He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Engineering and Applied Sciences. He was also awarded the National Institution of Health fellowship for graduate studies and research at the University of Rochester, N.Y. next year. Elberfeld will continue his studies at Rochester for a doctorate in bio-medical engineering.

[NI00002] First Day at School - by Mary Anne Brice
American Girl, September, 1968, page 17

Fifteen eager, little girls in fresh uniforms wriggle in their chairs and curiously watch the only new teacher in the elite private school. A slender girl with long, dark hair, she has been sit-ting in the class-room for an hour before school be-gins because she was so afraid she'd oversleep or miss her bus. 'What's more, I had once sworn never to teach first grade," Elizabeth Elberfeld recalls. "That's where the groundwork is laid, and I worried about what would happen if I muffed it. Suppose a child couldn't read because I hadn't taught her well?"
"I assumed the mothers would bring the children to school the first day, but nearly every girl had been there since nursery school. They knew all the rules and regulations, which I didn't! They tried to help me by saying, 'We have our snack now,' or 'It's time to go to the bathroom.' On top of that, the first and second grades shared a huge room, divided by a bookcase, so they could see and hear one another. My girls would say, 'The second grade is coloring now, can we?' or 'The second graders are putting on their sweaters for recess.' It went like that the whole day.
"Somehow, I managed to get through the morning's activities, hut after lunch came another shock. I was told that in the afternoon I was responsible for the second grade, too. I discovered the two groups could do a lot together and that the older girls could help the younger ones practice reading."
Since Elizabeth's major at Lesley College, a four-year teachers' school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, had been elementary and special education, she had learned to deal with young children. "But even practice teaching in a private school didn't quite prepare me for the real thing. You read about organizing a classroom at college, but actually figuring out how to set up reading groups, finding out who the class leaders are and how the children work together best take a long time. That's true, too, for evaluating what a class is learning."
Planning lessons at a private school is harder, Elizabeth feels. "In public school, you make a reading plan aimed at the middle of the class. But in a private class, each child reads at her own level, so all are in different places in different books. I make three basic reading plans a day for first grade, plus an additional one for each slower' child.
"As a rule, we don't have discipline problems," reports Elizabeth. "My problem in the beginning was getting used to the amount of freedom I had. I felt insecure and didn't know if I was doing what I should. In a public school, you are told exactly what work you are expected to finish during a term. Here, there are no strict guidelines and no-one checks up on me. I found records of what had been done in the past, so I could judge for myself how my classes were going.
"The children were all losing their teeth," she smiles, remembering, "and that made reading difficult for them. I never dreamed how much first graders could accomplish. Now, I like the freedom
-it gives me a chance to try out new ideas and techniques and to grow as a teacher."

Remarks of the Rev. Wm. B. Rice Given at the Memorial Service for Isobel Elberfeld
January 15, 1963
There are lives which give the lie to the prevalent notion that our human lot condemns us to live in solitary existences of no real consequence to the world about us. We can be certain that no such notion ever crowded the clear view of Isobel Elberfeld.
She lived constantly for those about her, her husband, her children, her children's friends, the churches in and for which she happened to be from time to time, and the community which she felt was part of her being. She lived as if her life had meaning, and it did.
That her husband's ministry had real meaning to those of us who were his parishioners and loved him deeply was due, in not small part, to her vision, her wisdom, and her loving concern. If there was ever a couple fitted to be a complementary pair of servants of religion, they were the Elberfelds.
I remember the great privilege it was to be a friend of her sons and, therefore, most truly, a member of her family. There always seemed to be a meal, a bed, and loving kindness for anyone the boys brought home. She was interested as we in all that we were doing in school, or church, or basketball, and she and Sam worked with us to turn gangs into sports teams. She taught us, by her example, that a life of service had both meaning and effect.
Her cultural and social concerns were broad and deep. Music gave her great delight. She believed that you and I, ordinary mortals, could work for good government and a creative world order.
With such an eager and exploring mind, old age was for her no decline in interest or a process of shutting off pieces of life. At the very last she wanted to know how her grandson's team came out in a game.
It is heartening to know, by happy example, that life is worth living for the creative opportunities each day may hold in store. The very best preaching is done by those who believe, believe in life so truly that they live every moment well and beautifully.

Worcester Evening Gazette 11/13/72
Retired Couple Finds Plenty of Adventure
By BARBARA BALFOUR

The Evening Gazette

WESTBORO -. Mr. and Mrs. John Elberfeld of 26 Grove St., who both retired last spring, don't miss the old jobs at all. ''We're having a ball,'' Mrs. Elberfeld said yesterday. The couple sailed a new 22-foot fiberglass Venture from Boston along the Maine coast on a two-week trip this summer. Wednesday they returned from a 10-day trip to Morocco. Friday they left on a swing around New England colleges to recruit transfer students for the Central New England College of Technology. This is the new college which grants a four-year degree, and is an extension of Worcester Junior College.

Dean for 26 Years

The technology college is Elberfeld's baby. For 26 years as dean of Worcester Junior College he felt the need of an additional, degree-granting institution for technical and engineering students. Although he retired in June, he is still a consultant and on the board of Trustees.
Mrs. Elberfeld for 15 years was librarian at Westboro High School. 'Though I enjoyed the school tremendously, I was glad to retire," she says. 'Fifteen years of getting up at 6:30 am. is enough. Where John and I had always worked in educational institutions, we were used to 1ong summers, so there wasn't the feeling some wives of retired men have of what to do with a man around the house all day, that I-married-not-for-lunch bit." One of the nicest things about retirement, the Elberfelds think, is that you can do things on impulse. Trips don't have to be fitted into schedules and planned a long time.

Impulse Trip
The Moroccan outing came about because of a brochure Elberfeld received about a charter plane trip sponsored by the Massachusetts Society for Professional Engineers. It seemed off-season and inexpensive, so in a matter of days, they were up and running. The Elberfelds are fascinated with Morocco. They saw big cities such as Tangier and Casablanca that don't seem much different from big cities anywhere. And they got inland to small villages and a town like Marakeesh.
"I felt as if I were walking around in the Bible in Marakeesh," Mrs. Elberfeld said. "Women holding babies ride on donkeys with their husbands walking beside, just like Mary and Joseph. Camels pull plows, women wash at the river's edge. In the market place at Marakeesh, the country people come in for miles around t\htmtch acrobats, trained birds, and snake charmers. They even cluster around story tellers, which touched me."
A high point of the trip was a get-together with Doug Teschner of Westboro, now serving with the Peace Corps in Rabat. He took the Elberfelds to a French restaurant and helped them buy a rug.
Bargaining is an exhausting performance in Morocco, Mrs. Elberfeld said. But she said she got cannier with each purchase. In almost no time, a string of Sahara amber that was $10 came down to $2.

Article written for the Willows Retirement Community Newspaper around 1989 in Westboro, MA
Catherine Kyes Elberfeld
"John, no more base ball today," warned Mrs. Elberfeld. "Catherine, the new baby next door, is out and you might hit a ball into her carriage." Ten year old John reluctantly shouldered his bat and sought a distant place in Peterborough, N. H. to practice. He probably thought all babies were a nuisance, especially the one next door. Catherine grew into a healthy three year old, and John became an even better ball player when Rev. Elberfeld, a Unitarian minister, and his wife moved to another parish. Catherine's parents were good friends of the Elberfelds and kept in touch with their old neighbors. Dr. Kyes was the dentist in Peterborough and counted the populace as his patients.
The Kyes lived in town, but had a cottage on Sunset Lake at the base of Crotched Mountain. They spent the summers there just a twenty minute drive from the doctor's office. Later, Catherine's children had happy times there, often treated at breakfast to hot homemade doughnuts by their Grandmother Kyes. Now it is a favorite place for Catherine's grandchildren. Only three weeks ago she opened the cottage so her Radcliffe granddaughter and friends could have a skating party on the frozen lake.
Catherine remembers her own happy time of growing up in Peterborough, the school's good teachers, the good behavior of the students and the fine academic standards. An added joy for her was dancing school. Her only complaint about life: too much parental supervision. But being an only child she had to put up with it. Imagine her delight when, at fifteen, she was allowed to go to a summer conference of young Unitarians on Star Island, off Portsmouth, ten miles out in the Atlantic. Her anxious mother had taken her to the boat. Relieved she was to see John Elberfeld among the crowd. "I'm glad there's some-one I know among this group," she greeted him. "Please take care of Catherine."
That evening when Catherine came down the hotel's great winding staircase to the lobby, John was waiting for her. The first dance was his. Because a man who had been to Harvard approved of her, other young men asked for dances too. It was a wonderful week for her.
Soon came college days at Radcliffe. She graduated with a major in English. Her career councilor suggested that she become a librarian. She had worked in the college library for fifty cents an hour and in the summer she had been an apprentice in a public library. She was ready to enroll in the famous one year course in library science at Simmons College to become a professional. Opportunity came for her to work in a new branch library in Rochester, N.Y.
In 1928 John Elberfeld graduated from Harvard with a major in Mechanical Engineering. He returned the next year to get a degree in Electrical Engineering. He had no trouble getting work with General Electric. The Great Depression was readying to shake up many careers. The lay-offs began, first at GE, at Western Electric, American Steel and Wire and on and on, until he became disillusioned with the industrial system. He thought his education might fit him for teaching. In Boston, he passed the necessary examinations and registered on the list of substitute teachers. John was living with his parents in East Boston. To see if there was a day's work for him on that list he had to be at the Board of Education by seven in the morning. One lucky break: a teacher was away for a year. John had that class. Finally through a teachers' agency he heard that Rochester Institute of Technology needed someone who could teach science and also coach the basketball team. John won the job which took him to Rochester, N.Y.
At a Home Dance at R. I. T. John saw Catherine and cut in on her indignant partner. John wanted to know all about her life. They renewed their interest in the Unitarian Young People's group, went to church together and to the many activities of the church and college. Catherine was always careful to bring another girl along so John could have a great choice of friends. He seemed to be looking for someone. At last he said, "Catherine, don't bring any more friends. It's you I want to be with."
And so they were married by John's father on July 8, 1939 in the biggest wedding Peterborough had ever seen. Dr. Kyes had lived there all his life. Lest they unwittingly forget a name, they printed the invitation in the newspaper, inviting everyone. A caterer in Fitchburg managed the refreshments. On their wedding trip John and Catherine drove to Montreal, to Quebec, east to New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, then home down the coast of Maine. Catherine could see how much John loved to travel.
In Rochester Catherine began her career as full time wife and mother. Ann Kyes was born in 1941, John Carl in 1945. The Elberfelds enjoyed Rochester. Catherine pushed her perambulator through the parks when the city's famous lilacs were in bloom. But when John became Dean of Engineering at Worcester Junior College he and Catherine were glad to return to New England. House hunting showed up the shockingly higher prices of the area. Someone suggested the charming little town of Westborough. "Splendid!" said Catherine's mother. "Be sure to look up Cousin Mary." "Mother," Catherine remonstrated, "this is a house hunting expedition, not a time for visiting." They couldn't locate the house whose address the agent had given them. They did stop to ask Cousin Mary Brigham where to find the house. "You wouldn't want that one. It's down by the railroad tracks. Let me call Gustaf Carlson at the bank. Bankers know everything that's going on." She returned, smiling. "Mr. Carlson says a woman came into the bank today saying she mast sell her house. Her husband is being transferred. Go look at it now." "The house at 46 Grove Street was perfect for us," said Catherine. "It was within walking distance of our needs and interests. John drove our car to work in Worcester. We moved in. I lived there over forty years until the day I moved to The Willows."
"Ann went to the private kindergarten run by the Woman's Club. It was in the Community House, now the headquarters of the Council on Aging. It didn't take me long to get acquainted with the parents of the other children. My life followed the pattern of many mid-twentieth century mothers. I was a Den Mother, a Girl Scout leader, member of the PTA, took my turn in the offices of the Women's Club and was active in the Unitarian Church. In 1958, during the building of the new high school way out on Fisher Street, Mr. Robinson, the school Superintendent, came to me. 'You have your degree in library science; you worked three years in a public library in Rochester. So you have your certification. Could you help me plan the new library? I'll set up a little office. You be thinking what you should do.' My John was a reasonable, considerate man. 'You worked in the children's department of a branch library and you had one course in school library work,' he pointed out 'you are within walking distance of the school. Why don't you give it a try?'
"I joined the Massachusetts School Library Association and found out what they were doing. I spent half a year collecting sample and gift books given to the teachers. I managed to have something on most subjects when we moved. I organized the students interested in library work into the Library Club. By June I really enjoyed the work. I enjoyed the teachers and the principal, Florence Wetherell's husband. I had to show every new class how to use the card catalogue and the reference books. I also had to show the teachers 'the books we had which would add interest and information to their classes. The Library Club met once a month for discussions, projects and parties. We had a Snow Sculpture Contest which was judged by citizens of artistic talent. Mr. Paige, the jeweler, gave us a plaque, and always engraved the name of the winning class on it. When the next school was built I planned the library. We also had a lovely office and workroom. When my husband retired, I retired too. I had worked for fifteen years.
"Ann had graduated from Radcliffe, John from Harvard. We were free to travel. We had had many trips in the fine little camper that John had built for us. Everything was as carefully organized as in the sleekest racing yacht. We taught the children to keep it so. Each of us had a particular task which made arranging camp easy. We had our first "international trip" when Ann was fourteen and John was ten years old. We drove to California with side trips to Mexico and Canada. Now John and I could have world wide trips with the travel clubs of Harvard and Radcliffe.
"John really settled into retirement by buying a 1924 model T station wagon to restore to its once dashing elegance. There was adventure, perseverance and luck in finding seasoned oak for the wooden body, the right curtain material and upholstery. He did all the work himself. We joined the Worcester Old Car Club, entered the car in shows, drove in parades and never missed the Fourth of July in Shrewsbury. John also had ideas about boats. As a young man he had sailed on the ocean. A constant visitor to boat shows, he found the perfect sailboat -a 22 foot Venture sloop, perfect for two people to sleep and to crew. We linked the initials of our two older granddaughters and called it the Heejah. Little Amy, following after, was the tender. We sailed in all kinds of weather, once making safe harbor just before a threatening hurricane. We always took a mooring at a Yacht Club and went ashore for dinner. We sailed out of Boston up and down the coasts of Massachusetts and Maine. John continued to serve on the Boards of various civic and educational organizations. He began the program of having citizens volunteer to help in the schools. This is the reason some Willows residents cross the street to the Hastings Elementary School to bring their skills to the teachers and children and, in turn, to receive pleasure and a few chuckles.
John was tutoring three handicapped children when it was time to leave on a long planned trip to Alaska. The third day of a Wild Life Bus Tour brought them sixty-five miles into the wilderness of Denali National Park, the home of moose, mountain goats and caribou. The clouds lifted to give John a chance to snap a picture of Mt. McKinley. The bus driver was a novice. He pulled off the side of the mud road into the soft berm to let a herd of caribou cross the road. Attempting to drive back onto the road brought swift tragedy: the bus rolled over and over down the slope. Mr. Elberfeld lay on the tundra for two and a half hours, Catherine beside him, until he was rescued by helicopter. His back had been broken in three places. He lived for two and a half weeks before an aneurysm ended his suffering.
Life seemed shattered too for Catherine. Her children, grandchildren and the people of Westborough have been a support and comfort. Now she carries on her former activities: the Unitarian Church, the Women's Club, a bridge group, Harvard/Radcliffe organizations and her own Radcliffe Class. She is happy to see granddaughter Julie playing her violin in Harvard's Mozart Society Orchestra. Catherine's move to The Willows has been rewarding for everyone. As President of the Residents' Association she has, with kindness and diplomacy, made us a reasonably happy society. After two years in office she'd ready for that "ease and relaxation" promised us.

