1. There is a very interesting story I am putting here for reference.........

[NI042630] I interviewed John Theodore Lint (4th child of Charles and Roxiena) on my 1991 research trip and he stated that one of the parents died (presumably the father)(Charles was 59 when George was born) leaving the other parent poor and unable to care for the five (5) boys. The boys were placed in an orphanage and later into foster homes. As a result John knows little or nothing about his parents or his brothers. John was 78 at the time of the interview which didn't help. On my second research trip in 1994 I met with Carolyn Mae Strawn (John's eldest daughter) who was helpful in researching this branch of the family. The DeKalb Co. seat in Auburn also had a lot of data on file and would warrant another visit.

[NI042810] The following piece was written by Clyde's son James Gary Lint in 1997: Clyde Lint was born in Falls City, NE on March 2, 1901. He was primarily raised in St. Joseph, MO after a short stay in Denison, KS. He went to St. Joe Benton High School and on lived in South St. Joe at 120 S. AL (King Hill district). He attended King Hill Christian Church, which along with the home, still stands! He went away to the University of Chicago when he was 16, and met his future wife Lenore Trumbly while at the University. They were married during his senior year on Mar. 8, 1922. They lived in Chicago where he had various jobs, including one with Chicago Steel Tank. In 1925, their 1st son Kenneth was born & they continued to live on the South Side of Chicago. In 1929, Clyde started his own business, "The Jiffy Line", a manufacturers rep. business. He represented many co.s, including a metal Xmas tree lite reflector, snap-in-blanks for elec. boxes, solder dippers, & several other items that are no longer in existence. In 1935 their 2nd son Gary was born & in 1936 the family moved to Berwyn, a suburb. They were there for a yr or so and then moved back to the South Side at 77th & Michigan. The business grew during World War II since many of the items were necessary to the war effort. We even had a "C" gas card which allowed us more gas for the 1942 Olds, which had automatic transmission! In 1948, the family moved to Hinsdale, IL, after Ken got married in 1946 & the neighborhood went south. Clyde was a workaholic but in the mid 1950's got involved with a summer theater & lost a great deal of money trying to keep "name" stars happy, such as Jack Palance, Debbie Reynolds, & Margeret O'Brien. But he enjoyed the greasepaint for a couple of more yrs, until the theater folded. Clyde & Lenore moved to a smaller place in La Grange, but then built their retirement house next to the original house in Hinsdale (430 East Hickory). He lived there until his death in 1972. He was cremated and his ashes interred at the family plot in Falls City, NE.

[NI042811] Genevieve was born 22 Jul 1905 in Denison, KS, the 5th child & youngest daug. of Henry Mckenzie Lint & Clara Ellen Ringer. Shortly after her birth, the family moved to St. Joseph, MO.

After her retirement Genevieve stayed in Washington working as a volunteer at an Arlington, VA Hosp. for 20 yrs. Genevieve never married except to her work & when her health began to fail, she moved to Homewood, IL to be closer to family. Her hobbies included photography, travelling & genealogy. Genevieve was a member of the King Hill Christian Church in St. Joseph. She passed on 6 Nov 1989 & is buried in the family plot in Falls City, NE at the Steele Cem..

[NI042828] Kenneth Lint was born in Chicago in 1925, & managed to survive the great depression intact with his parents. They lived on Chicago's South Side then moved to 7728 South MI where Ken went to Calumet High School. In 1943, after graduating from high school, he joined the Army was 1st assigned to Military Police duty in Roswell, NM. From there he went to Europe in 1944 as a combat engineer. Ken was in battle for Remagen Bridge [keeping the bridge up for 2 wks before it collapsed from bombing & shelling]. After his discharge in 1946 Kenneth returned to Chicago where he married the "girl across the st." Eleanor Anderson on 30 Aug. 1946. He soon went to work for his father in the electrical equipment & manufacturer's representative business. He worked several other companies in related areas, but always came back to the family business. He worked the family business until his retirement due to health concerns. Ken & Eleanor raised 3 chldrn, Cheryl, Linda, & Craig who continue to live nearby where their mom lives today in Flossmoor. Ken was an active member of the Homewood Presby Church, the Rotary, & the Electrical Association.

[NI042968] The name Deetz has been spelled several different ways with the 2 most common being Deetz and Deets.

Lydia lived during that transition period and her name was spelled both ways during her lifetime.

[NI042970] Although everything for the members of this family is recorded as happening in Baltic, Buck twp., Tuscarawas co., OH..... in 1880 they were listed on the Crawford twp., Coshocton co., OH census.

John & Rosa had 8 chldrn, 4 of which were born in IA. In the spring of 1857 the John P. Hay & Peter P. Hay families along with Dr. & Mrs. George Graham, Dr. & Mrs. Merces, Mr. & Mrs. Meese, & James Mervine traveled as a group to Clearcreek twp., Jasper co., IA. They used 7 covered wagons pulled by horses & arrived at their destination on 20 May 1857 after 45 days of travel. John P. Hay purchased 160 acres in the S.W. quarter of section 32 in Clearcreek twp., Jasper co., IA which is across from the present location of the Graham Cem. here both are buried. John P. Hay died 7 Feb 1894 as a result of injuries received from a run-away horse when the horse became frightened by steam coming from a steam feed mill. John & Rosa both got out of their buggie & John took the horse by the bridle to lead it past the mill. Steam escaping from the mill frightened the horse making it rear up, pulling John off his feet. The horse then trampled & ran over John as it ran off. John never regained consciousness & died several days after the accident. John was buried in the Graham Cem. directly across the road from his property. It is interest to note on the plat maps of 1870 that 2.5 miles due north up the road, John's bro Peter P. Hay also owned 160 acres in the S.W. quarter of section 17 in Clearcreek twp. Half way between John & Peter's farms, Alexander Lint (Rosa & Eliza's 1st cousin) had a 100 acre farm & in the N.W. corner of section 27 Conrad J. Lint (Rosa & Eliza's father) had 15 acres. The 6th & 7th generations of these Hay families still reside and have farms in this area today. This information was taken from page 338 of a History of Mingo, Jasper co., IA & 1870 plat maps of the Clearcreek twp (twp. 81 N., rng. 21 W.) Jasper co., IA. Eliza also had a twin sis Elizabeth who supposedly marries a Frederick Knepper (a Knepper is also on the Hay side of the family). Peter Hay who is Eliza's husb. has 160 plus acres of land located on section 17 in Clearcreek twp., Jasper co., IA valued at $50 per acre (at time of article) & one of the finest houses in several co.s valued at $4000 with orchards & groves. He held the Co. offices of Assessor, Clerk & Supervisor. This information was found in a bio page 601 from the History of Clear Creek Twp.

1. John George Lind/Lint (b.27Jan 1792) is a strange fit into this family for a couple of reasons; first is his having a middle name when none of the other siblings have one. Why? Secondly he was babtized in a different church from all the others. Why? Is he really a member of this family?
