benning went to his barn to sleep, preferring the hay loft to the house. His son went to the barn at about eleven o'clock and insisted upon his father coming to the house. The old gentleman refused to do so, saying he was comfortable and would remain in the barn. At about twelve o'clock the son again went to the barn and made an unsuccessful effort to induce his father to come to the house. At 4 o'clock the son made another visit to the hay loft and was horrified his father cold in death. The young man hastened to the house and notified the family. The nearest neighbors, some half-mile distant, were summoned and the body was removed to the house. Considerable difficulty was experienced in getting the body down from the loft as the deceased was a very large man, weighing some 240 pounds. With the use of ropes and the assistance of several men this was finally accomplished. Mr. Benning was about seventy years of age, and had resided in the county for many years. He leaves a wife and several children, all grown, to mourn his death. The funeral occurred from his residence at two o'clock yesterday afternoon and was quite largely attended.

George Herbert Walker Bush
George Herbert Walker Bush was the 41st President of the United States. From his humble beginnings in New England to the highest office in the land, Bush's journey is a fascinating one. George H. W. Bush was born on June 12, 1924, in Milton, Massachusetts, into a family of esteemed lineage and business acumen. The seeds of leadership were sown early in his life, with a father who served as a United States Senator and an influential presence in the world of finance. Raised with strong values of integrity, compassion, and duty, young George developed a sense of responsibility that would shape his path for years to come. Enlisting in the Navy during World War II, he displayed courage and valor as a naval aviator, surviving harrowing combat missions and earning prestigious honors for his bravery. His experiences in the war ignited a sense of camaraderie with his fellow servicemen and fostered a lifelong respect for those who serve their country. After the war he attended Yale University. Graduating Phi Beta Kappa in just two and a half years, he embarked on a successful career in the oil industry, and his path eventually led to serve the nation he loved. Entering the realm of public service, he served as a member of the House of Representatives and as a United States Ambassador to the United Nations. His diplomatic finesse and dedication garnered respect from both sides of the aisle. But it was his term as Vice President under Ronald Reagan that solidified Bush's place in history. His steadfast loyalty and measured leadership during a transformative era in American politics showcased the qualities that would later earn him the highest office in the land. As the 41st President of the United States, George H. W. Bush faced challenges on the domestic and international stage. From navigating complex foreign policy issues, such as the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War, to addressing pressing domestic concerns, his presidency was defined by a sense of duty, pragmatism, and a commitment to unity. Beyond the realm of politics, George H. W. Bush's legacy is etched in his compassion and dedication to philanthropy. His post-presidency years were marked by a profound desire to make a difference in the lives of others, from humanitarian efforts to disaster relief initiatives, exemplifying the belief that service is a lifelong calling.

Walter Elias Disney
Animator, producer & director, screenwriter gone business owner and founder of the Walt Disney Corporation, Walter Elias "Walt" Disney will forever have a place in our hearts. Entertainment Magnate, Motion Picture Pioneer, Film Producer, Animator, Theme Park Mogul, Voice Actor. Most remembered for creating 'Mickey Mouse,' 'Donald Duck,' and a host of other cartoon characters. He was awarded a total of 32 Oscars, more than any other person, for his achievements in films. His father was always seeking success in many occupations, but always finding failure, and the Disney family was always poor. Walt found that he could escape his father's harsh discipline by drawing, and, in 1917, when he was 16 years old, he lied about his age to join the American Red Cross Ambulance Corps. When he was mustered out at the end of World War I, he set up shop as a commercial artist in Kansas City, Missouri. There he was introduced to the profession of animation, in which he excelled. Moving to Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, in 1923 to be with his more successful brother, Roy, he began drawing commercially, making a modest living by drawing for the "Alice" series of cartoons, about a live-action girl who travels to the world of animated cartoon animals. In 1927, his first really successful commercial cartoon, featuring 'Oswald the Rabbit,' became a success with Universal Pictures, but he lost the rights to the character when he was sued by his distributor. From then on, he insisted on owning the distribution rights to his creations. In 1928, Walt Disney created 'Mickey Mouse.' His third 'Mickey Mouse' film, "Steamboat Willie," was the first animated cartoon motion picture to use synchronized sound and became an overnight success. He was the voice of the character for the first ten years of the cartoon. In 1934, Disney pioneered the first full length cartoon movie, "Snow White," and again, critics were overcome by the sheer popular response of the public to the movie. From 1940 until his death, he was an FBI informant, reporting to Hoover and his crew on anyone in Hollywood he suspected of being a leftist. In 1950, he produced his first live-action film, "Treasure Island," and in 1955, he opened his first theme park, "Disneyland" in Anaheim, California. Prior to his death, he began work on his latest theme park in Orlando, Florida, "Walt Disney World." His brother, Roy, the business genius behind the scenes, continued to run the company, for decades after Walt's death. Shortly after his death, the Disney Company executive board was shown a short film that he made 99Asset just before his death, where he addressed each board member by name, telling him what he expected of him, and ending the film by saying "I'll be seeing you." Walt Disney was one of few Americans to be honored with a United States postage stamp issued less than two years after his death (the United States Postal Service prefers to issue stamps at least ten years after a person has died; an exception being made for United States presidents), when a 6 cent stamp was issued in September, 1968, in his honor.