A dentist who wouldn't send bills, and a daughter who tried
Paul Cummings, Senior Publisher Peterborough Transcript, October 18, 1990

The waterfront colony at Sunset Lake Greenfield lost one of its most senior residents recently with the death of Catherine Elberfeld. It could be that Catherine held the record for most vacation time spent there. The Elberfeld cottage (actually more than one, sort of a compound) dates to the early part of this century and her parents, Karl and Violet Kyes. Dr. Kyes had a dental office in Peterborough (Granite Block, second floor) for more than 60 years, and I've always understood he built his camp out of wood pallets and paper skids from the Transcript. The Kyes family lived on Concord Street, next to the Town Library. Their house, on the north side, borders the ugly New England telephone building. Its present owner is lawyer Catharine Sage, who lives across the street. Dr. Kyes began his practice here in1899, the year he was graduated from Harvard Dental School. He could have been, at one time, the only dentist in town (I've lost count of how many there are today).
The last time I saw Catherine was a little over a year ago. This was when she was entertaining a classmate from her high school days, Warren "Tyke" Lounsbury, and his daughter, from Olympia, Wash. Tyke hadn't been east in decades, and it was a joy to hear first-hand about his career at the University of Washington where he was a professor of stage design and related subjects.
Tyke Lounsbury grew up here (his parents were Lincoln and Mae Lounsbury, of Nubanusit Lane), and he got his start in the theatre as an apprentice at Peterborough Players. Tyke is the author of textbooks on back-stage management, though to be with him you would never know that he is an authority on this topic. The meeting with Tyke was at Sunset Lake, and there for that happy event were several from PHS '31. The surroundings, many of us noted, were far different from what Dr. Kyes had created the early part of this century and named "Just-A-Camp."
John Elberfeld, Catherine's husband, I learned, like his father-in-law, enjoyed carpentry and was responsible (as were their son, John, and daughter, Ann) for the many new buildings on the Kyes site.
John Sr. was an educator and died in 1981 as a result of a bus accident near Mt. McKinley in Alaska. John also had Peterborough connections, his father having been minister of the Unitarian Church.
I can't conclude this piece without mention of the summer, or summers, when Catherine worked in her father's office. It seems that Dr. Kyes had no assistants, was casual about scheduling appointments, and never billed his patients. Walks-ins with a toothache, or what-ever, always received attention, and you either paid Dr. Kyes on the spot, or not at all.
Catherine thought her father's policy was not only unbusiness-like, but furthermore, he could use the money. So she volunteered to help out as receptionist and bookkeeper. My memory is that Dr. Kyes tolerated, but was not enthusiastic, for such assistance, and he was pleased when Catherine was off to Radcliffe.
Maybe this explains, partially anyway, why Peterborough was so proud in 1960 when Dr. Kyes was chosen as the town's "Citizen of the Year." Yes, I was a patient of Dr. Kyes. And Catherine was a teenage girlfriend of mine. Tyke's too. Happy memories.

Rochester Skiing Enthusiast Becomes Instructor in Army

Corp. George Elberfeld, 21, formerly a student in the Electrical Department at Mechanics Institute, has carried his peace­time hobby into the war—with happy results. Corporal Elberfeld in his pre-Army days was an expert skier. He spent many a day on ski trips with his brother, John Elberfeld, also a skiing enthusiast and member of the Institute faculty, on New England and Rochester area ski trails.
Came the war and Corporal Elberfeld enlisted Oct. 6, 1942, managed to get himself assigned to the troops—which wasn't difficult considering his experience. Visiting his brother here on furlough at present, he'll return soon to the 110th Signal Company, 87th Mountain Division, which is in training at Camp Hale, Colo., where he is instructing recruits in the ski troops.
Stationed in Colorado most of the time since his enlistment, he has made many a long ski hike with full equipment, including a 75-pound pack. The ski troops, Corporal Elberfeld said, wear heavy clothing topped by white parkas as part of their camouflage. The troops travel in pairs, Elberfeld explained, with rations sufficient for about four days. Between them they have sleeping bags, a small stove, tent and other equipment necessary for living for days away from camp on maneuvers.


Sgt. George Elberfeld has been transferred from Camp Hale, in Colorado to Camp Swift in Texas. Mrs. Elberfeld, who has been living near Camp Hale for some time, has returned to the east, and at present is the guest of Sgt. Elberfeld’s parents, Rev. and Mrs. Samuel L. Elberfeld.

George Elberfeld, stationed in Colorado spent a four-day furlough at the home of his parents, Rev. and Mrs S. Elberfeld. A reception was given him at the Inn on Friday evening. He was presented a sum of money, contributed by his Warwick friends. About 50 attended the gathering -and a pleasant evening was spent, refreshments being served, and dancing enjoyed by the young people. Cpl. Elberfeld enlisted some time ago.

Rochesterian Gets Sergeant Rank
George Ross Elberfeld has been promoted to sergeant at Camp Hale, Colo. where he is an Instructor in radio theory, according to word received by his brother, John Elberfeld, Instructor in the Mechanical and Construction Department at Mechanics Institute.
Elberfeld was a third year student in the electrical Department at the Institute when he entered the Army a year ago. He was assigned to ski troops at his request since he is an expert skier. For a time he was a ski instructor at Camp Hale.

Extracts From An Unusual Sermon
By Rev. S. L. Elberfeld Unitarian Church 1912
(his farewell sermon)

It is needless to say that the Charlestown of the past and the Charlestown of today are different, and in the minds of some, vastly different. Formerly it was all residential and agriculture -- today, it is part residential and part manufacture -- and even the character of the farms and farming has changed. We have changed; but can you say that the change has been toward progression?...
We are not as cultured as we formerly were, but there are greater activities. As the old residents of the town die off their wealth dissipates to outside recipients and the Town must seek new ways of revenue and people, and the easiest way is to bring in manufacturing concerns. These factories bring people who help to populate the town and in-crease business. In the glow of an incoming factory I was even told by an enthusiast that it would add to our church number; but not a single addition has come to us through business boom. The gain has been elsewhere...
But no matter who loses or gains, the change has come about and must be accepted as a fact and we must adapt even our churches to the changed conditions...
If all the disreputable things were true about people in your midst that have come to me by hearsay in the four years that I have been with you, this community would undoubtedly be the worst morally on the fact of the globe...
You might criticize my being so far away from you on Sky Farm, but It is the best thing that could ever have happened to you who have listened to me so many Sundays, I was nearer heaven there wan the maelstrom of gossip would ever permit me to get here. When some of the things that were mauled over hare in the privacy of secret confab and repeated to other secret gatherings did finally reach me, I thanked God from the bottom of my heart that I did not have to live In the center of that evil talk, living apart from it all. I retained my ideals and my respect for the most of you and I preached those Ideals of man, of religion, of God...
The keenly alive, uneducated or unscholarized human brain is just as valuable in the solution of town problems as the scholarized brain. It is the man as well as the brain that we are after; and let us not forget the heart which is often of more value when dealing with children. Cut out the heart and sympathy is done away with; and sympathy for and with the child is more than your knowledge of the details of running a school.
Think of a parent bringing up a child by the brain process and no heart, no sympathy, with the child in that which interests it. !!...
What is needed, then, is that the supervision of our schools be placed directly in the hands of those who have children of their own. For instance, take a case directly in hand. - A driver of one of those long rides in the transportation of children from a distant farmhouse to a far distant school center thought it within his province to keep the children from talking, laughing, and singing on the way of the long drive. Arguments arose between the driver and the children whereupon the driver pushed his fist in the face of a child. - Or as the child said. "Hit me in the face with his fist." This, without investigation was termed by some in authority over the schools as discipline. Heart, sympathy, for the child! There was none. The father of the child took the matter In his own hands, interviewed the driver In a special manner and the children were allowed to talk, laugh and sing. They became respectful to the driver, and there was no more punching or depriving the children of their dinner pails and school dinner...
Permit me to say something on the transportation of pupils to the school centers. This is of importance to the town, for had you proper transportation those deserted farms In the outlying districts would have occupants. To know the Importance of transportation you must realize how it affects real estate. Try to sell an outlying farm and the first question that is asked is how far to the school; what accommodations have you for carrying the children? Answer truth-fully and the prospective buyer with children immediately gives up the idea of buying your farm.
I know of good farms going to ruin and helped to ruination by poor transportation and the centralization of education into school centers. Give me, not the old, but the New District school. Hardly a magazine but has something in it on this question and in favor of the New District School.
The town ought to own its own vehicles, covered in summer and covered and closed in winter. Let me describe to you how our children and some of the others were carried to school last winter...
The movement of a moving picture machine would have had to have been quickened many thousand times to have detected movement In the horse and sleigh that carried them through the biting cold and drenching rains of those long winter drives to the North Charlestown School. No cover overhead, not enough covering for the knees for I furnished one robe; and they were always damp. A little one-horse sleigh with three children sitting with backs to the horse and curved dash of an improvised seat made of a seven -inch width board; one child seated with the driver who kept one foot out of the sleigh to allow the child to remain in. This lightning express left home at 7:30 a.m. and arrived at school about 9 a.m. with the children sometimes wet to the skin to sit out the day...
Ten weeks of travel morning and night through the bitter winter weather under those conditions enforced upon every man in this audience would cause a special town meeting to be called to consider purchasing vehicles for school transportation...
Many have asked why we don't stay on the farm and become constant residents of Charlestown and we answer that you carry your calves and cows to market in winter better protected than your children to school. Money could not hire us to submit the children to another winter's cruelty of transportation...
I am reminded here of a story told of a clash in the Senate between Senator Biley and Senator Borah of Idaho. One of Bomb's measures "is a law providing for a bureau for children."...
"I assume," said the supercilious Biley, "that this bill, of the senator from Idaho is somewhat similar to that provision in the agricultural appropriation bill which makes some sort of a similar arrangement for calves and pigs!"
"Exactly," smiled Borah at the Texan. "My bill seeks to have the government do for the children what It has already done for the calves and pigs"
Whereupon Mr. Biley sat down heavily and became absorbed in Jeffersonian thought.
Let us agree with Senator Borah to give to our children at least equal public advantages that we give to our calves and pigs...
When a measure for the advantage of the children comes up you will always find those brought up in the rigid school of home economics crying, - "We can't afford It I" If we agree with them we must say then, that we can't afford to give the boy who will in a few year. become the man and the citizen and the girl who is to become the mother of a succeeding generation the best ad vantages educationally and morally.
That bugaboo Economy is the worst bug that ever worked itself into the human brain and heart! Economy! Shame! Let us be generous even to a fault when dealing with the matter of education and morals for the growing generation of boys and girls.
You needed town water and you got It; North Charlestown put up the same cry of Its needs, they got it; you cry for good roads over which to send the automobiles, you get them while the farmer bumps his bumpity way to town; but when the cry goes out from the majority of the townspeople for the best of home schooling, both grammar and high, for the young, both hands go up in horror. "We can't afford it!"
We need a high school here in town and four years of it; two to start with and the other two to follow later. B; sending the boys and girls away to other towns to receive their education you are weaning them away from the town, for all their interests are fixed outside of the home town - educational and social. The town spirit of the boys and girls is at very low ebb; the school hasn't even a school yell. Who's to give it to them and drill them in it? The girl school teachers and the janitor?
You need a man educator to start the first two years of high school and this man educator can allow you to dispense with an outside superintendent whose principal business is taking care of another town's schools. This man educator can just as well take over the supervision of your schools and they will receive a more thorough supervision than they are now getting.
Many of you here believe in the liberal church but you contribute little or nothing to It, You'll spend seventy-five cents for a seat in the theatre besides the car fare and expect to buy a reserved seat in heaven for twenty-five cents. You, boy, will spend ten cents for candy and drop one cent In the contribution box. The whole matter is that people pay for the pleasure they get out of a thing and not for the good they might do for themselves and others.
Common labor is paid from $550 to $600 a year and you cannot expect a minister who has spent years preparing for a pastorate of a church where all has gone out and nothing much in the way of earnings come in during that preparation to work for less than the price of common labor.
It is up to you, then, who expect to be married and buried by a liberal minister to help keep him in the community. You may not attend church once, twice, or a dozen times a year, but your money is good and the risk of taint will be run. Every one can afford to contribute weekly ten-cents, at least, five cents.

Hand-written comments by Catherine Elberfeld to her son, John K. Elberfeld. Daddy refers to the son of Samuel Elberfeld, John Elberfeld, who was the husband of Catherine and father of John K.
Do you remember hearing Daddy tell how his father always "fostered" the interests of his children? He practiced what he preached!! (So did Daddy!) This coincides with Daddy's stories of his first school days - grades 1-3 at North Charlestown. (Grampy Elberfeld got the Peterborough Church in 1913 in time to christen me! When the family moved back to Charlestown NH in 1917 for the War Years, the High School had been built and Daddy attended Freshman and ½ Sophomore Year there. There were 25 students in the High School, total!. There were 13 boys and they had a football team with daddy as Captain. The two programs offered were Agriculture and College. Daddy took the college courses plus all the manual training in the agriculture program. One of his teachers taught him 4 different subjects - but she was good. Daddy transferred to New Bedford, MA high school of 1600 in the middle of the year with no problems. (Added Note: I remember my father saying he stayed back a year in New Bedford.)

His pastorate in Church of Our Father in East Boston was from 1923-1939 and from 1946-1953 a total of 23 years.
His field of ministry was not only his church but his community. Playgrounds in Peterboro, New Hampshire and Warwick, Massachusetts, are monuments to his constructive and successful community interests.
His interest in youth was evidenced by continual gathering in of youth to Church functions, by his active service as scout master from 1909-1948 and by his constant camping trips to the mountains with the boys.
Local memorials to his successful efforts for the youth of the community are the procuring a City Yard from the City of Boston as a play area and the razing of Tappan School to provide play space for the children of our immediate vicinity.


He had an every ready ear to the call of need. His quick constant and .sympathetic understanding have lightened the burdens of many an East Boston family.

He loved the great out-of-doors and loved to work in the soil. He loved good music.
He was a man of modesty. His faith was best seen in hiss simple and honorable manner of life. By his fruits we learned to respect his faith.
His understanding was unusual in that he could enter into sympathetic understanding even with those who could not fully understand him, and he could be objective enough to tell a good joke on himself.
This sense of proportion, mixed with this unusual understanding made him greatly be-loved by those of Us around him.
His family was to him a great source of satisfaction and enjoyment, and his affection for them was doubly enhanced by his knowledge of their affection and regard for him. He was a genuine family man.
His own transparent honesty made him impatient with hypocrisy but he was not one to press his own ideas on others. His ideas of tolerance were carried into every day life.
He was endowed with the best foundation stone of Christianity a heart full of genuine love and friendship which reached for and wide.
'He has fought a good fight he has finished his course he has kept the faith. Henceforth is laid up for him a crown of glory which passes not away.
We shall all miss him.
May the eternal presence of Almighty God be with him and his beloved always.
He was a member of Everett C. Benton Lodge, A. P. & A.M. and Noddle Island's Lodge, A, F. & AM. of this district.

Elberfeld Retiring - Worcester Sunday Telegram, June 25,1972

WJC Dean Ending 26-Year Tenure
By JOHN M. McALLISTER of the Telegram Staff

After 26 years as a dean at Worcester Junior College, John Elberfeld is retiring.
He came in 1946 as dean of engineering when the school's day college opened, and his last big job was planning for, and then serving as first dean of, the newborn Central New England College of Technology, which just finished its first academic year.
In the beginning, 87 per cent of WJC students were Veterans, he recalls, "and we had the problem of establishing the college so students graduating from high school would be interested."

Up From Bottom
The school's "low point." came, he says, in 1951-52, when the Korean War took. back many of the veterans and many young I high school graduates were being drafted.
Then followed 17 or 18 years of continuous growth. Elberfeld rates the era between 1952 and 1960 as the period of greatest achievement, "when the college became established."
"Everybody in the college just worked like the dickens," he recalls. 'It was very much of a cooperative effort."
The college's specialty - which Elberfeld thinks it does better than any other school in New England - is to take the average, or even below average high school student, work with him and make a good student.
"Our reputation is not based on our entrance requirements," he said, "but on what our graduates do."

Hails Engineering Program
He is especially proud of the WJC's engineering pro gram, which, he says, pre-pares students for both immediate work and transfer to a four-year college, even if the student was graduated four or five years ago. The school is now in the process of changing its business and liberal arts programs so their graduates will also be prepared for both work and transfer, Elberfeld said.
He noted that student tastes have changed over the years, from engineering to business. and then to liberal arts, but he now sees a swing back to engineering at WJC.
He thinks the school's fo-ture lies in engineering.
The junior college has seen its enrollment decline in re-cent. years but Elberfeld thinks the school can succeed in the future, 'if certain things are done.'

Hopeful for Future
We've got to get out and let the college be known. We've got to get this information out to the public," he
said, as he slapped brochures for both schools which sat on his desk. Elberfeld has recently been busi- elected to the board of trustees for both schools, and he will also serve as a consultant to the schools.
He also intends to pursue some of his outside interests, such as sailing, skiing and traveling during retirement.
In October he and his wife plan to go to Morocco. This summer they expect to cruise along the Maine coast in their 22-foot sailboat.
Back in his high school days in New Bedford, Elberfeld earned All-Scholastic honors in football, basketball and baseball. The 69-year-old dean still admits to shooting a few baskets "every time I get my hands on a basketball."

Always Taught
The author of two books in engineering, Elberfeld proudly notes that he has taught every year he has been at WJC. He thinks this experience made him a better dean.
The last few weeks have been, in his own words, "outstanding," for Dean Elberfeld. First there was the surprise party the faculty gave him, which was attended by about 150 people. "I didn't know I had that many-friends," he says.
And at the recent commencement exercises for the two schools, he received another surprise, as he was awarded the first honorary degree from Central New England College of Technology.
Sitting in his office, he recounts stories such as that of a recent student who came to Worcester Junior Co1lege with a poor record, struggled for a C average during her first semester, but then was able to graduate with honors and win admission to a select college, from which she has just been graduated.
"There are so many cases like this," he says. "That's the sort of thing that's made the whole business worth while."


Commencement, Central New England College of Technology, Worcester Junior College
June 10, 1972 Worcester Memorial Auditorium, Worcester Mass

John Elberfeld
On the occasion of its first graduation ceremony, Central NewEngland College of Technology takes great pleasure and pride in honoring you with its first honorary degree - Doctor of Humane Letters. No more appropriate person could receive this distinction, as you have by your efforts almost single-handedly brought this college into existence. That you, for at least one year, will be the only honorary degree holder from Central New England College is an especially intended honor.
You came to Worcester Junior College with eminent qualifications. A most loyal son of Harvard, where you earned degrees in both electrical and mechanical engineering, you served the General Electric Company, American Steel and Wire Company, Western Electric Company, and the Community Service of Boston. Your teaching experience included service to the Boston School System, the University of Rochester, and nine years at Rochester Institute of Technology.
In April 1946 came the call from Worcester Junior College, to which you replied, "The possibilities of the school seem very exciting and I am anxious to see what can be done." Mostly because of you, Worcester Junior College did indeed become an exciting educational institution, and, mostly because of you, great accomplishments took place.
As you rose from Chairman of the Engineering Department to Dean of the College, the College progressed with you. You developed the single two-year program which serves Both the occupational and transfer needs of students. Despite changes in student bodies, faculty, administrations, and trustees, you remained the unswerving strength of the College. You held it together through its most difficult trials; you led it to its outstanding successes. The entire Worcester Junior College Community is in your debt. In awarding you the degree - Doctor of Humane Letters - we are also offering you our thanks.

My Favorite Relative
By Heather Elberfeld, Grade 7, around 1982
An English class writing assignment

My favorite relative is my grandfather, Grampy. He's the grandfather on my father's side. Grampy was very easy-going and very sympathetic. When ever you hurt yourself or were upset he would always make a joke about it and try to make you feel better and always did. Grampy did many things in his life: he was a teacher and a dean of two colleges, and he spent a lot of time with his grandchildren. It seems to me that he always though of us before he thought of himself.
My grandfather accomplished many things in his life. He went to Harvard and got a degree in engineering. He became dean of two colleges, Worcester Junior and Central New England College of Technology. He even wrote two college textbooks on engineering. Grampy grew up in New Hampshire, but came out to Rochester for about four years. While he was here he taught at RIT and U of R but most of all he was reunited with my grandmother.
Grampy cared about everyone and would never hurt anyone. Even though he was very tall and had very big hands he was very, very gentle. Grampy was always cheerful and never nagged me about anything. If these was something he wanted me to do, he would help me do it instead of just telling me to. Unfortunately Grampy had a hearing problem and had to wear a hearing aid. But what was worse was that he had very eyes and his license was taken away, but fortunately he was still allowed to drive his "Pride and Joy", the Model "T" car he had built by hand.
My grandfather was always busy, there were so many things he liked to do. His three favorite things were sailing, travelling and making things. Grampy was very a very good sailor. He could make the sail boat do whatever he wanted it to. He and my grandmother owned two sail boats, a small one which didn't have a name, and a big one which was named after my cousin and me. What they did to get the name was to mush our initials together and make a word out of them, thus it became the HeeJah. My initials being HEE and my cousins JAH. But my aunt had another baby, so they named the dinghy after her, the Amy. One of his other favorite thins was traveling. He had been almost everywhere! He had even gone to Alaska. But I think his favorite thing was making things. Being an Engineer he was very good at it. Grampy made many things for my cousins and me. He made us a bicycle. He made us each a dollhouse. He even built us our own cabin up at Sunset Lake. In fact, he built three cabins, a boathouse, and a sauna up at the lake. But I think he likes to make things the most when he can make them with his grandchildren.
I really loved my grandfather, and I was really upset when I found out he had died. But at least he died doing one of his favorite things - travelling. He was on a tour in Fairbanks, Alaska, and was in a bus accident. It's a shame that he is gone, but I have something to remember him by. Before he died he made a tape recording of things that happened to him during his childhood. I guess I am pretty lucky I can listen to Grampy whenever I want to. I guess that just goes to show how much he loved his grandchildren and how much he really cared.


Westboro Gets Benefit Of 50 Helping Hands
September 16, 1979
By GARY V. MURRAY

Telegram Westboro Bureau

WESTBORO - One of the advantages of working as a volunteer, jokes Ronnie Newman, is "you can take a vacation any time you want."
While that may be true, Mrs. Newman is convinced that the school department's volunteer program, which she coordinates, carries far greater rewards. "It's as rewarding for the volunteers as it is for the teachers and students," she said.
Retired Dean
Another volunteer is John Elberfeld of Grove Street, retired Worcester Junior College dean. For the last two years, Elberfeld has been teaching advanced mathemat-ics to a young student, now nine-years-old, with an unusual aptitude for the subject.
"By the end of last year, I got practically through freshman Algebra with him," Elberfeld said. "It's been very interesting working with him. The kid is so interested in the stuff and so eager to learn."
The retired educator was one of the people responsible for setting up the volunteer program. "It has really been a lot of fun and I think it's been a great help to the school system," he said.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Edward E. Kelleher agrees. "It really expands your program and it has been extremely effective," Kelleher said. "We have a tremendous pool of very talented people out there and they come in and give us a very valuable service. We would like to get more of them."

FUDGE - DADDY'S RECIPE
Use a heavy aluminum pan with straight sides so you can clip on a Candy Thermometer. (It will read 230 degrees F when fudge is done - soft ball stage)
1 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon cocoa
Mix together in saucepan then add:
1 cup milk
Cook over low heat so that mixture is just bubbling. Watch to see that it does not boil over. Do NOT stir! Test often (for fun!)
When done, remove from stove. Add
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon butter
Beat with spoon until it starts to thicken. Don't let it get sugary. Should have a shiny surface.
Pour into a well greased pie plate. "Score" it in pieces while still warm. Cool thoroughly before breaking into pieces and eating.
(From Catherine Elberfeld to John K. Elberfeld - Fudge is more like chocolate sugar than normal fudge, but it is what we grew up on.)

Tour bus with 32 aboard rolls down embankment
By DEBBIE CARTER
Staff Writer
Two federal agencies are jointly investigating the bus wreck in Denali National Park Monday night which killed three persons and seriously wounded three others.
There were 32 persons on the $25 wildlife tour through the park, in-cluding two drivers, when the bus left the gravel park road near the Eielson Visitors Center, tumbling 2½ times down an embankment, a National Park Service spokesman said.
The dead were identified as Margaret Chappell of Little Rock, Ark., and Judith Guevara and Maria Elena Garfros de Silva, both of Mexico City, according to Park Service spokeswoman Joan Gidlund.
Listed in serious condition were TuMartin Cruz and Margaret Padilla, both of Mexico City. John Elberfeld of Westboro, Mass., was reported in satisfactory condition, after being on the serious list earlier.
Guevara and de Silva died at the scene and Chappell died at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.
After a 31/2-hour wait in the park following the accident at around 7:30 to 8 p.m., 29 people were airlifted by Fort Wainwright Army helicopters to the Fairbanks hospital. Seven were treated and released. Injuries ranged from broken bones to bruises, Gidlund said.
A National Park Service employee was interviewing survivors of the crash this morning at the hospital in conjunction with the National Tran-sportation Safety Board to piece together what might have happened, Gidlund said this morning.
She said an NTSB team was due to arrive at the park, formerly known as Mount McKinley National Park, late today.
Officials for the bus company, Mount McKinley Tour Company, would not talk with the Daily News-Miner this morning. The park concession is owned by Outdoor World Ltd., a California company.
Although details of the accident are not known, the bus apparently rolled over a 100-foot embankment about one mile south of the Eielson Visitors Center and came to rest on its side, Park Service spokesman Robert Belous said.
He said it was clear from the indentations the bus left in the embankment that it overturned 2½ times.
"You could piece that together," he said.
The visitor's center is about 70 miles southwest into the park from the park headquarters.
Belous said a visitor in the area saw the accident and went to the visitor's center where a ranger radioed for help "He immediately got on the radio."
The road grade was not steep in the area where the bus left the road, and although the road was curvy, it was relatively straight in the area of the accident.
Gidlund said two doctors who had been hiking in the park were waiting nearby for the park-operated shuttle bus when the accident happened and they were able to administer immediate aid to the injured.
Four park rangers with medical training also gave emergency first aid to the injured within minutes of the accident, Belous said. Other rangers continued arriving to give first aid to those waiting for helicopters.
After a three-hour wait, helicopter from Fort Wainwright began airlifting the passengers to Fairbanks. The last helicopter load left the park around 12:30 to 12:45 a.m. today, Belous said.
The bus carried 22 passengers from Westours Inc., who were to spend the night in the park, said Jack Musiel chairman for Westours in Seattle.
The Anchorage Daily News said the site was the same place where a woman was killed in 1974 in the park's only other fatal bus accident. Gidlund said she wasn't sure of the location, but confirmed the earlier accident, The Associated Press reported.
The newspaper quoted an unnamed former shuttle bus driver as saying the place where the accident occurred at "probably the worst section of the whole road.
"The shoulders are incredibly soft there. It's a pretty good drop off on the south side," said the man, whom the paper said drove the road for five years.
"That part is pretty worn out, gets bumpy and is pretty narrow," he said "There are some places where it's just wide enough for a bus to get through."
Park officials have complained repeatedly in recent years that the have been provided inadequate funding to maintain the park's roads, bridges and facilities.




Peterborough Transcript July 8, 1981
John Elberfeld dies from Alaska accident
John Elberfeld of Westborough, Mass., retired dean of Worcester Junior College, and Central New England College of Technology, died Thursday in Fairbanks, Alaska, of injuries received in a bus accident there on June 15.
Mr. Elberfeld lived in Peterborough as a child, when his father was minister of the Unitarian church. His wife is the former Catherine Kyes of this town. He was 78.
Mr. Elberfeld and his family have had a cottage at Sunset Lake in Greenfield for many years.
Mrs. Elberfeld was also injured in the accident which took her husband's life. They were on a three week wildlife tour of Alaska, and were with a group of 30 persons bound for Mt. McKinley National Park. Three of the group were killed instantly.
The bus rolled over twice as the driver lost control on a soft shoulder, and tumbled 100 ft. down an embankment inside the Alaskan Park, which is crowned by 20,320-ft. McKinley, America's highest peak.
Army helicopters from Fort Wainright, near Fairbanks, ferried the injured and survivors some 150 miles northeast to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, where Mr. Elberfeld died.
Mt. McKinley National Park recently was renamed Denali National Park. Outdoor World Ltd. was the sponsor of the tour. The accident occurred about 65 miles inside the park, at 8:30 p.m. on the fourth day of the wildlife trip.
Mr. Elberfeld was thrown out of the bus and received a broken back, among other injuries. His death came as a result of cardiac arrest while in surgery. Mrs. Elberfeld returned from Alaska on Friday.
Mr. Elberfeld was born April 27, 1903. He was a graduate of Harvard. His career was in education. He was a trustee of Worcester Junior College, and Central New England of which he was a founder. He received an honorary doctorate degree from the latter institution in 1972.
He was the author of two textbooks on metallurgical engineering, and had received his bachelor's and master's degrees in electrical engineering from Harvard University School of Engineering in 1926 and 1929 respectively.
Mr. Elberfeld was an instructor at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, N.Y. 1937 to 1945, and at the University of Rochester 1942 to 1944.
He was a registered professional engineer in Massachusetts and a life member of the American Society of Electrical Engineers, and the Massachusetts School Masters Club.
He had been chairman of the Westborough School Committee and was a member of the West-borough School Advisory Committee.
He was a member of the Harvard Club of Worcester, Harvard Club of Boston, Harvard Varsity Club, Harvard Society of Engineers and Scientists, Winthrop Yacht Club, Worcester Old Car Club, and he was a past president of the Westborough Kiwanis Club.
In addition to his wife, Mr. Elberfeld leaves a son, John K. Elberfeld of Rochester, NY.; a daughter, Anne Huberman. Buffalo, NY; three grandchildren; two brothers, George of Winchester, NH and Richard of Westborough.
A memorial service will be held Sunday at the Westborough Unitarian-Universalist Church, at 3 p.m., with the Rev. Mack Mitchell officiating. In lieu of flowers donations in Mr. Elberfeld's memory can be made to the Memorial Library Fund, Central New England College, 768 Main St., Worcester, Mass.

You Could Look It Up: The Life of Casey Stengel
Maury Allen, 1979 Times Books

Through it all Stengel prospered. His play improved, his mistakes grew less frequent. He was gaining confidence in his play, confidence in his person, certain he could make the big leagues if he was given the chance. Like most ambitious youngsters in and out of baseball, he became a brain-picker. He would seek out veteran players, ask them about conditions in the big leagues, seek helpful advice, store it and record it in that incredible brain of his, always able to bring the information forth when necessary to help him maximize his physical talents.
Stengel had become friendly with a thirty-six-year-old infielder named Norman Arthur (The Tabasco Kid) Elberfeld. Kid Elberfeld had played in the majors from 1898 to 1911. In 1912 he had been released by the Washington Senators and signed as a free agent with Montgomery. He would return to the majors again in 1914 for a short while as a teammate on the Dodgers of Casey Stengel. Elberfeld was a generous man with his time and his wisdom. Like Stengel, he enjoyed talking baseball for hours at a time.
The grizzled old veteran and the blond-haired youngster, recently turned twenty-two, sat together on trains, roomed together in hotels, dined together in restaurants, shared thoughts on the bench and in the hotel lobbies. Elberfeld, using a short bottle-shaped bat, was a whiz at placing the ball between the fielders. He and Stengel often worked plays where Stengel would start to steal a base and Elberfeld would smack the ball through the vacated infield spot, second base, shortstop, or third base. They had become good friends and now, as almost always happens in baseball, one or the other would move on. This time it was Stengel moving up and the older man staying back. Elberfeld, who had enjoyed his stay in the big leagues, was not resentful as so many older players were in the bitterness of their baseball middle-age. On September 15,1912, after Stengel had been notified he was to report to Brooklyn for the final three weeks of the Dodger season, Elberfeld organized a small farewell party for the departing friend. He ordered that Stengel buy two jugs of wine for $6.00, buy a new suit ("You gotta dress like a big leaguer before they believe you are one," Elberfeld said) for $22.00, and a new suitcase for $17.50. The players partied until the wine emptied. Then, singing lustily, they walked with Stengel to the train station.
"Keep your ears open and your mouth shut up there," said Elberfeld.
It was wonderful advice for most players going to the big leagues. For Charles Dillon Stengel it just wouldn't work. His mouth was as much a part of his game as his bat, ball, and glove.

STENGEL: His Life and Times Robert W. Creamer
Moving On Up: The Tabasco Kid's Advice

The following autumn, Casey Stengel reported to the Montgomery team at its training camp in Pensacola, Florida. His manager was a former major-league outfielder named Johnny Dobbs, but Stengel paid more attention to an old shortstop named Norman Elberfeld, known in baseball as the Tabasco Kid, or, more commonly, just Kid. Elberfeld was even older than Dobbs; he had spent thirteen seasons in the majors and had managed the New York Highlanders (later to be called the Yankees) for part of a season. He was a smallish man, about five feet seven, peppery and pugnacious. There was a fierce rivalry between Montgomery, managed by Dobbs, and Atlanta, man-aged by a fellow named Dolan, and feud-minded Southerners referred to games between the clubs as battles between the McDobbs Clan and the McDolans. In Atlanta, the Montgomery players rode from their hotel to the ball park in an open horse-drawn stage. When Atlanta fans saw them passing they would jeer and hoot, and occasionally some would run close to the wagon as though to spit or let loose a particularly cutting epithet. Elberfeld would sit on the side step of the wagon holding a bat in his hands, and whenever people came too close he'd threaten to whack them with the bat.
Elberfeld took a liking to Stengel and told the twenty-one-year-old outfielder, "Listen, if you want to get to the big leagues, watch me." He taught Stengel the niceties of the hit-and-run, showed him how to bat a ball behind the runner and how to coordinate his efforts at bat with a base runner so that he could poke a ground ball through the spot vacated by an infielder moving over to cover the base the runner was heading for. Elberfeld showed Stengel how to stand close to the plate at bat so that he could get himself hit with a pitched ball when it was especially desirable to get to first base, and how to defray suspicion that you'd gotten yourself hit on purpose by throwing your bat angrily toward the mound and moving threateningly toward the pitcher, shouting and cursing.
Stengel was an apt student, but sometimes he didn't learn as well as Elberfeld wanted him to. The old shortstop liked to work a play when he was at bat and the swift-running Stengel was on second base. He'd have Stengel break toward third base on the pitch, which would prompt the shortstop to move toward second base and the third base-man toward third, each anticipating a throw and a possible rundown with the rash young base runner caught between bases. Elberfeld, who had great bat control, would poke a simple ground ball to the left side, and neither the third baseman nor the shortstop could get back into position in time to field it, which meant that Stengel would reach third easily and sometimes be able to keep going all the way to home plate. Now and then the play would backfire. Elberfeld wouldn't be able to hit a grounder and instead would hit a pop fly or a soft line drive. He had cautioned his pupil to be alert to such a possibility, but Stengel, vain about his base running, his eyes set on reaching third, would run blindly and be easily doubled off second. This happened a couple of times, to Elberfeld's considerable annoyance. When it happened a third time-Stengel running full tilt toward third while an infielder was settling under an Elberfeld pop-up-the Tabasco Kid raced down the third-base line, waving his bat and screaming. The startled young Stengel put on the brakes, wheeled, and sprinted back toward second base, too late to avoid being doubled off, but away from the cursing Elberfeld anyway.
When he was still in spring training with Montgomery, Stengel one day noticed a metal cover half hidden in the lush grass of the outfield. Always curious, he opened the cover and found that it concealed a shallow hole containing water pipes and valves and enough space to hide a crouching man. Glancing around and realizing no one was watching, he ducked into the hole and closed the lid, holding it open just wide enough so that he could keep an eye on what was going on elsewhere around the field. Someone hit a high lazy fly ball in his direction, and when everyone looked toward the outfield Stengel got his desired effect: No one could imagine where he had gone. Then he climbed out of his hiding place, holding the metal cover over his head. He planned to hold the cover like a shield and let the ball bounce off it before he caught it, but it was too heavy to maneuver easily and at the last moment he had to drop it and grab the ball one-handed.
A scout for the Washington Senators named Mike Kahoe heard about that and when he was asked his opinion of Stengel as a major-league prospect said, "Well, he handles the bat well, and he can run and field and throw. He's a dandy ballplayer, but it's all from the neck down." His reputation for eccentricity was growing. A lot of people enjoyed his fooling, but not everyone. "Being a clown wasn't safe in the minors," Stengel said. "Some of them bush-league managers could hit you with a bat at fifty feet."
But he batted .290 with Montgomery and led all outfielders in the league in assists. He had developed in three seasons from a raw, un-schooled greenhorn into a skilled, competent professional. Brooklyn was well aware of his progress, and in August, a month before the end of the Southern Association season, it announced that it would exercise its option and reclaim Stengel's contract. He was ordered to report to the Brooklyn club as soon as the Southern Association season ended in mid-September.
Montgomery's last game was on Sunday, September 15. Elberfeld took charge of Stengel's departure. He made him buy a new suit. Stengel protested, saying that he was saving his money for dental school. Elberfeld said, "You're going to the big leagues. You're not gonna be a dentist." He told Stengel he had to dress right if he were going to be a big-leaguer, and Stengel reluctantly bought a new suit. Then Elberfeld told him he had to get rid of the cardboard suitcase he'd been using and buy a decent leather one. Stengel protested again, but Elberfeld said, "If you get caught in a hard rain with that cardboard suitcase all that you'll have left will be the handle." Stengel thought the old suitcase would see him through the few weeks of the season still remaining. Elberfeld said no, and made Stengel buy a new bag.
Elberfeld also set up a farewell dinner for the departing hero and made Stengel buy the wine for it. Stengel, pinching his $150-a-month salary, disliked spending all that money, but Elberfeld's insistence that he do things right made him understand the meaning of "big league." Casey went first-class the rest of his life, and he insisted that his players understand the reasoning: "If you're a big-leaguer, act like a big--leaguer."
That also meant you should be treated as a big-leaguer. In 1953, Red Barber, long the broadcaster of Brooklyn Dodger games, refused to do the telecast of the World Series between the Dodgers and the Yankees that year unless the sponsor would let him negotiate for better payment than the $200 a game he had been paid a year earlier. The sponsor told him he could take it or leave it. When Walter O'Malley, the Dodger owner, failed to support Barber in the dispute, Barber left both the World Series broadcast and the Dodgers. He moved to the Yankees the next season, but during that 1953 Series he was without a job. After the Yankees won the final game of the Series, Barber made his way through the crowd in the dressing room to congratulate Stengel. Casey was surrounded by reporters in the usual mob scene when Barber put out his hand and said, "Congratulations, Casey." Stengel raised his eye-brows, grabbed Barber's hand and said, "Let me congratulate you! I want to tell you, a major-league job is worth major-league money!"
The Tabasco Kid sent his protege to the big leagues in style, a style he'd never forget.

Unforgettable Casey Stengel: Billy Martin with Mark Kram, Reader's Digest

If any manager can ever be called a genius, Casey Stengel is that man. Unless it was convenient, his memory was faultless-as clear and specific as the ring of a bell on a still day. It was the gift, the switch that he pulled to maneuver his players on and off the field, and it made him a master in the subtle game of using a certain batter against a certain pitcher, of putting a strong arm in the right position. This is called "platooning," and the old man was the father of it; baseball would never be the same again.
The Man From K.C. Casey Stengel was born in Kansas City, Mo., in 1890. From the day his father signed his consent for the boy to play pro-fessional ball, young Stengel would be known as the man from K.C., hence the name "'Casey." At 19, he was playing for Maysville, Ky., where he used to practice slides in the outfield between innings.
"Keep tryin', son," said one of the veterans of the club, "and you'll soon be up there." "In the majors, you mean?" asked Stengel. "No, up there!" said the veteran, pointing to a mental hospital beyond centerfield.
Though Casey had wanted to be a dentist (he spent three years at Western Dental College in Kansas City), in the summer of 1912, while he was playing for the Montgomery team in the Southern Association, his head turned completely toward the big leagues. It all happened one
day when major-league shortstop Kid Elberfeld stopped by to watch Casey play.
The Kid's eyes pinned on Casey's valise. "That's a thousand-miler if the weather stays good," said the Kid. "But if it rains, you'll find your-self holding nothing but the handles. Buy yourself a good one. You'll need it if you're going to be a big-leaguer. And don't worry, you will be. You can forget about pulling teeth, you're made for this game."
That fall, new bag and all, Casey was called up to the Brooklyn Trolley Dodgers. He would remember Kid Elberfeld's encouragement and help him later, for he was never to forget a friend. He used to send money quietly to old players, down on their luck. "Is it true," I once asked him, "that you just sent $1000 to some old ballplayer in Tacoma?"
"Mind your own business, Martin" he shot back with a faint smile. on his face. "You might be sittin' in a rockin' chair someday on the porch of some nursing home. Come to think of it, you belong in one now.

PLAQUE FOR ELBERFELD - Special ceremonies for the late Norman (Kid) Elberfeld, one of the most colorful characters in the history of the Southern Association, were observed at Engel Stadium yesterday afternoon as the Lookouts faced the Little Rock Travelers in a twin-bill. Here Is a picture of the plaque which was unveiled yesterday and hung in the stadium lobby along with other memorials.

Don Overmeyer Jr; Unveils Plaque Of Kid Elberfeld for Stadium Wall

Don Overmeyer Jr., youthful grandson of the late Kid Elberfeld unveiled a memorial plaque for the Tobasco Kid at home plate at Engel Stadium between games yesterday afternoon.
The commemoration address was made by Will Shepherd, while friends of the family, the managers and players of both teams and the umpires stood with bared heads.
The Chattanooga publisher said in part: "We are here to unveil a plaque in memory of Norman Elberfeld, known to his friends and admirers as the Tobasco Kid.
"The nickname was appropriately applied, and was especially true where the boys in blue were concerned.
"In a long career in baseball the Kid asked no quarter, and did not expect any. He played the game the hard way, to win.
"I remember when he came to Chattanooga as a manager in 1913. That was 34 years ago, and not a single player on either team here today was even alive when the Kid was in his heyday as a player and manager.
'The memory of the Tobasco Kid will be permanently recorded with the hanging of this memorial plaque in the . halls of Engel Stadium, along with those of Strang Nicklin, Johnny Dobbs and Joe Cantillon." .
Mrs. Elberfeld, who was In the stands with other members of the family and friends during the ceremonies, requested that the money left over from the purchase of the plaque be put into a permanent fund; that the commissioner of amateur baseball here each year select the outstanding player of the year, and that a Kid Elberfeld glove be purchased from the fund and presented to the player selected.
The fund will be kept alive by members of the family.

IN MEMORY OF NORMAN (KID) ELBERFELD - Chattanooga Times, July 7 1947

This coming Sunday afternoon at Engel Stadium at a point maybe between the double-header scheduled with the Little Rock Travelers, there is an event scheduled, one that will pull upon the heartstrings of all the old-time baseball fans, those who have followed the destinies of the Chattanooga Club through all the years that Chattanooga has been a member of the Southern Association. During the afternoon a plaque commemorating the life and the baseball career of Norman A. (Kid) Elberfeld, one of baseball's immortals, who, during his colorful career, was a nationally known figure. He was known throughout the baseball world as "The Tobasco Kid" and if ever an individual lived up to his name it was Kid Elberfeld. On the diamond he was no sweet smelling geranium. He was the arch enemy of the "boys in blue," otherwise known as the umpires and was probably put out of more ball games than any other player in organized baseball. With that sort of a reputation, it is not meant to be conveyed here that he was a "rowdy," because he was not. He played the game to win, and never overlooked an opportunity to gain for his side an advantage over his opponents. Kid Elberfeld was a scrapper and there was where he got the name "Tobasco Kid." He was probably baseball's most colorful individual.

Season of 1913

It was, I think, as far back as 1913 when Kid Elberfeld came here as the manager of the Chattanooga Club. The Chattanooga ownership was then operating from hand to mouth and good baseball material was not obtainable, but the Kid made the best of what he had, and he proved himself to be one of the most popular managers who ever appeared on old Andrews Field, where now stands the imposing Engel Stadium. The year previous he was the manager of the Little Rock Club where he won a pennant.
In his years in Chattanooga and as a resident of Walden's Ridge, I came to know Kid Elberfeld and his family quite intimately. The Kid used to spend some time in my office where we discussed his colorful career more than a single time. Fred Graff, popular and well-liked citizen of today, came to Chattanooga in 1913 to join Elberfeld's team. He was the third base man on the club and was one of the best. During this week I was talking to my friend Fred about the team that was playing the season of 1913 under the direction of Kid Elberfeld. On that team he had three left-hand pitchers-Harry Coveleskie, Floyd Kroh, and a little pitcher named Rudy Somers. These three men alternating pitched practically every third game and no club in the Southern League ever had a better crew of starting pitchers than were these three southpaws, and they also were a colorful bunch of ball players,

Some time back a group of men who knew Kid Elberfeld, in connection with the present ownership of the club, decided to place a permanent memorial in memory of Elberfeld in Engel Stadium. This work has been crowned with success and the plaque is scheduled to be unveiled with proper ceremonies at Engel Stadium Sunday afternoon.

MAWNIN'! By Buss Walker (probably a Chattanooga paper, July 1947)

· The Tobasco Kid and a Pennant
· Bucking the Whole League
Announcement of the unveiling of the memorial plaque for Kid Elberfeld at Engel Stadium this afternoon has caused quite a bit of memory tickling around and about.
Everyone, it seems, has some pet tale of the antics or troubles of the Tobasco Kid during his many colorful years in the pastime, and you have only to mention his name to open the floodgates.
It was so with Edgar Allen, president of the Mobile Bears. We'd met Edgar down in his hotel the other day to ask him how it felt to be sitting on top of the world, a la Southern League His answer was brief and to the point: "It feels a lot better than being on the bottom."
Then, in the same breath, he wanted to know all the details of the business about the memorial for Elberfeld.
"The Kid was pretty close to our family out at Little Rock," Edgar. said later, "and my father (Col. Bob Allen) thought he was one of the greatest chaps ever to play baseball.
"I'll never forget the year (1920) he managed our club to our club to a pennant. That was one hectic season, and a battle all the way.
"The Kid won the flag with a five-man pitching staff-Rube Robinson, Mose Yellowhorse, Bubba Jonnard, Connie Fields and Lefty Matthews. You remember Rube. He beat Chattanooga for eight years before the Lookouts ever won a game from him, and in Atlanta, all he had to do was throw his glove on the field and the Crackers were licked.
"Then there was that Yellow-horse. He was a character. During the spring an old catcher friend of my father's phoned him from Pohuskie, Okla., that he'd found the greatest young pitching prospect of all time and wanted to send. him over to us for spring training. It turned out to be Yellowhorse, a full blooded Indian. He reported to dad, and was sent out on the field to join the club. Dad had forgotten to say anything to Elberfeld about it, and the first the Kid knew about Yellowhorse being there, he heard a ball pop-ping into a catcher's mitt so loudly that he stopped hitting to the infield and went over to see what was going on.
"He asked Yellowhorse where he came from and why. The Indian told him, then the Kid said for him not to be pitching so hard, to throw them easier for a while. Yellowhorse told him he wasn't throwing hard, that he was just warming up.
"We opened with Memphis that year, then hit the road for New Orleans. The first night down there Yellowhorse stayed out drunk all night, and showed up around noon next day with the worst hangover you've ever seen. It burned the Kid down, so -he told the Indian that just to punish him he was going to make him pitch that afternoon and go the full route if they murdered him.
"It was the Yellowhorse's first game in professional ball, and he shut out New Orleans with a four-hitter, hangover and all.
"We had another Indian at first base, Bill Wano. George Distell was at second, Rabbit McGuinness was at short, and t he old Vanderbilt Scrappy Moore was at third. In the Out-field were Frankie Zoeller, Bing Miller and Harry Harper, and our catchers were Tony Brottem and Frank Kohlbecker.
"The Kid battled Atlanta neck-and-neck all season, fighting every step of the way with the other clubs and the umpires. Memphis was so mad at him that late in the year they sold Dazzy Vance to New Orleans just before a series with us, to try and help the Pelicans knock us out of first place. We finally won the pennant, although the Kid was in hot. water all year and his fines totaled more than $500.
"I think it's a great thing you folks are doing here in honoring the memory of Elberfeld, and I'm sorry that our team won't be here to share- in the ceremony."

In Appreciation
We should like to- thank the many friends of the Kid, and of baseball, who so generously contributed toward the memorial plaque.
It started as a half-formed wish after the Kid's death several years ago. A. mention of the idea in the paper set the ball rolling, and Associated Press passed it along.
It wasn't a question of raising the money needed. Joe Engel would gladly have given the entire amount because of his long-standing friendship for Elberfeld. The Elks Club, where the Kid was a member, voluntarily offered to take care of it. But we had an idea there were a. lot of folks who had admired the scrappy little ball player and manager who would want to be represented in the placing of a memorial for him. It turned out we weren't far wrong.
Donations started piling in from all over the league, and as far away as St. Louis. People in automobiles stopped you on the street to pass along their share. They came to your table in restaurants for the same purpose, and every mail brought more checks. Dutch Hassig set up a downtown receiving station at the Hamilton Bank and accepted personal responsibility for the funds. And before the deluge of donations could be stopped, the amount received had passed far beyond the sum needed.
It was found then that metal for casting the plaque could not be obtained until after the war, and so the unveiling had of necessity to be postponed.

Elberfeld Trophy
It was decided by the committee to present the amount left over from actual cost of the plaque to Mrs. Elberfeld to use in any manner that she should see fit. And that little lady came through like the champion she is.
Mrs. Elberfeld has asked that the sum be put into a permanent Elberfeld rotating trophy, to be given each year to the standout amateur baseball team in Chattanooga, to help create continued interest in the work to which the Kid devoted his life-that of developing young ball players.
Sentiment of the right kind is a rather beautiful thing. And it is the sentiment in baseball that has given us our national Hall of Fame, also the little Hall of Fame at Engel Stadium that will be enriched by the memorial plaque of Elberfeld, and that has kept the pastime on the high level that has made the game our chief national sport.
The Tobasco Kid was an institution.
May his memory never grow dim!


Part 1: His Rookie Experiences http://wso.williams.edu/~jkossuth/cobb/rookie.htm
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rookie Experiences
Ty arrived in Detroit on 29 August 1905 after a three-day train ride from Georgia. He made his debut the next day against New York Highlander (later called the Yankees) ace Jack Chesboro. Immediately Cobb drew attention to himself as a precocious rookie by swinging three bats in the on-deck circle. The reaction to him doing so indicates that he may have been one of the first players to swing multiple bats in the on-deck circle. He showed determination and character in his first major league at bat, driving a two-strike pitch from the 40 game winner into center field for a double.

The rest of his rookie season did not go as smoothly for Cobb, however. The very next day he slid head first into second base, only to have Kid Elberfeld, the Highlander second baseman, dig his knee into the back of Cobb's neck, grinding his face in the dirt. That was the last time Cobb slid headfirst into a base. Cobb had consistency problems with his glove, which plagued him for his first few months with the Tigers. On some days he was brilliant in the field, and on others it seemed like he was playing with a bag of popcorn in his hand. Overall, Cobb's first season in the majors, short as it was, showed enough promise for the Tigers to sign him to a lucrative $1500 contract for the 1906 season.

JUNE 1903
8th
Detroit SS Kid Elberfeld, suspended for umpire abuse, is traded to New York for veteran infielders Herman Long and Ernie Courtney. "The Tabasco Kid" will be a key ingredient in the Highlanders' rise as contenders in 1904.

SEPTEMBER 3, 1905
Kid Elberfeld ejected in first game of New York's 4-3 win vs. the A's. In the 2nd game, New York baserunner Willie Keeler collides with A's SS Lave Cross trying to field a ground ball. Two runs score but Umpire Silk O'Loughlin sees no interference, a call so hotly disputed by A's captain Harry Davis that after 8 minutes of arguing he pulls his team and forfeits the game to New York.

SEPTEMBER 12, 1936
Kid Elberfeld pinch-hits at age 61 for his Fulton (Kitty League) team and grounds out to 3B.

SEPTEMBER 5, 1969
Billy Williams has all 4 of Chicago's hits, as the Cubs lose a 9-2 decision to Steve Blass and the Pirates. Williams sets an NL record for most hits in a game with no other hits, tying the ML record of Norm Elberfeld (August 1, 1903).

Kid Elberfeld

"The Tabasco Kid" was known for his fierce, competitive
spirit, as well as his hot temper, but he was also a
fine fielder. On Septempber, 2 1901, he had 12 assists at
shortstop while playing with the Tigers in the fledgeling
American League. Elberfeld also had a patient eye at the
plate, walking five times in one game in 1902. This card
comes in two variations: NY and Washington. The Washington
variation in excellent condition is worth over $1000, more
than ten times the value of the NY version!

YANKEES

Clark Griffith, the club's manager since its inception in 1903, was replaced in midseason by Kid Elberfeld (27-71), who directed the Highlanders (51-103) to a last-place finish with the second-worst winning percentage (.331) in franchise history. Jack Chesboro (14-20, 2.93 ERA) pitched his last full season with the club.

[NI00744] Typed notes, probably from Edith Elberfeld
Most of the time after Norman and Grace married, they made their home in and around Chattanooga. For the last several years they had a home on Signal Mountain called "Still Acres." Here he died. Seventeen years later his wife followed him on Dec 25, 1961. Norm died Jan 13, 1944.
Grace Elberfeld was a very highly educated lady. It is said that when the team was traveling around she would follow him everywhere. Often this was hard on the children who needed to be in school. When such was the case Mrs. Elberfeld heard the children's lessons herself every night. Thus they were as well informed as other children of their age. She taught them so well that two of her girls are now teachers in the Chattanooga city schools.
Grace was also a great naturalist. The author saw her one time bringing home a rattlesnake for her collection. She had it right behind the head, pinching it with her thumb and forefinger so it could not bite. And the body of the reptile slung across Grace's shoulders just behind her neck. She was not afraid of anything. From her earliest years she was used to taking long walks, as is the English custom, with her father and brother Ed Catlow. On one trip they were walking the R.R. bridge over the Ohio River when a train caught them way out on the tressel. There was no place to get to keep from being knocked off into the river. Edward climbed down under the ties and clung to the supporting timbers. He had his father pass the little girl down to him and held her while his father climbed down to him and held her while his father climbed down to him and held her while his father climbed down also, the train thundering on over their heads. Such training as this made Grace a brave woman. She did not complain even a few hours before her death, just said, "I'm not feeling well." By morning, Christmas morning, she was gone.

Sporting News, Philadelphia, September 17 1904
NORMAN ELBERFELD,
Shortstop of the New York American League Club.
Norman Elberfeld, the hustling anti hard-hitting short-stop of the New York American League Club, has been playing professional ball only since 1895. He hails from Walden's Ridge, near Nashville Tenn., and is now only twenty-seven years old. He was boy in knickerbockers when he got his first professional engagement with the Clarksville, Tenn., club of which the noted ex-League catcher, Billy Earle, was manager. His work attracted the attention of Manager George Stallings, of the Augusta Club, of the Southern League, and he was signed and developed by that astute handler of young p layers. When Mr. Stallings became manager of the Philadelphia Club he took Elberfeld with him the youngster failed to make good with the stick and was sent to the Western League for further schooling. When Mr. Stallings became manager of the Detroit Club he again secured Elberfeld and soon made a noted player of him. He was the star of the Detroit team for several years. In 1903, when Mr. Edward Barrow became manager of the Detroit team, he fell out with Elberfeld and the breach became me so serious that Mr. Barrow decided to rid himself of the brilliant young player who appeared to be the whole Detroit works, and placed him upon the market. Nearly every club in the two major leagues made offers for Elberfeld and New York finally secured him for three players and a big cash bonus. Elberfeld at once plugged up a big hole in the New York Infield, put that team into the running for balance of last season, and has been a big factor in the Highlanders' great success this season. Incidentally, Detroit has not yet been able to satisfactorily fill the gap left by Elberfeld's transfer. Elberfeld is a wonderful fielder splendid batsman, clever baserunner, and with it all possesses the judgment, dash and daring that go to make what is called a 'winning player."

Bombers' last visit rekindles memories of longtime AL foes
July 6, 1999
BY RICHARD BAK
FREE PRESS SPECIAL WRITER

It all started with Cobb
Appropriately, the list of memorable moments begins with Cobb. On Aug. 30, 1905, the skinny 18-year-old rookie dug in against New York's Jack Chesbro at Bennett Park. After spotting Chesbro two strikes, Cobb ripped a run-scoring double off the grizzled spitballer, the first of 4,191 hits he would accumulate during a 24-year career.
Later in the series, the Georgia Peach attempted to steal second with a headfirst slide. Waiting with the ball was a crusty ex-Tiger shortstop named Kid Elberfeld, who gave the rook "the teach," sticking his knee into Cobb's neck and rubbing his nose in the dirt. Cobb got up sputtering and red-faced, as the crowd and veteran players hooted and laughed.
Two years later, a more mature Cobb was in the outfield as the Tigers, en route to their first pennant, played their first Sunday game at Bennett Park. For years the local "blue laws," which prohibited amusements on the Sabbath, had forced the Tigers to arrange home dates outside city limits. There were no raids on this Sunday, however, as the mayor and police chief were part of the record crowd of 9,635 to watch the Tigers trim New York, 13-6.

Obituary Chattanooga, Tenn., Jan 13 (AP)
Norman (Kid) Elberfeld, whose career in major and minor league baseball covered more than 30 years, died here late tonight. His age was 69. He contracted lobar pneumonia less than a week ago.
Elberfeld was born in Pomeroy, Ohio, and at the age of 18 embarked on a baseball career that continued until 1938. The "Tabasco Kid" broke into organized baseball in 1892 in Clarkson, Tenn.
He played shortstop in the majors, beginning in 1901 with the Detroit Tigers and finally winding up in 1911 with the Washington Senators. He also was with the Cincinnati Reds briefly.
His tenure with the Highlanders here ended at the close of the 1909 season, after he had succeeded Clark Griffith as manager in 1908 when the present Washington owner quit after a team flare-up. From 1915 to 1917 Elberfeld managed the Chattanooga Lookouts, then went on to Little Rock, where he managed for several years, winning a pennant in 1920.
Early in his baseball career Elberfeld bought an apple orchard on Signal Mountain, near Chattanooga, where he had his home at his death. There he raised a family of five girls and a boy, all of whom displayed great skill in athletics. The girls formed a basketball team, playing as "The Elberfeld Girls," and appearing on many Southern programs for several years.
---------------------------------
Rogers Hornsby, a man known to have been sparing with praise, said of Travis Jackson, "In all the years I watched him, playing with him and against him, I never saw him make a mistake."
Hall of Famer Jackson was nicknamed "Stonewall" for his stone wall defense at shortstop. He led the National League twice in fielding percentage and four times in assists, and Joe Cronin once said that Jackson was "as good a shortstop as ever lived." As a batter "Stoney" topped .300 six times, once hit game-winning homers in both halves of a doubleheader, and in 1930, a year when batting averages reached new heights, was part of the best-hitting infield in history.
Jackson began playing baseball with town teams around his native Waldo, Arkansas. In 1921 Norman "Kid" Elberfeld, who'd been watching Jackson since he was 14, said there was a place for him on the Southern Association's Little Rock Travelers, whose shortstop had just broken his leg. Jackson later said, "The first time I stepped on the field I was in awe. I never saw a park that big. And there I was holding my pants up with a cotton rope."
That year he hit .200 and made 21 errors in only 39 games. In 1922 he raised his batting average to .280 but still committed 73 errors. "A lot of those were double errors-two on the same play, a boot and then a wild throw. The people in the first base and right field bleachers knew me. When the ball was hit to me they scattered."
But Elberfeld had sung Jackson's praises to John McGraw: "You'd like him. He's skinny, but he'll get better as he goes along. Have somebody look at him." McGraw did, and Jackson almost made history in his first major league game. With runners on first and second, a Cincinnati batter hit a liner just to his left. Instead of catching it in the air, Jackson said, "I had to take it on the pickup and so we got a double play. If I had caught it, we would have had a triple play. Imagine, on the first ball hit to me in the majors!"
Jackson was a utility player in 1923, first filling in for Heinie Groh when the third baseman injured his knee and then for regular Dave "Beauty" Bancroft when the shortstop contracted pneumonia in June. The rookie was so impressive that McGraw traded Hall of Famer Bancroft to the Braves. Giants fans howled over the decision, but soon Jackson was just as good as Bancroft.

CASEY STENGEL

Chapter 8
The Player

Within weeks, it was obvious he was not good enough as a pitcher, but he could hit and run and did have a strong arm, so they made him an outfielder and sent him down to Class C, at Kankakee, Illinois. That league folded in midseason and they moved him down to Class D at Shelbyville, Kentucky. After a few weeks, that team was sold and transferred to Maysville, Kentucky, and as the season ended he was brought back to Kansas City and got into a couple of games.
He had impressed nobody, but had taught himself to play the outfield and to slide. During the winter, he tried dental school, but all the instruments were designed for right-handers, he complained later. For 1911, the Blues sent him to Aurora, near Chicago, in Class C. There his dedicated practice and natural ability started to show. He hit .352 and led the league in stolen bases. A Brooklyn Dodger scout came out to see him, liked what he saw, and told the Dodgers to draft him. For 1912 they optioned him out to Montgomery, Alabama, the next level down from Triple-A.
There he became the protégé of an old shortstop, Kid Elberfeld, then thirty-seven years old. Elberfeld had played thirteen seasons with five major league teams, most of the time with the Yankees, whom he managed for part of 1908. He took it upon himself to teach the twenty-one-year-old Stengel major league tricks, like the best way to execute the hit-and-run, and an attitude Stengel internalized for life: 'If you're going to be a big leaguer, act like a big leaguer."

[NI02134] Meigs County, Ohio History
THE GENHEIMER FAMILY
The Genheimer ancestry dates back to a Velton G. Genheimer, who came to Opau, Germany, in the year 1651. Some years later, two brothers, descendants of Velton, Johann (John) and his brother Heinrich (Henry), of Opau, and their wives, Katherine and ·Anna Maria Schlagel, sisters, of Edigheim, Germany, emigrated to America in 1837. They came to Ohio and established homes in the old German Settlement of Meigs County; John, on a farm now owned by Kenneth Newland; Henry, on a farm now owned by Edison Hollon.
The Genheimers were farmers, carpenters, wood-workers, etc. The Genheimer Lumber Company, and the Genheimer Hardware Company of Pomeroy, were owned and operated by members of the Genheimer families.
The Genheimers were strong believers in the Christian faith, and through their efforts, and donation ot the site, the old German Methodist Church was built in 1842. Known for some years as the Genheimer, or the German, M.E. Church, the old church is still standing, but no longer used for worship or community activities. The Genheimer family cemetery is located on a hill near the old church.
Descendants of John and Katherine Schlagel Genheimer are: Barbara Genheimer; Elizabeth Genheimer m. Nikolas Bengel, one child, William; Katherine, m. William Schneider, five children: Charles, Samuel, Anna (Young), Katherine (Miller), Leah; Mary m. Jacob Elberfeld, ten children: William m. Elizabeth Meier, Lydia m. C.H. Vickers, Edward, Jacob m. Katie Meese, Samuel, Daniel, Alfred, Benjamin m. Goldia More, Maud, Joseph; Margaret m. Henry Fruth, five children: Henry, John m. Nellie Smith, Charles, m. Verdie Price, Esther m. Leslie Kimes, Katherine; Christena m. John Koester, five children:
Katherine, Wesley, Anna m. Henry Eppelin, William, Clara m. Fred Bay; John P. Genheimer m. Wilhelmina Schmidt, ten children: Theodore, Agnes, Augusta, Arthur, Lucretia, Adah, Otto m. Clara Gans, Stella m. Joseph Weck, Paul, Marie m. Leslie Carter.

Meigs County, Ohio History

ELBERFELD FARM
The boys had returned home and names of unpronounceable European cities were fading memories. Business was booming and Meigs County was reaping the benefits of Post-World War I prosperity. Jacob Elberfied and other business-men were looking for property on which to build a golf course. He purchased land one mile west of Tuppers Plains. However, his associates couldn't raise sufficient money so Papa Elberfeld gave it to his wife and they created a legacy that endures today for the Elberfelds.
Papa purchased the keystone of the Elberfeld farm from heirs of Lydia Patton on 17 September 1924 and had it deeded to Katie M. Elberfeld (Mama). Subsequent real estate purchases within the next several years completed the transaction that comprise the Elberfeld farm. Owners of these farms were Samuel and Mary Caton, Edward Rivers, and James Decker. Adjacent landowners at the time of acqui-sition were: Horace Kilton, J. F. Branch, L. Hoffman, L. Keebaugh, Minnie Caloway, Henrietta Rivers, Frank Cole, William Shields.
The property was vacant when purchased. Brush in the front yard and chicken coops and a pig-pen were removed. Mama had the front and rear stoops and an out-kitchen removed. A porch was constructed and the rear was screened for use as a sleeping and dining area.
Water came from a well and cisterns. Mama's brother, George Mees, designed a water system. Water was piped throughout the house by gasoline pump. Heated water was pumped to the second floor and distributed by gravity. The family cooked on a kerosene stove. Light was from lanterns. Electricity came from a gasoline motor generator and large storage batteries.
Many customers at Elberfeld's were farmers, so soon Papa was " farming"-Wearing rubber boots, he scattered feed for chickens, guineas and geese which he freed from their coops. They inevitably ended on the porch irritating Mama.
The children swam in Meigs Creek and at Reedsville. In the days of the model A, gravel and mud roads, transportation was an adventure. Consequently, Mama asked Papa if the farm could have a pool. Papa, as always, acquiesced. A large pool was built using ponies and scrapers. The pool is still used.
Veer and Guy Caloway, Elias and Frank Cole and Elmer Mauck worked on the farm. Harry Caloway has been overseer for 37 years. The fine compliments on the grounds are due to his fine work and dedication. Robert Elberfeld manages the property and is president of Elberfeld Farms, Inc.
The farm was used in summers when Mama and the children spent vacations and weekends. It also was used for church picnics and other outings. The largest was the store picnic. Employees of Elberfeld stores in Parkersburg, Marietta, Logan, Chillicothe, Jackson and Pomeroy would gather for swimming, games and a huge picnic.
The farm has changed since 1925. Water comes from Tuppers Plains-Chester Water District, electricity by wire and high-ways are paved. The farm still serves as a focal point for the family and great grandchildren who never knew Mama and Papa spend vacations. The farm serves as a link connecting each generation with the other and truly is a family farm.

A.M. ELBERFELD Alfred Mees Elberfeld - February 13, 1899-December24, 1973.
Alfred Mees Elberfeld was born Febru-ary 13, 1899 in Pomeroy, Ohio. He was the second child born to Jacob Bauer "Papa" Elberfeld (1868-1963) and Katha-rine Mees "Mama" Elberfeld (1872-1960).
Alfred was one of ten children born to Mama and Papa and raised in the large
brick home on Mulberry Avenue. His brothers and sisters included Jacob, Ima Lydia Mae, Katharine, Earl Henry, Martin, Barbara, Robert, and Rachael.
Alfred went to work in the family busi-ness with his father at age fourteen but was in the service before his seventeenth birthday. He served in Europe during World War I in the 37th Division.
Upon return from the service Alfred married Helen Catherine Laughead in 1919. Alfred and Helen raised three children; Mary Elizabeth, Helen Francis, and Richard Bradford.
Alfred is probably best remembered for his association with the Elberfelds in Pom-eroy Company to which he devoted over fifty years of his life. He was a family minded businessman, always fair and generous to his employees and customers alike.
He greatly expanded the originally small family business into the department store which is still family owned and operated today.
Alfred died suddenly on Christmas Eve in 1973, but will long be remembered by many personal friends, business acquain-tances, and family alike. He is survived by all his brothers and sisters, except Jacob, who died in 1978, his three children, ten grandchildren, and twelve great-grandchildren. Submitted by Mary Elberfeld Morris

The Democrat will, from week to week, as the assessors make their returns,
publish a list of the babies born in the county during the past year.
If your baby's name is not in the list it is evidence that the assessor has
neglected his work. If the name is not correctly spelled, you should call on
the probate judge and have it corrected as it may become a matter of great
importance at some period of the child's life.
In this list the name of the child, the date of birth and father's name is
given:

Pomeroy 3d Ward
Earl Henry, Sept. 26, J. B. ELBERFELD

HARRY RUSSELL STOUT
Harry Stout, the son of Elizabeth Russel CaIdwell Stout and Winfield Scott Stout was born, 7 June 1901, on the family farm in Orange Township. Family records indi-cate that the Stout farm, which is about one mile east of Alfred, just north of Route 681, was in continuous ownership of a Stout since 1825, until Harry sold it in 1947. Abner Stout (1794-1870) purchased the keystone parcel (100 acres) from Jo-seph Smart in 1825, thus linking the prop-erty to the Ohio Company of Associates. The property, with additions and modifi-cations, was passed from Abner to Aaron Stout (1821-1897), to Winfield Scott Stout (1849-1903), to Harry Stout (1901-1964).
Harry was the only child of Winfield and "Lizzie", but his mother had children by a previous marriage. Harry's half-brothers and sisters were Clay, Ward, Mrytle, Francis and Stella. Harry's Uncle Dave Russel lived " "up the road" on Calo-way Ridge. Dave, who married Coy Hawk's sister, Merlie, was like a father to Harry, as Winfield Scott Stout met an un-timely death. After putting up hay, the men rushed to the barn to avoid a summer storm. A bolt of lightning struck Winfield as he stood in the doorway of the barn. Miraculously, none of the other men were harmed. (Dave and Merlie had two daugh-ters, Roxie who lives in Marietta; Sybil lives in Columbus.)
Harry left home when a teenager to " "seek his fortune" working on the west coast as a logger and roustabout in the oil fields. He enlisted in the Air Corps when he was in California. World War I ended before he could fly.
He returned to Ohio and worked in Akron in a tire factory. Saving money, he purchased an auto repair shop in Athens. Where he married Mary Belle Taylor on 8 June 1936. (Mary is the daughter of David R. and Nora B. Taylor of Little Hocking). Dave was a skilled gunsmith making muz-zle loaders of superb craftsmanship and beauty.
Harry sold the business in 1937 so that he could own and train race horses. His mainstay was Thoroughway. The horse was doing well and winning in the East when it was poisoned. He sold the remain-
der of his stock and moved to Little Hocking. He worked at Remington Rand, es-tablishing a home in Marietta in which his widow still resides. He worked as a tool and die maker working up to production engineer. During the war he also worked in Moundsville for the War Materials Pro-duction Board.
Remington Rand moved their produc-tion division to Johnstown, Pa. Harry re-mained in Marietta. He purchased the Steadman Foundry, renamed it Pioneer City Casting, and moved it to Belpre. He also owned and managed the Kootz and Strohman Foundry in Parkersburg.
Harry and Mary had two daughters. Nora Elizabeth was born 18 August 1940. She attended schools in Marietta and Ohio University. She remembers visiting the Stout farm when she was a little girl. Nora married Allan Elberfeld (son of Rob-ert Elberfeld and grandson of Jacob El-berfeld) on 7 September 1963. They have one daughter, Andrea Elizabeth, (14) and reside in Barboursville, W. Va. (Allan and Nora own the Frank Cole farm which is adjacent to the Elberfeld farm and close to the former Stout home place.)
Linda Elaine was born 18 April 1945.
She attended schools in Marietta and Ohio State University. She has two children, Megan Comfort (13) and Jason Comfort (17). Linda is married to Thomas Walker. They reside in Huntington, W.Va.

"The opportunity for jobs in the Ohio Valley." This was what Jacob Elberfeld heard after he arrived in New York in 1854 at the age of 20. He was born in Bavaria, Germany, in 1834. Later he traveled to Philadelphia and Pittsburg, and from there traveled to Marietta by skiff down the Ohio River where he met his brother-in-law, who accompanied him to Pomeroy by way of wagon.
Mr. Elberfeld started out in his new home at his old German Occupation, working as a stonemason in what is now known as Monkey Run in Pomeroy. He worked at this job for the summer and then found employment in a coal mine, dumping coal cars.
Mr. Elberfeld wanted to learn the English language, so after sav-ing his money for several months, he quit work and attended school at the old Pomeroy Academy. His earliest experience in the retail trade was placing a shelf of shoes for sale in his uncle's cobbIer shop. He was offered a position as clerk in the Moore and Osbourne store and remained at this job for six years before going into business for himself.
On January 24, 1860, Mr. Elberfeld married Anna Mary Genheimer of Chester. They were blessed with twelve children. He died July 21, 1887.
The first Elberfeld store, set up by Jacob Elberfeld I, started as a grocery. Eggs, chickens, and rabbits would be accepted from the neighboring farmers in return for other food supplies and yard goods.
The store was located in Pomeroy's lower block, where the War-ner Insurance Co. is now located, but shortly after going into business, Mr. Elberfeld suffered great loss when his store and all his merchandise were destroyed in a fire which burned the entire block. The fire had not yet quit smoldering when Mr. Elberfeld decided to construct a wooden frame building in the same location. He had goods ordered from Cincinnati that arrived by riverboat, and he was back in business again. This structure was used for many years.
History is unclear about the exact sequence of events, but the Meig County Telegraph of Dec. 5, 1883, stated, "It is a positive fact that Elberfeld's are selling their entire stock of dry goods, cloaks, dolmans, etc., at or near the cost to erect a brick store instead of the frame now occupied by them" The same paper under the date of Feb. 13, 1884, stated, "Buildings floated off or lodged-Jacob Elberfeld's store on Front Street.'
In the August 20, 1884 paper, the headlines said, "43 buildings go up in smoke in the square above the Remington House" (Martin Hotel and now Meigs Inn). The August 20th issue said, "Last Sat-urday night, Council passed an ordinance prohibiting wooden buildings higher than ten feet in the burned district." Whether a similar ordinance had been passed when the lower block burned is not known at this writing. Apparently the wooden building was used until it was replaced by the brick building which still bears the
Elberfeld name and is now used by the Dale Warner Insurance Agency.
Mr. Elberfeld had seven sons, but all of them left Pomeroy for other endeavors except Jacob II and Will, who continued to operate the store after the death of their father. By this time the store was also selling dry goods, carpet, and ready to wear clothing.
In 1911 Jacob and Will bought the present location of the Elberfeld store in the middle block in Pomeroy. At that time it was the Grand Dilcher Hotel.
On January 13, 1897, Jacob married one of his clerks, Miss Katherine Mees of Mason, West Virginia. About two years later the large Elberfeld home on Mulberry Ave. in Pomeroy was built. The couple always had a love of children and the eleven rooms of their home were filled with them. They had ten children; five sons and five daughters.
Mr. Elberfeld took pride in his store, and could be seen walking from his residence on Mulberry Avenue to his business every morning for many years. He would be typically dressed in a gray suit and vest, white shirt, black bow tie, derby hat, and carrying his cane and umbrella.
It was a common sight to find Mr. Elberfeld seated at the cash drawer, better known as the ‘monkey cage' on the first floor of his store. However, one could always be sure that no matter how busy he was, he always had time to make Over any little children that came around.
Mr. Elberfeld actively worked at the store until he was ninety years old and then retired to his home. He died in 1963 at the age of ninety-six. His son, Alfred Mees Elberfeld, then continued the management until his death in 1973. John Anderson, a fifth generation descendant of the Jacob Elberfeld who came to the Ohio Valley in the 1850’s, and Robert Elberfeld, another of Jacob’s sons, are now directing the business.
Elberfeld’s store is now well established in Pomeroy and features many departments and name-brand merchandise. Many of the same products that were carried 100 years ago are still handled by
the store-
One of the slogans that the Elberfeld store has had during its years in operation is "Meet your friends at Elberfeld’s," and still today this is a gathering place for many Meigs Countians. It seems as if the family-like atmosphere of the store cannot be surpassed. The seven generations of Elberfeld’s that Meigs County now knows are truly something that will always be prominent in the history of Meigs County and southern Ohio.
Most of the above material was taken from an essay written in
April, 1973 by Edie Mees King to fulfill the requirements in her
high school English Class in Meigs High School.


Meigs County Ohio History Book
THE ELBERFELDS
It is recalled through oral tradition and family records that Jacob Elberfeld of Lambshein Canton, Frankenthahahl, Rhemkreis, Bavaria, came to America in his twentieth year, arriving in New York on August 15, 1854. After a journey via Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and thence to Marietta by boat, Mr. Elberfeld arrived in Pomeroy by wagon with his brother-in-law, John Reuter, on September 10. Working in the coal mines near Monkey Run as a stone-mason making water boxes, Mr. Elberfeld saved his money, enrolled in the Pomeroy Academy, and also worked as a clerk in a store. En-tering into business for himself on Octo-ber 1, 1864, by selling goods to the public, Mr. Elberfeld started a mercantile business that survives to the present. Mr. Elberfeld, on January 24, 1860, married Anna Mary Genheimer.
Upon his death in 1887 one of his twelve children, Jacob Bauer Elberfeld, born in 1868, continued the business till his death in 1963, when his son, Alfred, worked the family enterprise, which is now administered by a direct sixth generation lineal descendant of Mr. Elberfeld of Bavaria.
Jacob Bauer Elberfeld (1868-1963) married, January 13, 1897, Katie Mees (1872-1960). This union produced ten children: Jacob (October 26, 1897-November 12, 1978), Alfred (February 13, 1899-December 24, 1973), Ima Keller (February 20, 1901), Earl (September 26, 1902), Lydia Siddal (May 9, 1905), Kathe-rine Slagel (October 3, 1906), Martin (July 21, 1908), Robert (June 16, 1911), Bar-bara Lytle (February 14, 1913), Rachael Downie (April 9, 1916). The descendants of Jacob and Katie through the sixth generation number 100.
The family continues in the mercantile trade and now, over a century removed from Germany, also has members in the professions, crafts, and trades and government service throughout the United States-although a significant portion of the family remains in Ohio.
The Elberfelds have become completely assimilated into the culture of America although vestiges of prior traditions continue. The original Jacob would not permit German to be spoken in the home, so that his children could learn English and thereby better participate in the affairs of America. Lutheranism remains the dominant faith. Addiction to certain foods served at the table and spoken for as kuchen (coffee cake) and smierkase (cottage cheese) reveal a shared and common background.
The original Jacob Elberfeld was from a large family. His own family and that ot his wife also were large by today's standards. The distribution of the heirs of his own and children's siblings is not known for certain, although unpublished census records indicate that only 500 people in 1970 had Elberfeld as a surname. It is known that Elberfelds live in Florida, Chicago, and Philadelphia.
The second Jacob purchased in 1927 a farm in Orange Township which has been, and continues to be, used by the family. In recent years it has served as a focal point for family gatherings and vacations, usually in August. Submirted by Allen Elberfeld

History of Meigs County - Generations--Four or More
Contributed by Mrs. Jacob Elberfeld, Sr., Pomeroy
In the spring of 1848 a young lad started out from his family and fatherland in Germany to seek his fortune in the new free world of the United States of America. Hope beat high in his you heart as he stod on the deck of the ship that plied the Atlantic in those days of unrest in Europe. He in this New World he vowed he would make his way so that he could live the democratic life he so fiercely desired. He promised himself and his God that he would follow the rules of his new country and bring honor to the land that was receiving him. This he did. Fate brought this fine yound lad-Jacob Elberfeld-down the Ohio River to Pomeroy, Meigs County, Ohio. Here he worked and studied, learned English language, and saved. He respected the laws of the town, the county, the state and the nation. In due time he became an American citizen. He married a young woman from Chester, Meigs County, Ohio-Anna Mary Genheimer, and they joined their fortunes and founded a fine family. Some of the children died in infancy, but the following grew to maturity. Edward Elberfeld, Alfred G. Elberfeld and Samuel Elberfeld, who at an early age moved from Meigs COunty to seek their way in COlumbus Ohio; Dana Elberfeld, who left Meigs County to spend his life all over the world; Lydia Elberfeld, who married C. H. Vickers and moved to Los Angeles, California; William Elberfeld, who married Elizabeth Meier and spent his life in Meigs County; Benjamin Elberfeld, who married Goldia Moore and resides in Thomas Fork; and Jacob Bauer Elberfeld, who spent his entire life in Pomeroy, Meigs County.

The first Jacob Elberfeld of Meigs County worked for S. A. M. Moore in his store. From him, and through his own diligence, the first Elberfeld learned the way of business, which he taught his sones. The story of his business is too long for this brief space. The present business in Meigs County is the outgrowth of the dreams of the young lad who came to this country and gave to it his devotion, his strength, his intelligence and his sons.
The son who remained here-Jacob Bauer Elberfeld-followed in his father's steps, giving in the same measure of fortitude in times of stress and devotion to God and country in his truly American way of life. On January 13, 1897, Jacob Bauer Elberfeld and Katherine Mess of Mason, West Virginia, were married. This union has been blessed with the following children.

[NI03334] Thank you for your file. Here are some additions - and the assumptions behind them.


Meigs County Ohio History Book
THE ELBERFELDS
It is recalled through oral tradition and family records that Jacob Elberfeld of Lambshein Canton, Frankenthahahl, Rhemkreis, Bavaria, came to America in his twentieth year, arriving in New York on August 15, 1854. After a journey via Baltimore, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, and thence to Marietta by boat, Mr. Elberfeld arrived in Pomeroy by wagon with his brother-in-law, John Reuter, on September 10.

From an LDS microfilm (LM 017550)
District of New York
Port of New York
Aug 15 1854
From London
Ship: American Union (Best guess on hand-written name)
Captain: Alexander Keef (Again, handwriting was not clear)
From original passenger list:
Philip Eberfeld 25 male grocer Mecklenburg
Jacob Eberfeld 23

The misspelling of Elberfeld on the passenger list made them tough to track down, but I still could not locate them on any printed references.
The date of arrival matches information for Philip Elberfeld (my great grandfather) from my grandmother.

My assumption:
Philip (Philippus) and Jacob (Jacobus) were brothers, and the sons of Joannis Elberfeld and Margarethae Mueller. Eva Elberfeld, who married John Reuter, was their sister.

Records from Pomeroy, Meigs County, Ohio, show that Philip, Jacob, Eva and Frederick Elberfeld all settled their in the 1850s.

Joannis and Margarethae had a ninth child (not in your file, but in the IGI Germany microfiche) named Frederick (Fredericus).

While not absolute proof, which I am looking for still, it seems logical that:

Joannis and Margarethea are the parents of Philip, Jacob, Eva and Frederick Elberfeld (IGI and your records confirm this) and these are the same Elberfelds that arrived in Pomeroy, Ohio. The ages match known records in the US. Philip's birthday is April 28, 1831, two days before the christening date of Philippus Elberfeld, son of Joannis, in the IGI file.

I also went through Rembe's Lambsheim: Die Familien von 1547 bis 1800.

According to that book, Joannis Elberfeld, son of Leonhard, married M. Marg. Muller in 1815. The IGI states that Joan Elberfeld married Maria Magareth Muellerin on April 9, 1815. This helped pin down that the book and IGI list were referring to the same people.

I believe you have duplicate listings for Leonhard - My guess is the Leonhard who married Susanna Anna Margareta Kuppelmeyer in Rembe's book is the same as your Leonardi Elberfeld who with Margaretha Kuppelmaier are listed as the parents of Anna Margaretha from the IGI microfiche.

Rembe lists Leonhard as the son of Peter Elberfeld and Anna Maria with siblings Philip, Katharina (your relative), Jakob, Leonard and Adam.

The IGI list shows a Peter Elberfeld married Anna Maria Hermaennin on Jun 29 1744, and Petri and Anna Maria are listed as parents of 13 children in the IGI, including Phillipus 1 May 1747, Jacobus 31 Aug 1750,, Anna Catharina christened 19 Jun 1752, Catherina christened 12 Feb 1756, Joes Leonardus christened 14 Sept 1745. And Joannis Adamus christened 9 Oct 1759. While the IGI dates don't match Rembe's estimates, they are close, and the birth order is the same.


Now, where did Peter come from? Since his children were born in Hettenleidelheim, I looked through the IGI list for families from that area and came across a Joes Petrus born 8 May 1718 to a Jois Sebastiani Elberfeld and Maria Margaretha. The IGI lists eight children born to Sebastiani and Mariae Margarethae.
It also lists a male Elberfeld marrying Maria Margaretha Cannii on 12 oct 1716 in Hettenleidelheim, just a year before Joes Petrus was born. Joes Petrus is about the right age and location to be Peter. Nothing I'd bet my life on, but it looks good.

So… the Katharina Elberfeld who married Johannes Philip Jerge seems to be the daughter of Joes Petrus Elberfeld and Anna Maria Hermaennin. This makes her the sister of Joes Leonardus Elberfeld, who is the father of Joannis Elberfeld, who is the father of Philip Elberfeld, my great grandfather.

AND THANK YOU
Your work was a great help and forced me to organize my thoughts and state where my big assumptions were made.

I hope you don't take as true everything I've stated above, but it might give you a few solid ideas to pursue. If you find any errors, please let me know so I can start work in other directions.

I've seen your name in several places, but all my email was returned. Thanks for following through and contacting me.

MEMOIR OF A RETIRED COLLEGE DEAN
by
JOHN ELBERFELD
1981


My father graduated from Meadville Theological School (now part of the University of Chicago) with all A's. He then did a year of graduate work at Harvard.

Mother graduated from the Conservatory of Music in Quincy, Illinois, where she majored in voice.

My mother and father met when Daddy was the Unitarian Minister in Quincy, Illinois and mother was the paid soloist of the church. Mother, whose family were devoted Baptists, greatly upset the family by marrying a Unitarian Minister. Her mother did not attend the wedding on July 12, 1901. but was completely reconciled after my birth.

My parents moved from Quincy to Buffalo, New York where I was born on April 27, 1903. Daddy had a job with an Incubator Company as a public re-lations man.

When I was about six months old , we moved to Chattanooga, Tennessee where we lived near Uncle Norman Elberfeld for about six months. Uncle Norman was the famous big league baseball player, "Kid" Elberfeld, also known as THE TABASCO KID.

We then moved to Danvers, Massachusetts, where Daddy was the Unitarian
* Minister and the chaplain of the Danvers State Mental Hospital. My brother W Frank was born in Danvers on March 8, 1905.

The next move was to Hyde Park, Massachusetts where Daddy was the Unitarian Minister. Everywhere we lived, Mother was the soloist and sang for weddings, funerals and all sorts of functions. It is here that I begin to have some memories.

Mother was ironing in the kitchen with the window open when we put some peanuts on the window sill. A squirrel came right into the kitchen to eat them!

One night we had some special company for dinner and were having roast chicken. The chicken must have been an old hen, because when Daddy started to carve it, the chicken was so tough that it slipped off the platter into the lap of the company.

It was in Hyde Park that I said my first poem at a Sunday School entertainment, Here it is:
I am a little curly head ,
My father is the preacher.
I love to go to Sunday School,
Just to tease my teacher!

While in Hyde Park, my father was elected to the Board of Directors of the local YMCA. When the National YMCA organization learned of the fact that he was a Unitarian Minister, they told the local "Y" he would have to resign or the local ~'Y" would be dropped from the national organization. That attitude changed radically over the years, as shown by the fact that I was a certified YMCA Secretary for many years, and I, too, was ~ Unitarian.

When I was five years old, the family took a trip to Cincinnati, Ohio to visit the many Elberfeld relatives (10 children in my father's family!), Three vivid memories of that trip stand out,. It was the first and only time that I saw my grandmother and grandfather Elberfeld. My cousin, Ethel Branch, had a Shetland pony and she took us for a ride in the little pony cart. We later had Patsy on the farm in Charlestown, New Hampshire. One night the air was full of fireflies. Ethel, Frank and I filled glass jars with them to make lanterns.

After Cincinnati, Mother, Frank and I went on to Quincy, Illinois to visit my grandmother, and grand-stepfather Bourne. The only memory I have of that visit was the time Frank and I found some old paint cans and really messed up our clothes. I don't know who was the main influence, but we never got a spanking.

When I was five years old, we moved to Charlestown, New Hampshire, a beautiful little town of 600 people on the Connecticut River. We lived right in town for a few months. While there, I was digging in the back yard where I made a great discovery. I found a piece of coal, and all excited rushed in to tell Mother that I had found a coalmine!

Our next move was to SKY FA1~N in Charlestown. It was a 275-acre farm located five miles from town. The nearest house was a mile away in one direction, and ten miles in the other. There was no telephone, so Daddy put in a mile of poles so that we could get onto a 24 party line!

For awhile, our only means of transportation was Patsy, the Shetland pony from Cincinnati. Soon we had an old horse named Aunt Mary, after Aunt Mary Maag, Mother's sister. Daddy bought two little lambs for Frank and me. They were very playful and would come a~ butt us. The only trouble was, they grew faster than we did, but still liked to butt us, which got to be painful!

We had a large pair of oxen, named Dick and Buck, to do most of the farm work. One time the hired man took a load of hay to town. and came back in the evening, a two and a half hour trip. He went to sleep and woke up about two o'clock in the morning to find the oxen had located a good hay field and were having a good meal.

Before we got the telephone, Mr. Swan, who owned Swan's Hotel, drove into the yard one day very much disturbed. He thought something had happened to Daddy because he had not shown up at church to preach. Daddy had lost track of the days and thought it was Saturday!

We had an old fox hound named Sanko. He loved to go to church and start a fuss with Lizzie Webber's Airedale. As a result, we tied him up on Sunday mornings. Being a very smart dog, he would disappear on Saturday, and then show up in church on Sunday.

When I was about seven, Mother, Frank and I went to visit Mother's cousin, Alf Holton, in Brooklyn, New York over Christmas. I was given some salted peanuts and I offered some to an Aunt. She refused because she had just brushed her teeth. I could not imagine anyone refusing salted peanuts for any reason.
While we were in Brooklyn, Mother became sick, so two elderly Aunts took care of Frank and me. They took us to a show at the Hypodrome where a train went across the stage and an airplane flew over the stage. They had a large pool on the stage out of which girls with wings came and flew over the stage. They then took us to see my first movie. There was a cowboy and Indian show and a movie of a submarine. The really big thing the Aunts did was to take us to the Bronx Zoo. I do not know how they did it, but they got us into the cages to feed the hippopotamus and the ele-phant. To top it all off, a keeper took us in a back room with Blondie, a famous chimpanzee. He did all sorts of things for us, including picking out a key and opening a door.

While we lived in Charlestown, Daddy worked hard to get the town to establish a High School, which did happen.

I went to a two room school in North Charlestown which was five miles from the farm. I did not start school until I was seven because Daddy and Mother felt I was too young to make the trip, In the spring and fall, I walked about a mile along an old grass covered road. I was then picked up by the small kid-team (buggy or sleigh) along with a second kid. This took us two miles to an old grist mill where we got on the big kid-team for the last two miles. The big kid-team in summer was a hay wagon with plank seats along the sides; in winter it was a logging sled with planks for seats, robes for warmth and straw on the floor. Grades 1-4 were in one room, and 5-8 in the other. The teacher taught art and music as well as the other subjects. The school was a beautifully built stone building and it looks as good today as it did then. I feel that having four grades in one room was a help to me because I could learn with the upper classes.

Unitarian ministers seldom stayed in one place more than three to five years. Either the congregation tired of the minister, or the minister tired of the congregation. Our next move was to Pepperill, Massachusetts where we lived for a few months while Daddy candidated for a new church. It was a very rough time because Daddy even worked as a grave digger to earn enough money to feed us. A life saver was winning a barrel of flour at a church supper by making the closest estimate of the number of beans in a glass jar.

We next moved to Peterborough, New Hampshire where Daddy became the minister of a beautiful Bulfinch style church. We lived in a very large parsonage with 14 room, a large barn, and a library full of books. There are many memories of Peterborough, but I shall relate only a few of them.

We had a very large yard which became a playground for many of the town's kids. A favorite game was prisoner 's base, because we had a whole hillside to hide on across the street. There was a swimming hole about a mile away where I spent many hours learning to swim. Daddy worked hard and raised money and volunteer help to establish the Adams Playground, which included the swimming hole. In the wintertime we skated on the Contoocook River above the dam. A thrill was to skate over the RUBBER ice. This was formed when water from a tributary river flooded the ice and then froze enough to support us if we skated fast. The new ice would go up and down as if it were rubber.

Mother, because of her singing, was involved in much of the MacDowell Summer events. We had MacDowell colonists boarding at our large parsonage, and since Mother had a grand piano, there seemed always to be music.

I was always interested in science. When 1 was eleven years old, I made the first crystal radio receiver in Peterborough. By saving my money I bought a one inch spark coil so t could send code? which I learned well enough to determine the call letters of the stations I could hear. Soon after this, Davis White (later General I. D. White) also made sending and receiving sets, so we could communicate.

One way I had of earning money, was raising pigeons. I had a type of trap door in a window in a room in' the barn. The pigeons would come inside through the door to get food I placed there and not be able to escape. There was a woman in town who would buy all the squabs I could raise.

The people who lived next door to the parsonage were Dr. and Mrs. Karl S. Kyes. They had a new baby named Catherine whom they put out on OUR yard for naps in her carriage. This meant that I could not play out in our yard. Since it was not her fault, I have forgiven her. She is now Mrs. John
Elberfeld!

Being war-time, Daddy promoted the growing of potatoes among the 12 to 15 year olds. I won third prize in Hillsborough County.

Our next move was to Framingham, Massachusetts where Daddy worked for the government promoting Victory Gardens. Because of his German ancestry, he could not get a church. He tried to get a job with the Overseas YMCA but could not for the same reason. Nobody could be more AMERICAN than his mother and father. They never spoke German in their home because they wanted their children to grow up to be AMERICANS. If this were common practice, we would not need bilingual education and the country would be better off and not be a country of ethnic groups.

In Framingham we lived within a two minute walk of a pond, so I did a lot of swimming and skating. When we moved to Framingham I skipped the 7th Grade and never missed it because there is so much repetitive work in elementary grades. Here I had a Victory Garden and won first prize with
it. I was a very active Boy Scout.

My father heard about a Pre-officer Training Camp at the University of Massachusetts. Minimum age was 16, but because I was nearly 6 feet tall at age 14, he worked it so that I was accepted. It was really a rugged experience going through all the military training with 16 and 17 year olds.

In Framingham I played a lot of sandlot baseball and football. Dick (Richard Bourne) was born here on January 27, 1917.

Because of the difficulty with the German background, my folks moved back to a second farm in Charlestown, New Hampshire. I was in the 9th grade in Elementary School when I left Framingham. Since I had not had the High School subjects, I had to return to the eighth grade in Charlestown thus losing the advantage I had gained.

To keep us alive, Daddy got a job as an oiler in a factory in Springfield, Vermont at $18.00 for a six day week. He left the farm for work at 5:30 in the morning after doing some chores, and returned at 6:30 in the evening. He walked 3 miles each way. As a result, Frank and I did a lot of the farming, such as haying, plowing, cultivation planting, etc.
We had two beautiful Morgan horses which were used for farm work and driving. Both were also good saddle horses. They were sisters whose names were Kit and Topsy. Topsy and I were close friends. I could go out in the pasture and call her name and she would come to me. I could then jump on her back and ride all over with no saddle or bridle.

I was very sick with the flu in the Great Epidemic of 1918, and out of school for three weeks. When I was about to return, the school was closed for two weeks because it was so cold it could not be heated. The temp-erature never went above zero for two weeks and several nights the thermometer read 42 degrees below zero, the freezing point of mercury.

We moved to New Bedford, Massachusetts in the middle of my sophomore year in high school. I went from a school of 25 students to one of 1600 students, which was a big adjustment. Luckily I had had two excellent teachers in Charlestown. In my sophomore year they started football in Charlestown with a total of 13 boys in high school. Since I had played sandlot football in Framingham, I was elected Captain. I also played baseball in Charlestown.

The Charlestown school was three miles from home. In much of fair weather I walked, and when the horses were not in use, I rode horseback with a bag of hay tied to the saddle. In winter I drove in a small sleigh. Topsy was very fast. It has turned out that Manual Training was one of my most valuable courses.

Frank did 7th and 8th grades in a little one room schoolhouse near the farm. His teacher had just graduated from Claremont High School, but she must have been good for Frank transferred to New Bedford High School and went on to Harvard Engineering School where he went through on scholarships and made the Engineering Honor Society,

When the War ended, we moved to New Bedford, Massachusetts where Daddy was minister of the North-end church (Unitarian). I worked in a grocery and market store (Cummings and Cummings) which catered to people who spent $500.00 to $1000.00 per month on groceries in 1921. Colonel Green's bill was about $1500.00 per month. I worked every Saturday and vacations, but Mr. Cummings let me off whenever there was a ball game.

In high school, I was in the Scientific Group of about 25 who were given more advanced courses. I played basketball, baseball and football and made All-scholastic in the three sports.

I had planned to go to MIT, but my father, who was attending a program at Harvard in the summer before my senior year, visited both MIT and Harvard Engineering School, and found Harvard much more friendly. He asked me to come to Cambridge to visit both colleges. Prof. Dawes at Harvard was friendly and helpful, so I decided on Harvard, where I was accepted. (George Ross Elberfeld was born March 8, 1921 in New Bedford.)
In September 1922 I entered the Engineering School at Harvard in the Electrical Engineering Program. The only sport I could fit into my schedule was basketball which I played one year on the Freshman Team and three years on the Varsity Team. I graduated in 1926 with a BS in Electrical Engineering Degree.

I lived at college during my Freshman year because I had saved that much money. Daddy moved to the East Boston Church in the summer of 1923, so I lived at home and commuted during the next t~ years. I lived at the college again during my Senior year at Thayer, in the YARD. After my Freshman year I worked during the summer at the store in New Bedford. The next summer I worked as a camp counselor, and the third summer I worked for the New Jersey Public Service Company.

Daddy stayed in East Boston at the Church of Our Father until 1940 when he semi-retired by taking small churches in Warwick and Bernadston, Massachusetts. In 1945 the East Boston church asked him to return, he preached there until he died on April 25, 1953 at the age of 84. He never retired!

1926 was a depression year, so jobs were scarce, but my basketball got me a job as a student engineer at the General Electric Company in Lynn, Massachusetts. There I had 14 different jobs from testing motors to research and design of rectifiers. I was the captain of the CHAMPIONSHIP basketball team of the General Electric Company!

In September 1928, I left General Electric to return to the Harvard Engineering school to study Mechanical Engineering. Included in my program was a course in factory management at the Harvard Business School. Since my BS was in Electrical Engineering, I thought this degree would be a BS in Mechanical Engineering. I did not know I was to receive the MS in Mech-anical Engineering until I read it in the program at Commencement. I learned later that they had a special faculty meeting to vote me the Masters Degree. Frank also graduated with a ES in Electrical Engineering at the same time--- a BIG DAY for our parents. Frank immediately went to work for American Telephone and Telegraph Company and continued until his death on January 3, 1969.

June 1929 was again a tough time to get a job. I finally got one as an electrician's helper at the American Steel and Wire Company in Worcester, Massachusetts. I soon became the "trouble shooter" and rewound motors. The 1929 Crash came and many people were being laid off and I knew my turn would come, so I got a job with the Western Electric Company in Kearny, New Jersey as a planning engineer in August 1930. There were 83,000 people at Western Electric when I got the job, but in October 1931 when I was laid off, there were 7000 working half time. Three months later the plant was closed completely.

I was accepted in a Ph.D. program at the Harvard Engineering School, but I did not have enough money to go through with it. I decided that education would be a more stable field for me, so I went to the Harvard Graduate School of Education in the 1932 spring semester. That summer I worked as a Life Guard at Star Island in the Isles of Shoals.
I had money enough for only one course the next year, so I took the course which included practice teaching. I taught full time at Medford High School for nothing but credit for a year of EXPERIENCE!

The years from 1933 to 1937 were a hodge-podge of getting nowhere. I put my name in several employment and teachers' agencies and made the rounds about once every week. I tried for teaching jobs that paid only $600.00 a year, but there were always much more experienced applicants. In the summer of 1933, I took the Boston exams for temporary teachers and topped the PHYSICS list. The next summer I took it again and scored 396 out of 400 points to top ALL lists. This gave me part time work and one year I got a full year appointment. In the fall of 1933, I got a three month job as a recreational organizer for people over 16 years old. I worked again two summers on Star Island as Steward and as night clerk/night watchman. Other ways of earning money were repairing radios and selling magazines for Uncle Arthur Bourne, During this period, I did a lot of volunteer Social Work, After my year appointment, I bought a 23 foot sailboat for $150.00 and did a lot of sailing along the coast. I kept it at the Winthrop Yacht Club. I later sold it for $125.00 after much good sailing --- not a bad deal!

In the summer of 1933, I drove Mother and George to Quincy, Illinois to see Grandmother and Grandfather Bourne and Uncle Arthur Bourne, Uncle Arthur was entirely crippled by arthritis, but ran a very successful Magazine Agency from a wheel chair and a telephone. On the way home, we stopped in Sarnia, Ontario, CANADA to see Uncle Will Holton and Cousin Helen, and then went to Belleville, Ontario to see many Holton relatives. We finally drove home by way of Montreal and Quebec.

I had taken Economics in the Boston University Evening School during this period, also Leatherly courses in International Relations with Anton DeHass, and Monetary Problems with D.M. Sprague at the Harvard Business School. All of this got me my next job!

On a Friday afternoon in the spring of 1937, I received a telegram saying that a Dr. Ellingson would be at the Hotel Statler at 10:00 All the next day if I would be interested in teaching in Rochester, New York at the Rochester Atheneum and Mechanics Institute, I pressed my suit and went for the interview. They needed someone to teach mechanical engineering, industrial organization, and coach basketball, all of which I was prepared to do. Monday morning I received a telegram offering me the job at the unheard of salary of $1700 a year! No time was wasted in accepting the job! Nine enjoyable years were spent on that job. I coached for three years with my third year a winning season, We won nine out of fourteen games which was very good considering we were a three year cooperative school and we played only four year colleges.

From 1941 to 1945 I taught at the University of Rochester three -quarters time, teaching physics and radio engineering to the V-12 Navy students, In 1942 Harper Brothers published my first book, STRENGTH AND PROPERTIES OF MATERIALS.
Catherine Kyes had worked in the Rochester Public Library for a year
before I went to Rochester. She was the only person I knew there? so I looked her up. We were married on July 8, 1939 in Peterborough, Now Hampshire. Our honeymoon was a trip to Montreal, Quebec, up the Saguenay River, around the Gaspe Peninsula, into Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, and back to Sunset Lake in Greenfield, New Hampshire, where I cooked and Catherine wrote several hundred thank you notes. That trip took my whole bank roll of $100.00! Because we slept in a tent most of the time and ate a lot of shredded wheat, we made it!

Anne Kyes Elberfeld was born on March 22, 1941, and John Karl Elberfeld (Tiny) on February 20, 1945 in Rochester,

Among other job offers was one from Worcester (Mass.) Junior College which was just opening a day division. The job was DEAN OF ENGINEERING and teaching with a salary of $700 .00 a year more than I was receiving in Rochester. We took the job partly because we would be near all of our parents who were aging, and we wanted our children to know them. We moved to Westborough, Massachusetts at 26 Grove Street, thanks to Catherine's Cousin Mary Brigham, in 1946, where we still live today. I stayed in the Worcester Junior College job until I retired in 1972, In 1948 I was promoted to DEAN OF THE COLLEGE. The college grew to 1200 day and 1500 evening students.

In August 1970, I was given the job of establishing a new bachelor degree granting college, the CENTRAL NEW ENGLAND COLLEGE OF TECHNOLOGY. By working 60 hours per week, we opened the college in September 1971 with 51 day and about 85 evening students. I was appointed DEAN OF THE COLLEGE of the new college, and in 1972 received the first honorary degree given by the college, DOCTOR OF HUMANE LETTERS. I am in good company because Bob Hope was later given one.

In 1948 Prentice-Hall published my second book METALLURGICAL NATERIMS AND PROCESSES. Catherine did all the typing of the manuscript for this book with the background of just one half year of typing at SIMMONS SCHOOL OF LIBRARY SCIENCE. Did she ever learn accuracy and speed in a hurry!

In 1957 Catherine was cajoled into taking the job of setting up a new High School Library, Westborough's first, and then becoming the school librarian, a position she held until 1972. Meantime, in 1968 she organized and set up a second new school library in the town's latest NEW High School,

Anne graduated from High School in 1959, the top one in her class, and then went to RADCLIFFE COLLEGE where she graduated in 1963 with honors. She married Joel Anthony Huberman, who graduated Summa cum Laude from Harvard, on the Saturday after they both graduated, June 15, 1963. They spent the summer travelling in Europe and then they went to California where Joel earned his Ph.D. degree at the California Institute of Technology and Anne taught Physical Science at the Westridge School for Girls. Anne still loves teaching and is presently teaching part time at Buffalo State College where she will receive her Masters Degree in June 1981.

"Tiny' (John) started HARVARD in 1963 and graduated with honors in 1967.

He received his Masters degree from the University of Rochester in 1968 and started teaching at the Allendale School He is still there as HEAD OF THE SCIENCE DEPARTMENT.

We have all done a considerable amount of travelling. As a family, we took an 11,500 miles, 7 week trailer trip across the United States in 1955. In 1965 Catherine? "Tiny" and I took a 4,500 mile, 5 week automobile trip through 9 countries of Europe ending up in Finland with a visit with the family where "Tiny" had spent an AFS AMERICANS ABROAD summer in 1962. Since 1972, Catherine and I have taken many trips to Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Australia, and right in our good old USA.

In 1970 we bought a 22 foot McGregor VENTURE sailboat (SLOOP) on which we spend about 30 days each summer... sailing up and down the New England coast. We have also expanded the camp at Sunset Lake in Greenfield, New Hampshire. In 1965 we built and electrically heated A-frame. Two years later we built a Finish Sauna, and in 1979 we (the kids included) built a 10 ft, by 10 ft. stove heated cabin which is known as GRAMPY'S KIDS' KABIN.

Catherine and I are very lucky to have three very bright and interesting
granddaughters. "Tiny's" daughter, Heather Elizabeth Elberfeld, was born
on October 28, 1969, Anne's daughter, Julie Anne Huberman was born on February 28,
1970, and Anne's second daughter, Amy Laura Huberinan was born on December 20, 1973,
